Man, I have to wonder....do buyouts catch my scent and follow me everywhere I go?
My personal experience with buyouts has been...well, disastrous: IGXHost sold their accounts to HostQuack and then they were bought by those twits at 859compute...and after that terrible experience I have been conditioned not to trust them. Buyouts = decline in service and running existing client bases into the ground, right?
So imagine my surprise when I got an email that HostDime had bought VPSLatch. Now, I want to be clear - I'm not griping or complaining in the least (yet?) - but I thought I'd post this information and ask for anyone's opinions on this.
To be fair, I know nothing about HostDime and haven't had any experience with them. So far, my experience with VPSLatch has been just fine - near-loadless server, great performance and prompt service. It's also a good sign that there was a comprehensive email sent out explaining what happened AND explaining the changes that will happen in the future (server migrations, reorganization of infrastructure, etc). HOWEVER...something always changes, and I'll admit anxiety as to what lies in the future, even though support was kind enough to assure me that the credit I have with VPSLatch will carry over into the new billing system.
So I guess I'm wondering about any very current experiences with HostDime...in addition to the reviews and opinions I'm going to search for on these forums. I'm aloof, cautious and hoping that they don't end up crowding accounts on to boxes the way so many hack companies have done in the past. Thoughts, anyone?
Also, if you have any specific questions about the acquisition or about HostDime you wanted to ask an employee of the company, please feel free to PM me directly and I'd be glad to assist.
Have a great day
