    I have a few domains on optimalhosting.com which I would like to get in use, but I can't point them to my DNS since Optimal Hosting's cPanel is broken. Their live support is never online, they don't answer any mails and their Twitter has been dead for over a year. It feels like they have just abandoned the service completely. Anyone who is sitting on some info regarding this?

    Does Optimal Hosting do domain registration? Unless they do (I don't see it), can't you just change the nameservers on your registrar and upload the backup (if you have one) to your new host...?

    You thought it appropriate to advertise your services here when he was not asking to buy anything?

    Seriously?

    I can only thank him for bumping my thread. No way I am buying shit from that sloppy uncustomized website which he has spent 10 seconds on setting up. TopSeoHosting, most stupid combinations of letters in a word my eyes has ever seen.

    Totally free for a month, because everyone is looking for one months hosting. You got to be kidding.

    I have tried to contact them a number of times. They ignore me completely. They haven't posted anything on their social media for almost a year.
