FortuneHost has a very strict & comprehensive accounts verification process. All new sign-ups are put through this very stringent mechanism. Our verification department personnel would be personally calling up customers who have signed-up for hosting services & cross-verify all the information submitted during purchase of the hosting service. Accounts are then processed & forwarded for hosting once the genuinity of the signup is established. Under no circumstances would accounts be setup without having been verified. FortuneHost would not be responsible for delayed account setups in cases where customers have not responded to verification phone calls. Incomplete, incorrect or questionable signup information can result in an account being suspended or terminated or NOT being activated. Some accounts may be placed on hold for up to 72 hours, pending review of information received.
