C I Host, a global leader in Web hosting and Internet infrastructure, celebrates seven years of continued growth and expansion this month. With more than 205,000 customers in 182 countries, C I Host boasts a solid financial footing and an array of products and services.

"In Internet terms, mere survival for seven years practically makes you an
institution," said C I Host CEO Christopher Faulkner. "And for us to have
experienced sustained growth is unheard of."

C I Host anticipated economic changes to successfully ride out the collapse
of the dotcom bubble and to continue organic growth. The company invested in a large, redundant and reliable network - now one of the largest privately
owned fiber-optic cable networks in the world. With more than 2.6 gigabits
of available bandwidth, C I Host can provide customers with virtually
unlimited bandwidth that is instantly scalable.

Its vast network is among the most secure in the world, withstanding the
increasingly prevalent attacks on all Internet entities. In January, within
24 hours of the MyDoom viral outbreak, C I Host developed, tested and
installed a virus filter called "Doompster" to eradicate the MyDoom worm
from the emails of its 205,000 clients.

The vision to quickly take advantage of opportunities when they arise
combined with C I Host's other strengths to make it the leader it is today.

    Unbelievable claptrap. You obviously simply reprinted a press release from CIHost without checking with the thousands of customers whose websites went out of business on March 20th because of CIHost's negligence. They were running outdated firewall software not recommended for their servers when the "Witty" worm exploited a vulnerability causing my website to be out of commission for 12 days. That was not the worst, however. They completely lost the data on our SQL Server and had no, I repeat, NO backups that they could recover, despite advertising daily backups with two week rotation of off-site tapes. NO BACKUPS. It cost me a $70,000 startup. This company is the worst of the worst.

    It just happened again. My sites all went down last Thursday (10/27/05) and as of today (11/7/05) they say they don't have any "recent" backup that they can restore from. I have been trying to get a straight answer from them for over a week, and have not yet gotten one. Often, when I call tech support, I get put on hold and then cut off to a busy signal. I'm still waiting for an answer. I'm searching the web for an open class action suit against them, but I haven't found one yet....
