    I had a site that was making me over 100 dollars a day that received a DMCA. I removed the files from the server and now I am not making anything. Do you guys think I should move it to an offshore host and risk legal trouble, or should I just sell the domain.

    You can get offshore servers for cheaper than that... much cheaper.

    If you need a dedi it might be $70?

    Just because its "offshore" doesn't mean that you can't get in trouble.

    If he's making $100/day, then he's getting paid by someone which means that there's a paper trail to him.

    Piss off the wrong company, and they'll track that paper trail to him.

    This.

    Hosting is rarely the issue, it's usually the paper trail. JV with someone in a country that doesn't respond to DMCAs and pay them 20% of the revenue (get them to send you the rest).

    You should be okay this way assuming the network doesn't pay attention to the C&D either.

    Sorry to ask, but why offshore essential web hosting for several sites? What are the benefits? By the way, I have lock my domain whois privacy so no one cant find my IP and real info. So that's you why prefer offshore for same feature?

    just because your info is not showing up on the WHOIS it doesn't mean that you can't be found... if you are receiving money from someone, then there always is a way to find out who you are... (you will have to PAY for the hosting, you will have to pay for the DOMAIN - yes there are some ways to find out the domain owner even if you paid for the PRIVACY...)

    IMHO, these only happens to EU countries, those living in the countries like India, Philippines, Pakistan, China are not tend to get into trouble.
    I am not sure, but this is what I think.
