Is ownweb rebranded to webplot? Or it just leaked customer information to others?

When I registered on ownweb I used an dedicated email address which never be used anywhere else

But now this email address received promo mail from webplot.co.uk

So I wonder is it a sub-brand of ownweb or it just bought customers information from ownweb?

    Get Web Hosting -> Powerful Box -> Own Web -> WebPlot

    EDIT 1: Just noticed that their recent (I think it was yesterday) offer thread has now been deleted because I remember commenting about how their last 3 offer threads were all under different brands/company names.

    EDIT 2: Added Powerful Box to the list - thanks _MS_

    Best avoided is the bottom line.

    Hosts sell their email lists for some Steam games all the time.

    It's the hallmark of a kiddie host.

  • Hi,

    I am sorry that this has confused people to enough I have had my provider tag taken away from me for after 6 years with no explanation.

    GetWebHosting.co.uk, Ownweb.co.uk and Powerfulbox.co.uk all existed and started at the same time and all shared the same WHMCS installation, people from Lowendtalk and mostly like to recognize GetWebHosting more out of these 3.

    GetWebhosting was a cheaper alternative to Powerful Box and Powerful Box was a cheaper alternative for managed services then Own Web. They was all the same company sharing the same WHMCS installation.

    Around 6 months ago I added Webplot to the mix for just design services, However I am now using it for hosting services after selling GetWebHosting, OwnWeb and Powerful Box. All those customers that did not want to be transferred got refunds or stayed with WebPlot. Because they shared the same WHMCS installation, they also shared the same mailchimp database, which is why some of you are now getting emails from WebPlot.

    I am sorry if people feel that what I have done was dodgy, however it was just my attempt to simplify on what I have made over the years.

    Really, I think you can figure it out without need someone to spell it out.

    Everyone that asked for refunds got refunds I uploaded £2500 to paypal account to honur refunds, wouldn't do that if I was a rip off merchant just for them to close it, their is providers on here that use nulled licenses that not been a member of community half the time I have been.

    So yeah, I was shocked to see they removed my provider tag. Their also other providers on here that have done similar things and still have their provider tags, an explanation would of been nice as well as all I can see at the moment its because I was using different brands.

    How come there is no mention of webplot anywhere in your past "company for sale" thread? It's just people complaining endlessly about lack of refund and allt he clients going to xhosts?

    More interestingly, xhosts says "xHosts - Trading As DDOS Protected" with a web page title of "IWEB COMMUNICATIONS", with no company name, so I'm curious how those people ended up...

    @starservices said: So yeah, I was shocked to see they removed my provider tag.

    I'd imagine if you explained yourself instead of spamming customers that are supposed to have been sold - and therefore out of your database - the staff might not have been woken up to a thread with a hundred reports piled on it.

    Were the mods/admins made aware of such changes?

    I believe they should be on the receiving end of an "FYI" if you're still offering your services here.

    I don't think they need to be made aware of absolutely everything, but considering the last exit was a mild disaster posting another offer with yet another brand name offering the identical thing the next month is in very bad taste.

  • thedpthedp Member

    @Jio said: don't think they need to be made aware of absolutely everything

    Well if there's a change in brand or company name, I think the mods/admins should be notified since they "signed up" as a provider for the tag under a different company and at least if anyone gets confused, they can at least confirm that it has been communicated to them.

    But yeah, maybe they don't absolutely need to but I just feel it's something that they should be made aware of.

    ownweb was a good service tbh, Rob just needed a couple support staff. Dude was basically doing everything himself and got burnt out, sadly his approach to shut down ownweb was poorly executed and that basically made us no longer want to do business with him. My advice would be for him to apply for a job at an existing host as he has he relevant knowledge to manage servers and hosting environments

  • Just be nice for mods to answer my ticket and point out what I done wrong, I done the same as some other providers on here.

    Maybe because I wasn't using any nulled WHMCS or not in any special group. Would of been nice to have an explanation after being member for over 6 years or at least answer ticket.

  • JioJio Member

    why do you think youre so entitled to a provider tag anyway? "taken away from me for after 6 years with no explanation." you've never participated once in any LET thread other than to post your identical weekly ad consisting of ovh or hetzner

    How about my tickets for a refund that you just ignored like many others

    That's not true, I havent in a while but to say I haven't at all is a lie. Its not about entitlement its about being fair, just always obeyed by the rules for having a provider tag even years ago when they was more enforced.
