• Could hosting be banned in case of posting other people's photos?

    • views 1160

    On our city portal (reviews of local businesses), we post photos and logos taken from the sites of other companies (shops, cafes, beauty salons, etc.). Photos are taken from open sources, but could hosting be banned if the owners of the companies complain?

    Usually, for violations of this nature, no one immediately shuts down hosting. Often, in such cases, the user is given some time to resolve this issue (deleting offending materials or using another method that satisfies the rightsholder).
    Yes, it`s possible, when we receive these kind of complaints from our customers, we check it out. If the information is confirmed, then we send the client a notice. If in two days, the client didn`t respond we either delete the file violating copyrights or disconnect the account.
    As a rule, if the hosting provider received a complaint from the rightsholder with a specific link to the photo and the offender doesn`t try to resolve the issue (doesn`t delete the photo and doesn`t appeal the complaint), then the account is banned.
    Yes, if there is a complaint, the site could be blocked. But you can always replace one photo with another (for example, one that is owned by you).
We do our best for you!

Ratings of hosting providers by site tasks
Hosting price

We highly recommend not to purchase the cheapest hosting package. Usually, they come with a row of issues: the server is often down, the hardware is outdated, lousy and slow support, registration and payment errors, etc.

For your convenience, we have created a tool that can help you to choose the right hosting package for you just by answering a few simple questions.

CMS

CMS is a content management system. A lot of hosting providers offer so-called CMS optimized packages. However, this is a marketing trick because most CMSs do not have special software or hosting requirements.

Free trial

Trial period is a period of time, usually from 7 to 30 days, during which you can use the hosting services for free to test them.

Moneyback policy allows the customer to receive a refund for his order within a certain period after the purchase.

OS

OS means the operating system is installed on the server. We recommend to choose Linux hosting unless your website requires another OS.

Other

Bulletproof hosting - it’s a type of service that allows to host almost any type of content, even the restricted one (adult content, warez, spam etc). Bulletproof hosting providers do not remove your content in case someone reports an abuse.

Unlimited hosting - refers to companies that provide packages with unlimited disk space, bandwidth, number of domains, databases or email accounts, etc. This is usually a marketing trick but sometimes you can find something worth a try.

Secure hosting - it’s a type of service when the hosting provider is mostly responsible for the security of the user’s account: updates the software installed on their servers, provides an antivirus and malware scanner, firewalls and basic anti-DDoS protection, etc.

DDoS-protected hosting - companies that provide packages that include anti-DDoS protection. These packages are considerably more expensive than regular ones. Nevertheless, they’re totally worth their price because the company will ensure that your website is secured from cyber attacks.

Technologies

Most websites require MySQL and PHP installed on the server to work correctly. Almost all hosting providers support these technologies.

ASP.NET is a Microsoft web application development platform.

Control panel

The more comfortable the control panel is, the easier will it be for you to change the website and hosting account settings.

Most hosting providers that are in TOP20 in our rating offer user-friendly control panels, such as cPanel, Plesk or DirectAdmin. That’s why we recommend to pay attention to other, more important parameters, while choosing a hosting provider.
