    Just got this notice from hostgator:

    Can I move this site elsewhere to a different hosting where this company can't do anything about it?

    I'm making like around $30-50/day with it.

    How much does offshore hosting cost? This is the only site I need offshore hosting with

    I just looked at Hive Hosting which is offshore and they don't allow sites that violate the DMCA

    Hostgator must have got a threatening letter from someone. In my experience the web hosting companies will comply with these ASAP without really looking into the situation because they don't want to have to defend against a law suit (even if the law suit's basis is complete crap). Jump ship to offshore!

    Hi,

    I received the same some time back due to the fact that my wordpress blog got hacked and the hacker for some unknown reason copied some text from a similar to mine. They complained to my hosting company and they suggested that I take my website down until all the offending text was removed - I would not have minded by the text copied and pasted was rather lame and the owner of the other site should have been glad that it ended up on my website:)

    If you do not want this to happen again as suggested host in a country who does give a damn.
