I think it's overkill. There are probably 1,000+ companies offering web hosting in NZ and 99.999% of them are fine. I understand that the failure of 24/7 has hurt you, but imposing some sort of international police control on every hosting company in the world? It's not only too ambitious but it's way over the top in the circumstances.LauraTulloch wrote:What do you think of my idea below ie setting up an international association under something like Interpol?
a) It's not required for 99.999% of hosting companies, and
b) you'd have trouble getting hundreds of countries to agree with the concept.
We're only talking about a single entity here - one badly run company. Under NZ law you have a legal right to go after the owner/s of 24/7 for compensation and recovery of any costs incurred. I'd suggest that the Disputes Tribunal would be the correct venue. Whether Caleb has any funds to settle a dispute is moot, but at least you would have the satisfaction of winning the case. Because frankly, you couldn't lose.
