    Title says it all.

    I intend to host a large number of website anonymously, so a free host would be a good choice. However, I need one that won't take down my site for some stupid reason (like 000webhost).


    Yeah, I know "free hosting sucks, get hostgator!!!!!!!!!!!111111". That's not helpful ;)

    I need something that can't be easily trace back to me, because my country has got some nasty laws concerning websites, like mandatory detailed disclaimers, including your name and address.

    And there are plenty of (asshat) lawyers who are making their money crawling the web for pages that don't fulfil the conditions, sending out cease-and-desist letters to the owners.
    (That guys are basically scammers, but it's legal nonetheless...)


    Therefore, I need a host which doesn't collect any whois data.


    Thanks in advance,

    T.

    Surely it's the domain that you need to hide your details on and not the hosting. I know if I hosted a site with hostgator or the like I would expect them to keep my details private regardless of some lawyer asking for them based on the IP address of any site I'd registered using a domains by proxy service. Correct me if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure it'd be against data proteciton laws for hostgator etc to give out your details...
