I've currently got my site hosted on the server of an acquaintance. I've never met her, but she's a friend of one of my mods. She set me up with my own login and C panel and everything. The agreement was that I could build my site on that server and then move it to a real hosting company whenever it got too big. I've been told, however, that she could potentially claim ownership of my site since it's on her server, and thereby prevent me from moving it, even if I have backups of everything, leaving me with nothing but my domain name. Is there any truth to this? I don't have any reason to believe she would do that, but I don't know her personally, so it makes me a little nervous. What is the law in this regard? Just to be clear, I have built the site on my own, with all my own money, and she has had nothing to do with it. I was at hostgator initially, but due to their unreliability I needed to move it somewhere else and she offered to let me stay on hers while finding a permanent solution.
