“It is true, QuadraNet has purchased Crissic and I now hold a position at QuadraNet. My understanding is that QN will be emailing all existing customers once they have a full handle on the infrastructure of Crissic and get support situated on their end. The goal isn’t to keep customers in the dark, so look out for that one hopefully soon.”
Mr. MacMinn thanked everyone for giving Crissic a chance to grow and mature. He added he will “stick around and likely participate in the community discussions”, but that his”time in the industry has passed, and I hold no interest in re-entering the low-end market as a provider.”
Crissic Service Changes
Quadranet representative, Dustin Cisneros, answered some Crissic customers who were inquiring about why was the crissic.net domain redirecting to my.crissic.net or why all VPS services are now “out of stock.”
“Hello, Crissic has been acquired by QuadraNet.
QuadraNet has decided to keep inventory “out of stock” and will no longer be accepting new customers or additional orders via the Crissic brand.”
Mr. Cisneros also asked current Crissic customers who are interested in purchasing additional services to check out the Quadranet website, even suggesting potential customers to “consolidate multiple VPS into one dedicated server”

“I’m obviously still in the industry working for QuadraNet, but I more or less mean I hold no desire to open and operate my own VPS company at any point going forward.”

mikeyur said: Is the $70 I have in Crissic account credit transferable to QN or refundable?
Crissic’s billing is separate from QuadraNet, we will not be able to transfer the credit at this time nor would it be refundable.
Another Crissic customer asked about his deposited funds. “So what you’re saying is that a customer who invested into Crissic by adding funds to their account are basically going to lose money because they can no longer buy services from Crissic (as you are no longer selling them) and at the same time the customer cannot transfer the funds to be used on the platform which you are replacing it with?”
To which a Crissic representative answered they were talking to this customer already and that “Crissic customers can use existing account credit to renew existing services at Crissic.”.
