Please note that Host.al is often not providing webhosting services for a particular domain name or website. In such cases, the allegedly infringing material does not reside on Host.al's computer servers and the above Copyright Dispute policy does not apply. When Host.al is not providing webhosting services, Host.al does not have the technical ability to remove or disable specific items of objectionable content. In this instance, we suggest that you contact the website or the party hosting the website to have this matter properly resolved. The IP address of the website in question often reveals the party that may be providing webhosting services.
