    Got an e-mail just now from my host saying they got complaints that my sites link to 'warez' content. So its shut down now. Has this happened to anyone? Do I just find another host and move to that one?

    Hi, was your site linking to a "warez" website?

    One thing I have noticed *can* get you into trouble sometimes is referer spam. I had a host contact me because they thought I was linking to a porn website when in fact I had been referer spammed.

    Check your logs and then block any suspect IPs via HTACCESS

    Regards

    Take a look at digitalpoint under hosting to get some feedback about good offshore hosts.

    Only problem with the Offshore hosting over at DP is you need to choose very carefully. I have noticed that a lot of them are there just to promote their hosting, then once they get a few signups, poof - their gone.

    Or, worse yet, you go to sign up to their site, and it has too many errors for you to even believe that they actually had any customers who were able to sign up in the first place.

    Hi, yes you are correct re DigitalPoint but obviosuly check their feedback / itrader etc

    If you go with a newbie with no itrader then you are asking for trouble :)
