I've been on Hypermart for 10 days now and still haven't gotten my domain
transferred to them after MANY hours of trying. Hypermart (part of the
go2net group) is just another free internet business model that's failing.

If you're on welfare and you want to post pictures of your goldfish
on the web, Hypermart might be worth all the effort. But if you
value your time and want some reliability, look elsewhere.

Deadlockers, all of whom care about building and promoting good website,
won't be happy on Hypermart. I just needed a free host for
domain forwarding, and Hypermart is inadequate even for such
a limited purpose.
