There has been complaints that emails are being sent out as though they are coming from myhosting.com. The message advises that your domain has gone above the resources available for your plan and redirects you to sign into a fake myhosting.com control panel (see sample message below).
The message is fraudulent and not from us.
We have reached out to the hosting provider of this fraudulent account and are awaiting their cooperation to shut them down.
In the meantime please do not open this email or use the links in it as we believe they are trying to get your account details. If you have already done so we ask that you immediately change your account credentials as well as contact us via email@example.com:

Sample fraudulent message:
Dear myhosting.com client,
**Reference to fake myhosting.com signin page**
Domain account *yourdomain.org * has exceeded the limit load available for the existing pay rate plan.
Methods of load analysis and elimination:
In order to prevent your account from being locked out we recommend that you change the existing rate plan onto a more powerful one or limit the server load by means of code optimization.
