Hi all,

Apon going through a lot of hosting companies hostinvestigator.com, i've noticed quiet a few number of hosting companies who have neally identical FAQs and services, apon looking at it more they are all run from the same place. Is it just one company setting up "different" type's of domain hosting companies?

cheers

I bet you that most of them are resellers -

Of course they'll all have the same FAQ's, etc because they're provided for them when they sign up as resellers, or they steal the FAQ's from the provider's web site.

Cool

You will often find that many of these lease dedicated servers from the same provider and it is the provider who determines what features they get hence the specs look very similar when you compare them with each other.

This is very different from being a reseller since you do indeed own your own server even though it is effectively co-loacted. This is often much better than the firm who supposedly house their own servers but are on only (say) on a 64k leased line.

In my research I found all of these are the same, servers in Texas, a division by Fidelity something on the east coast. Low prices ... Don't know if they or good or otherwise ... we passed because they only have email support.

Avoid that entire list of companies above (with the exception of the two at the bottom). From reports on other UBBs, they are run by a pyramid company with no regards for customers and are basically rip-offs. In particular, Skynet and intellihosting have copped a lot of complaints.

Thanks for that Superdave, Syonic was actually one of the company's I was going to sign up with, I got slightly suspicious though, when I would ask some more "technical questions" which appeared to have got me forwarded emails from someone else (his feed?)

The deals are all very similar, and the FAQ's are all the same on all the sites.

If everything they offer is true, then I guess they could be a good company.. *shurgg* all this hassle, just to get a good hosting company

Anyone notice that Awardhosting.com has redesigned to look different from TrueHosting? At least we now know that Peter Francis-Macrae is _not_ a designer. I _love_ that brown on dark blue look.

And check out his WHOIS!

Wow! That's not shady. Burst sure got mixed up with the right client.

Speaking of using multiple names, looks like TrueHosting's information managed to get updated. Too bad Peter^H^H^H^H^HDavey couldn't get Peter's name off while removing all other information...

The Award Hosting TOS proves that no one bothered to proof read it:

Other non-defined activities that True Hosting considers, at its sole discretion, to be inappropriate or immoral.


Way to go!

*chuckles* Didn't expect anything else from him....

You can run Davey, but you can't hide... Not after I complained to your ISPs about your behaviour!

Not only can't he hide from the people he's screwed, but he apparently can't even help giving himself away, as that Award Hosting TOS makes clear.

What a doof.

Why don't you print copies of the web sites, the whois information and etc and send it all to the Texas Attorney General's Office?

Cool

www.webaxxs.com is the same as olm.net. They are not resellers. I got confused at first when I recieved e-mail responses from olm when I had signed-up with webaxxs. They offer a very good service. THEY HOST a large portion of the resellers out there.
