SmarterASP and MyWindowsHosting; both one and the same, are catastrophically down- for several hours apparently.

When I found out, I simply re-pointed my domains to my development area in Azure. Time down less than 5 minutes. I am not super concerned about it as I am up and running. Nothing like having a copy of my content and data locally.

Apparently this is not the case for others, as evidenced by social media pages; who do not have their DBs or content backed up. A steady stream of whining about how they are going to look bad because of the poor choices they made- mainly having no disaster and recovery plan that could be easily implemented. The thousands of dollars they are losing. The threats of class action lawsuits.

There is no official word on the cause and estimated time of system restoration. There is conjecture that they are infected with some crypto-locker, or a DDOS. I could give a crap, as while there will me a marginal increase in my cost, I am still running strong
