    Web Host For SEO Scam

    I was recently ripped off by webhostforseo.com (WebHostForSEO) by Todd Spears. After having my sites go down for several days and getting no real support, I still have not been able to get a refund for their service. I only recently found that their prices for hosting are also outrageously expensive and it seems they don't even have their own servers.

    Please stay away from this company at all costs.

    I still can not post a reply and I have not received an activation email.

    All I can say is this person's accusations are 100% false. One server
    (out of a hundred) had a problem one week ago because every new user
    was using a WordPress plugin that bogged down the server and caused
    new connections not to be given out. It was not "down" apache was
    just out capacity at the moment, the outage was short lived. We
    corrected the problem and notified al user by email 3 times during
    the crisis. I was in constant communication, maybe your spam folder
    has the email you missed.

    We upgraded all the threads, ulimits and upgraded the hardware to
    handle more load, so the users can continue. None of our servers have
    been down in over a week. Some users get blocked by firewall and need
    to submit their IP to get unblocked. You have to go to support desk
    to do this.

    We have 2-4 techs including myslef on the support desk 24X7. I have
    personally answered over 100+ questions this past week. If you
    submitted a ticket then you got a reply.

    Try it, go there now, ANYONE can create a free account and issue a
    ticket you can even hit the contact us page, myself and or a
    technician will contact you back.

    As for not being our servers, again that is totally false. Our
    private cage is located in the http://informartusa.com. All are
    servers all mine paid for by me 100% wholly owned by this company. We
    are not resellers. We utilize two unique bandwidth providers.

    We are most expensive because we are not "just a host" we offer
    training and help to make money online and we offer advanced training
    on search engine optimization strategies.

    So whoever you are, contact me and you'll get a response, everyone
    does. I will be more than happy to give you a refund. .

    Thanks.

    That's surprising, the site is still up when I checked it just now?

    The SEO Hosting is all about dedicated IP offering which is a costly service.

    This guy Todd is still ripping off people with a company called SEO4YOU and he preys on all the new GO DADDY accounts and somehow gets an email list of all the new domain owners. Beware.

    Re: Web Host For SEO Scam

    Anyway to kick out the farangs. Maybe we should start kicking out the Thais in our countries and see how they like that.

    Aging one...yeah, I basically am just looking for an easy way to stay in Thailand. Legal teaching jobs don't pay that great, so I'm doing other things. I just need to find a way to legally stay in Thailand. I'll try the ED thing. If I don't get more than three months, I'll try another way.
