ANY HOST in a similar situation could do the same thing.
Mine could not. At least not in this manner and if he did I would sue him to kingdom come.
If for some reason my host thinks I am in serious violation of the contract which makes it unbearable for them to continue the business relation, they can terminate my contract in WRITING effective immediately and then have to give me the opportunity to backup the contents from my server in a reasonable period of time - at least 7 days. Simply shutting down a server and then playing possum is neither legal nor is it a conduct of business suitable for any serious and reliable company.
