Frequently Asked Question
1. I already have a name server do I have to use Btwixt's Name Server?
"No. You can use your own. You will be given the IP address to your site and can edit your DNS record to point to your IP."
2. Can I host an adult oriented site on Btwixt Group Hosting servers?
"Artwork is okay if it is for sell in the form of sculptures, paintings or drawings (not photos). There is a difference between a porn site and artwork. If you are unsure of the difference visit a local art gallery and ask them what your content is considered. If still in you are still in doubt about the artwork contact Btwixt Group. We owe it to our business clients to offer stable non-targeted servers and clean of this type of site sitting next to theirs. ARIN recently announced that dedicated IPs' were “a thing of the past.” So your business site could ping directly to an IP address that also has a porn site listed. If you are interested in testing to see if your server may have porn sites on it, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. If you host with a company you may be surprised as 90% are in it for the money and not the protection of their clients. Btwixt has been hosting accounts for many years.

"Btwixt does not allow spammers on any of our servers. With the recent support for the 'Do Not Call' list it is apparent that people do not want this type of advertising.

We will immediately suspend the accounts of those spamming and without proper justifications to triggers our software detects, all the accounts held by that person will be deleted.
