Surprising to me!

I'm checking their pricing on WHT and it isn't terrible. The only thing I could see being an issue is the free domain.

Was the last offer I could find.

If they could keep a customer for past a month or so, the domain would be paid off (assuming it was a cheap domain and they used something like an ENOM reseller).

The website looks like a template, alas.

There is nothing that I Jaye more than the legal munbo junbo used when hosts fail due to 'unforseen circumstances'.
 I know, right? Can you imagine if a host told you they were shutting down due to "forseen circumstances"? "Yeah, we're expecting to shut down pretty soon because we suck at business. Wanna buy a VPS?"

^--- this :)  Glad to see you Mr. Strout!

Unforeseen?  Like what you ran out money for dope that keeps you animated?   Your heart stop pumping through those cold veins?  Perhaps you were in an industrial accident with a chipper that ate your arms?   

Yeah, people really go out of their way to act like English is their 4th language in their times of "distress".

"Hello customers.  We are writing to tell you effectively immediately you are as screwed as we are, maybe more.  Hurry, backup all your data before our upstream yanks us offline for months of overdue invoices."
