Godfree at Gamertag Radio just informed us that Gamertag Radio has been shut down without warning by his hosting company and held at ransom to bring it live again. Here’s the email they sent him:
Your site gamertagradio.com was suspended because it consumed an excessive amount of resources. One of our techs was doing a routine check on the server, and your site was consuming more than 4.62% of the servers RAM, more than 1.93% of the server CPU and more than 14% of the server MySQL resources. Our policy is 10% of the entire servers resources.
O RLY? Maybe you could have told him about this hidden fee so he could decide whether he could afford the price hike before you instantly dropped his site after four years and demanded more money to bring it back up? That’s what I call extortion. If you’re with me, why not contact midphase and leave them a poignant note about their shady business practices?
