      Has to scam few before he can pay for a license if that notion ever comes up in his mind.

      I did notice one called "PNZhost" recently - really hope they're on the up-and-up (and to be clear, at the moment I don't have any reason to think that they wouldn't be ... other than seeing them on LEB and thinking PonziHost, really...?)

      Anyhoo "good luck with your branding" I guess

      Well, the names are running out. Has to be either really creative or really dumb.

      Waitin' for someone to come up with Nighost or 666host.

      I mean, they straight up said in their announcement they need to fill nodes and are willing to cut "wearhouse pricing" to do it.

      They will get some suckers but how does a brand like this get approved to post 3 year deals?

      If you want results, start throwing deluxe.com into the scam titles. Once the parent starts getting hurt, things might change.

      I live relatively close by... Wonder if I should go down and see if they actually do have an office there. It does seem like it's not legit though, as the suite is currently listed as available for lease (ref http://fremontbusinesspark.com/pricing.html)

      I immediately thought this as well. Their marketing/adertising budget is likely several magnitudes more than the revenue from LowEnd land assets. The minute that they recognize this place is doing damage to their image is the minute this place's lights get turned off.

      Hello Everyone,

      Firstly, I am not certain how we got tied up in this thread. However the reported issue has been fixed, see below:

      image

      For full transparency, the issue was that we did not receive the email notifications that our WHMCS bill was due. This was not an error on WHMCS's side, but on our side, as we recently took over the assets of vpsAO and did not update the vendor notification email for WHMCS. We were only a few days past due on the license, so it did not trigger any license suspensions on our side, so was not made aware of the fact the license was suspended till now.

      We have sorted this out by updating the main email on file with whmcs.com/members and also set up a payment subscription to avoid this happening again.

      I fully agree that if you are using a pirated version of WHMCS you should not be in business in the first place. I would like to state that never have we used a pirated version of WHMCS, and I am happy to send invoices/proof to any moderators, or you can contact WHMCS Support yourself to confirm that we have never ran a pirated install of WHMCS and that vpsao.com has been actively paying for a license even before now.

      To address the other concern brought up regarding our company, Alan Gu is no longer with vpsAO since acquiring the company. We have now updated the contact information displayed on invoices, and thank you for bringing that up to our attention.

      Lastly, if it was not already clear, then I would like to confirm we have no affiliation with the mentioned host in the topic, HiFormance.

      vpsAO.com has rented VPS nodes with them, as well as Psychz. vpsAO also has colocated equipment located in QuadraNet DC in Los Angeles, CA. This has always been the case for years, even when vpsAO was under previous management.

      Thank you. You must understand that at present ColoCrossing is promoting a lot of hosts that are scams, and the biggest red flag is a 3-yearly deal - which you're promoting. Along with the recent change of ownership, etc etc it just really looks like another scam and this community is at the end of it's tether and is on high alert.

      To warm my cold, black, heart, could you provide a link to an IP address from either Quadranet or Psychz that has your SWIP/RWHOIS information on it?

      Last I checked QN automagically pushes RWHOIS entries through their billing panel, and I'm pretty sure Psychz is pretty good about keeping SWIP/RWHOIS recent.

      vpsao.com has been created on 2016-12-12, that's barely two years and two different managements since you're telling us that "Alan Gu" is no longer with you. This isn't reflected in your "about" page.
      I can't find your company on opencorporates.com or icis.corp.delaware.gov and as already noted, "RC Portfolio - 1209 N Orange St. - Wilmington, DE 19801" doesn't really tell us anything. We know you're claiming to be a Mr. Kevin, that's all.
      From domainbigdata we can see that the original registrant is Charles Brode, then in 2017-12-15 it was parked, then the current nameserver have been deployed on 2018-01-29. That would tumble down the activity of your business down to one year.
