    I have several websites in hacking niches, hosted by a popular hosting company. Now regarding my website that gave me the greatest income, I got the e-mail

    "... come to our attention that your website is promoting or encouraging hacking accounts. ..... we request that you remove the content listed below.... we request that this content is removed within 24 hours of this notice ... please reply back"
    I didnt see the mail and didnt reply back and they have banned my domain. Its just GONE and nowhere to be found anymore on my account.

    I want to contact them, but I have several other websites which promote ingame hacking/cheating. Which makes me afraid that they will review my other sites too...

    What is the best course of action

    Change your hosting now. You are not getting any help from them now.

    I have websites that give tutorials on how to grow things some people don't like. I've had this problem many times. back up and restore to a new server, that's all you can do. IME it's best to learn how to manage a server, and go with unmanaged services. I haven't been bothered with this kind of stuff in a long time since I got an unmanaged server.

    What provider is that? Move your websites to another host.

    I'm sorry I didnt specify it good enough

    My DOMAIN is banned (http*//etcetc). I bought my domains from a big international domain company (cause they offer whois protection for my country), and I host my sites by a company from my own country (for seo purposes).

    So I really need to contact the big international domain company about it, I'm just scared they will review my other domains.

    I cannot reregister with a other domain provider, it just says that the domain is already taken.

    should I contact my domain provider, or will this be too risky? (seeing my problem in my openingspost)

    Most probably they just removed the domain from your hosting account. If the files and databases are still there, get an offshore hosting and move it over there and change the DNS on your big international domain company's domain account.

    When you contact your domain provider; you are asking for a real human being to intervene into the situation.

    There is a high chance that once someone is looking at your account, they will see the other domain names and possibly be in a bad mood and cause you further trouble.

    Depending on how many questionable domains you have, you can always switch domain providers on your other websites and then contact them. There are domain providers that offer offshore domain registrations that don't respond to any takedown notices or dmcas etc. But they are expensive, around $50/year.

    If you do contact them, you may be able to get your domain back...since you technically paid for it. Just say you are sorry, didn't get the email in time and it won't happen again. But then again, you would be running the risk of a real human looking at your other websites. I wouldn't contact them unless you first switch the other domains to a different registar, or at least temporarily cloak/redirect your domains when you call them up and until the situation is handled.

    The same situation happened with me when Godaddy seized my domain, and I couldn't do anything because they didn't even reply to the support tickets regarding that matter. So, you just have to wait for the domain to expire + 40 days so that the domain is removed from their system too. There is just no other alternative here, although you can be cautious from next time by using namecheap/namesilo and using an offshore hosting. NEVER EVER USE GODADDY if you're doing something blackhat, they'll just take your domain and might flip it at a higher price, showing you the middle finger.

    Home Page:
    Contact them, tell them the stoty from the OP post, tell them that you're sorry, you're going to remove the content etc. If you are lucky, they will return the domain. Transfer out this domain and other domains then to another, more sane registrar. Check the TOS of the registrars prior to transfering.

    It is not guaranteed that they return the domain, but more of ten than not registrar return them.

    Maybe you shouldn't have engaged in hacking related activities in the first place. That said, the only viable solution is to transfer the rest of your domains to a different domain registrar and then contact them explaining why you violated their T&Cs to see if you can get them to release it to you.
