How I long For Venturesonline

Ever since ventures merged with data393 I feel the level of service has dropped, slow responce to the help desk and my sites are painfully slow at times, so for me its time to move on, I am looking for a quaility host with VPS, I was told to use Ventures last time I asked on here a couple of years ago!!

PLEASE give me good advice again

Many Thanks John

That's the n-th time I read something like this. It always saddens me to hear that a good company is not good anymore.

Good luck in your search John28uk!

It means the merger was not successful

It doesn't mean the merger wasn't successful, just means the newer company got rid of the older employees whom were holding the load or keeping things in tip-top shape.

The merge happened - so it was a "success".
Although the clients may not feel that way.

you know sometimes it takes a little bit of time to get all the kinks worked out. More customers and might be understaffed. However I dont know there situation just ones like it.

It seems the larger the company gets the worse the customer service gets. And, that applies to all industries, not just ours.

Little wonder I get nervous when one of our existing hosts gets taken over (or 'merges'). For me, I pick a host for a reason... seeing them swallowed by some other company must always expose that reason to some sort of risk.

You may want to check out in this case. Data393 just sold their CPanel shared clients to them. says the following:

I believe if they start dropping they usually will sell the company. The new owners usually bring it back up if that is what is going to happen. Then again nothing could happen so I guess brace yourself for the worst and hope for the best.
