Dreamhost just fucked me.

Two days after I extended my contract for another year - and paid $240 for it - Dreamhost suspended my account. They did it because of my mother's domain.

They gave me no warning; I got an email from some bot, saying that my account was permanently disabled. My site is gone, and so far, so are EFED, Lanzenritter, Icy Flames... this is a major problem.

And I paid them a few days ago. That is what's most infuriating; it's like they waited for my re-registration, and then went "OK, we got our money! Pull him!". This... is unacceptible. But due to the volume of warez that my mother had up, I worry that I don't have a legal leg to stand on.

Anyone that didn't have backups, I'm very, very sorry.

EDIT: Someone needs to tell Eaichu. ASAP.

EDIT2: Emails, you can go to superbus@velthomer.net

EDIT3: OK, maybe not. Try superbus@gmail.com

You should call them. There's gotta be a way to smooth this over, they can't do that to you!

...and just now I noticed the word "warez".

Does your mother know the warez on her site caused your account to get suspended? That's...pretty irresponsible, no offense to your mother.

... guh, that's made of major fail.

No matter the reason they have for disabling it, they can't have money for a service they didn't provide - that's earning money without a cause. Although the warez we uploaded can be used against you, so they do have a fair upper hand... guh.

I guess it's time to ressurect the old "Dreamhost sucks!" choirs of FESS3 era...

Dreamhost's TOS states that "dedicated servers are non-refundable even if the service is terminated before the end of the contract".

Which is made of even more fail.

As far as I'm concerned, you fucking paid for it, they should leave you the fuck alone.
Jan. 4th, 2007 04:20 am (UTC)
He may have paid for it, but when he did he signed an electronic contract stating that he would not deal in warez. If they just "left him alone" then the legal ball would likely end up in THEIR court if the lawyers came to call. I can't say I hold it against them for covering their own tails on this one.

I emailed Eaichu.

This sucks a mighty dick.
Jan. 4th, 2007 04:07 am (UTC)
...the timing on that is retarded. D:
Jan. 4th, 2007 04:14 am (UTC)
Ouch. >_< wow, that external hard drive proved to be timely

You're right, the timing on that's messed up. >:( Although...how long did your mother have the warez up? I hope you can at least get your money back, best case of course getting the account back. ;_;

At least the email's still working [I just tried it]. Though wait...if mine's working, yours should too. o_0
Jan. 4th, 2007 04:18 am (UTC)
Email is definately NOT working. I tried sending email from my Google account to Superbusnet.com, and it was bounced back.
Jan. 4th, 2007 04:21 am (UTC)
I hate to ask, but I must: How is this going to affect Velthomer?
Jan. 4th, 2007 04:24 am (UTC)
I don't think it will. Unless some images are dead, but those are replaceable. Everything else is hosted by Velthomer.

Maybe a posting saying what happened to Superbusnet, and to be aware, is in order by people that actually can post to the announcements forum?

Actually, I might have your backups. I took them when you were last doing your "I'm going to kill it all!" routine.

Looks like that's the end of EFED. I don't have a single backup to stand on.

Sorry that the rest of your work has been taken down.
As for the people e-mailing me, that would be enough. I've received 20 thus far, though I don't think it's fault of this entry. But a reminder to people that think I need to be informed, no need, thank you for the time.

Ah fuck man, that blows. Sorry to hear about that.
Jan. 4th, 2007 04:44 am (UTC)
Grah. Another outcry of "Dreamhost sucks!"?
Jan. 4th, 2007 05:04 am (UTC)
Aren't they supposed to warn you in advance? give you time to remove it and shit? You're a paying customer, a "do this or die" warning would be nice.
Jan. 4th, 2007 05:05 am (UTC)
Technically, no warning was necessary.

But this would have been my third year, AND I have another account with them.

...I... think most of my site is backed up on my laptop (since I was redesigning it) so I probably have lost some music and musicals. Ah shit, this sucks. I hope you can get it back soon ;_;
Jan. 4th, 2007 02:07 pm (UTC)
Between this or their overcharging for bandwidth without telling anyone, I officially believe Dreamhost sucks major ass. When lacus gets back from vacation, I'll check with her to see where we're hosted.

Rrnnf. That's a steel pole to the virtual groin. :-(
