My account was suspended! Why?
There are many reasons which may force us to suspend a user’s account (we will not do this without contacting you first!). They are: SPAM that is being sent from your account (because of the bugs in scripts), if you use old versions of the scripts, eg Coppermine or WordPress it can attack our servers. If you cannot make an upgrade of your scripts, contact us, and we will do it for you.
I applied for hosting and I haven’t heard from you?
We do not accept all websites. Every website must meet all required criteria – a complete, HQ Fansite. Contact us if you have any additional questions.
