    Wasn't sure where to post this: but I was wondering if anyone has any information or thoughts on the web developing company: idessolutions

    I have a contract with them to make a website and for the 2 months they've been ghosting or saying it's almost done when really nothing else is being done. Really not sure what I should be doing with this issue so any advice would be appreciated!


    On a side note: I'm not sure how feasible this is, but is anyone able to "hack" into that server and copy all the files pertaining to my website so I can it finished by a more reliable source? There will be compensation for the work!

    Thanks!

    I haven't used them before but it sounds like you're being played. I hope you didn't pay them the full price up front. If you did, dispute the charges immediately. That will get their attention to either finish the job ASAP or issue you a refund.

    Also, from the moment you signed up, how long did they say it would take them to complete the job? Two months seems to be too long to complete a website.

    Signed up with them in MARCH - it's also an e-commerce site and there have been delays on my part as well; from the beginning they were very attentive, spot on and progressive but lately they've been just spiraling down so I feel like it's more of a company issue than a scam. It's just been the last 2 months that have been bad for updating.

    Shame no one knows about them + couldn't find much on them on Google. No positive or negative reviews and they've had other clients before.


    Weird shit I have to say.
