Hosting-review.com was one of the review sites featured in my first video. The reason for a post on this site is a bit of an accident. After Fatcow (an Endurance International Group) host contacted me to let me know hostingsthatsuck.com had a disclosure notice up. Which happen some where around the time after I wrote Fatcow, and I was 2 days late from sending my notice. I thought I would check a few other hosts that were in my sights for for reviewing, Hosting-review.com was one of them. They do have a disclosure, which I had plan to review. But the weird thing is their site was okay last night, but this morning without even refreshing their site I get this:
Now this is only for Google Chrome not on Internet Explorer, Opera, and after having to re install the rather buggy Firefox it was not found there. Safari is acting buggy on my machine
