    host name justhost did not have a problem for 4 years with multiple xrumer blasts/amr/senuke and scrapebox.....

    I used gsa and only gsa an one of the testing domains for ~2months hosting got suspanded today for Spamhus Blacklist. They want me to purchase dedicated IP before renabling my account.........

    should I change hosting or just buy dedicated ip for $20 per year....?

    now we call all blast eathoder out hosting accounts and serps SEO is geting nice..

    My GSA only had 2735 submitted during that period of time.....

    All I can tell you at this point that from my experience gsa should be used to tiers not directly like I used for testing.

    Never heard of this before. Interested in seeing if anyone else has had this happen to them.

    Proxies do not matter as the computer running gsa does not have the same IP as the webhost. Proxies only protect you from your internet provider complains.

    it looks like the op used GSA links directly to the website instead of tier 1 or tier 2

    So, you didn't use proxies.

    The computer running GSA did not have the same IP as the webhost.. So how did your hosting provider get you in trouble if it wasn't even part of the equation?
    And, among other things: protect you from spam accusations, and footprint tracking, and spread out pings to any server so a hosting provider doesn't get upset.

    Did you run 999 threads?

    I used vpn (not vps) Not sure if you know the difference but essantialy vpn protects ip more secure than proxies.



    spamhause blacklisted IP based on the domain name (Domain name to IP lookup)



    Nope only 60 and had 2736 submitted in the project

    Oh, I know about VPN, in fact I even know not to use JustHost, and I haven't gotten my VPS blacklisted running GSA at 500 threads all day, every day.

    VPN doesn't protect anything more, especially considering there is a money trail. Do you know how diverse the IP selection the VPN cycles through is? I use IPs that I have no connection to, or at least on paper there is none.

    If the IP is blacklisted based on the domain name, and you don't have a dedicated IP, the host was slammed for spam and are passing the blame along.

    Those numbers aren't enough to warrant a blacklist. They're almost not even enough to be worth getting GSA instead of renewing the trial over and over.

    Correct I do not have dedicated IP. It seems like ill be geting one as I have no other choice if I want my account reactivated.

    As for gsa my number are low indeed as I was going for related quality sites over quantity to test it out.

    It does seem strange that heavy xrumer blast never gived me any problem and gsa did.. Maybe spamhause stepped their game up?

    You just hit a spam trap run by spam haus. GSA has an automatic use/scan for proxies settings (did you use it?). Your domain was black listed and SpamHaus went to your host with complaints it's that simple. Anyways, you're better off moving to bullet proof hosting. Though, given that your domain is likely black listed you're prob. better off changing domain names. You might also want to move to a registrar like internet.bs <-- they generally don't shut you down for spam complaints.

    How does your host know that you built those links. Couldn't anyone have done it to your domain?

    That was the first question I asked response bellow. Although response talks about emails it was comment/forum spam...

    Unfortunately we cannot be certain who sent the emails but the result is the same and we cannot allow one account to cause issues for the hundreds of other users on the shared hosting server.

    I have never heard of something like this. If it isn't too much of a pain I would go ahead and change hosts. Hosts should realize that incoming links can't be controlled and if they suspend your hosting that quickly it is bound to happen again. Don't purchase another ip and cut your losses now if you can. That company just got some negative rep in my books :p.

    I agree but I paid for the dedicated IP for another 2 years(rest of my contract) I learned my lesson not to comment/forum spam directly..... or else spamhause can send your hosting company something like this [​IMG] [​IMG]"blackhat seo spammer hosting @" google images did not find anything so maybe its a new thing.

    Hey on the bright side I will know if rank improves based on dedicated ip:)

    Yup. I msut have spammed a forum so hard with GSA that it complained to NameCheap and got my site pulled down.

    I've also have been kicked twice from HMA and StrongVPN. Reason was for spamming forums in all cases. I don't submit to these sites at all now and I'm fine so far.

    Interest thread. I never knew you can get into that much trouble for commenting and spamming on forums. I never even seen people experience this with Xrumer (king of forums) or Scrapebox (commenting).. just why GSA gets this? Just like what another user said above, did Spamhaus step their game up or something?

    Also, are we not suppose to build links directly to money site with GSA? I dont think it really matters much right, if we go for quality links only (low OBL, high PR etc.)
