Man Down!

man_down

Got an email yesterday (I think, I was out on my stag do) from those nice folks at 123-reg.com, informing me that “we ran a dodgy script, it deleted a shitload of your websites and data, really sorry to all those people who didn’t maintain their own backups, etc.”. Brilliant.

Luckily, I don’t really have a vast customer database, so it’s not catastrophic to my still-dormant company, but it’s certainly given me pause for thought.

I will need to (probably) manually re-upload and reconfigure the entire site/DB. Fairly annoying, to say the least.

Been looking at 1&1 or GoDaddy as potential service replacements. Will update as required.
