Do you guys run multiple sites?

  • 00Dan Tuesday, February 22, 2011 9:25 AM Reply
    I just stumbled across a site that looks identical to DealExtreme, same page layout, same color scheme, same products, identical pricing, etc. (Won't say the name here in case they are a competitor)

    Do you guys run multiple sites and/or locations? They have an item that has been unavailable on DealExtreme for some time now.

    If they are affliated, I'd like to get the item thru DealExtreme if possible since that's the site I have been purchasing from.

    VolumeRate is the only DX site.

    I know the one you're on about, and they just copied the WHOLE DX site including the forum and forum posts made by DX customers!!!
    Cant say i would ever trust a site that does that, the choice is yours!

    Would have liked to have seen that, just out of curiosity.

    So that site isn't hosted in America like DX then? Otherwise there'd be copyright issues surely.

    DX stealing?

    DX ought to change their hosting to a different country.

    Department of Homeland Security can arbitrarily seize domains over any accusation of piracy thanks to the freaking Patriot Act. One bit torrent site moved its domain to .me and changed its hosting to keep this from happening.



    Edit: I just checked out the site in question. It sounds like they are being opportunistic of the New Year's chaos that DX got into. Please DX try to avoid such "extremes" in the future. You have a good site and service, but it should be better organized. And no I am not referring to orders taking a month or two to arrive because I am okay with that.

    Only make sure, you don't log in to that fake site with your login of the real DX. Once they have your account details, they could pirate your orders here and change the delivery adress.

    @cyclist, "VolumeRate is the only DX site."

    thats not true, there is the outlet, the card one and the naughty one amongst others and unless things have changed vrs was verboten to mention here either (although d p is even though it hasnt existed for more than a year and now uses a completely different name) then there was dx's long time nemesis that starts with the letter "f" (for fail in most cases) no one even seems to bother discussing them any more.
