How Do I Deal With My Dubious Web Host? by izzyboi(m): 12:15am On Nov 10, 2019
Hello Webmasters

I tried to register another domain with my webhost, but it turned out it was already registered even though their site said it could be registered

So the issue is I was charged already, then they said there would be a refund but since over a month now, they haven't done that

They just keep posting me and now they've stopped replying completely!

Please what can I do

Unfortunately, you can't. However, you can do a review of your experience on your own blog with proofs and screenshots, label them as a scam post and leave permanently on your blog. You'd be surprised the level of damage the said post will do later.

Meanwhile, ensure you have migrated before your works disappear without a trace.

1. Maybe it's time to move to a better one.
2. If they are on twitter, tag them with your complaint.
3. If you paid with your credit/debit card ask your bank to reverse transaction.

You should backup your site before doing any of the above

I design websites @ affordable prices.

I suggest you find another domain and register with them with the payment already made.

Please tell us the name of the host.

Its quite annoying,it also gives one sleepless nights believing you've a smooth deal going on with somebody..only to get error/dubiousness as an end result of an open minded deals.

Well,online business can't be vouched for BUT that doesn't mean open minded & genuine people doesn't exist online

I'm not here to give sermon but to also report one Samson Ameh/Samson Rotimi Ameh who's a specialist on dubious online businesses. He owns webguruschoolmodel,pentsoft,ownwithease,etc. He has 'million' monikers on this forum(I hope he isn't the one that dealt with u). He will also blackmail you if you go chasing him.

Best wishes to you as I hope you'll recover the genuine business you did. cool

Change host and move on, resolve to nothing stops you from attaining your set goal. Move on if they refund you then good if see it as best. Move on

what if he doesn't have much visitors on his website or he prolly have clowns as visitor who doesn't give a f**k about reviews and all?

I think the best way is if the host operate a blog or keep a community of users, then he can deastroy them better there. Even if they'd be deleting most of his comments/posts buh many would have seen the messages except they'd moderate posts/comments before making it visible and i'm sure an hosting company wouldn't have such time.


Anyway op, if you have proof of payment, visit their office and threaten to go legal so you can get back your money after then you can deal with them by writing the right perfect review about their company.
