    Exclamation You MOST DEFINITELY should NOT go with CanHost.Co.In

    Was just browsing through the dedicated server offers board, and here's a thread I came across:
    http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=863199

    Took a look at their website and it seemed really similar. Checked up on
    http://www.hostican.com

    And VoILA!

    http://www.canhost.co.in is a BIT by BIT rip of HostICan's design.
    What's more?

    Compare the testimonials..

    http://www.hostican.com/whyus/testimonials.php
    http://www.canhost.co.in/whyus/testimonials.php

    Names changed, testimonials copied, word by word.
    Site itself is hosted on Indian servers, not sure if this should impact it, but I guess that's how they've managed to stay up for so long?


    This is ONE company you DON'T want your dedicated servers with!

    They've put up offers on DP forums too. Goes to show they've been around with a scam for quite some time.

    Although, one is a reputed company (in some regards) while the other is a rip-off

    Wouldn't it be a little better just to develop your own ideas? I guess what ever is easiest is what some people try now days.

    maybe they are a division of hostican but I don't think so.

    there's a hostican member on here I'm sure, so maybe they can elaborate.

    Hey guys!

    Yes, they have stolen our design. Our legal folks are trying to get this resolved, but seem they are outside the US, making things a little harder.

    I would agree that you should NOT under any circumstances signup for this company, that has stolen our design (HostICan), and using it as their own.

    I would like to personally thank everyone in the WHT community for their support, as I'm sure you guys are aware about what its like when someone steals your design and poses that they are running a company.

    Best Regards,

    Denis

    Everything is basicly copied. Look at testimonials, design, company page, etc. All the same.
