I Got Kicked Off My Web Hosting

So you just got kicked off your web hosting site and now you are looking for a new home. That’s rough. Before you find a new hosting home, you should find out why you were kicked off your original web hosting site.

If you haven’t received an email explaining what you did, then be sure to send one to the site administrator to ask why. You don’t want to make the same mistake twice. In this political war going on before the election, political sites are getting dumped left and right.

If you have a political blog, make sure that you follow all of your web hosting guidelines to the letter. Don’t cross over into grey areas, because if the owner of your hosting company disagrees with your political point of view, he or she can and will kick you off their hosting platform.

Then, you are in a world of hurt, transferring your domain is not always an easy task. If you have hundreds of pages or posts it can take awhile to get all of that data transferred and some of it may not transfer. If you used a template that was supplied from the original hosting service, you may have to have your entire site redesigned. The best thing to do is to follow the rules of your hosting service. If you do happen to get kicked off, find out why and learn from your mistakes.
