    Code:
    We received an email about a website you have on our server, blah blah,

    I know I have to take the site down, but can I move it elsewhere like to an offshore hosting or is this site pretty much done? Its only been up a few days.

    I am interested in this as well, I am looking for a good hosting that doesn't care about take down notices and will just keep the sites up and not give any personal information out.

    I have a form builder start-up and got lots of phishers who register every day phishing forms. Last year i was in Spain and wasn't able to check my mailbox TWO days. I've got lots of complaints from my web hosting and complain from domain registrar.

    Why i'm telling this story? Because if you find good offshore hosting it doesn't mean anything anymore. Now your domain can be closed by domain registrar!
