At long last, Freakified.net has returned!
So, what happened?
Well, after Frozen Midnight Hosting (link still dead as of this writing) happily took my money, I was provided with some stellar service involving quite a bit of downtime. However, during my journey abroad, both Freakified.net and all of Frozen Midnight’s corporate sites went down completely, the latter being replaced with GoDaddy parking pages. After I returned, I began calling the owner’s personal phone number (which I had obtained from an excellent, free historical whois database, and leaving voicemails. I never received a response. Sending emails was also pointless, as all the domains at which they were hosted no longer existed. So I was stuck without a working site, and, more importantly, without control of the Freakified.net domain. (Having been registered through Frozen Midnight, I didn’t technically own the domain.)
As a last resort, I decided to try using internet phone directories to find potential alternate contact lines. After a few hours of searching, I was only able to dig up a single piece of information: the owner’s mom’s phone number. Reluctantly, I called the number, and the person who answered was (understandably), rather pissed off that I’d called. Nevertheless, she took down my info.
The next day, the owner of Frozen Midnight finally called me back, saying that he’d received a call from his mom, and that he would begin the transfer as soon as he had the necessary information. I thus left a message, and within a few days, I received an email notification from GoDaddy saying that the domain had been pushed onto my account.
As of today, Freakified.net is now hosted on HostGator, which had already impressed me with their service. Hopefully, they won’t turn out to be another Frozen Midnight.
In conclusion, Frozen Midnight is the greatest hosting company ever.
