hostbuddy.com > Alchemy Communications Inc / Alchemy.net, which continuously sustains IP addresses rated up to "critical" amounts of spam during a 30 day period.

Alchemy is the datacenter where we place our servers, but we are not Spammers. There are many killers in America, does it make all Americans killer? Each website should be rated and treated individually, our rating shouldn't be affected by which data center we use. Agree?

We are with them for close to 15 years and never have a single problem. I wonder how many websites are suffering from inaccurate WOT rating just like us. There should be ways for legit businesses to contact WOT to sort out problems like these.

Could be hostbuddy.com IP addresses from alchemy:

www.senderbase.org/lookup/ip/?search_string=72.26.111.20
www.senderbase.org/lookup/ip/?search_string=66.171.244.167
www.senderbase.org/lookup/ip/?search_string=72.26.109.24

We have few other domain name running from alchemy and we have normal WOT rating for those domains. So it's not IP related. I think we simply don't have enough 'GOOD' rating on wot.

As recommended by myWot, we've asked our customer to give us honest ratings. I am not sure why they got banned though. Anyways, I gave up. MyWot is not a reliable rating system.

It's been close to 5 years since my last request for review. Can someone please revisit this issue for me? We are a legit web hosting company and we've resolved all the issues pretty much 5 years ago.

Thank you,
