PSA: A bunch of LEB hosts deadpooling ArkaHosting, SupremeVPS, UMaxHosting, Hosting73, HostBRZ, Ku
edited January 2020 in General
Today, a whole bunch of LEB hosts sent out an email similar to this:
Dear Customer, Over the past few months we have been met with many challenges within the hosting business. Some that have not been overcome. As result of this we will be closing our doors. We will be shutting down this Monday 12/9/2019. We are taking this time to let our customers know so that they may backup and retrieve all of their data before then. We deeply apologize for this inconvenience. Thank You. Management --- Hosting73 https://www.hosting73.com
Here's a (growing) list of affected hosts:
UMaxHosting.com SupremeVPS.com HostBRZ.com SparkVPS.com BigFootServers.com SolvedByData.com N3Servers.com MegaZoneHosting.com KudoHosting.com HostedSimply.com WelcomeHosting.com KayHosting.com Hosting73.com UpbeatHosting.com LQHosting.com SnowVPS.com DCNHost.com StrongHosting.net ArkaHosting.com ServerStrong.com X4Servers.com TCNHosting.com SuperbVPS.com VPSFortune.com MyHostingSrv.com
Any more? I'll try to keep this list updated.
PS. Anyone who took the "free shitty shit hosting" from me is affected (and _possibly _caused) by this.
EDIT: Thanks for your contributions everyone! It's important people are aware of this so they can take action. Regardless of whether we all know the above are shit anyway, there are many of our new friends who have fallen victim and we are in a position to help them find something much better, right here within our awesome community.

Doesn't take a genius to figure out that it's a tiny group of people rotating shell companies to milk money out of fools.
Exactly, it's just that it really doesn't take a genius to get scammed by said people.
Wow I am so surprised that they deadpooled! Who would have thought of that?
I know right! I mean, they are premium and dedicated to customer service and OMG it's so unexpected!!!1111 /s
You can add DCNHost, ServerStrong, and LQHosting to your list also.
Done, thanks for your contribution
They had the decency of lasting around 6 months before.
I guess that no longer matters. Not surprising, given the state of things as of late.
While it was 100% totally expected from them, still have to give them credit for not disappearing suddenly without chance to recover your data.
At least they didn't deadpool overnight and am giving people until Monday to pull everything off their VPSs..
The question is how soon would they be back and under what name?
This is a very good point, it has given me time to alert the people who are on my free shitty shithost experiment to backup their miners and spam scripts lol
add stronghosting to the list
You left out:
I am a simple man. I see a company posting 'specials' on LEB, I fucking RUN!
@dahartigan Please help changing the thread title to include all the names, if it even fits
You can add Bigfoot Servers to the list also.
Could you please confirm the new title is suitable? Feel free to use your mod powers to edit my post if you want to
Called it back when HiFormance deadpooled
You mean that 4 GB RAM and 120 GB disk for $25/year isn't sustainable?!?! No way
Maybe it would be easier to post the names of any companies featured on LEB in the last year that aren't going under.
Honeslty i think everyone here should report colocrossing to the ftc at the very least, if not the irs for probable tax evasion.
There, I made the list for you.

Were they all run by the same person?
But know that @jbiloh and @cvps_chris had no idea that was the case. Promise.
Add Hosting73 to the list, por favor.
Yeah. ColonCrossing. That seems too be a real thing, unlike IPv6 - http://thebodyvr.com/colon-crossing/
Edit: Autocorrect, damnit.
Here's something interesting -
All these hosts are deadpooling within three days of announcing they are shutting down. 17 out of 18 of these hosts were featured on LEB within the past 2 months offering yearly contracted services. I guarantee no one is getting refunds from this (aside from charging back, which I suggest everyone starts considering right about now). Let me know if you're still having any issues seeing why no one trusts LEB/CC.
They were the very first one, in fact, Hosting73 is where my free shitty shit shithosting was served from
So you single-handedly upset their entire business model and got them in the red?
