Global Internet Solutions (GISOL) Complaint - Hosting Hijack
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA -- Global Internet Solutions is a hosting provider based in California. They have started taking over their clients domain names and will be more than happy to transfer it back to you for $ 500.00. This company will not answer phone calls to their 800 number, but if you are lucky enough to get their "priority support number" they answer it under several different names. I spoke to an "Austin" who has previously answered the phone as "Brian."
When I spoke to this individual, it was because I had not renewed my hosting account. I had chosen not to renew due to the theft of my domain name by the company. He not only said that they were going to continue to keep my name, but was going to "send my account to collections." When I told him that it was my choice if I wanted to continue to pay for the hosting (my hosting contract had been fulfilled), he told me that it was not my choice but theirs.
I am not looking for a resolution from this company as they are unreliable and will not keep their promises. This is an informative post to make sure that no one else does business with this company.
