I note that your website remains live despite Solicitors being the target, who undoubtedly make all sorts of legal threats. I believe you host with one.com, can you confirm because I need to find an understanding webhost.
I had some content posted about my own crap solicitor (and his barrister) on defamation.org.uk
My current hosts (Fasthost.co.uk) told me they had received a Solicitors letter allegeing defamation which was againts their T&C's and asked (nicely) for the website to be suspended, or they threatened to manually suspend it.
I thought it best to comply to show good faith.
As a reseller of their hosting services I do not want to get into a protracted debate on the issue when I can just move the hosting for that one domain elsewhere.
February 2009 Rick Kordowski named two Solicitors on his website of
Gregsons of Liverpool and they complained to Fasthost that I had defamatory
content on my website about them. In the first instance Fasthost wouldn't
tell me who had made the complaint and then made me pay £10 under
the Freedom of Information Acts and then still refused to give me the
information or refund my £10 nor the 18 months of hosting I had
left to run. See: -
is a Dutch based company and you should have no problem with them not
only that they are real cheap.
I appreciate the help and info - fasthosts have done the same to me insofar as they won't state who has made a complaint but insisted the site be taken down.
I'll give one.com a go and let you know how I got on.
