BEWARE OF AFRIHOST
Tim Skelton,
2.0
BEWARE OF AFRIHOST. Over the last 6 days I have had the most horrific experience of my life. I signed up with Afrihost on a silver domain hosting package to host my business website. I was assured by your consultant that the ... More process would be painless and my site would be live within 24 Hours. That was the first lie. Over the following 6 days, while trying to get my site online, which in 12 years has never been off line for a single second, I have typed over 4500 whatsapp messages to your useless support team, held on the telephone for over 6 hours, been lied to, been treated with disrespect, passed from pillar to post and treated like an idiot. In that time you have managed to delete my cpanel with 7 employee email accounts, destroy my online business, this has cost me hundreds of thousands of rands in lost revenue due to not having an available website, driven my anxiety and stress levels through the roof, I have literally not been able to sleep with worry, as you have cut off my only source of income. I have had clients phoning me that had placed orders and now cant see our website thinking I had taken their money and run, I have received a phone call yesterday where someone actually called me a scammer! Afrihost, you are pathetic. Your stall are incompetent and rude. You seriously over promised and under delivered. I AM APPALLED. GIAN VISSER CEO, YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED. As I write this I still have no website, I still have no emails. This is going to be posted EVERYWHERE! Less
