I subscribed to Watch Dog Services for a year from Network Solutions. I chose not to renew. about four weeks prior to the expiration date I started to received DAILY reminder notices of the expiration. After expiration I received daily "please renew" messages for about 3 weeks. I then received a FINAL renewal email. AFter the final notice I received more "please renew" emails.... not sure how long this is going to continue.

I complained about this and NS says that they can't do anything about this because that's how the reminder script is programmed.
I am viewing these reminders a spam. I will be moving my domain elsewhere soon.
HERNDON, VIRGINIA -- Network Solutions uses a company called Orange Soda for their SEO services- they have over a 50% mark up in this product they are reselling. They do not have a system in place to manage all of their clients, if you want to save 50% go directly to Orange Soda for SEO Services.
Network Solutions has a reverse proxy paid search software they use to run campaigns on Google and Yahoo. They copied Yodel and Reach Local's platform and claim they have a unique product. They have a huge mark up in the clicks and charge for every call and action from Google. The sales representative lied to me and said they would only charge 20% management fee, but when I was going through the reporting I called my account manager and FINALLY got through to somebody, just to be told they have all of these hidden charges. It looked like they had over a 100% mark up.
My sales representative from Network Solutions told me they have a very high turn over of employees and a very low customer retention and I see why-
Very bad experience from Network Solutions, I would even go so far as to say Network Solutions is a scam!
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS -- We would like to strongly recommend not using Network Solutions. Since they took over Monster Commerce, it has been a nightmare. Things don't work, support is terrible. When you call them about a problem, they cause 2 or 3 new problems. Our Website has been non-operational for about 3 weeks. They just cant seem to get it together. And we are loosing money and business.

Very poor service

A disgruntled former volunteer for our non-profit group hacked into the website we have hosted by Network Solutions. They suggested changing the password, which was done four times, to no avail. It took an investigation by the police to stop the hacker. Network Solutions completely denies any hacking, despite their own login history which proves it. Network Solutions continually ignored emails regarding a resolution to this security issue from March until July. Network Solutions continues to ignore emails, responding to every fourth or fifth email, and only after I stated I will post all emails on our website for everyone to view and evaluate for themselves. They disregarded direct written instructions when issuing a refund, causing a $149.50 loss to our non-profit group.
They refuse to refund duplicate payments, stating they consider the matter closed.

ON 1-21-04 I CALLED AND TALKED TO CUSTOMER SERVICE. I HAVE EMAILS TO PROVE IT. I ASKED TO RESET MY PASSWORD AND TO TRANSFER MY DOMAIN NAME FOR PARKING AND HOSTING. THEY NEVER DID THE TRANSFER AS PROMISED AND THE DOMAIN NAME EXPIRED. ALL I GET FROM THE REPS AND SOME GUY WHO CALLS HIMSELF A SUPERVISOR IS THAT I HAVE TO PAY THEM 35.00 THEN THEY WILL RELEASE THE NAME AT THEIR DISCRETION. THEY ARE PURPOSELY SCREWING THE CONSUMER SO MY ADVISE IS TO GO ELSEWHERE FOR YOUR PARKING AND DOMAIN NAME NEEDS. THEY JUST DON'T GET IT. I ASKED FOR A PERSONS NAME IN THEIR CORPORATE RELATIONS DEPT THEY REFUSED TO GIVE IT TO ME. WHAT KIND OF A BUSINESS DOESN'T GIVE OUT THEIR PR PEOPLE'S NAMES. NETWORK SOLUTIONS IS SEEDY.1 Replies - Latest reply on 02/20/2004Add reply
