Their support is ridiculous, when I contact them asking about it they reply with:
Quote:
We can have one of our technicians look into the situation for £60 + VAT per half hour, if the cause if hardware related we will refund you the costs.
I don't really trust them for wanting me to pay them first, incase it is a hardware problem and they don't own up to it so they can keep the money.

I'm with www.fasthosts.co.uk and only just recently I decided to look at a few reviews about them and a lot of people have done nothing but complain about their service.

I will try contacting them again though.

When I am clicking to restart the server from my control panel its not even starting up, it's going straight back down again, over and over. But if I leave it until the morning it will start to work again straight away, it's been doing the same thing for the past week or two.

Then it is surely hardware related, could be overheating of components.

I have emailed my host asking them to take a look at the server.

Will more than likely be sometime tomorrow when I get a reply now though since its after 5 PM here, I'll post an update once I receive a reply from them.

Thanks for all your support up to now, I really appreciate it, thanks
