I have been using webhostingworld.net for several years and was happy with their "bronze" service at $1 per month! But now they accuse me of using 30% of their CPU time (I was uploading data to myy website) and put me on their "gold" plan for $84, effective within 24h. If I don't pay they shut down my website and e-mail server. I cannot transfer my website within 24h and I refuse to pay their blackmail charge. This is a poor way to run a business. Here is their message to me:

"During a routine audit we checked that your account "[website name]" is using more than 30% cpu usage on the server , unfortunately we will not be able to continue you on brone plan.

We have upgraded your invoice to gold , if you wish to continue with us you need to pay the invoice

You can login to your client area to view and pay the invoice at

However if you do not wish to continue , you are requested to move your accounts untill the 28th of July since on 28th of July if the invoice is unpaid we will proceed with suspending and removing your accounts and no longer offer further service."
