Ok, I use to have a website a while back at a place (I'm not going to name the place because of the problem), well I went back to the site to see who bought it out. (it was free website hosting) and guess what, some pervert nasty b!$% bought it out and every time someone visits my old site they get referred to some disgusting and disturbing content. this is degrading and I'm really ticked, I don't want anybody to get the wrong ideas when they come across this site on google or else were. any ideas?

no i had a free website hosting, and i thought it was still a foumr but i guess i was mistaken, the people who owned it sold it.

and whoever bought it is some sick pervert. i'm just giving a warning so this doesn't happen to anybody else (even tho i don't know what ppl could do to prevent this from happening) but i thought this info could help protect someone else.

I guess it shows that you always need to read the Terms of Service, End User License Agreement or Privacy Policy on these types of sites where you post content. I'm sure you'll find that this site owns anything you post here if you care to look.

your not getting it, the people that just bought it are the one with the objectional content. I'm just concerned that peope that knew my old website link would go there and see the objectional content...

I just want to protect anyone from going there.

I get it. When you uploaded to that site did you read the fine print? I doubt it. You gave them ownership of whatever was put there and then you let it slide. Theres very rarely a free ride even on the internet. For all anyone knows that site was set up to get people to build websites there that they could then use for their own puposes. Might have been the plan all along.

Now do you get it?

Not only that but to protect them from what is on there. I mean the stuff on there is pretty sick, its not only pornographic material but its worst than that, it takes than and combines it with weird a twisted things. Its sad.

One more thing I wanted to point out, its not the main website that is as bad as the subdomain that I use to have. Also the subdomain is redirected to "site a" and in the picture that comes up it is then referring to another site "Site B."

Also i've been doing some research: the place where my old subdomain is redirected to is setup up like this http://sitename.net/pics/nameofpic.jpg But when you aceess http://sitename.net/ nothing shows up, its completely blank, but if you goto http://sitename.net/pics/ it show a list of pics, movies, .swf's and other stuff, which some of it isn't as bad as the thing my site is referred to. (also http://sitename.net/ is referred to as "site a.")
