Why did Computer Hope change names?

If you were using our service before November 1998, you were probably part of the big name change. Unfortunately, another company was apparently using our old name and demanded the removal of our website. Instead of just dropping everything and calling it quits (which was considered); we decided to change our name, have it trademarked, redesigned, and add several hundred additional pages of information. After several months of work, in early November 1998 we posted our new website under the domain http://www.computerhope.com, continuing the legacy of free support.

All pages originally on the old domain were automatically forwarded to the new domain for an additional 2 months to help prevent any confusion.

What was the name?

Since the company filed an trademark infringement against us, it's probably for the best that we never say or use it again.
