  • Yep, they are bad

  • Yep, just do a quick search for CentrioHost on LET. General consensus is that they're bad.

  • I've never had an issue with them this far... Suppose that may change when I need to renew my $2 wildcard cert...

    I doubt you're going to get it renewed for that price.

    Welcome to the 'Screwed by @CentrioHost' club.

    Nobody will get it renewed at $2. As they're banned from LET. You could open a ticket on their website to ask what they plan to do for the $2 renewals but I can guarantee that the response will be something along the lines of "we can't do $2 SSL as per GlobalSign regulations" and when you query why they've basically broken the contract agreed when purchasing the certificate their response will likely be "as per ToS we can terminate and/or change what we want when we want". That's what happened to me anyway.

    They even deleted my account on their site and revoked my SSL for 'fraud'. Presumably they didn't like me querying in the thread I opened earlier this month.

    "CentrioHost it's a dishonest company???"

    To answer this particular question... not sure how much of a company they really are.

    They claim that their registered address is somewhere in Dhaka, Bangladesh [big note to myself: Bangladesh != India... sorry about that ;)] (http://www.centriohost.com/contact). The same addresses is listed by a company called HaveHost (http://havehost.com/contact.html).

    Their WHOIS information states Flat 7 Barbanel House, Cephas Street, London, as another of their addresses. At the same address, a company named "Priyonti Boutique Limited" was listed, which was dissolved in 24 Sep 2013. Founding director was a Mrs Panna Khandaker from Dhaka, Bangladesh (http://www.dellam.com/07935894-PRIYONTI BOUTIQUE LIMITED). She now seems to work at a company called "London College of Business and Communication Limited), which was incorporated 4 days before Priyonti Boutique was dissolved. Another company that was registered at the address was "La Dolly IT Limited" (http://www.dellam.com/07696026-LA DOLLY IT LIMITED), dissolved in 19 Feb 2013. Directory was a Rafiqul Islam Khan from Dhaka, Bangladesh.

    And then there is this reference to Centriohost LLC with the same Kamrul H. Bappy person as CEO being a company registered in Lowell, Indiana, US (http://centriohost-llc.lowell.in.amfibi.com/us/c/7988867-centriohost-llc). Coincidentally the same address as for another provider, Fraghost (http://wiki.lowendbox.com/doku.php?id=fraghost.net).

    The more you search the less obvious it is with whom you are dealing as a potential customer.

    Oops. :o Big fail in geography. So perhaps they are in the Bangladesh registry of companies?

    Bangladeshi land used to be Indian, though, and Bangladeshis were Indian just a few decades ago.

    If I remember the textbook I taught in a previous life, the Muslims living in old India (which was today's Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi lands combined) moved out and formed West Pakistan and East Pakistan, and conversely the Hindus that lived in those two new Pakistani lands merged with the rest of the Hindu Indians in what is modern India (Hindus and Muslims used to kill each other a lot).

    The new Pakistani government was located in West Pakistan, but even though East Pakistani politicians had a presence there, the majority were West Pakistani and they ignored the needs of East Pakistan. So East Pakistan declared itself a separate country and became Bangladesh in order to take better care of itself. West Pakistan became Pakistan.

    And yeah, don't give CentrioHost any of your money.

    I'm really talented at telling SolusVM to reinstall my OS. I can help you do it, too, for absolutely fee.

    I dont blame you. Bangladesh was part of the territory portioned out to Pakistan as part of division of British India. Later it got independence and became a country. :)

    West Bengal, a close neighbour of Bangladesh is however part of India.

  • @holinhot I feel for you on this, as many-a person has been screwed by the aforementioned provider. I've sent you a PM with instructions on obtaining an identical wildcard certificate through us from SingleHOP (just the same) for free, hopefully that helps a bit.

    Pretty generous of you, @Hardcloud

    Note: Not asking for an SSL cert.

    Is that even legal? That's fraud afaik

  • Sent to everyone, all ~20 people that PMed me / highlighted me, haha. Seems this is a lot bigger of an issue then I had previously imagined.


    By the way, you guys (those who were scammed out of it) can notify SingleHOP, and the provider in question will have their SSL permissions revoked, as that is a clear breach of the Terms of Use for the service, as well as the Terms of Use for Tandem and the main account itself.

    I completely agree but contesting that very point is what got my CentrioHost account deleted and thinking about it, probably what got my SSL certificate revoked.

    I have the emails still from the tickets, here is a snippet.

    Each numbered point is their response and the coded text is what that numbered point is responding to.

    Greetings!

    Thanks for your queries regarding your SSL certificate reissue and I have just reviewed this ticket. Still you arguing a lot with some legal steps you want to take. So we are now canceling your billing account and certificate as fraud distribution, from now you are no longer able to purchase any service from here.

    1. You threatened our business? Please proceed. According to TOS your service has been canceled as you try to pose some kind of threat with our service - If you cannot then I would have to take this up with the Federal Trade Commission as you are refusing me the service I DID agree to.

    2. As per TOS We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion - don't try and terminate my services - we both know that is something you're not allowed to.

    3. You accept the offer which described there and you mentioned it as irrelevant - What it says on LET is irrelevant as it is not your ordering system and shows no specific terms of service.

    4. You have used the coupon code which is applicable for "LOWENDTALK" members and coupon code is "LET2SSL" and you say you don't agree the conditions which described on there even place the order without agreeing the information for the promo code - reading that there is nothing to say I agree to those conditions.

    Not that it will matter - and I guess you already now - but their TOS does not

    ... reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion. ...

    It states ...

    ... Depending on the severity of the violation, CENTRIOHOST may, at its sole discretion, restrict, suspend, or terminate a customer’s web hosting account and/or pursue other civil remedies. ...

    ... in the context of an alleged violation of its AUP. That clearly doesn't have anything to do with certificates.

    Or ...

    ... We reserve the right to refuse, cancel, or suspend service at our sole discretion. An example of refusal of service is if an account continues to abuse our policies after warnings. Refusal, cancellation or suspension of services especially holds true to issues with spam or any script abuse.

    ... which also does not read as if it has anything to do with certificates.
