Web Hosting for small business.
    #1142336 - 12/15/02 06:57 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I am wanting to start a web business were I sell blown glass and I have noticed that some web hosters have the policy of " drug contraband" or " drug paraphanelia".

Can I get someone to show me a hoster that won't complain?

Well now, if you live or are doing business in the United States, drug paraphanelia is illegal. So even if you found a hosting company that didn't care you were selling drug paraphanelia, it would still be illegal to sell and ship through the mail, the latter being a federal offence. State and local municpality laws should also be taken into account, as sometimes these are stiffer than the federal laws.

In most cases, if you were to sell blown glass tobacco and legal herb mix pipes, you would not be breaking any laws and giving the hosting company nonthing to complain about. Now I understand that you may want to advertise using pot leaves and such, but doing so only invites trouble. If you are trying to make a legit business, it is best to advertise within the limits of the law. Make sure you investigate all the appliciable laws so that you don't get stuck with outragous fines and possibly felony convitions.
