StartLogic is a web hosting company started by Thomas Gorny. The company currently hosts over 100,000 websites, indicating significant viral growth. Their servers are housed in a datacenter located in Boston, Massachusetts.
StartLogic has been criticized for its reliability and customer service. The attack site www.startlogicsucks.com includes 50 user-submitted complaints, and is listed as the highest-ranked unofficial site in a Google search for StartLogic. The Better Business Bureau recorded 90 complaints in the current reporting period, although most have been listed as resolved or administratively closed.
StartLogic iPowerWeb, and Blue Domino are sister companies owned by Thomas Gorny and sharing the same headquarters. The two services are largely similar, leading some to suggest that they were forked solely to escape a poor corporate image.
iPowerWeb has an unsatisfactory record with the Better Business Bureau due to unanswered complaints and a failure to respond to complaints within the Bureau's time frame. As of September 2007, the BBB processed a total of 156 complaints against iPowerWeb within the previous 36 months. StopBadware.org has also reported that more sites hosted by iPowerWeb have wound up in their Website Clearinghouse than any other service. iPowerWeb has promised to work with StopBadware.org to solve this problem.
