    Awful Turth about Web Hosting

    Leum Jamison who is a person that have tried to register a domain name [but mistyped the domain name] a month ago and claimed that we have registered the domain name wrongly for him[ lol we never register domains manually in the name of customers and its impossible something at domain register systems may add extra characters nor change them..] anyways because of his invalid type of payment his typo domain registration was failed. This visitor spent more than 3 hours of administration and support hours of Newista because of this, his fault..

    but this tale is not limited with that

    The visitor have applied for another domain registration from http://www.newista.com/ and bingo he registered his domain properly. and as soon as he registered his domain, he had hit to the live sales, support e-mails, support tickets, all the way he founds to contact to claim his domain is not working[he is toughting there is a magician at domain register systems that is able to read the registerar mind what DNS he want to set for his domain and set DNSs for his domain according to the host that he is using for his domain]. After we have told that he had to set DNSs for his domain and at least have to wait 24hrs for the DNS propagation then his domain is working* [describe it as working* because visitor was unable to understand anything and claimed his domain was not registered and we scammed or our systems are broken non-stop unless the DNS propagation have been completed...] altough we have tried to approve him that his domain was registered from 3rd party service like dnsreport.com dnsstuff.com, we have give the knowledge base more than anyone may want about how domain register systems and procedures working..
    I dont know how many times we have told that customer how domain registeration procedures and nature are, since 2 days.

    However below is the last conversation after his domain DNSs fully propagated according to his hosting service [1and1]
    Btw. he is still claiming we have scammed him or our domain register systems are not working..

    **** Newista" = "f*ck Newista" (21:53) 216.59.231.11 [visitor nick that he choose, it was exactly as it spelled too]

    [21:53] **** Newista Are you running some kind of scam here
    [21:54] **** Newista No wya of emailing whoever the hell runs this company to say what ****ers are working here
    [21:54] **** Newista I need help with my domain
    [21:54] Newista: look, lets talk friendly
    [21:54] **** Newista but you can't give me that
    [21:54] **** Newista can you
    [21:54] **** Newista Sounds good
    [21:55] Newista: you are like kidding with us
    [21:55] Newista: first be sure that are you kidding with us or not?
    [21:55] **** Newista I'm kidding with you
    [21:55] **** Newista is that what you think this all is
    [21:55] Newista: if you are not kidding then you have serious problems about what you are doing on the internet
    [21:56] **** Newista There is something flawed with your domain system that you don't know how to fix
    [21:56] Newista: nextboxhosting.com this isthe domain that you have registered allright?
    [21:56] **** Newista And your customer support is so crude I'm suprised you ever get any customers
    [21:56] **** Newista yes www.nextboxhosting.com
    [21:56] **** Newista am I missing something here
    [21:56] **** Newista some magical step that makes my domain work
    [21:57] **** Newista or at least go to the intended website
    [21:57] Newista: and ns29.1and1.com and ns30.1and1.com
    [21:57] Newista: the DNSs that you have set for yourdomain allrgiht?
    [21:57] **** Newista yes
    [21:57] **** Newista those are the correct DNS
    [21:57] Newista: and now what are you claiming ?
    [21:58] **** Newista and 1and1 says it was updated to the register
    [21:58] Newista: Are you claiming your domain is not registered?
    [21:58] **** Newista I am claiming maybe you should go to the site
    [21:58] **** Newista the domain is registered
    [21:58] Newista: or your domain DNS have been not propagated ?
    [21:58] **** Newista they have been propagated
    [21:58] **** Newista but something is wrong
    [21:58] Newista: so what is not working?
    [21:58] **** Newista and maybe you should know
    [21:58] **** Newista go to the site
    [21:58] **** Newista www.nextboxhosting.com
    [21:58] **** Newista tell me what you see
    [21:59] Newista: are you thinking that your domain is hosted at Newista?
    [21:59] **** Newista It's not
    [21:59] **** Newista I have my own host
    [21:59] **** Newista Newista registered it
    [21:59] **** Newista and Newista should know the problem
    [21:59] Newista: Home , features, cpanel guide..
    [22:00] Newista: So if you got your domain registered from Newista and if your domain registered from Newista and if you got your domain DNS have been propagated too so why are you hitting Newista?

    .. visitor again left the session without giving any reply ..
    Now he is addicted and found a fun by this way and he will hit to our services again and again and again...


    Why i rather to tell that here, to be honest not to kid with that human nor make fun here, i just show you the reality of running web hosting business. You support the visitors that register domain name from you only [thats not have any profit ] and you try to arrange your support hours for a human like those ones and that result like that, possible he is now yelling about Newista everywhere..
    most of all , the dramatic truth about web hosting is that, now Newista is going to be blamed by that visitor everywhere whom is going to run a web hosting service at his domain, i amean this is a person whom is going to run a web hosting offerring web-site..

    Raise your domain registration charge for domain only purchases. You cannot make a living off of selling $7.99 domains, don't even try. It's not even worth the few extra clients. At most you are making $1.50/domain gross less credit card fees, less hosting, less software, less advertising. This leaves you with anywhere from -$5 to +$0.50/domain.

    You would need to sell 80,000 domains a year to pay one persons salary assuming you were even making money off the domain registration. Even some of the larger registrars now require you to buy another product/service to get the lower domain registrations. Unless you are pulling in clients for another service don’t waste your time with cheap registrations.

    A "majority" of clients shopping for bottom dollar prices will be a pain and some that pay more for it will be just as much of a pain but at least you can afford to pay someone to do the support.

    >domains, don't even try.

    But you can attract hosting customers that way. I would only offer it to people who also buy hosting.

    this is exactly what i am talking about, the heck is that!
    I may describe myself as an experienced hosting specialist now i start from the first step selling hosting to my web-design customers since 2000, i saw too many customers, visitors like those ones[but this visitor were a very special one whom is thinking to run a web hosting service with that nature] , PayPal frauds, DDos attacks, server crash .
    And i always see that whenever i complain or file a claim about a bad action regarding a visitor or customer [i wont do it unless it wont harm very badly] i lost! I lost because those kind of people dont hesitate to take the revenge of it without thinking wht harms that they have caused.
    You know, you make 100 hosting customers happy by responsing their incredible needs with your insufficient resources[a server cant fly] and maybe 1/100 of them complimant regarding you or your service but if you make mad 1 customer/visitor then sure he/she will take the revenge at all the platforms that he can able to do.

    I love this business and what i am doing but there is an unjustice about those matters, there are too many platforms that keep the rights of hosting customers but there is no platform that keep the right of hosting providers , you are really alone when you abused as a hosting provider. Maybe hosting providers must build a platform , i mean something like trusted hosting providers pools where they can mark those kind of hosting customers, frauders, abusers... Otherwise you cant get any justice and cant block those kind of actions, i never seen a legal complains works too, you cant complain about a customer at the forums,who cares? but when he/she complains about you, it become a huge pain about your reliability FOREVER.

    Im not taking sides here, that guy is obviously a bad customer that I'd drop like a bad stock.
    But even though he seemed extreamly dumb, personally I dont think you explained everything in a simple enough way.

    Part of our jobs of knowing our hosting stuff, is to provide a service and help those who dont otherwise they will be doing it themselfs.

    "Newista: if you are not kidding then you have serious problems about what you are doing on the internet"

    I dont think that should have been said even though it is true. If it were me.

    I first would have checked the whois of where his domain was pointing. I would have then did a DNS lookup to see the IP that it is currently pointing at. If it was correct Id tell him to wait, if it was not I would have told him step-by-step that he needs to login to where he got the domain from, set the primary nameserver as <mynameserver1> and the second one <mynameserver2>. Click apply and tell him that it may take up to 24 hours for the changes to take effect. Even though he is setting up a reseller and definantly should already know this, he may not know the ins and outs of this and understand the meaning of the word 'propagate'.

    If he was still a problem I would tell him that because he brought the domain outside of my system, I will not provide futher support for this.

    If he was STILL a problem, I would refund his money, close his accounts and wish him luck with his next host.

    The session history is the last session's history, i think you have not read the thread well, we have told him from the begining like how the earth and life started by the big bang for 2 days... No luck he even not listening anything and just claiming not *working, i scammed, and swears..
    2- This is a domain register issue, not a hosting purchase like you close the account and refund.

    Wooops - you got it wrong buddy! The domain is registered with Newista and the hosting is with 1&1, so its not that easy like disabling / deleting their hosting amount and refunding for it.

    dolay with any business you got the customers that can be just a pain in the arse. Or they "forget" to pay the $900 dollar bill or they ask for someone that you do not have in stock and tell them that then they get all pissy about it.

    Even though they are a pain it is always great feeling when you get a customer who is very happy, and keeps thanking you over and over again about 10 times . It sure makes the day go so much better!

    I actually went to www.nextboxhosting.com and it was quite funny, see he's now offering domain registrations himself:

    Domain Register

    Send $7.99 to the paypal account on the front page to register a domain. Domain will be active within 10-15 miniutes. Depending on server problems ect. Domains may take longer to register. Please do a domain whois to see if the domain you desire is available. It saves us all the trouble. Available soon will be an automated system to make the whole process easier.
    Oh and BTW the PayPal account is "[email protected]". Now who in his right mind would send money up front (or at all) to such an address?

    Hey this website is really entertaining, the guy even put up a "why us?" page... just a couple of quotes:

    For only $42 with our basic plan, we beat most hosting solutions. For all the features we offer we are a superb solution for you. Even our 2GB plans or load balanced servers are offered cheap to you.
    We offer excellent support manuals to guide you through the whole process. From basic HTML guides, to the backbone of our systems.
    And here comes the best:

    We have emails that are monitored several times a day. (...) We even offer live support that during the summer months is available almost all the time during peak hours.

    Argh, he stolen my own design on the live support graphs rotfl also the plans page is badly imitated too.
    And the worst probably he is continuing to steal our scripts and know-how pages. At least god thanks he is not imitating as exactly what we have otherwise this will cause some dublicated content and rank damage on search engines. But if he go more further on imitating i think it is going to be need to pull that boys nose.

    Yes it does. But that is the same reality with most B2C businesses. When you sell ot the average joe consumer, hat's what you gotta deal with from time to time. And dependingon what you sell, some businesses have more of this type of problem suctomer more than others. Web hsoting, I presume, is most likley up there due to it's technical nature yet mass appeal.

    Providing to small (yet big enough) niche, you can avoid these customers better - depending on the niche, of course. ANother upside is you may be able to get the higher price you need to charge in order to provide the impeccable service they need. After all, that's what it really somes down to, especially with hosting businesses. Your support and service will make or break you in most cases.

    Ditto. The discount game is hardly the game to play for resellers anyway (assuming you are aa reseller - sorry if you're not ).

    I got as far as this post before I fell out of the chair...good grief! What is this? Idiot week? I had a guy wanting a full shopping cart integrated into his present site. He only wanted to pay $50 dollars but that's not the worst, he didn't want anyone accessing his server. He had this description of taking his files, doing it on my servers and then sending him all the files. I'm still wondering if he put it where I told him to.

    I think your explanation could have been a little more helpful and may have prevented alot of his confusion. That's not to say that the kid isn't clueless...but I even had trouble following your "help" in a couple of spots.

    Basically, you should have said "You need to update your domain name to point to your new host's DNS. To do this...(insert instructions here)."

    If your read the conversation and details before you comment on this matter, you will see that how many times it was told how to switch DNSs to this guy tough he had not a hosting service except 1and1 , this human is toughting that buying a DNS managent feature for his domain registration is kind of a hosting plan also... Beside THE NATURE OF THIS THREAD IS THE AWFULL TRUTH ABOUT WEB HOSTING he is as clueless as unable to switch his domain DNSs but the domain that is issued here is a web-site that he offer web hosting

    No offense, but I did see poor spelling and grammar on your part and you didn't explain it will. Didn't you close the conversation on HIM?

    Funny thing is, this the URL to his site now::
