Diabolomoves and GISOL
« on: September 10, 2008, 10:26:37 pm »
Hello all

Following a nightmare with my previous hosts GISOL (never ever ever use this hosting company) I'm glad to say that the diabolomoves shop is now back online at www.diabolomoves.co.uk

I've switched to a new (very trustworthy) host 34sp located in Manchester only 4 miles from my house so no more problems.

Sorry it took so long to get back online - I had to re-script over 200 files to make it work on the new servers.

As an apology for the lack of service lately - All forum members can receive a 5% discount on everything in the store until the end of September - just use the discount code "dcaforum" when you order.

WARNING TO ALL, my old host GISOL are a bunch of fraudulent thieves (never use them) - all will be fine for the first year - then they will screw you.

This is a highly dubious company - deal with them at you peril
Any doubters should google "GISOL" & "FRAUD" (I wish I'd have done this before) - but trust me -  just NEVER EVER USE THIS COMPANY

(edited to remove the rant details whilst I get the legal stuff sorted for my chargeback attempts)

Wow that's quite the ordeal. Let's all hope you get your $1000 back. Keep us updated. (Edit, OK - it's a lot more than that!)

Earlier this year I dealt with a fraudulent flower company on Mother's day. It shocked me too and I wished I had done a bit more research first. Nothing like your scenario though. There's a lesson in here for all of us.

It always amazes me that these types of companies can continue to exist, but it's the internet medium that allows for a continuous stream of unknowing victims.

Want to add a GISOL = FRAUD to your signature for google sake? ;) Actually, better might be to make a quick post on the main page since google picks that up nicely.

If anyone else is looking for a reliable non-fraudulent webhost company, BlueHost, which we're hosted on, has been very good. If you ever plan on getting hosting with them, let me know and we can set up a referral where part of your first year fees go back to the forum.

Edit - or just go through this referral link:
http://www.bluehost.com/track/diaboloca/

I've also heard very good things about DreamHost... although they don't have cPanel, which sealed the deal for me.

I did try Bluehost last year (on your recommendation at the time) but they didn't do .asp support which my software required.

Yeah - the good people at report-gisol have been very good in offering help & legal advice - thanks to Mike & Frank (the legal whiz)

Strange thing is - when I googled them last year as I was setting up - I got decent reviews

I hope you manage to recover your money, and hopefully Gisol gets a good legal bashing.

I'd love the 5% discount if I didn't have to wait until Christmas, but I'm sure some people will make good use of it.
