a pathetic little blog
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.
