    Hello,

    I'm hoping you guys can help me - my site and domain have been under attack for almost 2 months. I was initially with namecheap as a registrar, but they were spammed with abuse complaints and suspended my domain. When I got back up and running with internetbs I was barraged with a huge DDOS which kept the site offline until I setup cloudflare and changed my name servers and IP, but then the attacker went for an absuse complaint on internetbs and I am again dead in the water.

    I tried prq.se on recommendation from other threads here, and although they said registration and protection form abuse would be no trouble, when I initiated the transfer (4 days ago) the dropped all contact with me, and have not replied to my tickets. Unreliability doesn't sit well with me, so i'm back to square one.

    Can anyone suggest a new domain registrar that will not reply to malicious abuse complaints, or not list an abuse contact in the whois? Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Based on the poor information you are providing. I say poor because you are telling us, what you want us to know, I don't think you telling us the whole story. It seems you are spamming hard, and they are tired of you.

    Have you tried using private registration?
    What about stop spamming?

    Its not spam - it's content (see my user name for a clue - the exact words appears to be filtered on this forum).. What I offer is perfectly legal in my country, just not all countries ;)

    The attack was for ransom money - we refused to pay it and they amplified.

    We have never used the domain for spam. internetbs offered private registration, but as it listed the abuse email, and the attacker spammed it with complaints, and apparently what we sell is not legal in the bahamas they suspended the domain.

    So i'm looking for someting outside of Europe and the Americas, that does not respond to abuse complaints - and ideally one that does not list an abuse email, or at least will not pull a domain without a court order. Any help would be apreciated.

    Try easyDNS they are good with spam and any kind of take down request. They will never take down any domain without court order (only use it for domain) + use any East European hosting with it.

    PS if ur are having any kind of illegal stuff then almost all of the service provider play safe any don't contact you too much.:eek::rolleyes:

    Thanks i'll try them next time - they seem to have quite a few dodgy sites! Ended up with a reseller for publicdomainregistry - fingers crossed, they too host a lot of similar domains and have a good privacy policy listed.

    novel: we're always in biz - site is up now you can contact us as per usual :)
