In my early years of hosting, one of my first reseller accounts was with a company named hostnow.com. I had many of discussions with Mr. Faulkner, and I ended up getting burned by them and left and switched to olm.net for my reselling needs. One thing lead to another and at one point I ended up leaving OLM. One day I saw an add for CIHOST. They looked great, and had great deals so I signed up with them. Later on down the line (while hosting at CIHOST) I wanted to check to find out what happend to hostnow.com. Come to find out they were then forwarded and still are today to CIHOST. This was several years back. The one and same Chris Faulkner owns CIHOST. Funny thing is on his profile he never mentions hostnow.com. They even still have the same phone numbers and fax numbers as they did with hostingnow.com. (http://web.archive.org/web/20000124002239/...om/contact.html Snapshot of their site back in October of 1999.) I wish I new the things I know today.
Before choosing your webhost, make sure you do a complete check on past history. Look for the good/bad and anything you can find on the web about this company. I hope everyone can find this to be of some help

Yeah, same here, if I knew what I knew now about 5-6 months ago, I would have done things much much differently.
Well experience teaches you a lot of things ya know. Plus its the best way to learn.

Here is another storie
Binaryblocks was a Big (thats what the owner said) hosting company based in canada and They went out of the business in 2002 Septmber. Mr. Jayson Piercy owned that company and he left his hundreds of clinest without a word.
Looks at his old site from Webarchive
http://web.archive.org/web/20020531124757/...naryblocks.com/ ( it will take a while to load)
No body couldn't find jayson piercy and no informations about binay blocks. Some of the clients who got ripped of by Binaryblocks.com made a website and they disccused about Binaryblocks hin this website
And now he came up with a different company name http://www.aractelnetworks.com and he is trying to ripp of everybody..and he chnaged his name into some other names and saying jayson stolen his website...
