    So I accidentally added a competitors site to my hosting account and it took the site off line?

    It really was an honest mistake.. The domains are very similar and I just typed in the wrong one after being awake all night.

    This should not have happened right? Now way it could happen right?

    adding your competitors site to your hosting would do nothing.

    o.k.

    None the less it happened. I'll try it again on another of his domains.. wait what if he hosts at the same place and that is the issue?

    I think it is just a coincidence.

    Of course that's not the reason.. The reason why your competitors site has been went offline because your IP address has been listed banned from his Visitors BANNED List.. of course you can't browse the site and it's always offline if your Ip address has been listed in his banned list.

    He banned your Ip because he was observe your activity for his site.

    lol it says it is down for everyone!

    I tried this again and it worked again.. I went to try it on another of his urls (they all interlink and are same general niche so easy to figure out) but now my hosting company is doing a server move so I can not add domains until they finish..

    I swear to you guys I am not making this up and I did not do this on purpose.
