Well friends, I’m sad to report that “preliminary” deal posted on 250Free’s home page fell through. Why Brian Salisbury has yet to update that fact escapes me. Read all about it on the webhostingtalk’s forum.
Even harder to imagine that Mr Salisbury is still taking automated payments from his 250Free Platinum and 250Host customers, each paying from $3.95 to $10.05 per month. He hasn’t disclosed how many of that 300,000+ client are paying customers. Even if only 1% of that total pay the monthly or quarterly fee, that’s still garners enough to pay his LiquidWeb bill. So what did he do with the money collected ever since 250Free’s servers were shut off?
Any paying 250Free members reading this should really contact the BBB, the Nevada state attorney general (and that of their state), maybe get the press involved.
All I know is when and if 250Free is back online, everyone will grab their data and run to the nearest, more reliable web host, and Brian Salisbury can count on no more business deals with the cyberworld set.
