    I have a site hosted at WebHostingPad.com and they are down and took all their sites down with them.....Not good...this is costing me some serious dough!

    Anyone know somebody at that company!?

    I've used them. This is nothing new with webhostingpad. Its a cheap host but you get what you pay for. I only host my blogs on there because if my blogs go down then its no big deal. I'd suggest switching hosts once your plan is expired.

    I don't know anyone there, but just had a little search for the name over WHT and the first page or results doesn't look great.

    "Webhostingpad's affiliate system is just a scam"
    "webhostingpad's organized theft"
    "WebHostingPad Worst Hosting Provider Ever"
    "webhostingpad makes me angry and won't refund my money"
    "WebHostingPad down 8-10 times in a week"

    All hosts get some bad reviews, but I didn't see one good thing on the first page of results. If I was you I'd move your sites as soon as possible.

    It's one thing to go down, but it seems their entire site is gone....I gotta find a backup...I know I have a database backup today...not sure about the rest :(
