EurekaHost - Who exactly are they?

Hi guys,

This deal is floating around the tech sites:
https://stacksocial.com/sales/eurekahost-unlimited-plan-lifetime-subscription?utm_campaign=feed&utm_medium=RSS&utm_source=www

I can't find anything about EurekaHost and the domain eurekahost.com is up for sale. I think I found a reference to that address on some review site, but nothing else. I'm just curious is all.

Is this another deadpool scammer? :o

  • Also curious about this. I can’t even easily find a website for them. I want to say I’ve SEEN Eureka stuff before (like a 404 etc) but can’t exactly remember.

  • When I search their name, the top results are the Stacksocial page, as well as this actual LowEndTalk form post. If this form post is higher in the search results then their actual website, that seems like a huge red flag to me.

  • Agree, seems a bit fishy.

  • That sound about as good as buying hosting from eBay.

    Yes, that's exactly what it sounds like. They seem to have EurekaDrive as well

    Apart from a self storage provider in Kansas, a search brings up nothing for that as well.

    No website just a panel: https://app.eurekahost.io/

    Page title “Laravel”

    The cpanel they’re selling is HostGator: https://gsf.websitewelcome.com:2083/

    This is seriously a HostGator reseller. This is the worst thing I’ve seen make it through StackSocial and it instantly tanks their credibility. I’m not saying they are incredibly above board but they’ve always been above this in my eyes. I’m really glad to have paid $39 to put this on blast. May it ensure that others don’t.

    Let's be clear here. HostGator promos are temporary. HG reseller is 140GB + 1400GB BW @ $24.95/m and that's if you pay for 36 months up front, otherwise it's $59.95/m. Such small reseller packages could result in EurekaHost fitting less than 50 customers into a single plan before having to branch out into a second account. This house of cards is absolutely a pump and dump scheme.

  • I was search through namesilo to find what extensions that unavailable. Found eurekahost.io but it doesnt load correctly. Then I go to dnsdumpster.com and yeah there it is, app.eurekahost.io.
    There's nothing more I can found so I stop my curiousity. I guess sooner or later somebody can find who really they are.

    But..

    I wasn't expecting someone really buy it :confounded:

    I've had some great deals there, so yes, not all junk. Shame they let their guard down with this one. You can't blame Covid for everything. :#

    I've been having a little fun with it, mostly just to try to convince stacksocial that they should restore my faith in them and delist it. Some more fun:

    Their contact link: https://app.eurekahost.io/home# (Just redirects to panel)
    Their privacy policy link: https://eurekahost.io/privacy
    Their terms of service link: https://eurekahost.io/terms
