How good is iPage hosting service ?

First question I got is How good is iPage hosting service ? Many thanks for any answer. Another question... I need help battling fraud on my site..

Someone is targeting my iPage site placing orders for product with working CCs that don't belong to them up to 10 a day..

I have come to realize it is automated. They go directly to my account page, sign up, and order product. They all have something in common that I prefer not to talk about at this time that lets me know they are bad orders. I run all my CCs by hand so I can verify them but never the less it's costing me time and money..

Is there a way to make sure a real person is signing up for an account?.

Are there any other ways to stop them?.

I have tried IP blocking but they are all from different addys. The CC companies don't give a damn and the police and FBI are a joke when it comes to small business fraud on the Internet. If I didn't ship the product and loose money they don't believe it's a crime. On the few occasions I have shipped product, and reported the crime they have been less than helpful..

Any help is appreciated..

I believe either of these contributions will help you - although I don't use either so I can't vouch for their effectiveness.


Visual Verify Code (VVC) security..

Comment #3

The Visual Verify Code (VVC) security function is used by many forums now to stop the scripts that auto register and bog down a server. It should work for you. I haven't used the contribution one here but the one we use for our forum works well...

Im planning to use the vvc contrib, and I saw it works when the customer is creating an account. Can it be used in the login page, so it add more security?.
