    What a lie.
    We have alot of growth since beginning of COVID-19. Same with some other Hostings i talked to. Even our Hosting-Company customers who we host Nodes for now most of them have more Servers with us now. Theres no much negative effects in the Hosting Industry. Im sure.

  • I always had them down as a scam anyway. My first awareness of them was via UCE to addresses associated with two other companies I used to have accounts with claiming that I'd signed up for the messages (because yeah, I would sign up to your mailing list with the address I use for another host).

    Maybe they are stupid enough to genuinely believe they are losing customers because of C19, though I doubt it, but it is more likely they lost them due to poor performance/support/both and the remaining income wasn't worth what little support load they did bother to take on.

    Remember for next time:

    • If it looks too good to be true it most likely is
    • If someone is significantly cheaper than the competition, ask what corners they may have had to cut to achieve that
    • And don't sign-up for anything annual unless you are reasonably sure the host is good or you can afford to pay that much for a few months if it only lasts that long.

    Agreed. Business is booming, PS5s are selling for $700 a piece on eBay. Everyone is a day trader now. I'm sure plenty of people out there are experiencing hardship due to economic circumstances, but this market ain't it.

  • mansoormansoor Member

    Online business is booming. More and more businesses want to go online for order taking or expand their reach as locally they are hurting so the reason makes no sense

  • deankdeank Member, Troll

    Some business sectors are dying due to Covid.

    Web hosting ain't one of them. In fact, it's doing a lot better after Covid. What a bullshit excuse.

    Ask PSK Hosting where they're selling/sharing their customers' database - and that could be your new home for next 12 or 24 months (or less)

  • msallak1msallak1 Member

    To be honest you kinda deserve this outcome becase mutiple people warned you before.
    Lets just hope they will allow you to back up your data.

    a few things that stood out to me in this.

    Every business has been hit with Covid one way or another. So its not just limited to just you. Its how you handle it and work with clients and make changes so your business keeps going.

    second thing that stood out is they don't have access to their panel. You can refund right in paypal.
    Plus your server is still live so you can still have your panel running on the backend.

    Easier thing would have been is reach out to a larger host and have them take over your clients and keep everyone up and running.

    No, they can't let someone else take over.

    Because they will be back with another name. I mean, they still have the email list.

    I have done some LE take overs in the past (7/8) and almost all the time, the overhead of maintaining some "special" deals was way too high.

    Most L.E brands never focuses on building brand value. So at the end, you either end up shutting down or disappearing. I have rejected a decent amount of deals for the same reason recently.

    It is hard to take over a customer base that literally brings you negative equity.

    I have the same feeling as yours where overall there is growth with Internet being one of the main activity for many for a while, the hosting industry was rather spared from the situation.
    However, on our end there were still some businesses relying on a regular world left with no income which struggled quite a lot. Not sure it is the case of @OP company though ;)

    We have alot of growth since beginning of COVID-19.

    Of course it could be true in a negative way. As people with services hosted by them that were more-or-less left idle started to try use them properly (for instance due to pivoting a business online, or being furloughed & having more time to follow up on earlier stalled projects), they may have discovered problems with performance, support, or both, and decided to move on. So C19 changes might not be the core problem, but they could have been the catalyst.
