Avoid Altaway.com

I hosted my web page on Altaway.com. Their usage policy disallowed "audio/video archives", but their server was configured to server MP3 files, so I put about a dozen MP3 files on the server. These were of old, out-of-copyright music that I had laboriously made from cassettes. I deleted my local copies, figuring that they were safe on Altaway.

Several months later, these files abruptly disappeared! Altaway had simply deleted them, without notifying me before or after. To make matters worse, they didn't have a backup of the files.

So avoid Altaway if you want reliable web service.
