That’s just bleeding grand!! I got up this morning; all my websites are down and I find this message on my hosting provider’s website:
We’re so regret to inform you that Lnc-Hosting is out of business. Web-based, pop3, incoming/outgoing email and ftp are still working normally. However, if you need your websites up, you need to re-add them via Hosting Control panel at http://188.8.131.52:8181
FTP IP: 184.108.40.206
Before re-adding your websites in HC, you need to delete it first by clicking on Properties then click Delete from database but make sure to DOWNLOAD your DATA first.
Please note that the server will be disconnected by the end of this month (2/28/2006)
I’m sure “they’re so regret”, as they say above; but it’s a major pain in the neck to find another hosting provider, transfer all my websites to them and rebuild the whole thing from the gound up! Just the sort of thing I wanted to be doing over the next week .. NOT! Thanks very much mate, just because you can’t be arsed coping with some work, you decide to shut down your business .. probably lie low for a few months and then start up the same thing again! I’ll be looking for a more reputable hosting company next time!
