    Stay Fair Away From any FDC Services!

    as an Internet marketer I have several servers, With several different companies and data centers. one of our main servers has been with FDC

    We decided to choose them because they're pricing is fairly cheap shortly after getting services we experienced down times, almost on a daily basis ranging from 10 minutes to several hours. we debated leaving them many times but we had many files/websites/tools running on the server and really didn't have time to move every thing over to a different server.

    Anyways today i wake up to find out our services were suspended for non payment. so i contact support about the issue asking what i owe and why i didn't receive notice before hand, apparently we didn't pay for 4 months. i spoke to them and informed them that we have not received any invoices and are bill is set to auto renew so this should not have happened.

    i went ahead and asked if i could pay half of the invoice today and the rest in the a week, they said no i have to pay the full $1,075. Being with them for over a year i feel that that it was unreasonable for them not to help us out has it was there billing issue that cause this situation in the first place.


    Over all even if i didn't experience this billing issue we were planing on move services elsewhere. anytime they do maintenance all servers go down and it happens very often.

    Moral of the story is you get what you pay for stay FAR away from FDC

    I haven't had much problems with them, have gone through a few servers (sold the sites) with them.

    Pay your damn bill

    Yeah, any company that finds these mistakes will require 100% payment to get back online. I have had this happen to me in the past too. I just put the money aside so when they found it, I had it ready to pay.

    Saying they are the worse company ever seems harsh to be...If anything, this should have been a blessing

    Sounds like the host screwed up, if they really cant keep track of a server and forget to bill the client for 4 months, it shouldnt be the clients fault.

    You should still have to pay though. I had an FDC server for over a year, no problems. I've had similar billing issues with larger companies.. Fucking verizon pulled that shit on me for my cell phone data usage.. They back billed for 6 months! Fucking fuckers. I canceled after that.

    he did say he would pay half then, and half a week later. Its not like he said hes not going to pay it. They screwed up and the idiots dont let the client pay half now, half a week later.
