    Default Yahoo, welcome to the SCUMbag list

    Ok... I keep getting complaints about "pop-ups" on my site for this stupid ass mini-spy camera. I know that I'm not serving any pops on my site... NONE... it's my policy... Yet, when I look through my site, I'll be damned if they aren't there.

    I host with Yahoo, and getting them to answer an email is like trying to get an audience with the Pope.

    So I run LavaSoft & SpyBot to clean my computer, open my browser in Yahoo, go to my site, and BAM... POP-UP. I run LavaSoft & SpyBot again and the only thing there is a DataMiner Cookie.

    What the hell... Is there anyway to stop YAHOO and there Preditory Advertising... short of getting a new host?

    Default Pop up

    I visited your site and sure enough, Web cam pop up. I currently use Godaddy hosting. They have a great service and 24/7 customer service via phone or email. Justin.

    Integrity I visited your site and didnt get a webcam pop up - which means either two things - one you sorted it or two their geo targetting doesnt include the UK.

    Either way I would be inclined to switch host - if my host put popups on my site I would be seriously p*ssed

    Pam,

    Rest assured, I AM seriously pissed. The only reason I haven't exploded into a murderous rage is that the pop's are not gambling related... but I'm sure that's next.


    Justin,

    Thanks for the heads up on Godaddy. I need a host who I can pick-up the phone and call. My problem is I'm not good at code, and Yahoo Pagebuilder enabled me to learn a lot and do a lot I wouldn't have been able to otherwise. I guess it's time I grow-up! :LOL:

    Yep.. I just got the free ninja scanning camera mount addy
    when visiting your site. If you pay for hosting through them,
    then they need to provide you with a refund. It's ridiculous.
    When gambling online, make sure to look
    for the best casino gambling bonuses.

    Might I suggest http://www.ez-web-hosting.com
    For the money, they offer the best service and support.
    No advertising pop-ups, and the up time is at least 99.9%.
    I have used them since I first started my site and would not even consider changing.
    They are great!

    It's not the quantity of work you do, but the quality of the work you do, that makes you stand out in a crowd.

    I changed host about a month ago and couldn't be happier. I have used godaddy, avahost, ect, ect and my new host is by far the best (xhttp://www.v7inc.com). The owner also runs a large seo forum and has I thread dedicated to his hosting site. The service has been great, instant, and excellent. I have also noticed that my site uploads quite a bit faster with there service. Bottom line best host ever but not the cheapest. I think I am paying $20 or $29 a month, can't remember but it is well worth it. Also they have a great cpanel.
