I just re-opened the website. I recovered some articles and tutorials. I will publish the missing tutorials in the following weeks.
Today I though I will have a heart attack. This morning I received an email from the company that hosts my website, PSD Box. This is the email they sent me:Hello,
The account [link] is terminated due to violation of AUP.
Please refund remaining fees for period unused (subject to a minimum charge of 1 month service).
Don't hesitate to contact us if you require any further assistance.
I just purchased "a better" hosting plan with 200GB of space because my website was getting bigger. All in all, the space that I used until this day was about 400MB out of 200GB.
I was in shock and I was wondering why the hell they closed my website. I asked what exactly I did wrong and this was their response.Dear Andrei Florin Oprinca,

So, in other words, this is the end of PSD Box. I was planing to add some awesome tutorials and resources there but it seems like it will not gonna happen. I still have the domain name until january or february 2011 but I will not remake the website. It's too much work that has been lost. I will not do it alone. If somebody wants to help me rebuild it it's welcomed, I will pay all hosting and stuff but I can't write articles and provide resources all by myself, not again, it's too much stress and too much work for a single person.
Damn, I invested so much time on that website
This was my last response to the hosting companyWell, that service is a shit in any case. I've never seen that before on any hosting company. What really hurts me is that I can't get a damn backup of my files. Those files are mine no mater what's you policy, you can't just delete people's files. I can't believe they didn't even make a backup for at least 24 hours. Its unacceptable. I'm gonna write a review on all web web hosting review sites. I'm so fucking pissed.
Have a nice fucking day cause I'm not.
