I just got this email. I had a feeling they would be shutting down soon. I am definatly in the process of moving to a new server so some delays will be experienced for about 72 hours once I update the DNS.
Well, it's been a rough month. I would like to start out by apologizing to
everyone for the down time and unreliability that vBulletinHosting.com has
been having of late. Unfortunately, we have been unable to provide the
level of service that all of you deserve. vBulletinHosting.com is a great
idea and I know there is a market for the service we have been providing
but unfortunately, we can no longer provide it.
Effective August 15, 2002, vBulletinHosting.com will be shutting down. It
was not an easy decision and of course, you will not be billed for 15 days
we will be up in August, the last invoice or receipt you received is the
last one we will issue you for this service. If you need help retrieving
your database between now and then, please send an email to
If you are an ASP customer and want to keep your board and move it to
another host, you will need to purchase a license from vBulletin for the
software. You can find the details for this at
It is with sincere regret that we are having to close this service and we
wish you all the best in building your communities. If you have any
questions, don't hesitate to email us.
