    Howdy all, i was a visitor to this forum when at that time i saw some people talking good stuff about this company. I went ahead a rented several servers over time.
    All went well(apart from 1 or 2 minor issues over time) for a long period of time.

    Now, my servers are offline for several days, no one answers although i tried contacting them by all means(phone, email, tickets, social networks).

    Is anyone here experiencing the same problem?
    Thks in advance
     
  2. They probably moved the servers again and forgot to tell the customers. Not the first time it happens.

    My suggestion is to leave them and find another hosting provider. Plenty of options out there.

    If you have the backup, move to another provider.
     
  7. Sharkservers is a joke, they call their hosting was "Offshore" they don't are offshore. Most of their servers are on UK.

    UK Servers aren't offshore, is a big and huge risk hosting something on UK specially when your website is about streaming, warez linking etc.

    People believe that they are safe, but they aren't safe. That is a joke, pure illusion.

    Who have their website hosted in Sharkservers and if the content of your website is warez niche, my friend is better you move on and faster...

    Just a warning, UK is DMCA-Friendly. PIPCU just google it and you will see people being arrested in UK for piracy.

    By the way Getrektmate, do you know any Offshore hosting that ignores DMCA?
     
  9. Sure, check this thread: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/list-of-real-offshore-hostings.1028412/

    In that list you have Hostings marked in Bold "Recommended" that is good for DMCA.

    Looks like the shop is shut, there are quite a few server providers in BHW itself, hope you have a copy of your website

    I understand that sometimes things go wrong and a company goes under, but not notifying your customers is a dick move.

    i know this provider from hf.. i used them in past they are not offhsore.. they was in Bulgaria then UK and now Netherlands probably.. since they are resellers all ISP's are banning them.. this post is real https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/sharkservers-is-dead.1103199/#post-11884110
    if you think i have something against them see here the posts of others used them and the links shared or over google and you will see all talking against them with the most bad worlds.. not safe for using them at all and they are under other name too..
