Got a call from a new client who has been unable to access his site for quite a while and unable to get anyone from his hosting service on the line.
After many hours, we were able to ascertain that his original hosting company was bought out by a larger one and they completely screwed up the transfer of old accounts to brand new servers.
Further complicating things was the fact that this new hosting company had a completely strange control panel that contained no methods of editing pages that were all HTML pages - the old site was not on any kind of content management system and used templates that were enitrely hidden from any site admin. In other words, the site could not be easily updated or moved anywhere else!
This is a common problem with so called "free website builders" (see the article HERE). When you use these "free" tools, you wind up with a site that will only work on the hosting environment it currently sits on. You can't move it if you find a better host.
Bottom line is that this is not the way to go. Build your site on a content management system like Drupal or Wordpress!
