    Anyone using LunarPages with adult content

    Hey guys, i made a recent post about finding a hosting company that will allow adult content (mostly videos) and I really am leaning towards going with LunarPages but some people say they don't allow it ect ect some people say they do. I've reviewed their Terms of Service and their Acceptaple Use Policy and am a little confused on their exact position.

    Here's some of their language:
    You agree not use your account to or otherwise knowingly or otherwise permit the violation any provision of the Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act (CAN-SPAM ACT) including the following:
    a. False or Misleading Header Information
    b. Deceptive Subject Lines
    c. Failure to provide an opt-out method
    d. Failure to Identify the message as an advertisement
    e. Failure to include a physical Postal Address


    I dont have any problems with this, my question is, will they let me host adult content legally?

    And is anyone here using their as a host for their adult content sites? Thanks guys

    HostGator allows porno. I have asked them about it in the past. (I personally do not host any porno).

    As long as it is legal, you're fine.

    It seems that is talking about email. The best option would be to email them and ask them specifically if you can host adult material on thier servers.

    We can say or speculate anything, it would not hold Lunarpages bound to it.

    Even if someone has managed to host certain content there, it doesn't mean they're necessarily OK with it. It can only mean that they didn't notice what kind of content he hand.

    If you're after a definitive response, you must contact Lunarpages, and keep a record of your conversation with them. If at some point in time they change their mind (or their tech misinterpreted their own policy), you can at least argue your case with them. Not that they must do anything, without a court order.

    Good luck!

    Keep it legal, and you should be fine, as long as you don't abuse your allocated server resources.

    I'm quite sure that they allow adult content so long as it doesn't violate United States law. I agree that you should live chat with them about what your planning on hosting and save the chat transcript for your own records. Best of luck!

    I wouldn't put it past Lunar pages if they created this thread themselves just like they have been exposed doing in the past.

    In fact after reading the OP's posts you can tell that's exactly what this is, i'd report it to the mods but it seems they have a bigger problem on their hands right now

    Ummm no sorry i don't work for LunarPages or have anything to do with them, just trying to get an answer for my web page that i'm building soon before i go ahead and do so and then realize that I can't. Want to see if anyone is using them for this so i know beforehand if i'll be alright. I do plan on talking to them, although i don't even see an e-mail on their site for questions

    yes it seems that there is no e-mail address there... However, why don't u try their forum at http://www.lunarforums.com/ and open a thread there if you are fine with that ? or maybe contact them directly through their toll phone ?

    Who has bigger problems on their hands? The mods of WHT or Lunarpages? (if so; why?)

    I'd look for a host other then Lunar that will host adult stuff with no issues.

    I don't know about LunarPages exactly, however, a lot of famous web hosting companies like WHB, Namecheap, Site Valley and other don't allow to host adult content on their shared servers. They usually ask to upgrade to dedicated servers or suspend accounts.

    Why do you say that? Do you have experience with Lunarpages and/or in this context?

    Famous? ah ah... interesting

    But anywho, why not just have a "follow the law" content policy, aka follow a "common carrier" ruleset?! (This is like the 3rd thread I've mentioned this in here on WHT.)

    Heres their reply to me for anyone thats interested

    http://www.lunarforums.com/lunarpage...-t47212.0.html

    Lunarpages has no restrictions upon content of your website as long as it is legal as defined by California law.

    However, adult sites that require extreme amounts of server resources and bandwidth will be required to upgrade to a dedicated server plan.

    Please thoroughly read our 'Terms of Service', http://www.lunarpages.com/legal.php

    We allow all kinds of adult sites. Free tgp (thumbnail gallery posts), multiple adult pop ups, and free image galleries are allowed only on our dedicated plans. Feel free to be as adult as you can be under the law of California.

    This thread seems to be going downhill fast.
    To the OP: if you have problems understanding the Lunarpages policies, I suggest you get in touch with them and ask. We are not in a position to interpret their policies.

    Good Luck!
