Envision-Host shut down… again!

Below is a letter that Nerd Buster received from an Anonymous source.

Artur Minacov, the owner of has closed down his company with an obvious lie, stating he is "tired of everything hosting related." He doesn't have what it takes to run a successful game server company and he is quite easily the biggest scam artist on the game server market.

He stated in his business closure letter that he is "tired of everything hosting related", when he is doing this to make another company called, Deposit Servers. He does a poor job at hiding his upcoming projects. You can view the STEAM group page at

At the time of writing, even his STEAM avatar is a graphic for his upcoming project. He is going from one scam to the next. Here is a small rundown on his previous hosting endeavors:

  • Envision-Host 2010-2011
  • Optimum-Gaming 2011-2011
  • Fatality Servers 2011-2011
  • Envision-Host 2011-present
  • Deposit Servers (upcoming?)

He started Envision Host, then went to another host, they had management issues so he went to another name and yet again had money hungry thieves inside his management and he went back to Envision-Host with absolutely no idea how to run a game server company.

In the past, he has criticized End of Reality's game servers for their bad quality and terrible support. He has actually had attacks against his company (by whom is unknown) for this defamation of End of Reality. He's not a bright individual and I hope everybody stays away from this scammer unless you want to lose money.

Thank you for reading,

Since the writing of this letter, Envision-Host has revised their business closure letter to be less personal and to leave the door open for a possible return in the future. Perhaps as Deposit Servers? See the business closure letter quoted below.

To all our users, partners and staff,

It is with regret we must inform you that Envision Hosting is going out of business for an undetermined time due to increased competition from other hosting providers, meaning we could no longer be able to remain competitive on price, yet remain a viable business at the same time. However, we do intend to honor all of the existing orders which have been placed over the past month. Game Servers & Web Hosting will remain active until December 11th, 2011, with no possibility of a refund, as specified in the Terms & Conditions accepted when purchasing. If you are subscribed via PayPal, it is your responsibility to make sure to cancel your subscription, to avoid future charges.

On behalf of Envision Hosting, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued loyalty in choosing us as your preferred hosting provider for the past two years. Without your support, our success would not have been possible but under the current global business climate, we have been left with no option but to close down after December 11th, 2011.

Special thanks to and for their suggestions and helpful feedback.

Please note that starting on November 18th, our support will be closed.

Thank you once again for the loyal and continuous support you have shown us over these years.

  1. It is true that Artur did start a company called “Deposit Servers” which he claims that it is under construction. He has been posting about his new business and what he offers on GSPRating.

    Here is the article

  2. I remember when they tried to tell me about their web design and how “awesome” they were at it.. too bad they had to edit the footer of a template from themeforest.

    That company was always crap, and always tried to act as if they were “the shit”.
