    Still doesn't make sense. The name should be registered to the company, not to an individual if he doesn't own it. I've registered domains for clients and put the client as the owner,admin, billing and myself as tech.

    I personally see a few problems with that down the road.

    Based on a Google cache of LinkedIn, Jules did claim to own thiswebhost.

    Hmm, I was not curious about the owner(s) of the company, but Doug not seeing the question as relevant (after having written: "If anyone has any more questions I would be more than happy to answer them") has made me curious.

    And this interview has made more curious, as Jules is described as one of the "brains". Ok... a "brain" is not an owner, but in my opinion a "brain" would share the same responsibilities.

    I'm saying this not because I'm willing to demonize someone or the company, but stating that Jules is not the owner (even if he's been one of the brains behind the company) seems to be a not so wise strategy to separate the company from the issue. In my opinion, taking full responsibility would be much better.

    Glad I keep my business straight. Dealt with a scam artist client once. Did some googling to find out he was in the middle of a scam lawsuit with a church impersonation an NBA player, computer store scam, hotel scam, wanted in florida, and it goes on.

    I would suggest its time for some stories to get straighten out...people's on here will find the truth.

    With respect to those who have asked questions, right now this feels very much like a manhunt against us. Yes, we were wrong, and we're working to correct that, but I honestly don't feel it is fair for you to call in every single aspect of our business on decisions made some 3 years ago.

    Jules is and was co-founder of ThisWebHost (hence being referred to as "the brain"). Why he put "Owner" on LinkedIn? That's something I of course can't answer. I would assume it is so that he could set up the LinkedIn page for the company. Perhaps it requires the owner? I'm not sure of their policy.

    Is it a problem that Jules registered the domains and his information in the WHOIS? I do not see it as a concern at all. Jules is not going anywhere, and there is no feeling of danger that he's about to run off and steal the domains. He is trusted and would not have been put in such a position if deemed the company would be at risk. I realize the irony of that statement given todays events, but from the perspective of losing the domains, it's simply not going to happen.

    Are we trying to distance ourselves from Jules? No, not at all. If we were we would not have made a blog post stating that he is still working for this* albeit in a less than public fashion. We take full responsibility for what has happened, but right now we can only work on trying to make things right and ensure that these situations do not happen again in the future.

    So, whom are you again? I thought it was Jules & David. Is it now Jules & Doug, or are you a figment of someone's imagination? http://wck2.companieshouse.gov.uk/07...43/compdetails doesn't show much.

    We've got Jules listed as owner on Linkedin, several web hosting review sites where he's the primary contact & listed as 'owner', and he's represented thiswebhost singlehandedly now for ~3+ years on the internet. Quite odd to say the least.

    I'm not trying to hunt you down. How ever you guys run your business is not really my concern.

    Before starting my current company I was co-owner of another company for 10 years. Once things started getting questionable as your situation currently is, things started to hit the fans. This is why I am the captain of my own ship. If I sink it I can't blame anyone.

    Not knowing why someone else publicly stated they own the company doesn't make sense. I would have it corrected immediately. Things might be cool now, but where do you guys plan to be in 2021?

    Just advise from experience.

    Pardon me while I continue suspecting you're pulling a Kaumil.

    Jules had listed on a single website that he was the owner. He was not publically masquerading as the owner, and on no other websites did he list himself as such, nor did he ever appear to make any claims to anyone that he was. People seem to be currently looking for any little piece of information to discredit it. Whilst that is your perogative, I can assure you that you are looking for something that is not there.

    So, he's not the owner like Linkedin & several other sites state, including 3rd party review sites like http://www.webhostingreviews.com/thi...st-reviews.htm -- correct?

    I have no idea what the reference is, nor do I care to.

    You've seemingly already made up your mind.

    Webhostingreviews requires that you register as an "Owner" of the company in order to respond to previous feedback. There is nothing suspicious about that at all.

    Next pitch-fork please?

    I looks like jules realized he has done wrong and is now trying to do damage control, acting like he doesn't own the company.

    Jules doesn't own the company. If you would like proof, feel free to contact Companies House and pay for information on each of the shareholders.

    Somehow I feel that even if you did so, you would still find some way to claim otherwise.
