    AskWebhosting.com new business model

    Anyone else get the email from askwebhosting.co ? It runs you thru a page or 2 of porn offerings and then who knows where. It is loaded with popups also. We have removed our listings.

    All we got was a upgrade notice, no porn filled emails or popups.

    Seen that, but I haven't bothered to click on the links... it's advertising... that's what I have my business partner for.

    I got an upgrade notice email also, and one wasn't even for my company and had all their information in this email.

    That's what I am wondering. I then got another email stating that my password has been changed for security reasons. I never got redirected through any porn popups.
