Earlier today, our hosting account was suspended by HostGator. We spent about 10 hours or so suspended. Obviously, we were tearing our hair out the whole time trying to get things fixed.
What was the problem? Well, we don’t like naming names, but PayPal pretty much screwed us over today. They refunded into our account a hosting payment that we had already made to HostGator and proceeded to “limit” our PayPal account.
Because we made a payment while logged in from Kenya, our homeland.
Apparently, folks from Kenya (and Africa) are hardened internet criminals who are guilty until proven innocent. Go figure. We had to suffer the indignity of suspension while we proved our innocence to PayPal.
Sigh. Should this kind of stuff still be happening? PayPal? Come on!
Anyway, we apologise for any inconvenience to anyone trying to access our sites during this period. We would like to let you know that we are profitable and not in danger of going anywhere anytime soon.
Thanks for using DukaPress, and for your time and well wishes.
