    Trouble with squareinternet/starhosts

    I just want to warn everyone about the crappyness that is (now taken over by

    I paid for hosting from them for 2 years. Approximately 1 year into this hosting period, got taken over by who have no intention of continuing to host my site

    Also, to add insult to injury, when i signed up they promised that they would register the domain under my name, so that I would own it. I look now only to see that it is actually registered under their name, and it appears that I do not own it. If anyone wants to check, you can run a search on

    I used this hosting company on reccommendation of 2 friends, both of whom were also screwed over by the company in the end.

    Thanks, and remember to avoid this company.

    Hee, conveniently, they declined to put their phone number on their website. I wonder why.

    Anyway, after some ferreting in i managed to find it, even though it looks a little suspicious. I'm gonna give it a ring tomorrow.
