iWeb disbands biggest Domain Spammer network on the planet

No more spam from iWeb's PrivateDNS.com - The spammer has been kicked out.

Canada-based web hosting company iWeb have confirmed the termination of the biggest domain spammer network on the Internet.

Operating behind the anonymity of the white-label PrivateDNS.com domain servers, the hosted server was identified as the source of thousands of emails that were sent to domainers since at least 2008.

After our report of the situation a few days ago, Martin Leclair of iWeb stated:

The investigation was completed and the server is used only for spamming … furthermore it was in collection. The authorization to suspend the server was given 5 minutes ago. It should be taken offline shortly. I hope it will help to stop this spamming.

From this point onwards, it should be clarified that PrivateDNS.com is no longer linked to the source of spam that we complained about.

Some have pointed out that the spammer is from Turkey but so far there is no information to support this. Regardless, this is a huge blow to the mass-mailer of thousands of junk emails that preyed on unsuspected domainers by suggesting that they owed “search engine” fees akin to renewals.

Obviously, we will keep an eye on any new developments. Domainers 1 – Spammers 0 😀

    The power of Domain Gang and “BullS”–amazing force to be reckoned with.

    PrivateDNS really does the crazy things in shady domain industry. I haven’t seen their website running but they have significant amount of traffic, so they would need to send millions or even billions of emails a day to achieve this kind of traffic

    Good to see them closing doors! 🙂

    I really believe that private dns servers should be illegal. The Internet was created to be open. Now for a few extra dollars you can hide the domain ownership and it’s far easier to create spam, fraud, etc. The only ones who benefit are the major domain name registrars who’ve opened these services which provide privacy. I believe that ICANN should put a stop to them and if not ICANN, then maybe governments can ban them. I wish I knew who to contact to do something about it.
