    Techni Host biggest fraud in the buisness!(Beware)

    Long story short I bought a dedicated server from them for 15 dollars. The server was a complete fraud and always crashed but today it crashed for a grand total of 10 hours because eddie Keyton the master mind behind this scam decided that it would be a good idea to start an argument with the bursnet owner. Yes he is a burstnet reseller he does not have his own datacenter like he proclaimed. Anyways afterwards one of his buddies (kirk vlad) promised me a free vps. Eddie wanted to charge me to downgrade to a vps and he said i should get a 60% discount instead. I told him that vlad told me i could get my vps for free. He said i misinterpreted what he said. Anyways after arguing for an hour i showed him the post another upset costumer made on webhostingtalk.com we kept arguing and he agreed to give me the vps for free IF i posted a good review for him on webhosting. Boy was i mistaken in agreeing to that. The VPS service was horrid and it crashed every 5 seconds i got 4gb and could only use 3gb without crashing what a fraud!The data transfer rates are no where close to the 1gb port promised they were around 5mbits per second tops! Anyways his other buddy cullen st martin promised me PROMISED me a refund. Eddie Keyton told me that he wasnt going to refund me and that cullen didnt know what he was talking about.Anyways it turned out eddie scammed me out of 15 dollars and i have alot of upset clients. Thank you TechniHost for your awful service and false promises.

    Techni who again? Hahaha... This is getting to be funny just because of the amount paid.

    Dedicated Server for $15? Are you sleeping? I don't what server is that but you couldn't even get rack space or even power at that price and I am not even calculating Data Transfer and Hardware yet. LOL.

    I'm sorry but when a deal sounds too good to be true, it usually is. I'm sorry that you had to go through that ordeal with them. But here's my question though, since you know they are this bad, why did you even signup with them?

    i signed up with them 2 weeks ago before they got into all these problems with burstnet it turned out to sell the servers so cheap they abused trail offers from burstnet. The server was 90$ a month but he sold me the first month for 15$

    $15 was a setup fee charged by him. I know a few other burst resellers that sell that server for $5-$20 for the first month. After the month is up, full price goes into play.

    Killerteddy, I would suggest looking at the host genie. They have that same deal but i believe its a $5 setup. They are a reseller of burst and a very good one at that. I have used them in the past.

    I do not see how a client's grammar and spelling are at all relevant in this situation, nor do I see a purpose to pointing out the way he structures his writing. Unless a client is rude or abusive, he should at all times be treated professionally.

    Well the reason i was doing that is because they tend to disconnect really quick and they never let you finish your sentences. When they are put in a hot situation. They disconnect and come back in 30 minutes and hope you leave. They now blocked me from using chat

    No problem i wouldnt want anyone else to get ripped off and the feeling of getting scammed is horrible.Specially in the fashion these guys did it, why wouldnt they refund me? answer: because they're paypal is in negative from so many chargebacks.

    One thing I would like to tell you is that never decide to go with a host by looking at the price only. If you need quality service and good support you may need to research on the host first. Always remember that you will get what you pay for. Best of luck to select a good provider next time.

    I have designed that site for him (The new orange layout) and am still awaiting partial payment. He has disappeared since the time I gave him the designs.

    WHAT??? They changed their looks already? So fast? How interesting.

    Good luck in getting paid. They have so much trouble here, they can't even sit down properly. Their monetary problems are a lot more than that. In any case, if in future anyone would like to design a website for me by taking partial payments, I'd be glad to have you do my site without a second thought.

    Killerteddy, contact Alex at the host genie via support ticket or on the forums here. They have a coupon code in whmcs for a $5 setup then 59.99 a month after. If you look in the dedicated server offer section you will see his thread as well. That is a great company and I would recommend them anytime from my past experience.

    Consider yourself lucky for only having to pay $15 to learn this lesson. Many people have paid a lot more than that before they realized they made a big mistake. Your odds of having a better experience drastically increase as you increase your budget. Their are lousy hosts that charge a lot too but for $15 you are pretty much guaranteed a crappy system with crappy support.

    Hehe..yeah. Was a bit of a mistake to trust him, I guess. I guess he might pay once his problems are sorted out. It's the only reason why you haven't seen a similar thread created by me

    It is not only you. I also feel those screen shots are not readable. When we magnify the screen it is getting blurred.

    it is setup , you pay $15 they take it for free , if you need the server to test a software or test anything is much better to get a dedi for $15 instead of $65 or more, is easy to get started as fast , if your support is good then customer will stay , a thing or two how this works i belive.

    True, and the same thing can be said for a lot of things in life.

    One of the reasons BurstNET resellers have a bad reputation are 'companies' like TechniHost, who are run either by scam operations or individuals who have no idea how to run a business or manage their finances.

    Considering a company known for their support like SingleHop has even offered $1 first-month servers, your statement is inaccurate.

    I can't believe someone paid $15 for a dedicated server. I wouldn't go any higher than $7.50, maybe $10.00 if it were fully managed with phone support and a decent SLA. Just my two cents, Canadian, which is probably worth more than your two cents right now.

    Price of dedicated servers i think strays away from this post. More or less contact the owner of the site, if he then does not pay harass him a bit more.

    OK, just to get back on track with this ticket.

    Please note that in their blog, they were talking about "Wired World Hosting" as their NEW FOUND provider and etc. However after some checking and such, it was found these ppl either do not own any DC at all.

    Further to that, if you try checking both Wired World Hosting and Techni Host, you will find something really strange and really interesting.

    Wired World Hosting IP : 68.190.239.67
    Techni Host IP : 68.190.239.66

    I was kinda surprised when I saw that so I dug a bit further...

    Kinda interesting ain't it? Charter? Hmmm...Both of them using the same server? IP is almost SIDE BY SIDE?

    What are the chances of these happening?

    Why o why? that's the question which remains unanswered each and every time. Why not do some proper research to begin with.

    Within 1 minute I was able to find two threads on a different forum complaining about their service: Extremely slow VPS, Dedicated server went down.

  34. #34

    Thumbs down

    I would like to share the following information, not written by me but it's important enough to add it here:

    ------------------------------
    Eddie seems to have a bit of a history, this is not the first time a hosting company of his has been called a scam, namely he used to run a hosting company (Not a real company i might add) called 'Hostparlor.com' which is now defunct, this too had scam warning posted (e.g. http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=640017 And http://www.namepros.com/warnings-and...or-beware.html

    According the namepros post he has run 3 other hosts not including host parlor, all of which are now defunct...

    List of his hosts
    Host Parlor (defunct)
    Hosterschill (defunct)
    InterCore (Seems defunct, no proof suggesting its not defunct)
    The Cayman Host (Seems defunct, no proof suggesting its not defunct)
    Technihost (Still Running)

    If i had to make an educated Guess i would say this host is going the same as the other 4, e.g. will be a defunct as its all hitting the fan soon enough.

    Also This Burstnet Post (http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showpo...50&postcount=7) Should explain the downtime assuming you where on his burstnet servers, e.g. Burstnet suspended there servers becuase he owes them money. If you are not on his burst net server althought this does not explain the situation, if he does not pay invoices to once provider whats the chances he pays invoices to the others.

    Burstnet Explanation:
    Okay. I just had an interesting conversation with Eddie (Carl) Keyton. I offered him the chance to clean this up however he wished, but he decided he'd rather let me post everything here.

    So, this begins back in Feb. 2009 with (Carl) Eddie's first account with us. He ordered a FREE MONTH Server, and then neglected to either cancel or pay for the service, so he has been in debt to us since then.

    Then Carl opened a new account with us A MONTH LATER. He ordered ANOTHER free month server, and -- surprise -- let it lapse without canceling or paying.

    Now, we go forward ANOTHER MONTH and Carl's partner Kirk Ladd joins in and tries to order ANOTHER FREE SERVER! We catch this one and cancel it, but he tries again the next day. We cancel that.

    Move forward to Jan. 2011 where Kirk signs up again and tried to order a server again. We deny him

    Move forward to last month, where Carl signed up again, and decided to go for broke and ordered over 30 free month servers. Of those, 15 have already been canceled (He doesn't seem to know how to retain a client).

    After my conversation with him in a technihost live chat, and upon this full review of his history with us, we decided to invoke our right to suspend all services until we can clear up this overdue invoice, multiple accounts and free month server abuse.

    I do not believe he is taking this part well at all.

    Suffice to say, BurstNET is not the cause of the problem, as (Carl) Eddie states, but how he chooses to do business.
