    Anyone els get screwed by tmzhosting?

    After ticketing why my hosting had been down , a few days later i got an answer. Basically it says, we screwed up, sorry abotu yoru luck, and have a nice day.
    p.s here is a crappy coupon for your troubles



    Dear Valued Client,

    Protecting our client’s account information is a top priority, and we value the trust you place in TMZHosting. Regrettably, errors with non-redundant server setup have caused us to write this email. As is the case with many companies that maintain databases of information.

    Due to the significant amount of uncertainty in determining which accounts may have been impacted, TMZHosting felt that it was in your best interest to take the precautionary steps of reaching out to you and all clients regarding this issue. In addition, we are asking all of our clients to use a different proxy host and restore their backups (where necessary).

    Due to the damage caused by this server malfunction we have created an affiliation with another proxy hosting provider that would give you the best level of quality services for 65% OFF if you use coupon code “***” (Without Quotes) when you sign up (Valid until January 30th). If you need any help signing up with TechEntrance please e-mail us at support@tmzhosting.com or contact TechEntrance. You can view all their plans below this email with the links to sign up.

    We believe these actions are the responsible steps to protect the trust you place in TMZHosting. We will continue to share information with you about the enhancements we are making. We will also be discontinuing our proxy services.

    You should probably edit out that coupon code so people don't abuse it, since its supposed to be only for former tmz clients and techentrance is a good host..

    Yep I got the same. I've already got all mine from tmz moved over to O2 Proxy for now. Would've moved them 2ish days ago when this first started but they seemed confident in fixing the problem when I first ticketed them. Sucks.

    Now I'm just waiting on hearing back if I'll get the next 2 months equivalent refunded to me, since I pay quarterly and just paid up earlier this month. I better since it's them whom decided to shut down the server and not me deciding to just leave.

    thanks but i already picked up a vps and got it configured and secured, installed php nginx ect.
    Now i need to block unwanted traffic at the firewall and upload my sites.

    Ive never used a un-managed server for proxies, is there anything specific I should do that I may be missing or that will help performance?

    if i hadn't chose to take things into my own hands, I think i would have went with o2 proxy hosting
    people around these forums seem to like the service, not to mention its cheap =)

    just a thought: is the techentrance coupon for first month or for as long as you remain with them?

    I recommend VPS.net, which is a scalable VPS in the cloud starting at about 20$ a month.
    Nodes (CPU power, bandwitdh, diskspace) can be added or removed instantly as needed. PM me for link and 25% coupon.
