Simple question...is this hosting service dead?

There seems to be very serious lack of support or response from service.

I was considering moving my guild's website here as it offers some great features.  But given the lack of support or response, I am concern the service may just disappear without any notice.

For all intents and purposes, I believe so. We've had our site hosted by Guildportal for over 5 years, and the service has just plummeted to nonexistent ever since the big crash last year. We're moving our site over to Guildlaunch. I see no sense in paying for a service that is no longer being developed or supported.

Man that really sucks.  None of the other hosting sites have the same level of features.  We started with GuildLaunch, then moved to Enjin.  I really never cared for either.  Both also seem to be under frequent DDoS attacks which takes down our mumble and website.

It's such a shame that the Guildportal support team has disappeared. What happened?!

I have tried many other guild hosting sites but I just love Guildportal - I think this site has so much potential. If the site developer came back from wherever he ran off to then this website could be saved. I can't find a guild hosting site that satisfies me as much as this one.

I have to agree.  This is the best Guild hosting site out there.  It offers so much more than the other hosting site.

Well hopefully the active members of the community can stick together and help each other on this forum. We can try to keep Guildportal alive, despite the non-existent staff!

Funny thing though the support staff seems to be missing they don't miss billing us for our site each and every month.

Thing that surprises me is, Why are these servers still running? I agree with previous posters that the features provided here are great. However, I can't see investing time and money in a host that might disappear tomorrow. You would think that if they continue to take money, the least they could do would be to post occasionally the status of the service.

I've been involved in web sites and hosting for years and can honestly say I've never seen anything like this situation. Usually, a hosting service just shuts down; it doesn't just continue to limp along on life-support like this one.

Not sure how you do that without access to the server.
