    On all of these blackhat forums people seem to use hostgator. That's the ticket-create a hosting company like hostgator. They must make a fortune selling hosting for spammers.

    Not exactly.. Better off creating hosting dedicated around protection instead of another run of the mill shit host stepping into competitive pricing.

    "blackhat forums people seem to use hostgator"
    - "fortune selling hosting for spammers"


    What I was trying to state was that if you have nothing much to offer, then you are just that, "nothing much".. People and myself use hostgator cause I/they have had good success with them such as reliability. Their more of a household brand than anything with good services/upkeep in my mind.. Clearly not a haven as the op thinks they are..

    Good protection and upkeep goes a long way. Sure the market is competitive and I didn't say it was pointless. Have fun hosting dedicated at targetting spammers from you're very "big computer"..

    This is not true, hostgator are hardly pro spammers. Yes host companies make millions but it is so competitive that you need a unique angle to survive and prosper in that field.

    Cool,

    Just understand how to deal with juristic issues and security societies, may be like FBI (Scammers activities, terrorist problems... etc), things become harder last months with hosting companies or business companies ...

    Hostgator will remove you in seconds if they think your spamming.
