Amateur Night at the Server Farm

Fasthosts
Our web hosting customers never experience slow-down or service interruptions.

Tell that to Boris! (Oh and yes, I do know what I am talking about when it comes to running a secure server bunker..)

Boris website down after legal row | New media | MediaGuardian.co.uk
Mr Johnson's site, www.boris-johnson.com, was also disabled because it is hosted by the same company, Fasthosts Internet Ltd, although the Tory London mayoral candidate had not himself written about Mr Usmanov.

Mr Johnson hit out at the closure of his website, calling it "a serious erosion of free speech".

"This is London, not Uzbekistan," the former Spectator editor and MP for Henley-on-Thames said.

"It is unbelievable that a website can be wiped out on the say-so of some tycoon.

"We live in a world where internet communication is increasingly vital, and this is a serious erosion of free speech."
...

Fasthosts Internet confirmed that Mr Johnson's site was disabled as part of a clampdown on a separate web address.
......the unfortunate result being the possible downtime of other unrelated websites ... of which we understand boris-johnson.com was one."

Who is the sysadmin for these chumps? Taking down a single website on a mass-virtual hosted web server is child's play. You don't need to take the entire machine offline, and in fact the interruption should not even be noticeable. If this is the sort of technical expertise these muppets display then everyone who has an account with them should run screaming to the hills.
