I am pretty sure what most of you don’t even know what the title means and I ain’t suprised but GeekRack was a webhost that disappeared with all of it’s clients money and ultimately data and then left them to deal with the shit she created.
The owner was someone called Shequeita and I wouldn’t be suprised if she started another webhost some day (Or even have) but this post ain’t about attacking GeekRack (I am pretty sure a few seconds Google Search will tell you enough) but about Uk2Web (http://uk2web.net/).
As of posting this (As of this edit, they have now have another page saying that they download the template for free) they are using the exact same template as GeekRack but ultimately, they seem to even be using the exact same client database and even forum database that GeekRack used. When checking the forum, even the login page goes to http://geekrack.net/forums/login.php?do=login (As of this edit, the forum ain’t online, what a surpise).
Now, the question is this the same person running the webhost that screwed many people over or is this someone who honestly “somehow” using the exact same database and such.
Everything below this is now an addon about this. Post bumped
It seems that the web designer sold everything to this person, even the database. I am pretty sure this will raise many legal issues about this and what will happen to the designer. Infact, I wonder what happens if I went around posting that this new “company” has access to GeekRack data, I wonder how long it would last for.
Infact, looking back at the old post, I found something fishy. It seems that the designer sold the design & database, yet UK2WEB claims that it downloaded free of the internet. Honestly, I wouldn’t go near this new company, at least not before it explains everything.
I will keep this post updated when news comes.
