I have a website which deals with complaints from a particular

Resolved Question:

I have a website which deals with complaints from a particular company, which has a bad reputation. The complaints are listed after that have been verified by customers statements and proof of purchases.

The company sent a defamation notification to my hosting provider, who have now taken down the website and refuse to put it back up. The company who are claiming defamation have provided them with no evidence.

Where do I stand?

Thank you for your question.

The company doesn't have to prove defamation to the host. The host has taken the decision that it doesn't want involved in potential court proceedings and it is entitled to take that view.

If you want to continue you will have to find another host.

Sorry you won't like that advice but that is the position.

Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
