    Webhostingpad is horrible. They suspended my entire hosting server, so like 30 other add on domains, because of one guy who said I copied his website. He didnt have any copyright for his work, so I could give a flying fuck if I really did or not, but thats besides the point here as he doesnt have any copyright to his work.


    Now they sent me the exact message he sent to them, and the idiot told them his entire address and name, heheh, he tries to keep this a secret on his website as the site is a bit shady to begin with.

    Anyways, what should I do? I was thinking to just get a proxy by domain and proxify that site, and switch to hostgator, but I need to transfer all my sql databases as well, and I cant login to my cpanel on my suspended account.

    Im about to file a chargeback and get those fucks at webhostingpad what they deserve, also will make a scam and rip off and what not site to rank for those keywords so they come begging back because the review I will make of them will be sooooo bad.. oooohh cant wait...


    But the problem is, how do I get my files now? I have a backup but its a few days old and I dont have my sql databases backed up...

    Contact Webhostingpad's support and ask them for your full backup. I think it's your only solution to get your backups.
    Good luck!

    What about sql databases? Each wordpress has its own right?

    actually, if its his origional work, then it is automatically protected by copywrite laws.

    but, if i were you, i would either ask them for a backup of your stuff or see if you can just copy everything with some ftp program.

    also, you might be able to just make a new sql database for it on hostgator. but im not 100% sure.

    Yes but how can one prove it is your original work if you do not copyright it? Its the internet, anyone can get anything and claim it as their own. The way I see it, whos to say he didn't copy me?

    He has to have a copyright with the law for it to be substantial in a lawsuit or hold any kind of weight in the court of law.

    You have yourself to thank. Don't keep all of your eggs in one basket. And if you are going to have risky content, put some effort into researching your hosting options. C'mon. Forget revenge. Take it as a lesson, and apply it moving forward.

    It depends how you confiured your wordpress blogs in the first installation. You can have many blogs on the same database if you change the default prefix for wordpress tables "wp_"
    If you let it to default I think you made every blog on separated database.

    Yes I left it default...

    all that I changed was my database name field.. my user name and password is all the same..

    so that means all i have to do to transfer is upload the same database and just change the config file?

    0o0o0oo0 seems easy enough.. very tempting to just switch hosts to hostgator..



    LESSON LEARNED: use domains by proxy!!

    They have to send you the backups, you can sue them if they don't handle it over.

    Depending on your content, you should switch to offshore hosting.
