    Kind of a stupid question but maybe you can clarify me this. I'd like to make a website to provide adult content, there wouldn't be any adult content on the hosting itself, but there will be links to download the adult content. Also there will be adult images on the website, but all of them will be censored.

    Is it possible?

    Best regards!

    [h=4]Shared and Reseller Accounts[/h] The following are not acceptable on HostGator shared servers:
