    Question Do you have gambling affiliate sites hosted in the United States and are you worried?

    Within the last 24 hours one of our members reported that a web hosting company based in the United States he has used to host 50 websites made a decision to cease hosting his gambling-related information portal sites. You can see the details in the following thread: 1 US HOSTING COMPANY - shutting down gambling sites.

    So, for this week's poll I thought it I would ask members if they currently have sites hosted on servers located in the United States? And, if you do, whether or not you are concerned about the same thing happening to you.

    Well I am using Hostrocket, an US host based in NJ and I have just sent them a ticket, after I had read the post. Apparently they've heard nothing of that and so far everything is normal. For those talking about Hostgator, I believe I read their TOS 2 months ago and it did say gambling related material no allowed.

    Even if I have to switch hosts, I don't see why I should be worried.

    Please don't start contacting your hosting company, if you let the cat out of the bag, one of them may go to the hosting forums and they will have the same discussion like we have today and guess what is going to happen????

    I have my domains in hostgator but didn't receive any notice until now.I decide to not contact them and wait to see what happens. Anyway I already have a plan in the case I have to change hosting.
