Did Root Level Technology just acquire another company?

That stealthy little company down in Planet Texas, Root Level Technology, just acquired another company.  Well, at least they acquired a company that no one has outed yet (that's the process with them --- hide and seek).  Someone tell them I want my prize.

This time is looks to be envioushost.com, a minecraft host, who also offers Cpanel hosting and has recent interest in VPS offers via their subvm.com brand.

What's the proof?  Hosting of the DNS on rootleveltech.com's nameservers.  All other records are RootLevel house brands.

So, who else is receiving purchase offers from Randall and company?

@MannDude, Isn't this that RLT or RTL company you said tried to buy vpsBoard?

Root Level didn't offer you a free flight to sweaty Houston, Texas?

Quit being such a hard sell @XFS_Duke.  Playing hard to get ;)

Posts, they aren't per se worth anything. 

It's the random traffic, eyeballs that such buyers are interested in.  Audience to spam their wares.  Or to at least reduce their advertising costs with.

That's why if you care about your users/members and the community you don't sell out to folks with money and no other interest in the community.  You know, just like the Colocrossing fiasco with Lowendtalk / Lowendbox.

Another company that Root Level hasn't announced in public on their website is....

DRUMROLL

Voicenet.com, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, company.  That deal in January of 2013.   Voicenet  sold web hosting, email hosting and related service to HostAndStore.com, a Root Level Technology company.

The DNS MX record for voicenet.com points to --> 

Non-authoritative answer:
voicenet.com mail exchanger = 10 serv4.rootleveltech.com.

Now I'm curious as to how much our posting is worth
Wasn't asked to sign anything or keep it secret, so $20K + 30% recurring ad-revenue. Original offer was $15K / 25% recurring ad-revenue. Turned them down.

Ads aren't even implemented yet, but will be by this weekend. All spots were reserved in 24 hours, and the majority of the revenue is being reinvested back into the site. Got some cool contests coming up and good prizes. I'm giving back to the community and not selling out.

I'll gladly pitch in money to make sure this site always stays independent.

If I recall correctly, wasn't Webhostingtalk started as a community forum until some hosting company bought it?  Luckily WHT isn't owned by a hosting company any longer.

And, of course we know how Jon Biloh SCREWED all the members of lowendtalk and lowendbox with his covert purchase of the site.  Hopefully, Colocrossing/Velocity sells LET/LEB so this conflict and temptation of being the owner of said sites goes away.

No, we aren't repeating the lessons of those other two sites.

Mucho gracias Mr. Giant Crab!

Valve has done pretty well compared its suitors, hasn't it?
