Popups

Spammers use this service freely. Sends messages through Windows Live linking to their site.

In recent times tripod, lycos and multimania webhosting became a heaven for all sort of cybercriminals (bot spammers, malware distributors..) resulting in a huge poisoning of Google and other search engines with fake results linking to bad sites. A large amount of the subdomains hosted (by several of their local clone domains like
http://www.multimania.es
http://www.multimania.co.uk and many others) are set up for criminal purposes and the owners of tripod seem to do not care about this situation either because they are iresponsible or, more likely, they have ties with criminals for a safe bulletproof hosting.

Tripod.com redirects to tripod.lycos.com – Lycos is a well known and respected company.

tripod.com is used to host sub-domains for hosting costomers. All sub-domains are independent and should be rated separately from tripod.com

Some years ago I used it to store my homepage.
In 2001, after having merged with lycos, they decided to close thousands of accounts without giving any meaningfull and valid reason. They did not respond to any complaint, neither offered the possibility to recover own data. Totally unreliable evil company.

You may risk spamming on here. visited and navigated and got 4 pop-ups total.

This web hoster cannot be trusted. This website hosts over 100 different scam, spam, phishing, and malicious domains. Do NOT use or visit any website made by tripod! Bad people!
