    Because I use many companies to host my PBNs, I noticed just yesterday that my sites hosted on 02hosting.com were hacked since August!

    I've noticed it because before visiting these sites an advertisement page will pop-up before sites was loaded, and it was not made by me. Then I checked my sites files and found several strange PHP files there modified in August 2016.

    I immediately made support ticket with high priority that my sites are hacked and still GOT NO REPLY from them and it's been more then 24hours until now.

    Now I've transferred those sites to other hosting company and will never use 02 Hosting again. So unprofessional and embarrassing experience with them.
    I recommend everyone to stay away.

    Regards,
    Sizus

    what is your site built on. Most host will not clean your files if your site is hacked or if they do they will charge you a fee. If your site is word press then it could have just as easily been hacked on any host. I don't know what there set up is or what scans they do.

    But I am not sure of any host that will notify you if a site file has changed as they have no way of knowing if you made the change or someone else made the change.

    Now on the not responding to the support ticket now that is on them. They should have responded
