Posted on behalf of Darkdocs, an non-profit dedicated to exposing companies and people for their bad practices.
Company owners: Timon Durand & Diezels
Timon Durand history:
Hostilic's servers run on Xeon CPUs. Given the fact that the company is too small to afford the ridiculous price of Voxility's DDoS protection it is suspected that they're simply using a VPS provider on Voxility's DDoS prot then GRE tunnelling their traffic to their Hetzner servers. This is supported by their previous MCM postings asking about GRE tunneling and the 3 hetzner ips (matching 3 out of 4 nodes that they own) that show up when scanning hostilic.com on a subdomain finder.

Companieshouse.co.uk Profile for Timon Durand:
fallen.host’s operating company “Fallen Studios Ltd”:
They are registered in the United Kingdom as "Hostilic Ltd.", and incorporated using: "https://www.herbertball.com":
Both companies are overdue on their confirmation statements.
The parent company (“Digico Comm.V”, Registration number in the Belgian business register: 0750.600.846. VAT number: BE0750600846). Address is publicly listed on https://www.digico.be/ and appears to be a residential home. The parent company resells UnlimitedWebhosting.co.uk web hosting and domain names as well as providing miscellaneous services like solar panel installation and phone repair among other things.
Website is hosted on Hetzner with "Cloudflare" DDoS protection which failed to withstand attacks. This is concerning as this is the primary place where you purchase services.
The server hosting the website had it's IP leaked, which revealed that they in fact are running VestaCP.
The owners of the company ban you from their support Discord the second they receive criticism or even just questions regarding their services. An undercover Darkdocs user asked them about their DDoS protection and mentioned GRE tunnels in their chat. The owner, Timon, then proceeds to say that they colocate with Voxility and banned the Darkdocs user immediately.
Allegedly Timon Durand, the owner, first bankrupted Fallen.host due to free Minecraft server hosting costs and exit scammed from the previous Hostilic Hosting attempt.
The pair, Timon and Diezels, are known for jumping into other companies support Discord servers and asking about information they have no need for. Allegedly the requests include company worth, annual & monthly income, DDoS protection, billing solutions, support team, server locations and server providers, future products & so much more.
Cracked Spotify giveaways are run in Hostilic Hosting’s Discord server. The evidence that supports this is the fact that they’re giving away ‘Spotify Premium (LIFETIME)’ which is not offered by Spotify AB. themselves making the only way to acquire it cracking accounts.
Upon further investigation the accounts turned out to be family accounts which winners get added to, which, is against Spotify’s own TOS. The owner of the server hosting the giveaways and providing the accounts acknowledges it himself:
Despite the accounts being family accounts and being then replaced each time you’re kicked given the fact that you even get kicked its very likely that the family accounts are indeed cracked accounts instead.
