    I have a website with a download section that contains some semi-copyright material.
    Technically, this isn't illegal but I do get a few DMCA/Copyright notices each month that I have to spend a lot of money in countering.

    I am planning to switch to a host that doesn't mind these copyright notices as it'll be cheaper and less of a headache for me.

    The question is, is there any DMCA-free (and other copyright notices ignore) host based in EU that is as good as a premium host like DigitalOcean, LiquidWeb, Amazon AWS etc?

    I have tried NovoGara (ex Ecatel) so far just to see but their connection isn't great. (It used to be according to reviews). Link speed was 100 Mbit but my average over a week of testing at random times was 15-20 Mbit with max of 60-80 Mbit (rarely). Now that's unacceptable giving their servers are a little on expensive side.

    So does anyone has a rock-solid experience with a host of my requirement?
    Only allowing copyright material (technically it isn't). No Spam. no warez, no p2p and so on.

    P.S. I would appreciate if someone with actual experience can reply. Suggestions to try a random host isn't helpful as I already have a 300+ list of hosts that suit my requirement but I can't test all of them obviously. ;)

    When you say you have a "website with a download section that contains some semi-copyright material."
    You mean you host the files on the server ? Or provide them third party links for download ?

    Impossible to have non-DMCA in Europe or USA. You'll only find them in countries that don't abide with this legislation.

    There are a lot of hosts in EU. Novogara is one of them like I mentioned. I know a lot of hosts in EU that just ignore DMCA and any other copyright notices.
    I am just asking people for their experience cause I can't try all of them one by one.

    Don't say things you don't know, super easy to takedown? Of course is, but there a lot of stream providers in Internet, you takedown 1, it have at least more than 10,000 links for streaming. So don't say thing.

    The link you provided is about Ecatel, Ecatel is now Novogara. They still ignore DMCA.

    And you say it's impossible to ignore DMCA in Europe!? Let me laugh, you don't have knowledge. But hyperlinking is not a crime in Europe.

    netengi.com
    flokinet.is
    alexhost.com (Porn content is not allowed, but it is DMCA ignored)
    2x4.ru
    privatelayer
    uanode.net
    vpsbg.eu
    koddos.net
    webcare360.com

    Finally a reply that is not stupid. ;)

    Have you tried any of them?
    I like 2x4.ru pricing but can't find any reviews of them.
    Any ideas?

    Its not super easy. It requires a court order. Like I said in first post, my content isn't of the magnitude where I'll be getting court orders.
    And you said, its impossible to find DMCA ignore in EU. EU is home for these things. Look at cyberbunker or novogara or Alexhost. The list is huge but that's not my question.
    My question is can they be compared to a premium host like DigitalOcean or AWS?

    Well 2x4.ru ignore dmca, i never used them but i know websites With dmca content hosted With him.

    On right side you see the rules of you can't do. They are offshore. Prices can be a little expensive.

    It never will be like AWS, digital ocean but the experiencie will be similar.

    Well give a try to netengi, webcare360, hostkey (Cloud Vps) they are cheap.

    Hostkey in the past it was offshore, now i don't know.

    Well Just see your budget limit and use what you can buy

    Even if you see privacy Police and terms of service of 2x4.ru or netengi they require court order from local law of their country to take it down.

    They tried hosting The Pirate Bay all over Europe, all failed. DMCA got them every time. Now there are mobile mirrors of the thing hosted in dynamic IP's nobody knows where they're at.

    I think some of the servers sold by these companies are outside the EU. That may explain the low link speed. Hosts in China may provide great speed, you may want to look there.

    You don't have knowledge to talk about it, during many years The Pirate Bay was hosted in Sweden with a duration of months and never has happened with them, until the police RAID.
    After that they move, and they have been hosted with serverastra.com (they are here until now)

    Domain .org is the best example I can give to you, if you search there are a couple of anti-piracy groups in legal battle to takedown .org domain of piratebay.

    Why this didn't happen until now? I remember, they are on legal battle against TPB because of .org domain
    https://torrentfreak.com/riaa-fails-take-pirate-bay-domain-now-160606/ (see date and documents)

    So Mr.Knowledge "Where are the super easy takedown methods"? At this moment TPB is hosted in Europe, for longer month's in the same hosting (Of course they have a couple of hostings, but the "proxy" remains the same for longs month's"

    If is easy just like your said, TPB had being destroyed and never coming back. Like anothers websites, Hostings Providers etc.

    Really enjoy reading replies from users who don't have idea how European Hosting providers deal with such cases.

    Recommendation from your personal experience?
    Or just from HostAdvice DMCA Ignored list? ;)
