    [Sulv'd] I'm just having doubts about ftpit

    skirtTightskirtTight Member
    edited April 2013 in General

    I don't have anything against people from the middle-east, at all, so if it looks like a do, try to disregard it.

    Do note, that this is in no way, to be taken seriously.
    It's just a speculation, made up without any hard evidence.

    I just noticed that ftpit.com expires on July 08, 2013. Still, no big deal. I just thought that a serious service provider would've booked a domain much longer. Just saying. Just saying.

    Their name servers point out to tophost2u.com, they appear to be a shared hosting provider. Which happens to be weird too, but then again, it might just be a coincidence.

    A simple whois gives me this:
    Administrative Contact:
    Boggs, Christopher [email protected]
    FTPIT.COM
    2400 Ghent Ave
    Dayton, Ohio 45420
    United States
    +1.9372177676

    Technical Contact:
    Boggs, Christopher [email protected]
    FTPIT.COM
    2400 Ghent Ave
    Dayton, Ohio 45420
    United States
    +1.9372177676

    I just find it really weird, that a Christopher Boggs, has an email with some middle-eastern name.
    Looking up that email simple leads me to:
    A guy called Nipon Bharali.
    https://www.facebook.com/nbharali Apparentaly, ftpit's facebook page.
    A LOT of sites, most of them online shops (And a few containing items that look as if they were made for a middle-eastern market.)
    norisha2u.com linmuslimahdesign.com lamor-2.com skiyn.com, and so on.

    I just thought that this Bharali guy might've used Christopher Bogg's name simply because a quick google supports a bunch of successful people, don't really know.

    This doesn't really say anything, it just makes me doubt the identity of ftpit's owner/staff, and I'm just thinking that it's another one of those summer providers or w/e you call them.

    Then again, I'm just saying, I'm really, just saying.

    • India isn't even in the "middle east"

    • @superpilesos said: India isn't even in the "middle east"

      Then pretend it is (you get my point), I can't make out the difference as I don't really know a lot of indian names and such.

      If you check the about us page, it shows that him and christopher boggs are running it : http://www.ftpit.com/about-us/

      @skirtTight said: Their name servers point out to tophost2u.com, they appear to be a shared hosting provider. Which happens to be weird too, but then again, it might just be a coincidence.

      I think it is another business of him ? The entire /24 is assigned to him http://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET-198-245-66-0-1

    • Like I said, it's just a silly speculation.
      I just wonder if christopher boggs really exists, and the domain expiration just really confuses me too.

    • Check on whitepages.com
      christopher boggs does live at the address listed on the site

    • jarjar Provider

      Nipon is the owner. Not sure who the Christopher guy is.

      skirtTight said "an email with some middle-eastern name."

      How the f*ck is Bharali a middle eastern name?

      superpilesos "India isn't even in the "middle east"

      There's a certain segment of the American population who think everyone who lives in the region from Turkey to Bangladesh is Middle Eastern/Arab/Muslim/etc...probably the same 47% of Americans who can't even find India on a map.

      skirtTight said "I don't have anything against people from the middle-east, at all, so if it looks like I do,"

      the existence of this thread makes me think otherwise.

    • @pubcrawler I am from India originally as told before.That was my site,currently hardly operating it

    • If this is Christophers company, then why doesn't Chris have his own email/register his own domains? It's just downright strange to go about hording domains like that. Plus zero stopping disgruntled partner from absconding with the domain.

      Folks really need to speak with Jarland about how to operate a legitimate company that does things right. Believe me, I have shovel ready to dig :)

    • @pubcrawler not really,we both own it.Also we are in many other venture,this is a part of it.I am with jarland taking tips from him ,do not worry about it.He is a real helpful guy :)

      @pubcrawler You mean how I give my address to anyone who asks and have a door mat that says "come at me bro?" ;)

      Everything I own is locked with passwords, keys locked behind second passwords, all capable of remote wiping. Hefty but virtually unnoticeable video surveillance with redundant remote archiving. Guns that aren't made for hunting food, have them to prevent the need to use them. Security is cheap these days, no reason not to go the extra mile to be safe, and lying is just not as fun.

    • @ftpit. no doubt you are from India.

      Let's see how to sanitize things and make them palatable... I've commented on your offers and they seem good.

      "FtpIt is the product of Nipon Bharali & Christopher S. Boggs ""

      That's from the FTPIT website. Well that's good. Since Chris' name is on the domain info, why not his email or a neutral corporate one? Cause others will get the willies over this rightly. I mean your email leads to a pandoras box of things.

      !(http://www.ftpit.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/dc2-300x219.jpg)

      What the heck is that? That isn't "your" datacenter, nor Colocrossing Buffalo. Clean that up :)

    • @lbft, Spencer I think has always been civil / steered clear :) I wouldn't be surprised by anything though.

      Maybe 25% of hosts are green or naive and mislabel info, use info attached to other negative things, etc. Vast majority of stuff I stumble into though is nested deceit. Rus Foster style bullshit. Shellopolies.

      Any time I sniff something in Buffalo, I start looking at it hard. Surprised folks are still trying to sell Buffalo. Can't imagine there is much interest there. I mean it use to be like 15ms to NYC, now since they went cheap on the bandwidth and put XO (blackeye bandwidth) in, it's like 30ms to NYC... Pitiful.

    • @pubcrawler said: If this is Christophers company, then why doesn't Chris have his own email/register his own domains?

      This and the domain expiration date is exactly what made me doubt them.

      @pubcrawler domain has been renewed just now and email updated.
      haha Design will updated soon.Please wait 10 more days ,everything should be cleaned by then.I in no mood to clean that wordpress theme right now since we will remove them all ;)
      Here is my partner,we consider each other as brother.There is nothing like he will scam me by taking away the domain.We have all access to each other,so much is the trust between us.We are in joint venture in all of our coming projects.

    • See now that @skirtTight was entirely valid thing to bring to the table. Good find, as others surely saw such and might have went shopping elsewhere.

      Impressed with @ftpit quick response and fix of the issue.

      (subtly sliding FTPIT to the good provider stack)

      I still think @jarland should setup lowend school tutorial/video/etc. for new hosts. Would eliminate lots of hard learning.
