HostMonkey.net has just been acquired by webRulon.com
Here is mail i've received from Hostmonkey
Hi, HostMonkey.net has just been acquired by webRulon.com. If you have a recurring subscription with Paypal please cancel it. If you pay your invoices manually without a subscription you can ignore this message. When it is time for your hosting services to be renewed you will have the option to update your billing information, however in the meantime you must cancel any future recurring transactions that are currently in place for your HostMonkey.net account.
I'm always very wary of buyouts/merges. It's completely your call if you want to stay, as I do not know your history with the host. Based on my experience usually it's a terrible several months for the transition and you may end up with a worse support team, slack server maintenance.
If you do stay, please come back and update us in a few months to let us know how it is going.
*Note that this is based on my history of 1 buyout and 1 merge, I have no experience with HostMonkey.net or webRulon.com*
WHT is now used as the Universal Hosting Helpdesk.
They seem to be around the industry for quite a while by their whois. I haven't heard of them, I hope things go well with them for you.
