Part of the HEG group. I have no idea why anyone would use them… this isn’t the first time.
As much as I empathize with the users’ plight- unless you’re paying like $50/mo for cold storage backups ATOP services, how can you expect a cheap host to keep your services backed up 100% to date, with a hot-cutover and everything replicated.

If you’re relying on

123reg isn’t a brad name I’ve heard in AGES. This thread gives me both nostalgia and pity
