Hosting issues!

Posted by on Oct 1st, 2009, at 4:29 pm in Site Stuff.

Hello everyone, we are in a little bit of a pickle it seems. We need to move hosting again. I know we just moved but it seems like one anti-piracy outfit in particular *cough BREIN* is just emailing the new host as soon as we move with a cease and desist letter that just says scnsrc is an illegal site without going to far into actual details or facts. Anyway the ISP’s shit themselves and basically thats it, you cant do anything. Seems like holland is now a no go for a site like this.

Anyway were having a tuff time coming up with a new hosting. So i’m basically asking you guys do you know of a place where scnsrc can call home? Not in Holland, preferably in Europe, that can handle a site like scnsrc.net. AKA needs to be able to handle DMCA’s etc. It needs to be on a minimum off 100Mbps line, 2GB RAM, quad core processor, 250GB hard drive etc. We only have abut 100 dollars a month to spend on this as we pay for this out of money from our real life jobs and as you all can probably see theirs no advertising and donations are in the little to none range.

Were not a massive site we only have about 15k uniques a day which when compared to others is small but that’s still 15k people coming here regularly and we have established a small but loyal following. We try our best in what we do and now we need a little help in return. So please if you know where we can host send us an email: [email protected].

Much Love,

Shiny, Lee and the scnsrc.net staff

P.S. it needs to be a reputable hosting company, established and trustworthy no “my friend has a friends that has a server in Samoa if you pay me 50 dollars now” offers thanks.

This makes panda sad... :'(

That’s one sad panda…

    how about hopping onto the service used my rlslog or zerosec??? they dont seem to be having the issues..

    anyway the scnsrc site is fully legal in all its right, you dont publish any direct download links nor do you host the files, you just link to other sites and act as a news source.

    last time i checked news is legal… -_-

    rlslog has a shit connection though…. it’s hit or miss if my browser brings back their webpages…. could be their 500k uniques a day at fault. 😉

    Hi, been using this site for a few months and really love it. Id hate to see it go under so when i get paid next week i will start donating, it will only be like $20 a month but its still better than going back to unseeded torrents. ^_^

    you guys are running a great site, take advantage of it, put some “small” ads throughout the site but nothing annoying like popups and videos with sound like rlslog!

  12. 12. LSD Oct 1st, 2009 at 8:25 pm

    you should mail breins host and get them taken down for illegal spam shutdown notices

    its absolutely ridiculous that an email isnt even checked out and the facts gained by any sane person who isnt a web crawling robot looking for release names

    PS save teh panda!

    It’s only natural that this site it illegal. Come one. The staff doesn’t post any links but the visitors do and the staff is responsible for everything on the site, even the comments. They have to delete them if the don’t want to be harrassed and that would make the whole thing rather pointless.
    Go to Hong Kong, the couldn’t care less about copyright infringement, their whole economy is based on ripping off products.

    I suspect the reason these sites have become unpopular with hosts is that they are so much hassle. Someone spoke about the difficulty in accessing that other site which seems to be under continual denial of service attack plus last weekend some hacker infected one of their pop up ads.
    Peeps couldn’t get in if they had pop up blocking on and if they went in with pop ups enabled they got hit with virtumonde and antispyware 2010. This is of course the problem with ads, the site pushing the ads out to your server has to be as secure as your own, otherwise these greed heads hack in. The current favourite seems to be via twitter anyone with a live twitter feed on their web site is wide open to attack.
    Hosting a site where alla that stuff is going on would be a real pain in the ass.
    The MPAA etc have no scruples in what they are doing going far outside the law in their desperation to hang on to an outmoded business model, and are not above threatening hosts with insinuations about attacks on the hosting companies other customers’ sites. No one is going to wear all that hassle for a couple hundred bucks a month unless they have to ie they don’t have much other business.
    scnsrc is an invaluable site for most of us and if we care about more than the gimme gimme immediate gratification of downloading we will keep supporting it. This is a tough time because the amerikan govt has been foisting all sorts of restrictions on what sites and users can do (far worse than anything in amerikan law) on other nations and the EU as part of their trade and treaty agreements under GATT.
    The politicians in the other countries usually try and change the law as quietly as they can because they know that most people don’t support the current heavy handed approach to intellectual property let alone a tightening, but they have their ‘friends’ hassling them about access to markets too so turning the bright light of publicity on the underhanded and illegal tricks of the anti-downloading movement is vital, so the pols get to realise that the only reason they have all these ‘friends’ is because people vote for them.
    If they go too far helping their friends they will lose too many votes.
    We just went through this hassle in the country I live in. The situation is currently in hiatus, there is a nasty anti downloading law on the books but no real mechanism to enforce it. The pols won’t enforce the law they pushed through in the middle of the night because it will cost them too much politically, but they won’t change the law either because that would get them offside on their trade deal.
    I suppose they hope that the brainwashing that makes an artificial concept seem concrete can be ramped up to the point everyone accepts the changes, but I can’t see that happening, if anything people are becoming more normalised to the morality of downloading not less.

    Have you tried Nforce? (http://shop.nforce.nl/) They’re dutch and they dont seem to have a lot of trouble hosting sites like these 😛

  22. 22. ineser Oct 2nd, 2009 at 10:44 am

    Try http://www.kimsufi.com, its based in france

  23. 23. AussieFan Oct 2nd, 2009 at 11:19 am

    sorry to hear guys… hope you get backup soon…

    But P.S. Don’t come to Australia, they’ll be all over your ass…

  24. 24. n00bf0rc3 Oct 2nd, 2009 at 12:06 pm

    ecatel > [email protected] = Netherlands
    server.lu = Luxembourg

    they both allow warez

  25. 25. n00bf0rc3 Oct 2nd, 2009 at 12:11 pm

    europe is the ebst choice guys

    going to asia is too far and you’ll get shitty pings

    honestly, go for server.lu

    its quite expensive but worth it. their supprt sucks though but if your gonna handle it yourself then its fine. they have a good cp as well which allows reboots reformat instantly.

    they allow anything, they even advertise stream sites and bitorrents (seedboxes). they are also unmtered and have their own lines, so they get all the DMCA emails

    I currently have 20 servers with them and they are great,

  26. 26. n00bf0rc3 Oct 2nd, 2009 at 12:14 pm

    ecatel is quite expensive as well, email them for a list of their products. there sites are currently down. their servers are bvery good and most of the top warez sites are hosted there.

    Don’t go for kimsufi, they are biased and they’ll kick you off. BIEN can infrig you easier.

  27. 27. Johnny Oct 2nd, 2009 at 12:17 pm

    they rock, but i guess they cost a bit

  28. 28. the above person Oct 2nd, 2009 at 12:18 pm

    If you want to buy from server.lu you can ask me, i dont have to pay any setup fees because i have over 5 servers.

    You can trust me, i run a big seedbox website

    email me for more details.

    Wow, who would have expected Holland of all places to cave to ISP pressure? And why are ISP’s caving to the MPA in Holland is probably the better question. That’s a shame, though I’m hard pressed to imagine how it is that what this site does can be assumed for responsibility in their reason for dropping service. And isn’t what they’re doing to the ISP subject for the charge of duress, coercion etc ? If they can;t level a charge, then any pressure on the ISP can be characterized as unlawful coercion.

    I realize it’s moot, and you’ll have to leave that particular host, I just hope that someone’s lawyer sees this as an opportunity to fight back, because something’s rotten here.
