Getting away from Globat. Not trustable!

OK, for some reasons, I write this article in English. I bet you Chinese can understand it.

The problem was simple. Globat's servers got down on Feb. 21, because of switch problem. Well, that was not the critical impact.

On Feb 23 afternoon, I found my database got problem, probably database crashed. I talked to their technical support. They told me they were working on it, and needed sometime. I thought it was acceptable. But then, things got much worse.

On Feb 27, I tried use phpMyAdmin to repair tables, and got all tables recovered except one of them. Finally, I got a happy ending by myself. Definitely, they were still "fixing the problem".

As of that time, all my websites have been down for almost a week. Those websites include,, and

I tried to search "Globat problems" in Google. It seems Globat has problem to deal with customers frequently. I have no more passion on a troublesome web server. Therefore, I temporarily moved to Lunarpages, under


Further, I will shut down all my websites on Globat and move them all to a new server, although they are still fixing the problem.
