We have been very nervous about moving to another hosting company. We are afraid that we will lose our positioning with google. We already signed up with another hosting company a few months ago..but have done nothing as far as moving the site, because we are so worried about screwing up our positioning. I just wish Avid was the way they used to be.
Well, it looks like it propagated overnight ..... I thought it would take a few days. The only problem we're having is getting our forms to work on the new system. ..for now, we're using temporary ones.
Well, I wanna thank you guys for giving us the confidence to make that change.
So I guess its time to tell Avid that we're outa there.
I cannot post my site with the WARNING I would like to include here because I apparently need 5 posts in order to post a URL.
But it is a warning regarding avidhosting. I see these posts are clear back in Jun 2005, and this is 2007 and the owner is still defrauding and spamming the public and still getting away with it. Unbelievable!
I am a victim of Avidhosting, along wiith several people that have contacted me through my website. From what I understand through various contacts, it is now owned by an Ernesto Haberli - a known porn-promoting spammer.
I had to fight to get my domains back that he stole from me, and he and I exchanged "words" in email and I let him know how angered I was at the way avidhosting blantantly stole my domains! He also embezzled money from my bank account until I finally had to cancel my account and credit cards to get him to stop, BECAUSE NO ONE CAN STOP HIM!!!
I didn't realize who he was until a couple months later I received a threatening phone call from an "Ernesto".
I was just trying to move on and re-establish a new business domain. He was laughing and threatening to hack my computer and generate porn email again (which he had already done once to me and destroyed my reputation with my host and my business and I was thrown out of the hosting company for generating porn email!)
He then stole the domains of two of my clients and said, "I have complete control of them now, and if you want them back you have to pay me AND release your domain." (he means the one I purchased that warns the public). I purchased a domain with his same business name, except dot org not dot com. But I refused to be intimidated and refused to release it.
An individual informed me that the person I was dealing with by the name of Ernesto at Avidhosting IS Ernesto Haberli! THAT is why my site generated porn because HE is a porn spammer!
So presently my clients have lost their domains to this (IMO) criminal and ICAAN or anyone else cannot stop him. Google him!! And warn EVERYONE YOU KNOW to stay away from avidhosting.
If you want to know more about my problems with him, contact me and I will give you the link to my site. I want the word to get out there so that the same thing doesn't happen to anyone else and somehow, someway maybe he can be stopped.
