    It does not come highly recommended.

    Stay well away - it is a one-man operation.

    Ignore this spam, it is the owner of hostmatters (read: FRAUDSTER) pretending to be someone else.

    Be warned - do not go with hostmatters unless you want to end up the victim of a fraud and losing all your money.

    Pardon, me, I need to butt in here. Just an FYI: we have more than one employee (actually, we have 2 ). Please compare the IP addresses associated with each post - obviously, they are from different places. Sorry that this guy has invaded your thread, as well.

    That is all.

    I've got my own hosting company, so I would rather not pump up someone else but...

    Annette DOES have another employee. Davey, you can nip that comment in the bud. Her name is Stephanie. I've actually talked to her (such a sweet person). She (Stephanie) has gone out of her way to help my company and my new site resellerinfo.com.

    I have nothing but good things to say about both of them, but I've never actually hosted with them. I fell certain if you send her an e-mail and ask, that she would send you a few clients that host with her.

    Unlike the other hosting companies that seem to get good and bad statements, I've only seen good ones.

    "Hosting Matters" does not have ANY employees, it is a one-scumbag operation.

    She has repeatedly tried to spam this board in a desperate attempt to sucker a few people in but her operation has already been exposed.

    I will warn you not to go near this crappy excuse for a web hosting service unless you want to have your money stolen.

    Ignore Davey's comments, he once ran a webhosting company that suffered from bad publicity due to unethical business practices. He was exposed by Annette and others as an alarming numbers of users complained about his service, we received more complaints about his web hosting company than we did about Galaxy-Web (if you don't know what that was, well you don't want to, terrible just doesn't sum it up).

    I can not give personal recommendations about HostingMatters, however as I see it Annette has been a helpful and honest member of this forum and we have not received any negative reviews about their services. I am confident that you will receive a professional and prompt service from them should you decide to sign up, if not come back and tell us.

    I've been reselling (sort of) for them for a couple of months and I am quite pleased with their service. I really don't care how many employees they have, either.

    Cool

    I have seen Annette around these boards for quite awhile, she has always been helpful and seems pretty knowledgable. I would sign up with her if I needed a host.


    I know a few Alabanza hosting companies that are run by 1 - 3 people....there's nothing wrong with that, that's the beauty of Alabanza and why we go there, becuase it doesn't take an army to run the servers and the great control panels mean we don't get many tech qustions from our end users.

    Admin - unless you can prove your lies (which you cannot) then retract your fraudulent claims.

    My company never had any problems or complaints from clients, it was a highly successful and popular service which is why we were approached by BurstNET to sell out. Annette (and her imaginary employees) have been exposed for fraud, and are being shut down by the US authorities and also their host.

    Unless you can prove it then do not post it.

    Hosting Matters (ie. Annette, and her imaginary employees) is completely incompetant and unable to manage a business properly.

    A) Ignore Davey, he's a immature child.


    B) From what I know of Annette and HositngMatters she is running a very good company. I won't speak about Peters company as its not worth talking about.

    (Edit)
    Also, Peter, put up or shut up about Annette,
    You keep telling people to prove that true hosting was a piece of ****, why don't YOU prove that Annette is incompetitent and can't run a hosting company ect? So put up or shut up!.

    As a host that has picked up some of his victims I assure you, this is not the person to be taking advise from. If you can find one other person other then him to bad mouth Hostmatters I would be shocked. All of us that are close to this industry would expect those comments out of him and we know why. Annett has done a wonderful job of exposing his many many faults and scams, go with Annett you will not be sorry, she will take care of you. Just ignore him we all do, just spend 2 minuets on her page dedicated to him and you will see his comments do not mean much.

    Anyone, don't feel bad, David (Peter) has done, what appears to be, some very bad things to clients and he thought he could get away with it, but Annette helped organize everyone again him (truehosting) and kept getting them kicked off service providers and stuff like that due to what appears to be the fact that he ripped a lot of people off.

    He just appears to have poped his head in and now left again. Another fly by night type person lol.

    Daniel is a liar and he knows it. People like you make me sick, trying to bad mouth other companies to attempt to get soem customers.

    We did not EVER get kicked off any service provider - you are dreaming.

    Annette (or whatever she is calling herself today) is already under investigation by US law enforcement for fraud and other criminal offences. She could not organize a business if she tried so she has to go around desperately trying to scam people.

    AGAIN - DO NOT EVER USE HOSTINGMATTERS.COM!!! THEY ARE A SCAM!!

    If you could read above a 2nd grade level you would notice I was making OBSERVATIONS.
    For your information Peter liars don't last very long in this business, it appears your proff enough of that.

    (Edit)
    Also Again I say to you Peter, PROVE Annette is under investigation or retract your messages regarding her and her company! In other words PUT UP OR SHUT UP. Give me names, case numbers, contact information if she's "Under investigation" yah right, so put up or shut up.

    I am not a liar, thanks. And I have never gone out of business.

    I know for a fact about actions being taken against her by both individuals and also the authorities. No, I am not going to give you any further information.

    When she is locked up in a jail you can send her letters to keep yourself amused.

    AGAIN: I am warning everyone to steer well clear of this scammer! Also looks like UltraSpeed is in on the scam as well.

    BTW Daniel - how old are you? The owner of Ultraspeed UK is a 16yr old kid. Same with you perhaps? Thought so.

    What are you talking about? This question makes no sense. Go back to school and learn a little English, kid.

    I will do whatever I wish with my money thanks FlashTechnics. This is none of your business.

    Anyone, as I posted over on tips-tricks.com, I'm sorry that this guy hijacks every thread like this.

    In any case, if you have any questions or want a couple of clients to talk to, please drop me a note. As you can see, once this guy shows up, it's pretty difficult to get in any rational discussion.

    Cheers.

    I am not "annoyed" about anything.

    There is nothing to expose about me, I have never done anything wrong. And True Hosting never had any problems either.

    I am just helping the US authorities shut down this nasty piece of work.

    Go back to your flat, kid.

    Davey_J, your response about below10host.com was constructive and helpful, maybe it was mix up in system.

    Let things be and so will we, you came here and immediately starting slagging off Annette without any ground, as far as I see it she doing a good job, only a few reviews but all postivie nonetheless, and not a single negative review. I realised she may have annoyed you in the past, but seeking revenge in such a manner only leads me to doubt your professionalism even more and to people ignoring you and wishing you were dead even more. Please grow up.

    You can not go flaming others and saying you had no problems, we have dozens of reviews having how poor your service was, so do the other hosting directories and USENET as well.

    Peter, this will be my last post regarding you so you best listen up, if your actions continue and if you continue to slander my company and Annettes company legal proceedings will be filed, natex, the owner of the IP netblocks , which silentsurf.com has been notified, you are violating their terms of service by using silentsurf to post slanderous messages, also your access information will be released if I decide to press forward with this case and take it to court.

    I suggest you sit back and think Peter, because I'm not bluffing, If this continues I will seek legal council and press forward with this case. So for your own sake I suggest you grow up.

    It's interesting that when someone else says something bad about you that you turn your guns on them. The funny thing is that the more you yap, davey, the more people will ignore what you say.

    Lets look at this. Who has come to your defense? If you are right, why aren't there other people say "Davey is innocent, leave him alone"? I'm not saying that Annette has the best hosting company, but apparently there are those of us out here who do think she runs an honest business and have come to her defense (myself included). Where are your defenders?

    Will you now turn those same guns on me or will they instead point to Duster, or perhaps Cfoxhost? I would agree with Daniel, show us the proof you have or shut up. I'm tired of hearing you yap!

    Admin,

    I always speak well of companies that are well respected and I know a bit about. One company that I do not recommend, as you have already noticed, is Hostmatters. I am going to make sure that she cannot continue to scam people no matter how many posts I need to make.

    True Hosting never had any problems - it is the fraudulent creation of "Annette", using different aliases, who is responsible for whatever you have heard.

    If people do not believe what I say then they do not need to respond. It is obvious that she has some major problems otherwise she would not care.

    DanielP - I cannot stop laughing at your pathetic attempt at a threat! What exactly would you be suing me for? Go on - how have I slandered you? QUOTE ME. Please I ask you to sue me, I will enjoy the laugh! If you cannot take up this challenge then shut up.

    "ripped" - Another anonymous poster. Or should I call you Annette? My company was never forced off any servers, thanks. If you ever want my address just let me know, so you can come round and visit and I can phone the police to have you arrested and charged.

    Annette does not run any kind of legitimate or legal business. She is a fraudster, and that is the end of it. If she is not a criminal then why is she under investigation for fraud? ANSWER THAT!!

    If she is under investigation for fraud, *if*, then it is easily possible she is innocent it only takes one person like you Peter and alias of yourself, Davey, to send to BBB or Attorney general and they are under investigation, by this a note is logged on the computer, come back with some real proof.

    >True Hosting never had any problems

    Did she register domains and signup with real internet services and created content in the domains and get another telephone number for some of these aliases? I don't think so. I can see some of the reviews use free e-mail services, well some people use free e-mail services and if there domain e-mail is not working, *guess why?* then what e-mail are they going to use.

    Ha.. You're laughing at other people's legal threats, now that is funny, the repeated threats you made against me and other people who complain, hypocrit.

    What are you rambling about?

    Firstly - I am fairly sure that I am not Peter. I have not even had any contact with the guy for months. I will check my drivers license (funny how the owner of UltraSpeed UK is not even old enough to drive yet!) if you like to make sure.

    Secondly - She is not under investigation by complaints made by just a few people, but from a large number of people who have been defrauded by her scamming operation.

    If you cannot deliver real facts then shut up.

    I built up True Hosting over the course of just a year to over 2500 customers and was then made an offer to sell it to another company. Do you think this would have happened if we did not provide fantastic service? I don't think so.

    You have no room to speak, all you do is hide behind anonymous surfing sites, it makes me laugh. I will be speaking with legal council shortly, as for the quote you wanted, I do believe mike has already quoted it.
