    My bluehost account deactivated.

    Should I go for another company for my sites or will that get banned too once those who reported me sees that my sites are still up?

    they are getting too many complaints / reports.

    all i did was put my site on number 1 in google.
    and make $200 a day.

    i used a number of backlink services here.
    i used senuke, xrumer, amr, seolr, ms, etc.
    also bought some blast services for xrumer, forum profile.

    and i have i have 10 scrapebox running 24/7.

    my adsense is banned too.

    Too bad!!! You may use offshore hosting. Though may be expensive but still worth it.

    Bluehost banned you simply because you used too many of their resources, that is all. They will give you reasons such as "too many complaints, spam, dmca complaint" or anything else their POS abuse team wants to call it in the end it is because when they periodically audit their servers for usage they look for sites using too many resources even though they say its unlimited its just to dupe people into paying for their servers. When these "HEAVY" user accounts are found their admins tell the abuse team to disable the account.

    Get your Account Unsuspended...
    Try to Get your Backup...
    Then Find a New Host.

    Hosts like this should have stuff in space limit your resoruces rather than banning you.
    Its a surprise how they can still stay in business with such business practices.

    I heard the same complaints on other forums. The best thing you can do is try to get your backup if you already don't have and go for a new and reliable web host. Good luck

    They stay in biz because 95% of all websites get no traffic and use no resources.

    I offer business hosting to local companies and do exactly the same thing. I know these websites are not going to use any resources so I offer the hosting for cheap. Thing is I don't tell them everything is unlimited so my ethics are intact.

    I tell them if your account starts using more then 3 or 4 gig per month then that means one of two things. You are having lots of success with your web site and you can darn well afford to pay me more or you are doing stuff you should not be doing with that web site and you are going to get dumped off my system.

    Brake the rules and suffer the consequences. These accounts are not intended for anything other then low traffic little local sites. No lies, no harm no foul.

    If you are making $$ then step up to a vps or a small dedicated server.

    As for adsense getting banned welcome to life. This forum is called black hat? right? adsense is not for blackhat type stuff. You need to keep things semi clean to keep an ad sense account. Plenty of other ways to make a buck then adsense so look around.

    Remember, places like bluehost make bank by loading tons of low usage sites on a server. If your site is not low usage then these places such as bluehost and hostgator are not for you.

    Welcome to lesson #1 for making $$ online using blackhat techniques.

    Now go out with your new found knowledge and do it better next time.
