Login page says "This site is restricted" I have tried to resolve the issue with 6 different support agents, spent more than 2 hours each time, and none of them has been able to help me out. Those guys are completely useless.... More Do yourself a favor and keep your stuff away from this host! Less
Avoid them is possible
