Serious Problem with MegaWebServer - 5gbhosting
I heard of some good reviews of 5gbhosting.com so i signup with them on the windows2000 server that is Megawebserver.com, however the set of admin controls and ftp server user ID and passwords they sent me does not work.

I write serveral emails to them since a couple of days ago and there is no reply from them at all. I am from singapore, does anyone has their contact so i could call them? There is no contact number stated in their website.

I am really need to transfer my domain hosting very urgently becos i have a number of videos to load. ..

If anyone could advice me on this will be really great.

Many many thanks

I found this information from there WhoIs record:

30823 Gaff RD

The company claims to be based in the UK but the domain
points to Albania as you can see above. I don't know if that
is a valid telephone number in Albania.

I also came across a couple of 404 not found pages and
their 'Live Help' seems to be non-functional as well. The
underlying company is UWH.BIZ Technology Inc. which can be
found here: http://www.uwh.biz/

According to the WhoIs information that company IS located
in the UK but they don't list a phone number in the WhoIs or
on that website.

They also claim to have a full help site at http://www.xazdns.com/helpdesk/
which gives me a nice 404 not found... Great!

Funny thing is that they claim 99.5% uptime on uwh.biz and
99.9% on megawebserver.com. Interesting.

I'd say this is not looking good!

Not that this helps you at all, but I read reviews that described them as scam artists.
