Uncertainty about Hetzner online
I am an existing Hetzner customer and currently own a dedicated server for backup.
I am running a shared hosting service with a lot of websites and users (thousands). I use servers from Reliablesite for the shared hosting. I'm looking at expanding the number of servers and Hetzner's offers fit perfectly.
However, I have read several complaints about Hetzner shutting down servers sometimes without warning or explanation and even in some cases hard disks getting confiscated by city authorities.
Since it's shared hosting, sometimes some clients host fake websites related to banks and others. I have a strict policy in place to ward of abusive clients and websites. I mostly go through orders personally and refuse orders that I deem suspicious. Some clients are still able to sneak some fraudulent websites sometimes which I take down immediately they are detected or reported. I always act promptly on abuse reports.
I would like to know whether anybody uses(d) Hetzner servers for shared hosting and if they have experienced any issues caused by websites hosted on the shared server?
Would you recommend using Hetzner servers for a shared hosting business?
I am aware that Hetzner doesn't disclose reasons for shutting down servers.
