Topic: Small TOS change
Since the beginning of February we started to notice a higher load all on servers, some instability for MySQL servers, actions taking longer time to execute (stuck on 50%-75% for few hours). Once we started investigation we found that some clients launched a specific software against our severs and created thousandths of client profiles with different resellers, each holding hundreds of accounts (number is increasing every day). On these accounts they launched websites to promote Amazon products.
We believe that these users are using captcha killer services to automatically create new accounts and singup with resellers. In future we plan to send verification SMS messages for all suspicious client registrations. This should guarantee a safer and spam/phishing free service for all youhosting users.
We are now cleaning up all servers and suspending all these spam accounts. After cleanup server load and service stability should back to normal.
Please update your TOS and add this line:
