Servage.net legal issue!

    I hosted some sites with servage.net
    And after a mail complaint they decided to whipe my entire account clean.
    FTP was clean and the DataBases also got lost!

    We apperantly violated their ToS and UAP.
    Reason was: We had copyrighted material online!

    Which we most definate not had!

    After some communicating with them they could not say with what I violated rules.
    So I apperantly I got removed for other reasons which they not tell...

    Please give me your opinion:
    Should I sue servage.net for data loss. Which we had!
    SEMrush
    Or should I move on and laugh about it and get another host?

    I've had problems with Servage too. My site was running extremely slow (1-2 minutes to load a simple page). I've posted a lot of support tickets and each time they said that everything runs well and there's no problem. I have paid upfront for 6 months and I have left after three months. I haven't got any refund and now they are spamming my email address with "Great Come-Back Offer (20% Discount)!".

    Please tell everyone about them at http://www.hostrisk.com/web-hosting-reviews/servage-reviews/. This is my site and I don't want to post reviews yet, I want to get reviews from other users.
    I'm a web designer and I've been working with many hosts, but Servage is by far the worst of them.

    Well that e-mail spamming sounds..... they spam my mail with: pay for the next renewal daily and the renewal is in about 3 months!!!

    They advertise with 160GB daily traffic.
    In my honest opinion they find a reason to kick a user that nearly reaches half that traffic. Overselling bitches I may say!

    I opend several tickets and mail conversations and none could resolve or tell me which file actually broke their ToS or UAP.
    So I got kicked and my files deleted for breaking ToS or AUP and they can't tell me which file broke it... Sounds a bit fishy right?

    I think I'll take the loss and stop spending time on this.

    I told them to choke on another thing that wouldn't be decent to repeat here!

    You are right on that I just recieved my daily renewal mail!
    They have great offers nowadays which I will decline!

    I was fucking lucky to back-up all ftp files two days before this issue.

    BTW they have a bug in their control-panel which lets you back-up databases! Even if the account is canned!
    It where my databases right?

    And there is an XSS in the control panel.....

    They are as trustworthy with your files as putting your dick in a polar bear his mouth!

    Well it isn't the money I'm bitter about.
    I trusted them with my files and my users information.
    Which I nearly lost (I had 2 of mine forums over there).

    You simply lose trust from your users if things like this happen and I as site-admin is the one to blame in the view of my users!

    I read the servage ToS and with none I would violate it so I thought it was good to go.

    So if anyone has some OS or public domain files to share (they must be over 100MB and get at least 100 downloads a day).
    I have stil 3 months, I'll provide ftp!
