Bristol company hosted notorious child-abuse site

A Bristol-based ทางเข้าเล่นslotxo company is being criticised for hosting a website known for sharing child-sex-abuse material.

Web-hosting company Zare provided its services to photo-sharing site Imgspice for four days last month.

The Internet Watch Foundation describes Imgspice as "notorious" for spreading child-sexual-abuse material.

The charity says companies such as Zare should work harder to vet customers and prevent people "profiting financially from the rape and abuse of children".

Zare says it terminated its relationship with Imgspice when it received complaints from the IWF.

Its parent company, Hydra Communications, said: "The Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) brought this to our attention on 1 June, whereupon the service and account were immediately terminated.

"Hydra Communications fully supports the IWF and we will continue to provide our complete cooperation, working together with the charity, the wider industry, and the police towards a safer internet."

Web-hosting companies such as Zare store the files that make up a website and make them available for viewing by visitors online.

Imgspice is based in the Seychelles and allows users to upload images and videos to webpages for sharing with others.

Advertising money from popular content is shared with the uploader if they receive enough views.
