If you work as a freelancer you have surely heard about DMCA Or Digital Millennium Copyright Act. This law requires the removal of any content which infringe copy write from the web hosting companies servers.

DIf web hosting companies like nshost.ro facilitate the contact possibility from third parties whose copy write are violated, this rule does`nt apply for everyone.

I will give you an example. Freelancer X working for 2 days and 2 nights for client Y is left unpaid by his client, more the client is nowhere to be found. After waiting for more 5 working days to get in touch with his client, the freelancer sends a DMCA demand to ISP (internet service provider) and to his client web hosting company.

Yet he faces another problem. Both ISP and hosting company don’t have/give any contacts. (way to contact) Hopeless and with a sound hole in the budget our freelancer will definitely choose more careful his next client.

Does this situation sound familiar to you? If yes, our advice is before you start working with a client make sure u have all the available data to make a complain in case you client does not want to pay your work anymore.

Make sure your client web hosting company is transparent and is willing to provide contacts. The Conclusion? Good luck with your work!
