after reading on this forum, datapacket seem to scam people for their money! Highly recommend looking around for another hosting company.

Maybe open another thread on the forum with subject something like "recommend me a windows/helm host" etc (assuming thats what your looking for if looking at datapacket).

The only people complaining about DataPacket are those that abused the service.

DataPacket has provided proof of this fact for years, only to be ignored and has also provided very clear rebuttals and facts in the last couple of complaints on this board.

Choosing to ignore the facts is up to you. DataPacket provides excellent services and takes a gamble on low cost clients that otherwise would have no hosting or hosting with little to no features. There is very little room for complaints.

It’s just a shame that the low pricing attracts a lot of abuse/misuse and the competitors and certain moderators “knowing” the posts are false and malicious continue to use them as a marketing tool for their own services and continue the malicious bashing of DataPacket for their personal satisfaction instead of doing what’s right.

By the way we just terminated someone from India for email spamming, guess they will be here next to continue the bashing…

I understand what happened yesterday was entriely a big mistake on my part.
And I really applogize on all teh teams behalf that this will not happen again. I AM REAL SORRY. Please understand this. You can sure close my account anytime if you feel that I do this again. Please understand this.”

Get your facts straight. Afraid, that would be Dennis. He banned DataPacket because we pointed out the truth about this board and some of its users.

Yes, for the time being. In your post bashing DataPacket you forgot to mention you run content sites with a sole purpose of search engine spam, link farms and trying to profit off of adwords. This is objectionable and we will not host sites like this on our shared servers as explained to you.

I'm taking this personal. If you're someone from datapacket, I'd demand some facts right now. I do not spam your servers. I host smallish sites running on access databases on a reseller account. And I got terminated without warning. And no one bothered to reply my email messages. If you have facts, dish them out now, instead of avoiding the issue. I'm no longer expecting anything from datapacket at this point.

I think it's the other way round. I took a gamble, thinking that datapacket may have to chance to provide some good service and signed up. For the 3 months or so that I'm with datapacket, the servers keep going down, saying that there's some thread overloading issue. The emails are up and down as well. I kept tolerating the service, thinking that datapacket may be going through some growing pains. Instead, this is how I'm repaid. Terminated without warning.

Finally, I think I would have accepted this:
A) Termination (Datapacket has every right to determine who is abusing their server)
B) Serve at least an email notice that the account has been terminated because...

Instead, datapacket choose to do (A) and forget all about (B).
It appears that they are actually happy to see their clients hurt.
That's completely crap. Here's the reality. Datapacket doesn't know
how to keep their promises while keeping the packages at such low
prices. As a result, they start terminating accounts that start utilizing server resources. Bottom line, they can't deliver.

I’m not going to argue with you. I have provided the facts. We closed your account because of search engine spam and issued a refund for your last payment. We have done what’s best for our company and other clients sharing the same server.

Ok, I take you at your word then.
I run a network of sites with adsense on them. I work with 4 different hosting companies now, none of them find my content objectionable. In fact, I'm one of their easiest customers.

So everyone, hear datapacket. No running of sites with adsense.
I do not run link farms. I make sites with good solid content, running adsense on it. Here's an example:

http://bmw.sgbroadbandhosting.com

Let the customers judge for themselves. What's wrong with this site? How much bandwidth can they consume? I run many of them. All other hosts have no problems. Heck, if I'm not making money with my sites, why would I even bother upgrading? Are you guys out of your mind or just plain stupid?

That's why I say, if it's out of your business parameters to object for sites like this, why don't you contact me or respond to my email messages?
Instead, terminating the account without warning, then coming to the forum to defend coz you see me bashing your company? Actually, I wouldn't even call it bashing. It's just nice to let other people know that there are indeed such silly companies around.

I am actually waiting for the servers to stabilise before going further (upgrading my accounts, referring more business). I refer lots of customers to my current hosting companies, everyone, except datapacket. Firstly, their servers are unstable. Now they've given me an unforgivable reason, they won't refrain from hurting their customers.

Ok that's fine.
I'm way over datapacket now.
Please provide the refund transaction ID here, knowing that you're not going to respond to emails.
Thanks.

When the “sole purpose” of the sites are to run adsense and then you use hundreds of sub domains and .biz/.info domains including making link farms from some of the top level domains, it is only one thing “search engine spam”, and we will not host these types of sites.

You may not appreciate our efforts, but innocent clients will.

I'm sure they will.
I run 100+ to be more precise, of such small sites.
Honestly, although it doesn't serve a purpose, what's wrong with running sites from subdomains? I just listed one in my previous post as an example.
You advertise your services as unlimited domains, unlimited subdomains, and when your servers can't take it, you close the account.

It's thoughtful of you to think of other innocent clients. I'm just pissed at losing tons of data because of your inconsiderate action. Back to the same question, "Why couldn't you just send a simple email to let me backup the data?!?"

There was no ill intent to harm your servers by loading those sites. I don't spam. If the servers can't take it, just let me know. Don't you guys monitor the damn thing? It wouldn't have come to this if someone has replied to my emails. You have no idea how much work have gone into those sites. This is just wrong.
