    I just went with these guys for my mailing program through a recommendation from a well-educated source that I trust. It's my understanding that they are blackhat but they are also based in the United States so I don't want the government pushing them around for spam complaints.

    The domain the emails will be originating from however is anonymous, private and offshore, and it is pointed at the host. So does this mean no one will be able to tell who is hosting it anyway? :cool:

    Thoughts? Am I safe?

    Very solid for the past 8 -10 months. A tad shaky at the beginning but I have had nothing but praise for their customer service lately. This notion that they are blackhat is a tad silly. If you fuck up they are not going to tolerate your shenanigans Best policy is to ask before you do it. I'm willing to bet they will give you a very realistic answer without any bullshit.

    You can always see who the host is.

    Hostwinds is based on the USA then you will not be safe. They will shutdown your account if you have to many spam complaints. And if you have filled your Hostwinds account with real data, there is no anonymity ;)
