    I have for years hosted my vanity site on a variety of cheap under $15 hosts.  Because the site isn't important I'm even sloppy w/the backups of data.

    Once, my shared host disappeared...yep, just closed up shop left everyone hanging.  It took a few hours to have my little site back up.

    1. find new cheap host w/automatic site activation (pay by card space avail. in an hour or less)
    1. change config file on Joomla to reflect new server
    1. point dns to new server while uploading files
    1. use back up file to restore mysql data
    1. wait for dns changes to take

    New site up and running in less than 4 hours w/very little effort.  BS on their hacked story.
