Even though they state that Universe-Web is no more running a business which they simply bought the domain universe-web.com from GW, I believe that it is still exactly the same company run exactly the same person, yes the demon themself, Joe Merkle.
If you see the traceroute still shows universe-web.com, well, i presume they are still utilizing the same servers/hubs/location as GW did, even the DNS server are Universe-WEB.COM. The register form for UltraLink also points to cardservice, that was exactly the same that GW utilized in it's last several weeks. Helen Cato, allegedly the brand new owner, seemed to be connected with GW if this was operating as GW.

Beware people, for me it's one of Joe Merkle's aliases so that they can have more individuals to fall under their trap.

Please, stay Far from Ultralink -- It's universe-web!
Investigator, for those who have ANY proof (on paper) that Helen Cato was associated with that old Universe-Web, I would like a duplicate. I've published an alert about Universe-Web and Ultra Internet at certainly one of my websites, and am being threatened with law suit. Hey -- it's happened before! Therefore if I'm able to gather any evidence of an association between your old service and also the new (UltraLink.com and 2ultra.com) I'm able to safeguard myself, and then leave the warning online. Please e-mail n@forumhosts.com. Thanks!
Hello,

For anybody searching, Ultra Internet Isn't Universe-WEB INTERNET SERVICES! IF some of you need to get in touch, please so at(573)369-3300. Regrettably, nobody here (about this forum) had the courage to depart their contact details. I would like to call everybody that has published an inaccurate message. If anybody would choose to browse the current problem of Web-Hosting Magazine, the storyline about My opportunity is incorporated in the front from the book. ULTRALINK.NET (Ultra Internet) isn't by any means associated with Universe-Web. We bought the gear from a 3rd party, therefore we compensated another year from the domain title, to ensure that our local clients (most of them business proprietors, with this current email address printed on their own literature) could still use their emails. You won't find any proof on the contrary (N Suran), because there's none. I've found it most fascinating, that you're a web-webhost yourself, making your libelous claims even more damning (so far as where your interests lie).

Thanks,

Helen Cato
I attempted to call Ms. Debra Jean Suran, to obvious up any confusion regarding my identity (not Joe Merkle), and my opportunity (not Universe-Web), regrettably, Ms. Suran elected to rapidly let me know to "F***K OFF." Used to do inconvenience her for the reason that I known as her at eleven p.m. her time, not recognizing time differnce between us (although she seemed wide awake). I'd just discovered this thread, and just desired to obvious up all confusion As soon as possible, before Ms. Suran damages my opportunity and my title any more than she already has. I've been wrongly connected with another company (and the other individual), and won't still stand idly by while certain people defame me and my opportunity. FYI: Universe-Web and affiliates is bankrupt. Certainly one of my new clients received instructions using their attorney stating the organization is defunct. We still have a similar DNS because we're utilizing the same upstream provider, and equipment as GWEB had (all this information was already passed along to MS. Suran, however i am posting it for individuals individuals who don't know). I certainly hope that anybody feeling the need to publish another message regarding my opportunity, would a minimum of show the thanks to calling me, contacting me, as well as visiting see me personally. I'd like the chance to "prove" who I'm, and also to preserve my integrity, before other people posts messages defaming me and my opportunity, with no forethought of talking to me first.

Thanks,

Helen Cato
That's pretty interesting, Helen, since ultralink.net, 2ultra.com, and universe-web.com all have WHOIS info that points for you, and all sorts of have records which were transformed inside a month of one another. I am not to imply anything regarding your service(s), when i haven't really investigated it simply yet (so far as reading through reviews on and on to Deja), however it does seem like you're involved in some way.

So far as Deb's publish goes - I am unable to fathom, for that existence of me, why hosts overload as you've done rather than addressing the problems elevated inside a rational manner. N hasn't pointed out that they includes a webhost - actually, she pointed out nothing whatsoever beyond a request information. The only real factor you have done is advertise her service on her for individuals who are more likely to seek her out. Accusing her of libel is a nice serious matter. We do hope you have proof.

2ultra.com and universe-web.com, when i pointed out in the earlier publish, will also be associated with you, Helen. Would you observe how this looks?

How come something let me know we have got another TrueHosting within the making?

Now, Helen, you wouldn't like exactly the same type of status as Peter from TH can you...
Annette,

Case an informal observation, but shouldn't you be just battering lower every host available and reasoning that everybody can come for your webhost as, they figure, when you are worrying and losing bad light on everybody they're going to have a much better service along with you.....

From things i see, Annette is just searching for other people. And let us be truthful, the whois info is suspisious...

Really, Jordan, I greatly doubt she's doing that.

Should you follow-up the WHOIS data you will notice she's quite correct, and GalaxyWeb et. al. are controlled through the same people.

She's extremely complimentary of hosts who have provided good service - request her and she'll immediately title Alabanza and Valueweb as excellent companies (virtual or devoted). She also happens to maintain actions around the hosts front, as the relaxation people simply can't, or are not able to.
Should you also stored track of the Burst posts during the last couple of days, you'd also provide noted that they was extremy encouraging of Burst and VDI - up to and including point.

Besides, if she really did attempt to batter lower every host, she'd did my personal favorite (and current) hosts (Below10Host and Inetdesign2k) right now, along with other trustworthy hosts (WebServePro, Your-site.com)....

So, laid off
Really everyone ULTRAINTERNET is yet another company. When GALAXYWEB went completely defunct the lawyer in the so known as company, sent us a letter saying that they're defunct and completely bankrupt.

ULTRAINTERNET has got the domain from universe-web because ultrainternet required over dialup clientel from our area and most of the dialup clients have email using on universe-web.

ULTRAINTERNET also bought universe-web's equipment through a 3rd party. GALAXYWEB had its very own noc, and also the upstream from GALAXYWEB Repoe'd the gear to my understanding because GALAXYWEB didn't pay.

ANNETTE- additionally you appear to become a rather newby for this industry. You decide to go around to any or all the forums and publish things from the surface of your mind figures, that are in-accurate. I'd be MIGHTY careful basically was you.

I won't recommend your merchandise to the of my clients, as I don't much like your ethics.


Joe Devore

Really, no, I don't bypass bashing nearly every host available. I actually do try, however, to indicate what looks to become apparent lies or misleading information from hosts, or raise questions for individuals who may not know enough to obtain more information, like me a strong believer (pointed out before by me) in personal and corporate responsibility. Additionally, I'm quite encouraging of hosts who show themselves to become upright and honest, and who appear to become more worried about the welfare of the clients compared to the liner of the pockets. I've indicated just as much in lots of public forums.

If, while you suggest, Jordan, I'm simply carrying this out to obtain business - well, I can not do anything whatsoever regarding your opinion. However, such action by me could be within the same category because the other kinds of hosts pointed out above, which certainly doesn't mesh with my ethics. I've (just yesterday actually) known someone elsewhere for additional research after identifying that people couldn't provide him what he needed - surely not the objective of somebody just attempting to grab business.

Joe - Yes, I'm a newbie for this industry only so far as really running the organization. I've, however, had pretty extensive knowledge about hosts. I've no clue what "figures off the top" my mind you are speaking about. Can you choose to indicate a good example? So far as my ethics go - please visit above. I apologize that honesty and forthrightness inside a hst doesn't appeal to you. Others aren't seeing it exactly the same way, fortunately.

Concerning the WHOIS info - which was simply drawn as information: anything, nothing less. If Helen isn't associated with the organization this thread was began about, more energy to her. I've no comment one of the ways or another, since i have have no clue who she's. The thing is only to provide information and request the right questions to ensure that issues like this is often removed up. The data available around the WHOIS simply looks a little odd according to what Helen has stated.

Unrelated for this specific instance, the thing is and give people enough information to ensure that possible what they desire once they require it - including responding to questions, giving pointers to assets, and mentioning places (like Host Investigator, where, incidentally, we're not listed) that they'll choose help in making a their options about things. If others check this out as some type of dishonest behavior - well, again, I can not do anything whatsoever about opinions. It shameful that some hosts act in the way they are doing, with risks of legal cases and nasty messages when individuals publish bad reviews or inquire further on things. Knowing through the response I have received from my actions, however, many people are grateful for things i do. Since I Have demand high standards from people (including website hosts), and am myself honest almost to some fault, I've without doubt which i will have the ability to maintain their judgment of me and my company.

Oh, so that as a follow-as much as BC - thanks, BC, for that support. Yes, I have defended Burst (site5, too, since they are in the VDI NOC) every once in awhile. I have also pointed out your-site like a host to individuals, in line with the recommendations in the alt.www.website owner crew. So clearly I am not every gloom and disaster.

Annette -

So far as you searching for that customers, and making your very best make an effort to make certain customers are treated right, there's practically nothing wrong with this. I attempt to achieve that myself.

But so far as tugging info on whois and jumping to conclusions that ULTRAINTERNET is identical company as GALAXYWEB that's inaccurate. Helen provides substantial specifics of the problem, and instead of jumping to conclusions. If you're really curious and wish to be aware of TRUE details. Contact her and request her on her lawyer's information and phone the firm to ensure directly.

Or contact the Secretary of Condition (when i have) and appear up ULTRAINTERNET fictious title filing, nothing related to GALAXYWEB.

GALAXYWEB can also be defunct - I checked that by helping cover their Secretary of Condition of Missouri


Annette -

So far as ethics are worried, I'm just worried about posting information and inferring without actual details.

Apart from that there's no problem with as being a newbie towards the industry. Everybody is totally new at some point or any other in some form of business, or industry.

Also - another factor mentioning to that's, do not be so biased for the situation. That's another factor that we was mentioning to using the ethical part. Don't believe all you see/read, that's a old one out of it, if guess what happens I am talking about.
Hi Joe -

I realize where you are originating from, really. But I am not necessarily biased about these kinds of things (well, maybe the real Hosting stuff, but that is in another league entirely ). Much more of a curious observer, really.

The data I published can be obtained to everybody - actually, if everyone was interested in individuals companies and did some investigation, that is what they'd find. I have made no discuss it apart from to indicate it appears to become contradictory as to the Helen has stated - this is the way it appears to a person without any additional information for you to use. I'm not jumping to conclusions here - I'm simply mentioning the explanation Helen gave might not be the best on the planet when in comparison to information like WHOIS. Trust me, I dislike unsupported claims (both professional and disadvantage) most likely a lot more than imaginable.

When I stated before, I've no clue who she's, and quite honestly, I do not worry (although I actually do personally think it rude to call someone without warning, late, if this has not been asked for). It's contigent on many of us to become as obvious (and calm) as you possibly can when confronted with issues such as this, because it causes it to be simpler to work things out. It not just helps in solving certain situations such as this - additionally, it helps make the hosting business appear less such as the shady, ego-driven, conning industry it seems to become sometimes.

Cheers.

Annette -

I can tell where you stand originating from when i stated formerly. I realize yesteryear companys for example TRUEHOSTING and several other peoples ***** to title a few, and much more. They've done some quite not-ethical things and should be used from the internet to be honest.

Universe-Web also deserved to become removed the web, and also the owner arrested.

I've personally worked with HELEN the industry excellent lady, and also have didn't have problems. For this reason I'm protecting the very fact a lot that GALAXYWEB is not related to ULTRAINTERNET besides Ultra required over many dialup clients of GALAXYWEB.

Thats all for the time being.

Thanks - for attempting to understand my debate
Joe - not a problem. Us are virtually on a single page, I'd imagine.
