    Affordablehost
    Anyone else here use affordablehost (They used to be hostdeal)

    The quality of hosting and their support seems to have dropped right off recently.

    I now have two domains down as they seemed to have semi-outsourced the sites to dotamerica.com

    Now their support ticket system is inaccessible (well from here in the UK it is ) and the generic support email no longer works.

    I used them for a few years and they used to be great.

    Over the past 6 months or so, they have gone from bad to worthless. Several 'outtages' lasted so long and were handled so badly that I truly suspect that they did it on purpose to piss off and drive away clients that were grandfathered into the lower rates from before the company got sold.

    Thanks for those couple of snippets

    Now I will see if I can get a refund for the new domainn that has yet to be up long enough for me to do more than put a test home page up.

    The other one I will pull and put somewhere else.

    PS Nice to think that, unlike affordablehost, ABW always works and one gets really helpful and useful advice.
