Reporting domains and website involved in illegal activities

I am not sure Godaddy knows but selling and promoting illicit products like steroids is illegal in Canada.

I have reported the domain themusclemass .com 3 times already and they're still up and promoting use, sale of steroids.

Is your bottom line more important than Canadians' health?

I just wanted to add though it is technically against the terms of service to do anything illegal, the service providers are in a tough spot determining what is and is not illegal.  Some things may be more clear cut like phishing and malware.  For something like this you'll also want to contact the appropriate law enforcement agency so they can determine the legality and the action to take.

Hi @Jema5050. Thanks for posting. I would echo what @Nate and @MrVapor mentioned above. In this case specifically, it looks like the domain is registered with GoDaddy but the website, based on its IP, is hosted with a company called Poundhost (according to ARIN). Since this is an issue with the content of a website rather than an issue with the domain name, I'd recommend reaching out to the abuse team at Poundhost.
