    Exclamation Warning about Universerve.Inc

    This company has acquired a lot of smaller hosting companies over the last few years including budget only2dollars. Be warned they have ceased responding to support requests, none of the contact links work (even for sales) and they are not even responding to faxes. It is still possible to automatically purchase hosting via web forms of the companies they own. I could be wrong but it has all the hallmarks of a company in trouble and I would be very careful about purchasing any hosting with them until the situation becomes clearer.

    The ones that learn by reading.
    The few who learn by observation.
    The rest of us have to pee on the electric fence.

    If that's the case, it sounds like fair warning to stay away for the time being then. How did you come to know this though?

    We have a couple of sites hosted with companies that they have bought up. We have sent 16 mails and 3 faxes over a period of two weeks and haven't heard a bean. We have also sent ordinary mail but no response. The ****holes are still taking the direct debits though. I think they are done for personally and have cancelled all further payments until they can prove otherwise.

    I think you are really messed up with them.
    Two weeks and no response is really pathetic, Thanks for the warning alert.

    will never even dream to use them.
