    Default Help help help!

    I dont know if anyone else experienced this problem but i think this is one of those worst days when you feel that your effort is all lost.
    I receive an e-mail today from YOLA ( my hosting provider ) telling that they dont want to work anymore with me because my websites violate their Terms and Conditions. They do not work anymore with Gambling Websites.

    So i am forced to close the colaboration with them.

    I am so worried because i dont know where to start, how to start, which domain provider to choose and how time need to build again my online presence.

    I will lose all Google Ranking. With my Albanian website i am in top 5 but what will happen now that i need to tansfer domain and build again websites.

    Is wordpress easy to use, can i do that quikly???

    So in long term how much will this change affect my bussines and revenue?


    Thanks alot.

    Hello,

    Can you transfer your sites to another hosting ? If yes, I would recommend England based hosting, for example for my website I use hosting provided by Vidahost, but there are many other companies to choose from. I have no problems with them, also they say on the FAQ, that gambling websites can be hosted freely on their servers.

    I don't think that you will get problems with domain providers, just transfer your domains to namecheap or godaddy or other company(it could be albanian company too, but I am not sure about prices, for example you can transfer you domain to Godaddy for just 2 $, but renewal and privacy will cost much, so I would recommend Namecheap for 8-9 $ you will get 1 year and privacy together). Also many hosting companies will offer you free domain transfer (it depends from offered hosting plans).

    I use Wordpress for my website. I can't say it is very easy for persons, who don't know how it works and want to make wabsite by using it, but you will learn very quickly watching videos on Youtube and reading articles and tutorials.

    Ask questions on forum, many wabmasters will help you. And don't panic !

    Best regards.

    Thank you very much Vardan.

    In fact i was looking for a website where i will make the transfer and also i will have posibility to build my new website. I was looking at some youtube videos about wordpress and honestly it sounds difficult for me to install WAMP then connect with localhost etc etc ( i install WAMP and some files are missing on my pac and it was not installed correctly )

    On Yola i have a site builder and i work directly there so there is any other website offering website builder directy for example does Hostgator or Godaddy offer that.


    With technical matters i am very bad, plus i dont have much free time to spend understanding. I want to start right away.

    I just asked on NameCheap and they do not allow Gambling Sites

    Thanks again

    Before you do anything, make sure you have a backup of your site(s). Backup everything, and if you're not sure how to do that, perhaps the support staff at Yola can generate a backup for you. I use namecheap for some of my sites. I haven't had any problems with them. Wordpress is not difficult, but if you don't know how to set it up, etc, and how to use it, it might be a bit of a problem. I can set up wordpress for you on your new host if you'd like, but you'd need to add the content to it. If worse comes to worse, perhaps you can hire someone from elance to transfer the sites from Yola to the new host.

    Oh thanks sweet bet, this is so kind from you.

    The best part on YOLA was that i can only drag HTML files, and pictures and put txt easily, without beeing worried about codes, i mean it was very easy the sitebuilder, thats why i need somethng similar....

    Regarding Backup Yola told me to take screenshots and copy everything. THis is all what they told me. Better you read their e-mail:
    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Your Yola account and content was brought to our attention for review. This is to notify you that Yola chooses not to be your hosting service provider. Yola chooses to not host online gambling sites. Your Yola account with the login email address ..................will be disabled in 7 days. We are giving you this time to gather your data and transfer your domains away to another registrar of your choosing. The sites have been suspended. Your recent payment has been refunded. You cannot transfer your site/s. However, you can take screenshots of the pages of your site and/or copy and paste text not in the files into a new document on your pc. If you have files in your File Manager that you'd like to download to your PC, here's how to do it: and bla bla bla

    Ps: this is a feeling like you're at someones home whos invited to you then suddenly he says to you GET OUT FROM MY HOUSE....!

    Well, in your case, as sweetbet said, would be better to hire someone for that job. Don't complicate the situation. Search profesionals on Odesk or Elance (someone with good reviews and some quantity jobs realized). I have found albanians too, may be it will be easy for you to comunicate with them in albanian; https://www.elance.com/r/contractors...gration/cry-AL . Also I think they will help you to find the right solution.

    Regards.

    Wow thank you Vardan.

    I am surprised to see Albanian people in that page, you're helping me alot buddy. Ok so if i hire someone there what they exactly do is: Transfer my domain and do the webhosting for me and then?

    Who put the affiliate links, banners etc etc, i should give to them my affiliate account details....( i dont think so )

    Sorry but i am really ignorant in this area.

    God knows how i learn to build websites in YOLA, maybe i was eager to make money through affiliates

    I use Bluevoda website builder for exactly the same reason as you, Kazino Portal - drag and drop, cut and paste, click to, add images etc etc. If you can use Powerpoint, Word, etc..it's fairly easy to get to understand. It might work for you. I've been running gambling related domains on it for about 8 years, never had a problem.

    Domains are at either Godaddy, Moniker, Name. No problems with gambling domains at any, though I would avoid Moniker.

    The problem might be - you need to keep Albanian rankings right. Using Bluevoda means you have to use Vodahost hosting I think (I pay $10 per month)

    Vodahost servers are in Singapore I believe. If your Yola servers are in Albania (or that region) it might have an impact. Don't know. I know you have good Albanian rankings. I don't know if switching server locations will have a negative impact. It may have none.

    Either way, it might be the quickest way to at least get the pages back up if you don't have time to learn Wordpress. Still will be a learning curve though. If you decide to go for it I will do my best to advise.

    Using BV does have some negatives. (No automatic) Responsiveness is an obvious one. But there are other ways round that.

    Wordpress has lots of benefits over it I suspect. Although I have got good rankings at times, I don't know if using WP would have given me better rankings. All down to whether you have time/inclination to learn it.

    Explain them the situation, ask questions, and I quess they will offer what to do. Keep your affiliate account details in secret, it is a confidential information, just for you ! They will need only affiliate links and banner codes which you can provide without any risk.

    It's very bad, that yola don't allow you to make backups. It means that you must build the sites from zero and it is not only site transfer.
    Try to speak with the people from yola again.

    This is of course some great advice.

    You could try to find an Albanian WP expert who would build the site for you and get you up and running. then learn yourself how to add pages/amend/add banners.

    Think you should focus first on just getting the site up somewhere new. Just use your content. Worry about banners/affiliate links later

    Thank you chaumi.

    I dont think YOLA servers are in Albania, i just found Yola online like everything else.

    Now that i was looking i found tsohost.com that allows gambling content. Maybe i see their website builder and if it is easy i will start immediately. They are located in UK ( like Vardan mentioned before )

    I dont know what will happen with google webmaster, i need to reverify my website again, or google will start crawl and index by itself?

    Thanks alot for your help.

    Try not to jump in too quickly. Do as much research as you can. At least try and find some actual sites built using tsohost (or anything you choose) and see how they can look, whether they look to rank OK etc

    Yes sure first of all i need to back up all my data then i will be ready to make the transfer and start building again.

    I just see now that tsohost will make a free domain transfer for me if i buy bussines plan at 12 pounds/month which is actually what i need.

    Hello Kazinoportal,

    "Your Yola account and content was brought to our attention for review."

    for me there is no doubt, that you have been denigrated by a shabby competitor, perhaps a guy who is coming from your country, because ...

    "Yola chooses to not host online gambling sites."

    Really?!

    ===> https://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=d....0.WuUnGJ1uYGo

    Redirections, doorway pages, a lot of crap.

    You have had a website with real content but the account is close to be suspended?

    Real content proof: web.archive.org/web/20141220124520/http://www.kazino-portal.com/

    ---

    If you find a new webhost in the next 5-7 days (Don't wait too long) for your domain (http://www.kazino-portal.com), and I am sure, a lot of members can give you good suggestions for that, then normally your rankings will come back. I have had experiences with a situation like that.

    Thank you very much, i really appreciate your post.

    When this happend in fact i was thinking someone who dont want me to rank is trying to create problems for me.

    I just send to them your link about crap websites using yolasite.com

    I asked them why you want to suspend my account.

    The last e-mail was like, we dont have time to give clarifications to you, just copy your content and move away....

    After one year with them i really feel dissapointed, at least they can inform to me in a friendly way then i could be prepared but not like this, not in this way. My communication with them was correct and serious.

    Thank you all for your support.

    By the way Vidahost send to me e-mail telling that as long as Gambling Content is legal they will do web host for me. Tsohost also accept gambling websites, so i am beetwen this both companies.

    Hello,

    As far as I know, they are the same company. Choose the hosting plan which is the best for you. I mean the price of the package, GBs, bandwidth etc.
    I had no problems with Vida till now and I guess Tso should be the same .

    Regards.

    "we dont have time to give clarifications to you"

    This is the typically arrogant behaviour of some free hosters. They have server uptime sometimes lower than 90% but a big mouth.

    If you look at the blog of Yola's founder and CEO (vinnylingham.com), then you'll ask yourself: "What the hell is this!? I really don't have time for poor sites like that."

    Hah, lol

    I am now really doing that question to my self.

    My god......

    Ok after an e-mail comunication with Vidahost i am still undecided about web hosting because someone from them suggested me working with Wordpress ( like some friends here might suggested to me ) but i am very worried because working with wordpress wants more free time in disposition which i dont have it actually. I asked them if their sitebuilder have minimum SEO requirements so i can put all metadata and i can make daily or weekly posts in a blog ( yola have that ).

    Waiting an answer from them.

    Update: In my e-mail i ask VIdahost customer service about sitebuilder and SEO requirements and their answer was YES but sitebuilder is for novice and starter but you seems to gain a full bussines website with alot of SEO content. I said i need to start to not lose my google rank then in a later time when i will have more free time i will start working with Wordpress.

    Ps. Google Analytics already shows today unique visitors 7 while yesterday i had 70 unique visitors

    Google Webmaster already lost my sitemaps.

    WTF is this...i never imagine this could happen to me.

    I've been using Vidahost for the last 7 years and they are fine with legal gambling sites (I have a couple of very small sites hosted with them). As far as I'm aware the majority of their servers are located in the UK (they built their own data center I believe).

    Having used a lot of hosts over the years they are great for small websites and very helpful, I wouldn't recommend Hostgator or Godaddy over them that's for sure!

    Thank you

    I will work with Vidahost i guess. With legal gambling you mean real content right?? because i dont have any license or something similar. I am like all of us promoting honest gambling content.

    Update of my last Yola e-mail communication. THeir last e-mail ( which sound strange to me ) is:

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    The charge was reversed on the payment method you used to make the payment for the hosting package. Please give this a few more days to process.

    Yola chooses not to host sites only appropriate for those 18 years and older. In many countries, including Albania, children under 18 are not to participate in gambling.

    Yola chooses not to be your hosting service provider. This is Yola's prerogative. Your Yola account will be shut down Feb 20, 2015.

    Regards,

    YOLA Abuse & Compliance Team
    Your Best Teacher is Your Last Mistake!
