    Something funky here

    Yesterday, I had read about Surpasshosting.Com opening their own datacenter. I had thought it was rather odd since I didn't think they were that large, but whatever. Maybe they were planning for future growth.

    Today, however I was reading a thread about Hostdime, when I came across that they also owned their own datacenter. Seeing as I'm pretty interested in seeing what each host has, I checked it out. Then I started reading it, and it hit me. I had just read this yesterday.

    See for yourself - both places claiming to own the same DC. Text is exactly the same too.

    This has been discussed and pointed out before - that Hostdime and Surpass is the same company and person. So far, in all the threads Noone -- or is it only one person -- from Surpass or Hostdime has denied this.

    I was wondering the same thing also. Maybe they are both the same company.

    Both the phone numbers in the WHOIS appear to be different, one in Daytona Beach and the other in Orlando. Does the same entity own both companies?

    <edit>
    Seems the consensus is that they are likely owned by the same company

    HostDime, along with SurpassHosting and Hasweb are all the same company. HostDime is the parent.

    Now that makes sense, I see the similarities in all three now that they are pointed out like that...
