As you might recall from here https://x10hosting.com/community/threads/cpanel-migration-to-directadmin.206877/, x10hosting free users were changed to a different website management software, called DirectAdmin. Users who did not log in starting in November and ending in February were considered inactive, according to the terms of service. With the confusion surrounding the new software and the transition, the automatic inactivity suspension system and account deletion system did not operate until March. Accounts that were in bad standing for 30 days (so they were actually inactive for 60 days, double the normal time) were removed from the server. These accounts are now showing a default "Apache is functioning normally" page instead of the user's website. Additionally, trying to log in to your control panel via the x10hosting SSO will result in "redirecting your login" and then an error.

A few things to note:
  • x10hosting premium still uses cPanel and is not affected. Please open a ticket in your client area if you have any issues.
  • x10hosting free has zero backups. Backups are the responsibility of the user. Any account deleted is deleted forever.
  • In this one-time-only exceptional circumstance, backups do exist if your account was in good standing in February.
  • This one-time-only exceptional circumstance was supposed to end March 22.
  • Admins are now allowing restorations on a case-by-case basis.
  • Email reminders are not guaranteed. Emails get blocked and sent to spam; don't rely on them.
  • It is the user's responsibility to log in every 30 days. Some months have 31 days, so make sure your reminder accounts for that.
  • Only logins to https://x10hosting.com/sso/main count.
  • Logging in to the forum, FTP, DirectAdmin, email, Wordpress, Joomla, etc. etc. do not count
  • 100% of the time before March 2020, backups did not exist. These backups will not exist forever. Back up your site.
  • Do not back up your site to your account. This is against the terms of service.

If you have this issue when viewing your site or logging in, please create a thread here.

If you have questions about any of these things, please create a thread.
