One reason that turned me off on Lunarpages was thier allowance of adult content. I also searched and found several referances to thier mail servers being blamed and blocked for porn spam.
Yes, thier servers seem to be very fast and reliable from what I've seen but I'm not so sure I trust living in a neighborhood with porn vendors.
Will my page view responses suffer from the mass trafic of a porn site?
Will a vigilanti DOS attack knock me off the air too?
Will my mail get blocked because someone using the same mail host was naughty?
These are questions that concern me.
And these are the issues that prevented me from choosing them as a host.
Not in any way Lunarpages have been the cause of any email being blocked. It is a LIE. Our previous bandwidht provider Cogent, is to blame on that.
As Lunarpages was included in an ip range of a current Cogent customer, spews blocked us as well.
We have switched away from Cogent and are no longer affiliated with them at all. In fact, we switched away from them last year. And there have been no issues of mail being blocked since.
We now use multihomed bandwidth from a large number of providers. Including NTT/Verio, Genuity and Global Crossing.
We do not allow our users to send out spam / bulk email. And we do not allow any type of adult hosting that would generate the kind of traffic you are worried about. All adult sites are screened.
