    A "gentleman" (and I use this term quite loosely) that I am personally familiar with by the name of Chris McCoy (who also goes by the Internet nickname of fris) is starting up a company called Keyhosters (keyhosters.com).

    For those of you who may remember that name, he is the individual who ran a company called NeetHosting in the past (and defrauded quite a few people in the process--if you want to know more, look up "Neethosting" on Google) and is also the same individual responsible for giving away and hosting some of the most blatantly pornographic material on the Internet. (I will not post the links up here because they are adult in nature.)

    This is a very sick (as in chemically imbalanced) individual, and doing "business" with him would only cause everyone here a great deal of trouble. I know this sounds a little bit bizarre (especially coming from a mod), but please trust my judgement on this and avoid this company for your own sakes. Thank you.

    Knowing him, it probably is.

    Here's another "hosting company" to avoid:

    http://www.webstrators.com/

    They've sent me e-mails about their promos and when I checked out their site, I'm convinced that they're a scam. Especially since they have no privacy statement and all of the sites they claim to have designed were designed by other companies.

    LMAO!

    Wow, michiepoo, when you find them, you really find them. You're absolutely right not to trust these guys. I really shouldn't laugh but that 10 GB transfer for free plan is so completely absurd it's funny.

    Oh, I was laughing my head off when I first read their plans. I mean, El-Cheapo? Come on. And I find 999 MB of space and 100 GB transfer for only $18.95 a month outrageous.

    Isn't it sad that a company selling "web promotion" is ranked 535,134 by Alexa? LOL!

    Alexa's not a very good representation of a site rating...

    No, it's not. Alexa represents approximately 0.1% of the population.

    But when there's LARGE differences (like 50,000 vs. 500,000), you know that one is significantly larger than the other.
