but when a host has screwed up, the host has screwed up.
And hosts will screw up. You have my personal guarantee on that.
That's why a proper contingency plan doesn't include 'backing up to my existing hosting company'. They can burn my hosting company to the ground with my server and data in it and I'm down for about a day, maybe less. I have hardware and backups located in other locations. I am not completely reliant on a single point of failure as best I'm able.
