A few months in I noticed that all the Wordpress sites I hosted on there were hacked. I googled around and found other people on Servage with the same issue.
I also had a client with a flat HTML site, his site too was hacked.
I've never bothered with them since, but a recent friend needed a site up pronto, no budget for design, no budget for hosting. I mentioned Servage (my mistake) and suggested Ilysis (I use them now, as well as Linode and Media Temple) and I let him decide, unfortunately he went for Servage. Initially I thought that perhaps they've improved their service over the years but I was wrong.
Yesterday I got this message from them:
::We have unfortunatele to notify your about a total loss of your Webhosting content.
::We unfortunately had to face a total loss of the entire storage device that also stores your account data due to a corrupted RAID array, that is caused by the failure of multiple harddisk in it. The Harddisks are unfortunately not accessable anymore, so we cant make any attempts to recover the array.
::We are very sorry about this issue and kindly ask you to reupload your accounts content.
Nicely written huh?!
Being a Wordpress site I've lost all site content and have to rebuild it from past emails. I went to use their wordpress auto installer and it's amazingly installed a German version of Wordpress!
Over it. Had to vent. Please avoid Servage at all costs.
I have made a few several backups onto my hard-drive as well as my email. I try and backup once a week if possible.
I use webcity which are Australian based company and have got a few clients on there as well over the years. Very reliable and they even have backup to offshore (as in overseas). If anyone is looking for hosting be sure to check them out.
