Many years ago I had my website about birding hosted for free by a hosting company. Their URL made visitors thinking they were about birding, but they were just a hosting company. So, they had linked to my website, then on Earthlink, to offer their visitors some birding info. I found out about their links and asked them to remove them, but they offered to host my site for free instead. Which I agreed to do.
As time went by, I ended up spending more time on a different hobby, and my birding site just sat there. When I decided to remove it, the hosting company would not let me access the site and now they are using it to get Google ad revenue.
I asked them to take my content and images off their servers. They said they would, but they have not. They have been very sneaky and elusive about this whole thing.
Is there a way for me to stop them? All my birding info now resides on a different hosting company. I don't want the duplicate content to be an issue, so I really need to have them remove my stuff from their servers.
