    Hi,

    Please don't talk slander, K-Disk is in no way "closed down" we have taken over the brand from Keith and it is steadily growing. We also have lots of exciting plans for it, it is not closing down or going anywhere.

    Best,
    Kevin

    K-Disk was hacked because of the WHMCS exploit which lead to their servers being well... "rooted"

    Then afew weeks later Keith sold the brand to another business.

    Dan from EZPZ hosting has been having hardware issues leading from deffective hardware from SoftLayer I believe.

    The industry as a whole is much much bigger than this place, Also WHT seems to attract the type of "I want everything for nothing"

    Only a handful of the brands which I am associated with advertise here on WHT other brands advertise locally and on other forums which are part of the Niche market which they deliver to.

    The particular brand which sells Master Reseller hosting isnt on WHT nor uses WHT to advertise as we dont want to be part of the slit throat down driving offers section...

    I knew alot before hand but have secured my knowledge further from market research and studying the trends of reseller hosting something which came at great expense to me.

    Am tied to NDA so releasing in-depth information is not allowed by me, However once the NDA's are past I,ll be happy to release such information and you never know the brand might just appear here on WHT

    Thats because the brand doesnt advertise on here same with alot of other businesses in the field...

    So the company you own/work for don't advertise on any website/forums. That is very strange considering your business is IT/Hosting related. You make it sound like it does well from offline marketing alone.

    Anyway, back on topic... I gave one suggestion... EZPZ. And as FTN-Kevin replied mentioning they took over K-disk.net ... there's another one. I haven't used any of them so am not recommending them. There's a few the OP can consider/try though.

    A majority of the people who were posting that thread complaining weren't even K-disk clients to my knowledge, we have tried contacting some of them to try to sort out their issues after the acquisition with no response.

    Myself and other members of my staff posted in that thread several times and was ignored by the people trolling it that were bashing keith for not replying even though he wasn't in control of the company at the time. eventually a moderator stepped in and closed the thread and linked our press release about the acquisition.

    Yes it advertises on the internet and certain forums but it only advertises at places which are relevant to the market which it caters to and since it doesnt provide to the everthing for nothing market we dont use webhostingtalk as an advertisement strategy.

    Not every IT/Hosting related business uses WHT...

    I did read what you put, and yes, you gave answers. Still something strange about it.

    I've been successfully providing master reseller plans for almost three years now. Whoever says they all fail in 1 year is dead wrong.
    It's all about the provider, not the fact that it's a master reseller, or plain ol' reseller program.
    Quality hardware, proper management, and proper software are the key factors in successfully providing master reseller programs.
    Obviously, trying to run a master reseller from a typical VPS is a bad idea for a variety of reasons; which it seems, many attempt to do.
