Something about $50 a month, perhaps it was even $60 per month.

I moved the site onto their server and it was okay for about ten days. Not great, some lags, but the site was up and responding. Around the tenth day it was crawling. I contacted support and was eventually told that they were blocking the site, because it was too popular. That went back and forth for a few days. One of the main reasons I argued was that, at the very least, there was new data on the server that I had not backed up (due to the slowness).
