Universev: Another provider down the hole?

Comments

  • They had burst RAM on their Xen plans. Seriously, that should've been a huge warning sign.

  • Yes. First they switched to IPv6 only and now they're completely gone.

    <!>

  • You were with them too @WellGrounded? heh. It seems providers with one box offering <$15 year deals are way more likely just to disappear into the ether.

    Maybe this one'll spring back but I believe it's been down for 3-4 days.

    I'm fairly certain this one is a summer host that lasted through more seasons than expected.

  • I remember universev getting a hard time here and obviously it's a risk/reward thing for everyone in their decision to buy.

    Quick search on here says " Universev have been banned from here 4 times. "

  • Well, I'm not surprised. Looks like I was absolutely right regarding them.

    Bunch of loonies, threatening to have people attacked and what-not. Good riddance.

    Here lies Nekki. He loved massive amounts of storage, K-Pop and calling people cunts.

    0xdragon and I basically took apart the guy's first offer, and then he did this:

  • he must have got really busy with mafia duties and forgot to pay his server invoice.

  • I was tempted by the price to test them once, but I didn't. No webpage, just a nulled whmcs, no details, no address, no nothing! So, I stayed away (surely I didn;t want to provide them with paypal or other details)

  • @ricardo I'm pretty much with every provider on here, hah :)

  • same for me, spreading websites across disparate places amongst other things. i'd expected from the start that these occasions will happen, but it's still a pain in the arse. the providers that disappear (and reappear) should get a donation of 10k pharma links to their new website to save people the hassle of finding their website in a google search.

    Sometimes though, wouldn't you rather want to be proven wrong?

    It's the same thing when I administrate San Andreas Multiplayer admins. I demote the abusive ones and hope that they'll prove me wrong and show that they've earned the level they were previously set at. Sadly, they don't. They just go about whining like little kids and just make it worse for themselves. Occasionally however, I'll get that one bright bulb that realizes what he/she did was wrong and makes up for the mistakes.

    I like being proven wrong if it shows improvement or perseverance.

    As do I, but me and a few other members tried to explain to him about the fact we have rules and expectations here. It didn't work :(

    Seriously, I've seen when I've been wrong about someone.

    It's a shame, and in the end the people who take the loss are the consumers.

    1) They lost the money they invested in the host that just disappeared. (unless they can fight it on PayPal or their credit card company)

    2) One less host in the market lowers the competition and minimizes the opportunity for cheaper deals.

    Exactly. I tried my best to explain, but that failed. So the only thing I could do was warn others about the scam.

    How does the saying go again? An ounce of prevention is more effective than a pound of cure?

  • Basically, open your eyes and ask around/read reviews.
    We have a saying here, who doesnt open their eyes, opens the purse.

    Extremist conservative user, I wish to preserve human and civil rights, free speech, freedom of the press and worship, rule of law, democracy, peace and prosperity, social mobility, etc. Now you can draw your guns.
