    hey guys,

    So I just got scrapebox downloaded on my server and I was told Berman hosting has been cloing machines and the license was stolen.

    Has this happened to anyone?

    Did you change providers? I'm thinking about getting POwerUp

    Go for reliable VPS provider such as Hostwinds, Powerup Hosting, etc. This should ensure the security of your licenses.

    I am still with bermanhosting and use a scrapebox license (after having similar initial issues). They told me to use some kind of prep tool and all was well. I use tons of tools on the same box with no issues; this issue arises with how scrapebox handles their licensing and transfers.

    That shouldn't be the case with any host.

    As long as you're using a reputable host, you should be fine and have no Issues.

    Stick with the tried and tested.

    very strange they have image with scrapebox enable with a valid license.

    Also it's not take long for prepare another template in such case. And why get scrapebox installed with a license at first place ?!

    I don't known much of them, but already read such issue on another IM private forum too some months ago.

    Our VPS came with Boot from ISO, so it's Fresh install (we setup it on request).
    When you get a VPS you should look for clean install (template or iso) without anything else than Windows already setup.
    Have preinstalled tools is never good as it's take time to update all preinstalled software.

    On linux it's much easy since you can just copy a file for update a program or script the upgrade.
