Featureprice rants

Although they’re restored their former website, for a while Featureprice was trying the “woe is me” approach while announcing its own demise. Here’s what someone grabbed from their website this morning:

Featureprice.com / Hosting-Network, Inc. Is Closing Business April 2003.

All clients are recommended to move within the next 14days.

All sites and servers will be left online while we are closing down. All clients are requested to download all files and here is a list of Companies that have been to visit Featureprice and have not been able to reach any deal that would allow a smooth migration to their services.

1. GlobalHost.com – Nice People, Great Support, Will Give Incentives For FP Clients to Join

2. Atlantic.net – Good Business Model, Hard Working Professionals

3. Ipowerweb – Value Hosting Provider

4. Server4you.com – (BEST OFFER) Great Server Deals For Unbelievable Prices and FP clients get 6mo FREE

5. Affinity – Has Built A Large Business Based From Acquisition

Ecommerce.com, SiteandSites and a host of other domain names are owned exclusively by Fathi Said. Stay away from any site or business that has Austrian Ownership or Fathi Said or any other affiliation with Fathi Said. Fathi while in office ran several businesses “on the side” and sold services that looked like the respective names but were indeed FP services, no one at FP approved this but Fathi, Fathi also registered Dotregister domains for the clients and did not title them in the right names or addresses but with 100% owned by featureprice client, these domains were held hostage, with numerous other domains like Featureprice.com unless the officers of FP were to give him over a half million dollars, the officers called the FBI for Extortion. The officers of the company were faced with a decision to make, sign a release of ecommerce to fathi or face the domains of all our clients to be misdirected. Fathi got his release and then we got the passwords to the account, all of this was done with communications with the FBI and corporate counsel. Fathi also worked with many companies that we will not release the names of and received payments for the placement of their domains in the list of directories. More to come â€?

NEVER TRUST DIRECTORIES, NEVER TRUST FORUMS These directories are paid for and profit by the amount of sales that the links generate and the reviews that are made within those directories are paid and forums that people like to post their hate and problems are fueled by someone whom is hosting that site or etc. Reviews and Directories / Bulletin Boards Forums are not reliable or trust worthy sources.

TRUST WORD OF MOUTH!! TRUST YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND NEVER TRUST FORUMS AND DIRECTORIES / REVIEWS

Perfect Example of MISUSE of information is bulletin boards that release information that is private and confidential, family, children, mothers and fathers and innocent contract employees have been hurt by a lot of clients and former employees (any employee dismissed from FP was for cause, drugs, etc.) that misuse their sources of information, they signed agreements with Equifax and Online Record Searches to not MISUSE this information, they have violated the agreements and have resulted in hurt and anguish for these people. Bulletin Boards, Hate Sites, Etc. have been formed and state very wrong things and distort the truth of FP and don’t state that Officers and Supervisors and Staff worked 12-16hrs a day 7 days a week to keep services stable as much as humanly possible and as much as can be done with shared hosting servers and those whom abuse them, spam from them.

This site will be updated ongoing and will tell the story of FP and all that has led to this, you will know about everything, you will know even to the potential deals that did not work with companies and why FP was not purchased (and NO! it is not because of anything bad) but the dealings in corporate business. And finally but not least, FP was never about just money, FP was about the dream and goals of a few people that made it happen and gave their all, not of the false and untrue statements of upset people. We will write parts and publish in parts, visit back often and don’t miss a line.

Thank you for thsoe clients that have called FP home for years and thank you to all those whom have supported FP since they came to know the truth and spirit of the company.

Featureprice’s Closing is NOT BY ITS DECISION. It is due to Nova Information Systems (merchantconnect.com) “holding” the revenues from featureprice. Featureprice has not seen a penny since the “hold” and FP must shutdown since it has no money, no realized revenues. FP cannot pay employees or anything due to Nova’s position.

    Wow — this is rockin’ — I wonder if they were hacked, or simply are being run by 10-year-olds?

    HAH!

    Of course, they’re laying blame on Fathi Said! Go here:

    This is the best sci-fi story I have ever read! Hysterical! Of course, as a former Feature-Rice client, I have lost much business because of their shit, but hey… After I read this gem, everything was forgiven. No business like show business.
