Mobile Zone’s Website Down, Account Suspended

Seems like Mobile Warranty providers are going down in the country, earlier we saw MOBO International’s website in wrong hands and here comes the second of the list.

Mobile Zone’s website has gone offline with an Account Suspension message.

Now this is something really disappointing as we have repeatedly asserted on the importance of official websites and how important role they play with the fluctuating trends of the market. But instead of aggregating the trend we are going negligible here.

What Possible Reasons can be, For this Suspension?

Though we cannot state exactly what happened at the back end but still possible reasons can be discussed.

First of all if we look into the whois details of Mobile Zone’s website, it states that website is hosted on a dedicated server.

But it is not necessarily true that website is hosted on a dedicated server as whois details show this information when website is assigned with a dedicated IP address and you can even have a dedicated IP on shared hosting as well.

And I must say, errors like ‘Account Suspended’ never show on dedicated server as no one can suspend you like this but to put you offline, and that is an extreme.

So it apparently rules out that MobileZone.com.pk is hosted on a dedicated server.

Next comes the privacy thing, your hosting provider can suspend your account for any copyright claim, piracy report or illegal content. So we are all well aware that Mobile Zone had a custom designed website with slightest chance of piracy or copyright issue. Even if they had, hosting provider always warns you about that to remove the disputed content or your account will be suspended.

Mobile Zone’s tech department might have ignored that but still there are minimal chances of such incident.

Over-usage of the resources is one big factor here as shared hosts usually manage hundreds of clients on same server so they won’t allow anyone to use extra resources, resulting in glitches for other users. Hosting company will surely warn you about such incidents and even if it was the issue, Mobile Zone should have moved it’s website to some VPS with high resources, at least.

Last but not least, the only reason we are left with is, Non-payment  and literally hosting companies won’t tolerate that. So chances are, that account got suspended due to non payment of the dues.

We haven’t got any official word from Mobile Zone on the issue yet, post will be updated as soon as, and if, we are able to dig further into the issue.

Thanks to Agha Mansoor Azeemi for pointing this out.

Update:

Mobile Zone has finally taken action about the issue and the website shows “under construction” message now.

  • I guess MZ is gone bankrupt, all major brands have shifted to either Advance telecom, United or Teletec! Mobilezone is dealing with china mobile phones only now.

  • muhammad hussain

    When there website was not down. then also it was not updated since long time. The telephone numbers given their regarding companies offices were also not listed and there was no detail about magagate cell phones there.

    Their NS record show they are hosting with http://www.thobsonlive.com/ who are actually on reselling hostdime which may have suspended their account for some reason.

      Tum apko goya unka inka intezar hai.

  • You are right saying their website is not hosted on dedicated server at all. It’s on a shared account with MAGSNET and only have a Dedicated IP. Domaintools will say any site is hosted on dedicated server if its on dedicated IP.

    I am not sure what’s the connection between Thobson & MagsNet.

    Btw, have you guys seen that most official websites (and fairly large organizations) are hosted on shared hosting.

    • – Btw, have you guys seen that most official websites (and fairly large organizations) are hosted on shared hosting.

      Yes i agree, and as per my experience and observation, this is just the lack of awareness. As person A hires a company or/person B for his official website for brand or company. Things get settled and the deal is, person A will receive a working website, online.
      So here designing company tries to generate maximum revenue with spending as less they can. So they opt for shared hosting with one domain free for life.
      And ultimately the result is above, and there are many incidents like this. QMobile website had same issue.

  • sometimes webmasters do this for moving data or trying to evaluate some issues….

    • Really ???
      They display “account suspended” page while doing some testing??
      Don’t think so.

      Its most likely suspended on Non Payment.

  • ASLAM

    LOLZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

  • its may be fault of their IT manager or webmaster. this happens if mail-ware files hosted on the server.

    • More likely their finance manager (if they had one) for not paying the hosting bills.

  • I could predict that business outcomes of Mobile Zone from its official website is quite low thats why they haven’t taken any action of down site issues unless Mobile Zone powerful mobile warranty vendor should consider this flaw as blunder in declining its value among online customers

  • Its may Because of their IT Department & record Keeping department.. But i agree they don’t have their own Dedicated Server…
