    OurWeb net experience

    Hi there,
    earlier today I have requested a quote for hosting for my client's sites on WHT as a part of searching for his new hosting. One of the replies I got is from Bill Banks, owner of OurWeb.

    This is his email I've got:
    http://i40.tinypic.com/x2m4n6.jpg

    I was pretty skeptic about it since he claims he is in business for 19 years, one of the things he offers on his site is SEO, yet I had hard time finding any info or reviews about his services. I did found some, one is payed, and the rest talk about attitude of Mr. Banks.

    So here is my response:
    http://i43.tinypic.com/2hn438n.jpg

    There was also short email from MR banks after that telling me I am wrong, on which I replied that I don't thinks, thanked him for his time and wished him good luck.

    The next ting he asked me how long am I in business and I really didn't want to continue any discussion since I wasn't interested in this hosting and saw now point in further discussion.

    Then after few hours, this is email I've got. Please not there is some inappropriate language by Mr. Banks.

    I am not sure what was the point of this e-mail, to impress me or what? I still stand by my remarks, and there is no way I would ever recommend person and service like this.

    I don't know if this is the right area to post this, but couldn't find any better. Just wanted to let community or any other future searches, know about this hosting and attitude his owner has. You can also do some research to see my point about reviews he has online.

    You definitely laid it on him pretty hard, but.. your sentiment was truthful opinion nonetheless (especially in regards to the design of the website). His response to your harsh criticism was childish at best.

    Sounds like a immature kid who probably doesn't own any servers and has a bad attitude. At least you found that out OP before you hosted with them.

    Edit: Ok the domain was registered in 1997. So ok it's not a kid but a immature adult.

    Registrant Name: WILLIAM BANKS Erm is that his dad's name or a brother?

    I actually did find that domain is pretty old, not as old he claims to be, yet pretty old. If he was doing business for that long, he probably started under another name.
    Anyway, for domain that old, lack of any reviews and info about this services was even more strange.

    Domain could have been purchased by the current owner. I do not see why he needed to use profanity in response to your criticism. What did he expect to gain out of a reply like that? What a joke.

    He has been the owner for years. There are numerous mentions of him throughout the forum.

    I love the bit in his reply stating, "I OWE and manage ...".

    Probably the most truth I've heard from him.
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.
