So this morning we got a few complaints about phishing attacks being hosted on our servers:

04/21/2013 10:30
The website http://blockchian.info is a phishing site for https://blockchain.info

04/21/2013 18:00
We have suspended the hosting account pending further investigation.

04/21/2013 09:12
Dear Sir or Madam,

Forgive me if I am wrong, but the website http://blockchian.info/ appears to be hosted by you, as reported by whois information.
Their website is a poor-quality impersonation of the website http://blockchain.info. The website hosted by you is obviously a phishing website designed to steal logins and passwords of unsuspecting users.

Many thanks for your help in advance

04/21/2013 12:14
We will contact the owner of the site and notify them that we will be suspending their account.

04/21/2013 19:58
We have suspended their accounts.

After further investigation,I am the owner of Bitronic Technologies and I have shut down these phishing sites with similar names to https://blockchain.info
Does anybody know the handle on the bitcointalk forums for the owner of blockchain.info? I'm like to PM him and make sure these domain names get into his hands.

From what we can tell he also had phishing sites setup on these domains (which we have suspended all of):
blockcchain.info
blockchaain.info
blockchaib.info
blockchaih.info
blockchaiin.info
blockchainn.info
blockchakn.info
blockchaun.info
blockchian.com
blockchian.info
blockchin.info
blockhain.info
blockhcain.info
blocckchain.info
blcokchain.info

I would like to sell all of these domains to the rightful owner of blockchain.info for now they will remain suspended and pointed at our nameservers so that he can't put the sites back up.

Nothing but good things to say about Bitronic as a hosting service. Good service and better prices than namecheap.
