    * How i can report hosting company that spread trojans

    While i was surfing the internet i found this page:
    video<<>>tubed.slemhost.com/Video22.html
    attempt to install a fake flash-player-plugin.exe that's already a trojan/spyware then spread it in websites and facebook pages.
    I tried many times to message the hosting company slemhost.com about this but they didn't take any action till now.
    So where i can complain about this company?

    The issue could be related to a script located on another sub domain. it maybe either of the following.

    1, Offers Free Subdomains to clients ?
    2, They added a test script on that subdomain and it has been exploited

    How ever you should report it.

    videotubed.slemhost.com is just a free account provided by slemhost.com so any account will by xxxxxx.slemhost.com as i said that i tried many times to message them but they didn't take any action, may be the admin was careless and wouldn't read any message or may be this virus belong to the hosting company in the 3 cases i should report, souldn't I?

    If you don't see a resolution, you can report it to the datacenter. They may pull the box if it doesn't get cleaned up promptly.

    If you keep having issues, just escalate it up the food chain until you get to a responsible party.

    This is very tricky,

    Slemhost.com is using main-hosting.com

    main-hosting.com is part of youhosting.com (Free + premium provider)

    youhosting.com are hosted by hostinger.com

    It's a bit of a complicated situation here.

    Main-hosting has a bad record for spam: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/m...nt=warn-viewsc

    Youhosting on the other hand has a good record: https://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/youhosting.com

    So I'd contact Hostinger.com if I was OP, as they are the main holder of the company.

    I'd follow @CW Mike's suggestion as contacting the main host is always the better choice.

    We sometimes get abuse complaints from upstream (bandwidth) providers so you could try contacting them.

    They use Qwest, Charter so you can contact them.

    Slemhost uses the Immedion data center in South Carolina and you can contact them directly too:

    http://www.immedion.com/

    You need to go above the host's head and let one of their providers lean on them as the host can just ignore you.
