Hitsniffer domain name and it’s servers has been compromised.
Rebelious partner has control over domain name and it is now forward to a fake homepage which shows a text to defend the person who shutdown servers and shutdown Hitsniffer.
This plugin now serve as a memorial and soon to be deleted.
Those who look for similiar services, they can use Hitsteps, GoSquared, AWStats or Zopim.
Hit Sniffer was charging me $22.99 per month and when I noticed that their stats were incorrect, I received an email from this tool named Peter which stated:
“We offer a comprehensive suite of website analytics tools and I do not understand why you cannot comprehend how to use them.”
When I said fix the problem or else I’ll cancel and write negative reviews, Peter wrote:
“Threats do not work with us. I am genuinely sorry that you have not liked the service that we provide and I have to state that you are one of the few that do not.”
Don’t pay them a cent.
