I’m so sorry the site was down for the last week. I was just as sad as some of you were. 😦
Here’s what happened. I moved my site to paid hosting with a company called WebHostGiant (Webintellects, Inc.) in September. The plan I bought is advertised as having Unlimited Web Space and Unlimited Bandwidth (unlimited internet traffic) for all sites that are not web portals/forums, gaming sites, galleries, download sites, streaming audio/video and chat sites. Sites that fall in those categories have a limited bandwidth per month. Since my site is a personal blog, it doesn’t fall under any of those categories.
Here’s where the problems came up. For some arbitrary reason, WebHostGiant decided they consider my blog a “web portal,” which they define as “Web Portals/Communities/Forums – Any sites that have members and/or forums.” They suspended my site, and gave my no notice until after the fact, leaving me unable to access my files and move my site for the remaining days in November. They wanted me to pay more for more bandwidth, but I didn’t think that was right considering I had paid for a plan was for “unlimited bandwidth” already. Now that it’s December and a new month, I requested that my site be put back online, and I can access my blog files again. Doesn’t that suck?
The whole situation has been a real pain. I guess I’ll move my site back to wordpress, but since I paid for a year contract with WebHostGiant, I feel cheated and really annoyed. Lesson learned: Don’t used WebHostGiant – Webintellects, Inc.
Anyway, I’m glad to be back!
