  • Backup backup and backup. Don’t think it can’t happen to you because it can and possibly will. I’ve had my scare, but not near as scary as yours.

    We live and learn I suppose. I am amazed that after almost a month of blackout you are back in business, better than ever. The old phoenix rising from the ashes 🙂

    Congrats on still having a great film site.

    One last tip: When you are able to, leave bluefur. Paying almost $80 per month for dedicated hosting is definitely not necessary.

    Wish you all the best my friend!

  • Thanks Jorn.

    Jorn, this situation happened months ago (Nov. 2008 – January 2009). I am already with a new host.

    “When you are able to, leave bluefur.”
    I already have.

    “Paying almost $80 per month for dedicated hosting is definitely not necessary.”
    I mentioned that to them in The Situation. In my mind I had no choice. I wanted my site fully restored. In the end, it never was. They said it would be after the dedicated server purchase and yet…

    Its important to make regular backups of your web site because you can’t trust the hosting company to be reliably backing up your site. Also, before choosing a web host, search for reviews on them on Google. This will give you an idea what their customers thought of them and how the host responded to complaints.
