Here's the full story, as written by the Steve, our server host.
Steve Wrote:Hey All,
Kaaos-gaming has been through alot over the last few months. We officially started in January of 2013, and after about 2 months of Beta, We had a catastrophic hardware failure. So deciding I did not have enough funds to continue the project, i was forced to close the company. The next day i had an investor i contacted a few weeks back, just randomly call me. So we started back up a few days later coming back with the second beta. After getting the ball rolling and things were starting to look good, we had 3 hackers come in and sabotage the servers due to an insecure password of a staff member. We pulled together and got servers back up within 12 hours. Well again we were struck 2 weeks later with this hard drive failure, and backup corruption. I had decided that the odds were adding up and I felt defeated. Failure was imminent, and it didn't seem as if we could recover from this. And I through in the towel. I called it quits, I took down the billing page, forums, and main site. I felt as if everything had been lost.
A few hours after that I get an email from a new company starting up, some of you may know, CraftSRV (http://craftsrv.com). The Email was from the head developer telling me that I was one of very few, that was selected to be a beta tester for their new panel. So i sat back for a minute and started thinking. Everytime Kaaos-Gaming had a problem that seemed like the end of the road, there was a sign that i need to keep going. Thats what i plan on doing I am going to learn from the mistakes i have made and keep on going. Thats what the beta is about, working out the kinks/problems.
I have had a meeting with my staff yesterday, and they are backing this 100% and I would like you to continue with us. I need your help to make this happen. I need to raise $200 to get everything back up and running. If i can raise this i can get everything back on track. I have put more than $3000 total into this project so far, and I am all tapped out on resources. So it is up the community to see if we can raise this little bit to get Kaaos-Gaming back on track. All contributors That donate $20 or more, will receive a permanent 20% discount on all future orders. I am not going to stop until Kaaos-Gaming is the #1 hosting company out there. I can't do this without your help. I am going to post a link on the main page (http://kaaos-gaming.com) for the donations. Thank you all so much for your commitments to us and I will not let you down!
If you have any questions you can email me @ email@example.com
Also, I am currently working on trying to recover the servers from the damaged HDD. I have received quite a few emails regarding their server files. I am doing the best i can to get the old data restored. I will send out a mass email as soon as i have everything up so you can FTP in and download your files.
Thank you all again for being apart of Kaaos-Gaming.com
Hopefully, this will be the end of all of the problems that we've encountered so far with hardware issues.
Enjoy the servers!
