Because of recent news regarding HIT Web Design closing its doors, Systemtek Technologies is extending their services to help former HIT Web Design customers transfer their websites to a new hosting provider of their choice.
Online PR News – 20-March-2011 – – It’s not every day that the closing down of a web design company makes headlines, but the case of HIT Web Design involved the stranding of both thousands of customers and hundreds of employees—including some waiting on substantial back pay.
Until fairly recently, Provo, Utah-based HIT ranked as high as No. 22 on the Inc. 500, which indexes fast-growing private companies. The company’s success could largely be attributed to a marketing strategy that involved offering impossibly inexpensive web design packages that would later “hit” contracted clients with large and largely inescapable additional fees, all buried in the terms of service.
Some were not surprised to hear of HIT’s liquidation. Particularly in the last year, the company’s reputation has been riddled with complaints, with almost 1000 grievances filed at the Utah Better Business Bureau; that said, it is unclear whether customer dissatisfaction directly contributed to HIT’s shutting down. Regardless, reports indicate that the stranded web design customers have been relegated to hosting company Fibernet, which has posted a Q&A (with contact information) for these transferred clients.
In light of this situation, if you are a former HIT Web Design customer, Systemtek is now offering to transfer your website to another hosting provider at no charge. Please give us a call at (630)701-6163 or contact us through our website if you have any questions.
