Your insistent whinny is directed at your hosting company, yet you
continue to post on a forum that pertains primarily to an OS. Your
supposed problem would be better directed at a forum dedicated to
resolving you problems, imaginary or not.

There are literally hundreds of sites that pertain to hosting
available. You might want to try this one:

The issue(s), at least according to you, have already bite you in the
ass. For the record, I have read all of the thread, including your 18
and counting posts to that thread, all saying or relating to the same
supposed issue, your inability to get a hosting company to kiss your
ass. Poor Aryeh. "Aryeh" good, everyone else bad.

You are really dense, Your options are quite clearly laid out. 

1) Negotiate with the company.
   a) Since that has failed, move onto #2
2) Bring legal action
   a) So far you have failed to do that which indicates that either you
   have no legal basis for the action or you fear a counter suit that
   might implement you as culpable in some manner.
3) Failing to implement #2, move to a new hosting company that is
   either willing to implement your requirements of already embellishes

As any real mechanic knows, if you don't have the tools you need on
hand, whether from poor planning or whatever, you utilise the tools you
do have on hand. A nail "may" break a screwdrivers handle, but if that
nail saves a ship from shrinking, do you really think it is not worth
it? Well, you might. I can just envision you sitting on the deck,
crying like a wimp because you don't have a hammer to drive in the nail
to seal the latch while the water flows in sinking your ship,
all-the-while a screwdriver lays unused in your tool belt.
