Lunarpages Server Down !

Lunarpages Logo is one of the best webhosts I ever had.

On February 28th, I was not able to access the websites I host on their shared hosting server “SOL”.

The server down time was getting too much, I tried to call them, but no one was answering! so I sent an email to the helpdesk asking them for detailed information. here’s the conversation:


It’s been almost 2 hours that your server is down!!! what is wrong?! This is not acceptable!
You promise quality and best uptime but now!???
Please provide me detailed information about what is going on.
I’m in France and cant access the SOL server.
Domains I host on your servers are: , 

=====Lunarpages Response:======== 


We apologize for the inconvenience.

Our technicians are aware of the issue and are working on a speedy resolution.

The Sol server is being restored to a new server due to hardware issues. The server is not booting up after a brief power routage in our Las Vegas Data Center. Websites and email will start to function as they are restored. We are estimating that the server will be completely restored by 3pm Pacific time on 2/29/2008. Your site should be back up shortly.

Thank you for your patience.

Best Regards,

This is really headache and more , Jut think twice if you are planning a hosting company !

Lunarpages down for almost 22 hours. They don’t answer their phones, just a recorded message that “they are aware” and “they are working on it” with zero prognosis as to when it will be up. Help tickets are ignored until after the fact, then statements are made about them being down a few hours, 22 is NOT a few, well, 3 or more is a few, so 22 is QUITE A FEW. Their “chat” feature gets you nowhere, because once they find out you’re not a managed service customer, they refuse to talk to you… and give you a different phone number with an extension, where you can call and get NOTHING. Unbelievable service. Par for the course, I guess, as I have never gotten what I would call “good” service from them, and I’ve been there for at least five years. Time for a change.
