    Is this why Terrahost dropped Kansas City, Gigahost didn't want it or..?

    Either way, congrats.

    Kansas City was on an Epik datacenter/colo, IIRC.

  • Congratulations on making money through work and sale.

    How are you... online?

    Terrahost won't go into Gigahost, only vice versa.

    Trust me, I know what I'm saying.

  • Gigahost is a newly started company with Andreas Melsom Haakonsen as board member. He is also the owner of Melsom Holding, an investment company that owns 35% of the shares in Gigahost.
    That's the same Andreas Melsom Haakonsen that's been the director of Terrahost.

    This looks like a buyback, Terrahost is buying themselves free of Epik.
    And honestly I'm glad this is happening. I really like Terrahost but I sincerely despise Epik, I moved a lot of servers away from Terrahost when they merged with Epik. Not saying I'm going to move them back, but at least now Terrahost is a viable option again.

  • There are enough hints in the LET version of this thread.

  • As customer I did not feel any difference in quality of service before and during Epik ownership. I hope Terrahost will continue the same quality of service as before under Gigahost naming.

    @terrahost - will domain change from terrahost to gigahost or something?

    How are you... online?

    They already changed it yesterday.

    To be honest, no changes are needed, its good as it is. All they have to do is continue delivering services as they used to do, that's about it.

    Nothing bad to say about Terrahost/Gigahost, even under Epik ownership. Now that they are Epik-free, its something that will be appealing to even larger audience, that may not like Rob Monster.

    I'm personally very happy they are independent again, and its something I have predicted ;)
    I will only do more business with them after this ownership change, if anything. Everything has been amazing and I hope it continues.

    Still curious why they'd do a total ground-up rebrand. Terrahost order links redirect to Gigahost. Enimga control panel is now Flux.

    Terrahost has good brand recognition, it was a known name. Wonder why it's getting retired. The Gigahost account the OGF is actively lurking the site based on last seen time in their profile but hasn't touched base on any comments, questions or speculation yet.

    and I don't think they will.
    They tried this once - when Rob bought them and it was a shitshow, tons of new speculations and so. They gonna stay silent and just let it ripe :)

    Haven't bought a single service in VirMach Great Ryzen 2022 - 2023 Flash Sale.

    I can see two reasons.
    The first is legal, the names were not part of the deal and are still owned by Epik.
    Second is reputation, I think Terrahost underestimated the kind of smell that would come with being associated with Epik/Monster. Anyone that googles Terrahost will find it's related to Epik and that scares a lot of customers away. Even if they are not anymore, the internet never forgets.

    My bet is that it's the first one. If it was just a reputation thing, I don't think they would have renamed Enigma to Flux, Enigma is not "tainted" like Terrahost.
