And draft week to boot.. that blows... then sucks, then blows again.

Wonder if we can pull a Florio and host the site temporarily on another host. :lol:

To be honest you should just get a new webhost, there's plenty of them out there that have reliable (and American) tech support. Plus, to transfer the site all you should have to do would be to download the database through phpmyadmin, copy the files over to the new host and then recreate the database through phpmyadmin with the file you downloaded. I've done this a few times.

If it goes as I was told, there shouldn't be any issues. Now I just received and email saying its going to be down for 30 days.


I'm completely freaking confused on all of this. The support people have really strong accents and its hard to understand them. I have a backup of the entire website on my laptop and I'm constantly taking backups of the database. So if the worst happens, it'll be down for a day at the most.

What will i do!?!?

The large files, ie Videos will take some time for me to upload again. We WILL be back to full force that I can assure you. I am a data pack rat and I have everything stored on my desktop or laptop, if not both.
