    All hosting has it's times whether you're on a free host, low cost host or expensive host, you will get this, as data centers aren't always upfront as much as they should be to clients such as Bryan who runs the hosting.

    I'm not really sure what you're asking. What do you mean by have your sites back?

    Sorry but i got no warning and lots of people moaning.. All mail from this site is going into spam, this is not my fault.. The gentleman who has been doing the hosting I take my hat off too. I was not moaning at Bryan or you just asking for access to web site data so it could be relocated and stop others moaning at me "when can I have my site back" as for asking I had no access to whm last night and after reading the loosing hosting post I thought that was that and lost data..

    Hi, Bryan. Thank you for this update! Are you still accepting apps for free VPS, or do you have any idea yet how much they will cost?

    Yes, VPS are currently unaffected. It just has to do with cPanel raising their prices in a ridiculous fashion.

    You're good. No need to delete things...especially since you pay. :) Remember too that add-on domains do not count, just actual accounts. So you could literally (for now, until cPanel decides to be stupid) have 1000 add-on domains, and it doesn't cost a thing.

    Man, life took a huge uturn and I was out of everything. So I've been checking my old accounts to get back into old path and surprised to see that InstaFree is still going strong.

    @Bryan, you're one of the greatest person that I've met online. Thank you very much for keeping up your service with diligent & patience.

    PS: I can't believe that my forum account isn't deleted even though I've been inactive for almost 5 years. Thank again, @Bryan. :)

    No worries, and welcome back!

    We usually don't delete forum accounts. :) Whenever you're ready to get your website going again, just let me know.

    Does this announcement pertain to the Dallas server not delivering email, or being available, since about 10:30 am CDT today, August 21, 2020? My desktop email client points to dal.private-rack.com. Thanks for anything you can tell me.

    Everything should be working temporarily and will be working again completely in just a few. Email, or anything pointing to dal.private-rack.com never went down. The issue was with a single IP address, and only affected websites. No other services were affected on the server.

    It looks as if it may have been the old URL forwarding on my G8S domain that caused the problem, and I apologise to everybody for this. I will remove all URL forwarding software as soon as I am able to gain access.

    I'm not sure why this domain was targeted, as I haven't done much with it for quite some time. I would be grateful for advice from Bryan as to how I can avoid this in the future.

    @Fedora

    If I remember correctly, you had a link on the G8S.com forwarding site. I have removed the forwarding facility, so this will not work any more. Apologies for this, but I am not going to offer a forwarding service as a result of this problem.

    As a temp measure, I have parked this domain with name silo.
