what type of misleading advertisement did they offer for you? i dont think you are able to sue a business for bad support.. i dont think, unless of course there is a guarantee on which include.

i believe really the only type of suit you can bring facing a webhost is that if they over-billed you or didnt give you a refund (when they give refunds) throughout whatever time period limit they guarantee it.

most webhosts possess a t.o.s./policy you accept that states black outs or down time (anything you want to refer to it as), or specific deficits developing from utilization of service cant be utilized against them in almost any type of legal dispute. therefore if that's your reason for steamed together, i dont think it may be utilized in a suit.

best factor related to a number you aren't happy with would be to cancel your bank account. should you cant cancel your bank account since the host causes it to be terribly difficult, you'll be able to sue for your i believe.

misleading advertisement though is really a toughy to prove...

these are merely my opinions though, and i am not an attorney and so i have no idea. just thought id say a couple of words that can help you gather good data that may be used against them before you decide to put money into a genuine lawyer.
heh, gather enough angree people and you will sue with likelihood of winning ,, but 1 person wont do jack...

Check out http://www.webhosting.com/pages/shared/sample.htm and click on their cliet URL. I attempted this link within the last couple of days and that i couldn't observe that site. I don't know if the client in South america understands the issue?
Remarkably World wide web.WEBHOSTING.COM cancelled my account and my website isn't accessible. The main reason 'I slandered these questions public form'.
I've had a really bad knowledge about webhosting.com, and I am while assembling a blog to gather information from people. I presently have a listing of 36 individuals that have experienced bad encounters together. I additionally am beginning to make contact with all the those who have sites I'm able to wander through using telnet due to webhosting.com's insufficient security.

I'll publish the URL here when it is finished!

I am less thinking about suing them like me for making sure this does not occur to a lot of people.

WEBHOSTING.COM erased my site files in the server. My website domain url is: World wide web.JESUSANDYOU.COM. You won't have the ability to access the website.

We already began the legal process. It might take some time to listen to your decision.

It's good when the individuals are cautioned of the service. They're some difficult people to cope with.

We ought to most likely discover where they're keeping their servers. This past year we'd almost 30 days trouble with GLOBALCENTER in NY. I suspect, could they be leasing server for that virtual hosting using their company organizations.
I too have experienced a really bad knowledge about webhosting.com. I'm so frustrated at this time, I've no clue how to proceed. My website is lower not less than each day each month. Furthermore, this time around all mail located on the website is lower for more than 50 hrs -- presently my e-mail is inaccessible. I'm not able to obtain business messages and most likely taking a loss. At this time, I'm not thinking about law suit, but am certainly searching to maneuver. Can anybody recommend a great, reliable webhosting company that they've had experience as well as for whom they don't work :-)
I had been livid regarding their service, I cancelled my account after 8 hrs. I requested questions in advance however they could not deliver the things they guaranteed. Those are the worst host in the world, they spend all of their cash on advertising and none on their own services.

It required me forever to obtain a refund however they wouldn't produce back my $50.00 setup fee however i could not have known which i could setup my account together until once i registered - I could not use .htaccess to parse my html pages for server side includes.

And also the connection with their staff only agreed to be horrible, they did not appear of looking after whatsoever. I made the decision I'd never conduct business with another canadian company after them since i did not have good good legal remedies open to me.
Ahhh, seriously, they cannot Be bad as well as that inadequate legal remedies for $50 ain't worthwhile no hooty how.

-Got Chicken?
Really, for me personally at that time it had been an issue to become the $50.00, that which was worse was time it required for that refund under their "guarantee". I needed to pay another setup fee and that i selected a number that needed quarterly obligations. It added up. It had been even the principle which i needed to outlay cash $50.00 for that privilege of wasting 2 days establishing my account, investing numerous hrs on hold for their tech department, then scrambling to maneuver the website rapidly, then locating the internic transfer had hit, then getting many people visit my old site, some towards the non-existant site on their own server, and so forth, plus they really just did not provide a sh*t.

I've had two bad encounters with canadian companies and can never conduct business with another candian based company again - not worth using the chance, IMHO, whenever a company screws up in america I understand who to make contact with, I can not determine their system, I do not think their government is extremely large on supplying consumer remedies.
Just like an over-all note. Webhosting.com really outsources their first and second level technical support. As the technicians there know their stuff typically, they're not able to affect any changes for that customer when the problem is server related. This must be carried out by the 3rd level that is situated in Toronto Ont. Fundamental essentials admin's. Most clients are not aware fo the number of issues get increased within the run of the day. It may be within the Hundred's( not every server side incidentally) so when you will find only 20 people working, it's apparent that several things can get left. With that said, I'll accept most, the service ought to be better, however, It's enhancing.
I'll give a good example of what's encounter:
customer calls as their domain won't show up after registering to have an account.
Once the first line inspections the domain through internic they discover that the title servers haven't been transformed, or even the DNS hasn't had time for you to propagate. They explain the problem and customer dangles up. Following day customer calls back screaming because his site won't resolve. It's still a DNS problem and time will repair it.
It's hard to look after a clients problem once the customer is screaming to you. Should you be calm and reasonable ( and that i realize that this really is difficult to do ) then guarenteed, the Tech is going to do absolutly everything they are able to to assist resolve this problem.

If the problem is server side the tech is going to do his better to determine precisely what this problem is and obtain it resolved for you personally. Unfortunatley, this is accomplished via email and can take some time. Technical support comes with an escalation procedure that's recongnized as seperate make up the customer's, but it's stil a queued mail and it is clarified in sequence.

Thanks folk for that replies. I'm while getting their unethics towards the public. You are able to contact http://www.WebAssured.com for solving some disputes. You can also contact http://www.bbb.com. If any of these oraganizations discover that you have truth inside your side, they'll list the organization within their watchlist to ensure that public is going to be cautioned of these.
The only issue using the BBB is the fact that many people look for info on a business only *after* getting a poor experience. I can not remember after i ever appreciated to check on them for info *before* utilizing a company. This really is my fault, i understand, but I am certain not unique.

Carrying out a explore scriptkeeper, and deja is really a positive thing, if you will more often than not find a minimum of a couple of irate clients who band together and panic a little. If only happy clients were as vocal!
So glad that other medication is getting exactly the same difficulty that i'm!

I'm while switching my domain www.customguide.com from them after my website continues to be lower a minimum of an hour or so every single day within the last month! Their e-mail server is slow as molassas (if this works whatsoever), and technical support is non-existent. All I find yourself getting from their store is a few canned letter stating that someone will return to me within 24 to 48 hrs... right! I had been registered for any e-commerce site with the exception that Irrrve never received my shopping cart software software. I have delivering e-mails and making calls about every second day within the last 3 days, as much as the greatest levels and that i still do not have my shopping cart software! Technical support does not appear of looking after whatsoever: I call because my website is lower or can't send/receive e-mail as well as their bored reply is "Oh the server is lower..."

I am not in solicitors, however i think someone might make a category-action situation from it, espcially thinking about they advertise 99.9% uptime. I am sure webhosting.com is Not even close to that in my opinion. This site was lower a minimum of 24 hrs a few days ago. Makes me look wonderful too, as being a supposed e-commerce business.

The only real reason I opted for WebHosting.com is due to the glowing reviews/ratings they have received on several sites that rank hosting companies.
After you are most likely conscious that they probably compensated to become rated high. Not every review sites are just like this, quite a few options are. Individuals sites have numerous good characteristics (forums, sometimes reviews, etc.), however the ratings aren't generally one of these.
We'll attempt to publish WEBHOSTING.COM's replies to a lot of our complaints. We discovered they normally give large amount of groundless solutions. As We responded for them by mentioning their groundless solutions, they stopped delivering replies. World wide web.WEBASSUED.COM did another work for balance us to obtain some meaningfull solutions from their store why they erased our website using their server. No reply yet.

We've located our website in www.dellhost.com at this time. We personally feel they're good men.
My knowledge about webhosting.com? TERRIBLE!!

Unless of course that's the way it should be obviously.
