Hacker Friendly Web Hosting

I get a lot of questions from people asking me to recommend web hosting companies to them. I have used many different hosting companies and generally, I have had good luck. I plan to put together a list of web hosting companies that I support and who are “hacker-friendly” in their terms of service.

Understand that when I say “hacker-friendly” hosting, I don’t mean that you will be able to do anything illegal, since that is not what hacking is about. What I mean is that the hosting company will allow you to have your freedom of speech and will not be afraid to let you discuss topics that may be borderline dangerous or questionable.

I will include a list of Web Hosting companies that will range from co-location facilities to full administered servers right down to low-end cheap hosting. You will have to determine your own web hosting needs. This is a work in progress and will be ongoing over time.

There simply is a lot of competition in the web hosting arena and a little review and/or recommendation will go a long way.

Mesothelioma

NOTE: This post refers to some testing that I was trying on a different site that is no longer active (nor is my Google Adwords account).

Mesothelioma is an interesting word that I discovered while doing research on Google AdWords for a presentation that I was doing. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by asbestos. There are several money-grubbing lawyers out there looking for these fat cases so that they can hopefully get a class-action lawsuit out of it and hopefully, a big payday.

In the meantime, when I present the possible negative effects that can come from PPC advertising on this subject, I am the bad guy. This is a proof of concept post on my web site to see what those effects might actually be. If there is no danger, then this is all well and good. But as I pointed out in my presentation the use of Mesothelioma in a site that really isn’t about Mesothelioma or asbestos cancer could be worthless.

So this will be an interesting test of my theory to see what kind of results I get. This is a perfectly valid post and a perfectly valid web page, although it is more about experimenting with Google AdSense than it is with Mesothelioma or cancer or class action lawsuits. It is not fraudulent in any way, other than it may generate traffic towards one of the valid sites that are hopefully listed to the right.

If you are looking for valid information on Mesothelioma or asbestos cancer or are in need of a lawyer for a law suit over mesothelioma, then hopefully the ads to the right will be helpful for you. Good luck and I hope we both find what we are looking for.

Article published – Summer 2005 2600

I got home from presenting at Defcon 13 and sometime over the weekend, the new Summer 2005 issue of 2600 magazine came out. It contained the article that I just presented on at Defcon entitled “Hacking Google Adwords” which can be found below if you keep reading.

This was my 9th article to be published by 2600.

The article was submitted to them around 6 months ago (give or take a month) and I continued my research on the topic as I put together my presentation for Defcon and I found a whole lot of other interesting things that were demonstrated in my presentation that I had not found when I wrote the article.

The article is posted on DocDroppers.org and the powerpoint presentation is right here: .
