    I registered my domain and hosting with a Target visa giftcard and vpn. The site was flagged in less than 12 hours. Now what? And how can I avoid this happening again? Is it because of the VPN, or the giftcard, or the name? Address is valid.

    If you are not sure of the reason they flagged your site then it is right to talk to customer support regarding the issue. You may as well claim a full refund and switch registrars if it's in their policy to do so.

    STILL have not heard back from them. They said they would contact me within hours about 7 hours ago. :squint:

    The problem is probably the prepaid Visa and the hosting, since prepaid cards often can't be billed for recurring payments. Get a real credit card and all is fine.
