    Can someone with experience shed some light for me please? Say I sell replica clothing online, and soon enough the brands or their people find out and decide to file something against my website/domain, what will happen next? I'm hosted with a2host, and my domain is with namecheap.

    Please tell me what would happen so I can plan preventive steps. Please also advice how I can go from here. I'm trying to get my domain out of namecheap to an offshore domain registrar that ignores DMCA.

    Any recommendation & advice is GREATLY appreciated.

    Thanks

    You will get a notice to take your site down first (mostly), if you won't comply, it will get taken down anyway. Nobody will bother taking a law action against you.

    There's hosting in the marketplace that is DCMA.

    Did you use fake or real name / address etc with Namecheap and current host?

    It will boil down to how badly someone wants to find you, as to how much effort they will put into doing so.

    Say if I remove all copyright stuff from the website when I receive the notice, will they still let the site run then? After I remove all copyright infringement. Or is it still going to be removed even if I delete all infringement?
