    So I get a email from one of my johns that got ewhored thru my automated means saying "I cannot go to the site you directed me to what do i do!?!?"

    I go to the site, thinking hes just a moron, but wanted to check. "Forbidden"
    "Wtf" i say to myself...

    I check the email associated with the account. And see this......

    Mind you there's nothing on any of my 150 domains i have with them that in any way indicates kiddie pron.

    So now what do i do? I have 25 hosted sites shut down right now, AND 150 domains that i use as redirects that are just going to go dead or ? And what about the money i paid them for the year of hosting on all $150?

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This was their bs email

    dude 1and1 is the worst company in the world to deal with. If you forget about a domain and don't want to renew it they say you didn't cancel and sell your debt to debt collectors who then harass you until you pay them.

    Why would you not make sure they allowed porn before you invested so much with them?

    Well that's shot down but get that data off of there. I don't think they use a real WHM/Cpanel so you can't do a direct transfer to a new server. I remember working on a client's site hosted with 1&1 - I worked on it for about a month and said we're moving this shit or I quit. I don't know how anyone deals with those idiots and their poor hosting. I call it noob hosting.

    Well in all fairness and honesty, it IS noob hosting im sure.
    Which is why i used it when i first started out years ago, and then i just kinda kept on going and going and going, never had a problem until now.

    I'm not hugely internet savvy, I am a pimp turned ewhore and kinda learned as i went, not the other way around you know?

    Anyways as far as what to do now, i dont even really know what to do.

    Keep all the domains i use as redirects, or some of them?
    And i have no idea how that works.

    Just a big mess. I,m sure ill figure it out. Thanks for all the feedback. Just another calamity filled day, seems to be happening more and more lately, but that's just a personal problem i guess :(

    oh and by the way, its not against their tos to have nude pics and stuff like that, they said that its against their tos to have kiddie porn or girls that are made to appear underage even if they aren't, which i did neither of.

    I second that 1&1 are absolute a$$es to deal with. They are very sensitive to spam etc and will shut your account down in a millisecond.

    I am currently setting up an awsome hosting company and domain registrar for you guys with domains the same price as go-daddy and hosting that wont leave you awake at night.

    You shouldnt be subject to the whims of a lame two-bit webmaster who is having a bad day because his ugly ass wife wouldnt sleep with him last night.

    Stop argue about this now man.

    You have 14 days on you to make backup and take your pick and pack and move to another hosting.

    You ain´t have time to be logged in on BHW and start threads like this ;)

    Hehe!

    Yeah it wasn't so much arguing, as much as just venting. I talked to their "security team" and there is no chance for redemption on their part. Took me about 3 hours with my gf writing shit down like a secretary to figure out the entire little "map" of how everything leads where and to what and where everything i need to fix is going to go :(

    Cause its redirects, and emails, as well as the websites you know, bastards. I have about 300 different emails from yahoo's to gmails, to 1an1 to hostgator accounts that all forward to a catchall in my account, sorting thru that's a pain in itself

    11 days left...

    Anyways, in a situation like this, gotta do triage first to fix shit to where your still earning. Which, is now done. Now time to find another host. I'm thinking godaddy, and that I'll just use them for the domains only, not do anything else but use those domains as redirects.

    You really got to seperate shit even more than i thought, especially nowadays. Cause if you put all your eggs in one basket or place chances are that eventually all your treasure will be stolen, even if your not using it for "abusive" purposes.
