iPowerWeb promises everywhere an unconditional 30 days money back guarantee. Well, I have cancelled my web hosting account within 30 days because of poor service and now have to chase after my money.
iPowerWeb promised me a refund twice, but did not pay and now stopped responding to my email. So much for honesty.
Could you please tell me how consumer protection works in the USA?
How do you deal with this kind of fraud?

The best way of dealing with it is research research research.

That's why try before you buy is the best policy for those without reputations for reliability and honesty.
Promises mean nothing - especially those issued on the internet by outfits that can disappear as fast as the appear.
Any firm without a history that doesn't offer FREE tiral periods should be ignored just like all those emails dealing with Nigerian millions.

So Gerd does this mean you need a new web host. I would never do this. Plus all our customers never refund because service is the main feature of a host then its space and other resources. If you do post back.

Re: iPowerWeb trouble
I have used ipowerbweb on a lot of the sites I designed for people and I never had a problem. I am curious as to what kind of trouble you had with them?

They are really cheap and in the webhosting market you get what you pay for, if it was by credit card do a charge back.

I am not trying to start an arguement, I just wanted to know what exactly they have done. I can switch on my sites, but I dont think my clients would bother since they have not had any trouble with them.

Since I do webhosting for some of the area business, I always use ipowerweb. Everything has been smooth sailing on my end.
Just thought I would my two cents in.

ipowerweb is a ripoff!
ipowerweb claims 24-hour tech service. There isn't any. Repeated phone calls get shunted to voice mail - no call is ever returned.
Holding for the "next available " agent is a joke. Nobody ever answers. Not in the morning or after midnight. I have been calling since 12-13-2003. Today is 12-16-2003 . Nobody ever answered; nobody has called back. I received 2 autoresponds emails. The first was a receipt. The second asked for information already contained within the first email complaint.
This entire operation appears to be a "front" for defrauding customers out of their money.
Billing and sales calls go to the same place as "tech support". Save your money. Shop elsewhere. I think these people are crooks and thieves.

My website has been suspended...
Hello everybody !
Excuse my english but it's difficult to me to write and explain what happened with Ipowerweb.
Thay have suspended my website for spam activities. In fact, it's not spam but a message witch is sent by my autoresponder when someone write to me.
Here a copy of this message :
"Thanks for taking an interest in Alafair.com, your email address will be held in confidence.
Your information has been sent.
If you requested a response, you will receive it by E-Mail as quickly as we can.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
The Alafair.com Team
This same message is control by the autoresponder of Ipowerweb and they don't want to admit it.
The result is :
- Ipowerweb has closed my website.
- They don't answer me when I explain the situation.
- They manage the control of my domain name (trough aaaq.com) and don't want to change my hostservers to another one.
Is anybody could help me please ?
I don't know what to do...

I have said it before..there are a huge amount of hosts whom give you a free domain when you sign up for hosting, you should NEVER accept it. Some hosts will tell you that you can only use the domain that has been given to you with the account, thus you must take the free domain. Run do not walk away from these web hosts.

According to http://whois.sc/alafair.com , you're the admin contact for that domain. You should be able to transfer that domain to another registrar where you have control of it.
