Why would a actual iPage cpanel file be different from an actual internet site?

Got a quick question: Why would a actual iPage cpanel file be different from an actual internet site? Looking forward for any answer. 2nd question I got is.. I'm in the process of purchasing a 5 figures domain, but the problem is I don't have a clue whether the HostGator is blacklisted in either search engine or AdSense. What should I do before paying him?.

1) Should I ask him to point the HostGator to my nameserver and let me check whether I can put AdSense on it?.

2) Currently the HostGator is a parked page. I've searched in the Google using the HostGator itself "" but it isn't indexed. How do I know whether the HostGator is banned by search engine?..

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..

For the reinclusion:.


I would say typically no thats not a normal request one would make when purchasing a domain. I would be sure that Google could tell you if the HostGator is in trouble or not...

That should get you started to find out how to do a reinclusion request.

Also if the HostGator was previously used type the HostGator as following in the Google search bar:.


If nothing shows up at all, no result pages the HostGator could be banned..

Use this.


As well to see what turns up..

Also Adsense is not a problem at all, if the previous owner was banned from the AS program you would use the HostGator for your own account. Just give an indication of this to the Adsense support team...

So do you mean I should buy the HostGator first, then put up a page, if the iPage site didn't get indexed then only I do the reinclusion request?.

By the way normally will a parked HostGator get indexed? I see a lot of parked domains not in search engine...

You can only do a reinclusion request for a HostGator you own.

So yeah, you would first need to buy it and develop it..

Really, don't worry about the HostGator being banned, this can be straightened out afterwards when you are the new owner.

I have actually encountered parked domains in the search results and with solutions like 1Plus this possibility is only getting bigger...

Use Escrow, and have a contract if you want assurance on these issues...

Comment #6

I agree with Damion, don't worry about the Google ads until you get the name..

Once you've aquired the name, contact Google and check to see if it's blacklisted. If it is, they will help you straighten things out. Be sure to contact them first, don't just put your publisher info on the new iPage site and see if the ads appear, that might get your account suspended if the name was previously blacklisted..

$xx,xxx and you're asking these questions here?.

Don't do it - you're biting off more than you can chew..

Just being honest - if you want to PM me the name to see if it changes my mind, great, but....
