    I have just started a new warez site and have bought hosting on a offshore country but my domain is registered with namecheap. So my question is my domain safe with them? And when they lock down a domain? on a court order or just a simple DMCA complaint??

    Nothing is safe if ICANN interferes. Normally, whois guard should be enough.
    EDIT: Stay away from big players like Microsoft and Adobe ;)

    I don't care about WhoIS information because I am living in an Asian country. I am only concerned about domain name.

    NC is based in Los Angeles so NO using NameCheap isn't a good idea.

    Use a registar that is from a country that will allow shit like this, IE the same sort of country you would host in.

    Don't get a TLD extention (.com for example) to do with a country that won't allow this sort of shit too

    One of the biggest warez sites uses .org so you shouldn't have an issue. I don't think it matters which registrar you go through, ICANN is always there.

    Even though this is a couple days old, just buy your domain through TPB. You will have to pay an arm and a leg for hosting, and the domain, but its secure, and their servers are practically indestructible.
    Could also look into https://www.domainsbyproxy.com/Default.aspx

    Currently I am using a .info domain. I think I will transfer my domain to an offshore domain registrar.

    There is always a risk when it comes to using warez with a N.A Registrar because it is easier to file a complaint and it is easier for the company to pick off your domain. If this is just a quick and dirty thing to make a quick dollar I would say go for it but if you are looking to get into a big investment with warez/cracks/serials it would be better to get some offshore registrars.

    ICANN normally does not get involved with domain issues unless you piss in some big players cornflakes or get a shit-ton or traffic as the complaints are handled by the registrar directly and will normally comply with a removal request especially if you are a new client and/or joe-blow nobody.

    Who would take your side if NC did take away said domain? What defense would you have? You need to look at it from their perspective.

    My 2 cents on the query for you :)

    I have decided to move my domain to an offshore registrar in the next few days. The project I am working on will be long term and I am expecting a long time income from this site once it is established.
