Saturday, April 14, 2007Worst Webhost ever?
I just discovered today that two of my websites hosted by Brinkster were deleted without warning. One was www.caperdu.com that is the sales site for a vacation house in France and this happens to be peak booking season. The other was for www.isoga.net which was just a bunch of fun but the files don't exist anywhere else.
There reason was that I was a free account and I hadn't logged in for 6 months. The thing is, I often don't log in for 6 months and it has never been an issue. Also, they couldn't even be bothered to send me a warning email.
Webhosts are entrusted with people's important files - Brinkster obviously doesn't take their responsibility seriously. I'm a much bigger fan of LunarPages.
