    Hello everyone! I'm having a big problem...
    My hosting company (http://hiya-host.com) decided to shut down without any notice. I had a graphics/tutorials site and I worked so hard on it! I uploaded all of my files to my host and now they shut down and I didn't download a backup. I had it once on my computer, but I thought it was so huge, so I deleted it. I tried so many different programs to restore the files, but no luck. So, I just want to ask you guys, is there any way to get my files back or are they gone forever?

    could try a google cache. Have you contacted them to see why they did this?

    Thanks for the reply! I tried Google cache, but I can't save the actual files, like .zip and .php files.
    They had a contact form on their website but I can't access it, cos the site is down. I found admin's email through WHOIS, but I didn't get a reply, so I've no idea what else I can do... :ermm:

    Wow ... what kind of idiot is (was) running that hosting company!? I mean ... you don't shut down without advising your clients?!!?

    Keep bugging them at the very least.

    Really sorry to hear that!
