20 low cost Web Hosting providers to shut down Monday, giving customers 2 days to save data

At least 20 web hosting providers have notified customers that they will be shutting down on Monday, giving their clients two days to download data from their accounts before servers are shut down and wiped clean.

The list of providers that notified customers about their impending shutdown includes:

ArkaHosting
Bigfoot Servers
DCNHost
HostBRZ
HostedSimply
Hosting73
KudoHosting
LQHosting
MegaZoneHosting
n3Servers
ServerStrong
SnowVPS
SparkVPS
StrongHosting
SuperbVPS
SupremeVPS
TCNHosting
UMaxHosting
WelcomeHosting
X4Servers

All the services listed above offer cheap low-end virtual private servers (VPSes). The providers appear to be using servers hosted in ColoCrossing data centers.

I spoke to Ryan Woods, a support manager at a Toronto web hosting company who said this process is known in the idustry and called “deadpooling.” A web host will setup many websites, offer cheap VPS services and then shut down a few months later.
