mod_security and Datflame

I use a really good hosting company called Dataflame but they suffer (as most hosts do) with problems helping thier clients.

The story

I'd been working on a website (http://luckyfingers.co.uk/) for a few hours when the site died for no apparent reason. It was late so I left it for next time. I went on the site a couple of days later and all seemed fine until I installed a module on Drupal 7, at that point the site went off!

I checked in the browsers and it was gone, then tried to access the files via ftp and the server was gone.

Domain and Hosting

At this point you will know what the client wants so you can judge if the client will need a CMS, eCommerce, huge web-space, dedicated server or what ever. So the first job is to buy the domain and hosting. I use Dataflame because they have good prices, a good help service and the servers are in London so relatively quick. I've also been with them for a long time so I trust them which I cannot say for the 'bigger' companies I've worked with.
