Re: [epub] hosting services??
From: Eva Almeida <>

Hi Ray and Cathy,

I just have to comment on this one.  I have been with CIHost since
last October and had no complaints until just recently.  True, they
usually didn't know what needed fixing easily, but I didn't need
customer support that often over the past year.

But I have been very disappointed in their service in December.
My email was bouncing back to all my clients and business
associates, which they did fix.  Then I couldn't FTP to my site
for 5 days, then my whole site was down for 3 days (no
email either!)  What really bothers me is that I never received
an email from them warning me of what was coming and they
always said that it would be fixed by the night that I phoned.

If something like this can happen to a top-rated webhost than
it can happen to all.  I think that it is a good idea to have back-up
email services that you can fall back on.  

The reason it was down is that they were transferring all the domains
to a new server, which took them MUCH longer than they had

Happy New Year!
