ipowerweb fails the customer service test

Not really news, they have been a pain to deal with for years.

Now the final straw.  I’m moving my domains off their service, and ipower doesn’t send out a confirmation of transfer notice.  So, I have to wait days for transfer wait to time out.  

It’s this type of behavior that is why they are losing customers to companies that understand the concept of customer service.

This is lab scale only so far.  The big question is how well does this scale up?
