I received disturbing news this morning from a top Internet marketer and entrepreneur, Nerrisa Oden (also known as The Video Queen):
On Thursday, http://www.freevideocoding.com, was shut down without warning. I saw the situation this morning and began working with my webhost of 6 years to get it back up. But they refused citing it had exceeded its’ unlimited bandwidth amount. (I’m not making this up!)
“Just upgrade me,” I said.
“No. We don’t offer upgrades,” powweb.com said.
So I immediately changed to another web host company. During this process http://www.freevideocoding.com was offline. Currently it’s new servers are being propogated across the Internet. It’s happening fast so everyone should have full access by the end of the day Saturday.
Again, the interruption in service should be minimal and well worth the move. I am just sorry that it happened suddenly and without warning.
It takes about 48 hours under the best of circumstances to migrate web hosting to a new Internet service provider if you have time to plan for it.
To cut off a customer of 6 years with no notice who is operating within the published parameters of “UNLIMITED Data Transfer” and “UNLIMITED Disk Space” is absolutely unforgivable.
By the way, if your Internet business is dependent on PowWeb, caveat emptor–let the buyer beware!
For this action, “PowWeb, The Perfect Hosting Solution,” is hereby entered in our Business Execution Hall of Shame! Congratulations, PowWeb.
