    Hey guys,

    I received an email today from hostgator informing me that they had complains about me spamming other websites. They said next time they would delete my account.

    I spam forums using software.

    Have you ever had this problem?
    If so, is there any other web hosting company that doesn't care about spamming?

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    No spamming is a general thing for most web host.. especially HG.

    Maybe get your own server and setup your own DNS.. but then they can still find you.

    I dunno.. don't spam from your webhost maybe use proxies instead.

    When spamming you need to set it up like a link wheel.

    For Example:

    site 1 --> \
    site 2 --> ---> Front Site --> Destination
    site 3 --> /

    Of course taking regular precautions such as using proxies, virtual credit cards, fake information, etc. Apply still.

    ... Oh, and don't forget to backup data regularly. That way is one web host goes down you only need to re-route the dns to your secondary server.

    Thanks a lot for your answers guys.

    Yes I always use proxies. Actually I outsource a lot of my spamming work so I argued with HG that I never spammed which is true!

    But has anyone heard about a hosting company that doesn't really care if they receive spam complains?

    Dont Spam would be any easy solution. if you do set up a proxy so its not backtracked to your site. not many webhosts will tolerate it for long.

    Proxy is probably the best bet. Or just don't spam!

    This is the way to do it. I worked for a company that sent out over 1M emails a month. All double opt-in. We always had to monitor our domains. The main company domain was NEVER put in the emails for this reason. Someone forgets the opted-in or decides it is easier to hit the SPAM button than opt-out.

    From the diagram above, make the sites 1, 2, etc forward to the front site which eventually moves them the destination. If one of the front sites gets blacklisted, stop using it. Sell it on DP. You can use free, garbage host for front sites.
