Terrahost acquired by Epik?
I just received some spam from epik.com (Holiday Greetings from Epik.com), which I used to have some domains at before this year's security breach.
I found this paragraph interesting:
In addition, we made investments to enhance our premium domain brokerage services and expanded our customer success and marketing teams in order to complement and strengthen the value we bring to our clients and the industries we serve.. Earlier this year, we acquired Norway-based Terrahost.com, a specialist in resilient underground hosting. To support planned growth, next month we will launch our first US-based deep underground data center for client hosting.
I couldn't find any mention of Epik in Terrahost's website, nor any PR about the acquisition. I don't trust the owner of Epik to say anything truthful, after the attempted cover-up of the breach, can please @terrahost comment on the above?
hostsolutions.ro was acquired by TerraHost, which is bought by EPIK now?
Yeah, I was surprised too.
Here's what they sent:
Robert Monster? Really?
The simulation is fucked
RIP Terrahost y'all will be missed
after Epik.com mega hack and exposing all clients data and personal information, who seriously will be using underground hosting, aka bulletproof hosting, bunker hosting from them/terrahost/whatever they acquired. Even if they will be hosting it at the earth core/center, then also sorry.
I almost got into Terrahost after seeing their offer few days ago. Lucky me I didn't
RIP to a very nice provider, you will be missed
Didn't they suffer from a data breach recently? The acquisition checks out. Found this transcript on the web.
Quoted from https://blog.mollywhite.net/monster-qa/.
Pretty sure only the Norwegian HS servers were handed over to TerraHost, since HS was already colocating with TerraHost.
Not that it matters much, as I don't think there are any working RO servers...
Huh. I was aware of Sibyl being with TerraHost (and that Sibyl's parent company was Epik), but I was under the impression that Sibyl was just colocating within TerraHost's DC. The wording seems to imply that TerraHost was already part of Epik. Interesting... and kind of disappointing.
This is sad... Really sad...
I was actually impacted by the Epik security breach.
I still remember them sending some creepy religious cult email about how prayers would protect us and God would transform the evil into good or some shit like that after the hack instead of taking responsibility.
I really doubt they'd take good care of Terrahost...
@terrahost could you please confirm this? Epik is not a very good name to hear so we’d like to know if this really happened
That's a shame, they were an interesting provider at an interesting location but I'd suspect most people here won't want to touch it with a 10 foot pole now.
Super disappointing, @terrahost can you confirm when exactly Epik became an owner?
Oh shit, LET trust agreement broken, people gonna be mad.
I hate year 2021. Too many bad things happened this year, too many providers suffered bad changes, too much drama. The only great thing was the Black Friday event on LET.
And it's not even over... yet...
No more Emma gifs?
Emma is way too beautiful for something like this. This is drama, popcorn drama.
From involucration with one company... to getting in Epik and their poor management... indeed this is an epic fail within just one year.
i bet this was not included
@ehab - man... your liver... your kidneys...
