Think again. Are you really into this? Chances good that you have came across some so-called hacking websites and decided to give it a go.
They also taught you how to create fake login pages for gmail, hotmail or even fake login pages of banks.
While I don’t see ANY reason why you should not STOP right now, let’s assume you ‘really’ have a good reason to host a fake page. Which hosting do you choose?
Hosting phishing pages with FREE web hosting providers
That’s where you usually want to have a look. That’s what every other wannabe hacker (thief) does. It’s almost zero risk for you unless the law enforcement guys are after you.
Downside is, the hosting providers usually remove your contents and account without a proper notification. Guess you had missed the fine-print when you ‘accept’ed the terms and conditions for free hosting. Well you must also know the free service is not always reliable and your scripts can fail without reason 😉
Using a popular web host
Don’t do this! Even though you can host your phishing pages on a good cheap shared server on well-known providers e.g. HostGator,don’t test their leniency. I like these hosts because they don’t mind whatever you do unless there’s something really important. However, the ToS usually tells you to stay away from all sorts of hacking/phishing attempts; else the accounts may get terminated.
That’s so because a good shared web-host would never like to risk blacklisting of their IP addresses, spoiling own image, and risking thousands of other co-shared customers’ data.
Make use of Crazy Discounts
This is specially for the BlackFriday week. You get hosting accounts for as great as 80% OFF! Click here and see the offers.
Having said that, your scripts will most likely work effectively on these hosts and never fail you as long as you don’t breach the ToS or cross the resource limits.
If that didn’t make sense yet, DON’T host a phishing/fake page ANYWHERE.
