Even if it is $500 / month dedicated server, best you'll do with just about any hosting provider is get prorated billing for the downtime, or maybe a free month or two. I'm certain there is something in the SLA that says what happens if the uptime promise isn't met, and that it is up to you to make sure your data is backed up.
I know people hate to hear it when data is lost, but if you lose data (especially *critical* data) in this kind of scenario (or any real-world production environment) in this day and age, it really is your own fault...

|jheizer||Yup, last time I was down for 48 hours, total data loss, no compensation at all, and worthless communication. I am a "backup whore" so I had plenty of remote backups to get back up and going once they were back online.|

I agree that the way they handled this was mind-blowingly unprofessional... 12+ hours of downtime before even sending out a notification, and when I submitted a ticket after 3+ hours of downtime, I got this cryptic response "We are working on the issue and will be issuing a statement shortly" -- wtf?? Even if they don't have all of the details they should've been way more proactive about this. Yes, downtime is bad, but if the customer has to contact the host about an incident like this, that just makes it worse.
But, seriously... for a vps at this price from a place with this reputation, if anyone wasn't managing their own backups, or running in production on this VPS without any kind of redundancy, they were basically inviting this headache. These days, there just really isn't any reason for someone to not have backups of their own critical data, and some sort of redundancy / quick-restore plan.

|jheizer||sucks. Every one thought we were crazy when we said it happened to us before. Thankfully I am still up during this down. I would have moved off right away if I had not prepaid a year.|
