I just needed some advice on this:
I decided to change my server IP, so i redirected them to the new ip for a couple of days, and then canceled the servers.
My server host (veeservers.com) decided to resell the IP because it still had an average of 22 players, including all of my server files (its a zombie mod), so he sold it to some guy, who kept my old clan name, and all the files to get people back into it.

My issue here is that hes giving my server files aways, and I feel this is the equvalent to me canceling an email account, and them giving my emails and account name to somebody else.

Thanks for your help!

AFAIK, there's been alotf of weird shit like this coming from veeservers. It's like, the instant you stop paying them they start using what's left from your server (especially if it's succesfull).

You are right with your comparison to the e-mail accounts, but I don't know what the law says... after all these are files that are propably available elsewhere in the internet. Well, just thinking with text, somebody might have some useful knowledge on this.

I'm just wondering...what do you mean re-sell? Like sell it at a higher price because it already has a bit of player-base compared to starting a new server? Is that how it is?

Sorry for asking but I've never really heard this kind of practice among the other GSPs.

You should have deleted every file you can delete before you canceled it for safety measures...even though you're under the assumption that your host would delete it for you automatically as soon as you cancel your account. Hehe.

I honestly think that's bad practice.

Go and make contact with a lawyer or something. That way you'll at least have a more proper back-up than what we say here.

Yes, actually an interesting situation, and during too time the sad!

My individual advice, on a private experience to do copies
of the first copy and not to trust files to strangers!

At us similar in the project could be, if we were not extremely attentive,
as many our competitors and dream to receive any way all necessary files (NAKEN.LV).

I personally consider that it not lawfully and besides it is blackmail.

All it I tell because happened at us such already in practice.

wheres the contract to the hosting plan?

that would tell you everything and if there is no contract, consider this a lesson learned.
Don't ever place an order with Vee Servers. This is why.

Login has changed.
honestly, i wanted to keep the server for another month, but he told me the only way i could continue to have it is if i payed for 3 servers combined, and i just didnt have that kinda money. I woulda deleted the files if i would have known that he was going to give it to someone else

i dont know what you mean by hosting plan, if you mean tos, then i still dont know what you mean
