    well, i'm super newbie in IM.. few hours ago I purchased domain in Godaddy and a host in HostGator($0.01) to try blogging(really need money).. After few hours of setting up my blog, HostGator mailed me that they need verification of me, in order to continue with my account setup. They need scanned copy of Photo ID and here's my problem.. i'm only 17 and i don't have valid IDs and my paypal is not verified. how will I fix this?:( thanks..

    Ask the support if they could call you to verify.

    It did happen to me before. What I did is I purchased to other hosting company that doesn't require any verification.

    Who said you can't buy Web hosting at 17 ?? any type of PHOTO ID will work.

    OR

    Tell them clearly that your 17 and would give details of any one from your family members who is 18+.

    Tell them to change the registration name , its ok.
