As many hosts try and find their niche in the marketplace many hosts have chosen to cater to the adult/porn hosting community. As adult content is estimated to be be as much as 50% of the internet traffic you can’t blame them right? WRONG!
Bluehost does not and will not tolerate adult material of any kind on our servers. Sometimes profit comes second and personal responsibility and ethics come first. I am not telling other hosts to not provide adult hosting services, but I wish that they would come to that conclusion on their own.
Adult material hurts people in so many ways that I won’t even argue the point here. Aside from my own beliefs about why it is wrong, I don’t think that any clear thinking individual would argue for the merits of porn. It is a business that I will never practice or enable through our network.
If many of the other hosting services out there didn’t make it so easy for this type of material to be so readily available maybe the problem wouldn’t be so severe. I would suggest to other hosting companies out there that service this market to reconsider what you think is important in life. Is this really the type of thing you want to peddle to the community? The hosting providers are just as guilty and the content providers in my opinion.
I’ve been meaning to write this for a while, and it finally came out now. I am sorry if anyone is offended, but I am not sorry for my position. I will stick to my guns on what I believe in and this is something that I firmly believe in.
