We welcome individuals of any technical ability to the StopBadware community.

Hosts and other network providers can contribute to a safer web by following StopBadware's best practices for web hosting providers. The best practices were developed in 2011 by a top-notch working group that sought to create a framework for ways hosting and other providers can effectively respond to reports of badware on their networks.
