Virtuoso Net Solutions - HORRIBLE COMPANY!!!


Virtuoso Net Solutions

After signing up for their reseller account I got my account details email, which included everything EXCEPT the WHM url and details, so no problem - I go to live chat with them and this is what happens:

Quote:
Virtuoso Net Solutions: Hello welcome how may I help you?
James Kelley: I recieved my account info, but it didn't include the URL to my WHM?
Virtuoso Net Solutions: and your customer number?
James Kelley: 972
Virtuoso Net Solutions: "SITE LOGIN VIA IP: ADMIN"
Virtuoso Net Solutions: "SITE ADMINISTRATOR http:// ADMIN (WHM)"
Virtuoso Net Solutions: The lines are there
Virtuoso Net Solutions: Under "Account Details:"
James Kelley: No, that is for CPANEL
Virtuoso Net Solutions: No, that is for WHM
Virtuoso Net Solutions: "ADMIN"
Virtuoso Net Solutions: "WHM"
James Kelley: There is nothing about WHM in the emails you sent me.
James Kelley: Control Panel LogiN:
You must login using IP ADDRESS before your DNS fully propagates
LOGIN VIA IP https://147.202.68.253:2083
ADMINISTRATOR URL http://dealmonster.us/cpanel

Virtuoso Net Solutions: Yes it is ther because it is a standard outgoing template and I am staring at it right now
Virtuoso Net Solutions: SITE LOGIN VIA IP: ADMIN https://147.202.68.253:2087
James Kelley: Are you calling me a LIAR?
Virtuoso Net Solutions: SITE ADMINISTRATOR http:// ADMIN (WHM) http://dealmonster.us/whm
Virtuoso Net Solutions: I think your tone is not necessary and naive.
Virtuoso Net Solutions: I told you it is a standard template and it is there
Virtuoso Net Solutions: So I'm telling you to look a little more careful
James Kelley: Im staring at the email RIGHT NOW
Virtuoso Net Solutions: So am I
Virtuoso Net Solutions: Your copy.
James Kelley: Account Details:
DOMAIN dealmonster.us
SITE URL http://www.dealmonster.us
IP ADDRESS 147.202.68.253
Control Panel LogiN:

James Kelley: thats all it say
James Kelley: under account details
Virtuoso Net Solutions: Perhaps your calling me a liar then?
James Kelley: I sure am.
Virtuoso Net Solutions: Good I'm glad.
Virtuoso Net Solutions: Go find another hosting provider
I obviously became Irritated after this person indirectly called me a liar like I didn't know how to read my own Email. As you can see in my attachment the Email DID NOT include the WHM info.

Mysteriously ... 10 minutes after this chat conversation I can no longer load their web sites home page. I sent an email explaining what had happened and that I needed to know if I should cancel my account, this is their reply:

Quote:
You were rude to the sales rep by calling him a liar. Good luck with the next person who
becomes a victim of your low class attitude.

Truly Yours,
Virtuoso Sales
I sent another email requesting a refund, doubtful I ever get it from these scumbags.

Jesus, what a rude host. You would think he would of just said, sorry to hear you didn't get that information. I'll send you a follow up email with that information about your account. I mean jeez...don't worry about them, they don't deserve to have you as a client.

While a chargeback is to be a last resort if it was a cc payment it'd be advisable if they do not reply to do so.

100% Agreed.

If anyone here is offering Reseller hosting for $10 range monthly based - please send me a message because I need to replace them.

The site didn't look too bad, but I guess you can't judge a book by its cover!

How much space and bandwidth are you requiring for your new website? You could use the host quote feature and look in the Shared/Reseller Hosting Offer forum. Good luck, hope the next host is more professional for you. Interesting...there domain is blocked from here. Not a good sign. Usually means they advertised there services and broke forum rules.

Considering they are banned from here, usually not a good thing (means they probably been spamming and such here in the past).

Did it ever occur to the host, that maybe their script is not working properly and sending the wrong template to the client. They are not liars, they are idiots. Why would anybody ever treat a customer like that unless either there scammers who just want your money, or have enough customers and don't give a crap.

At any rate, at least you found out early what type of company they are. Now you can move on and find a professional host who really wants your business.

As soon as I saw the thread title, I knew what the story would be. I was not disappointed:

http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...hreadid=401879

This company has established its reputation, as one of abusing its customers, which is indeed strange -- but true!

Why do that to the customer. In the world of tech support I have learned that you have to deal with customers with kid gloves. Maybe offer to re-send the e-mail or whatever. Never do anything like this.
