I am probably a bit late in doing this as I have been AWOL for a couple 
weeks and only today found out about pghoster's disappearance.

I would like to ask for help from anyone-- ex-customer of pghoster or not-- 
regarding the disappearing the pghoster web hosting company (which was 
listed on I am trying to track down the company to a) find 
out what happened to my site and my data, b) get back my data, c) ensure 
that the data I entrusted with them is not being misappropriated, and d) 
resolve any other disputes with them. Of course, if anyone has already 
successfully done this, please tell me!

I have located pghoster's founder but haven't heard back from him. I also 
called the number that was listed with my credit card company and it goes 
to an unrelated person's voicemail.

Primarily, I'm just trying to get my data back. (I know, I should have 
backed up more often, but I unfortunately started to believe the hosting 
site's claims about backing up and having my data available and so I got 
lazy in doing it myself and haven't done it in a while). Not to mention 
that I think that pghoster owes its former customers-- both legally and 
ethically-- more than we got (which was nothing-- no notice, no 
explanation, no refund, no data, no contact info, no nuthin).

Thank you,
