When  I  read the original post, my natural instinct was *frames*,  having
never  visited  the site in question. This is one of the many pitfalls  of
using  frames. If the choice of frames for navigation was not yours and is
not  controlled  by  yourself, then I too suggest that you  alter  hosting
plan. At present, this gives your host estate, ranks and very much control
over your site. It's not one of the common issues with frames per se.

Hope it helps,
