    Basically, I host all my shit with GoDaddy, it's who I started off with and so never thought to change my provider.

    The other day, I set-up a blog with the term CITYVILLE in the domain name. This blog wasn't even ranked within the first 10 pages of Google for the search term is was targeting, yet somehow Zynga Inc snipped me out and sent a message to GoDaddy who acted very quickly and shut down my hosting account until I reply.

    On matter of principal, I'd submit a counter infringement notice, but at the end of the day, it'll be me who loses out, so I might as well just suck it and remove it.

    Fucking /rant.

    If anyone can suggest a better hosting provider for around the same price please do, these fuckers are pissing me off.

    If you are setting up such sites, always try to get your domain and hosting from a non-US source.

    You KNOW how most American companies are...they just love to get their way and if they don't they threaten to sue.

    and also make sure to have domain/dns hosting separate from webspace/mail hosting. mostly they will only take down your website and not the domain itself. using that scheme you can just change dns entries and continue all of your actions and other stuff. works perfect for me for years.

    btw: anonymize your whois information for domains - on domain robots you can set all entries on your own - also fake info!
