Dood (more about Sister #3 later).

So Doteasy.com is supposed to be a free web host.  I was impressed enough by the rave my friend over at Tackyspoons the dot.com with *glint* gave about it, so I opted to try it out back in early August.  Who can refuse FREE?!  It’s free web hosting, people!  I’m no sucker!

So I signed up one domain as my “originating domain”, then referred myself back for another domain transfer to get the $35.00 waived, truly FREE.  Easy enough.  But I didn’t get a confirmation from the automated forms used for sign up.  No account number, no tracker, no member or user ID.  Nope. Nada.  Zip.  Zilch.  I tried emailing them with the forms.  Nope.  Nada.  Zip.  Zilch.  Then I panicked because I have an extra $70 just laying around to be spent.  I contacted my current domain host and they said they hadn’t received any domain transfer inquiries, so as a precaution I had them flag my account not to be released.  And wrote again to Doteasy.  You guessed what the reply was:  Nope.  Nada.  Zip.  Zilch.  Fine.  I must’ve gotten through to them… but again, no reply to know that I’d gotten through to them.

Two days ago I get a letter from Doteasy saying that since I didn’t finish completing my account they were releasing my record and cancelling me!  WTF?!  Today I get a bill from my credit card company showing a $35.00 charge for the original domain and since the referring domain was cleared without notification of set-up, they charged me for it!  WTF?! 

I am disputing the charge with my credit card company and having a fun time sending web-based hate mail to Doteasy through an account that doesn’t exist.  Yeah, the active account they say I have paid for actually doesn’t exist, even though they say it does, it doesn’t.  That would be why my error message keeps saying NO SUCH ACCOUNT!  And I can’t call because only morons have phones, certainly not primo web hosting services, and only 20th Century hold-outs don’t use web-based email or forms.

BEWARE OF DOTEASY AND HEED THE WARNINGS OF ALL THE FORMER AND POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS WHO POST NEGATIVE STORIES ABOUT THEM ON FEEDBACK SITES .

Obviously if this is the worst crime ever to be perpetrated against me, I will count myself lucky.  Nonetheless I am really pissy over this.  Really pissy.  So pissy.  Beyond the beyonds.

Love,
Sucker
