Hosting take hostages

January 15, 2010

Hosters take hostagesWe would like to apologize for the inconvenience. Some of visitors of our website could see instead of the normal content of Codyssey this frustrating note: “Account suspended! Please contact the billing department as soon as possible on billing[at]justhost.com.”

This message does not mean that we did not pay for the hosting or have any debt. That means that the popularity of our website has reached the threshold, when the hosting provider (in our case – the Justhost) has a strong sense of loss of profits. When they see that the website is valuable they

It is very disappointing. Almost every hoster claims unlimited traffic, 100% uptime and lots of services included in the basic account. When your website appears to be popular or valuable, a hosting provider makes this ugly motion. They simply block an account. All the content turns a hostage of a service provider. Hosting suspends your account to force you paying much more than you did before just to release your data from their grasping hands. Does it make sense?

We do not say that Justhost are too greedy. We say that a service provider should have sent a warning note before taking restrictive actions. Suspending account without any notification does not add to their credit.

It looks like hosting of websites with low-cost hosting providers is as risky as sailing near Somali costs. You never know when they take your website hostage.

Dear all,

It is really amazing that our first freeware has gained that much attention. Thank you! Thanks to those who posted their reviews and thanks to those who ranked Freeraser, thanks to those who reported bugs and special thanks to those who wanted to contribute.
We have received lots of e-mails. Some of you offer translation of the software to local languages. When we started this project we were not planning to apply too much effort and to make it really big and commercial. But thanks to your e-mails we have changed our mind. No, it will not become commercial, at least not now. But we will make it even better.
We are going to:

  • Implement Multilingual support
  • Improve the performance to make it faster
  • Implement some other changes that were offered by you, e.g. the notification before destruction, and more

We believe that you will like Freeraser even more after we make these changes.

And here are some resources that helped us to gain that high recognition in such short time:
