    Hi all,

    I am setting up a tickets website for English football tickets. It is illegal to sell football tickets in the UK but like many companies that do this we are based in Spain and operate under Spanish law not the law of the UK. It is legal in Spain to do this.
    The problem is we have set the site up with a US hosting company and a club in the UK got their solicitors to write to them saying it is illegal to sell tickets in the UK. Due to this the hosting company we use has pulled the site down.
    We have explained to the hosting provider and the club that we do not sell tickets in the UK and only sell them to other countries but the hosting compnay will not put the site online unless the solicitors write to them, and authorise it. The solicitors are not going to do this as their clients do not want the site online and we have not got the money or time to take them to court.
    To cut a long story short I am looking for a hosting provider that is not in the UK that will host the site and not take it offline if they get a nasty solicitors letter.

    Can anyone help????

    Thanks.

    Once they come back up, you can try prq.se
    You could also try OVH.

    Neither are in the UK, nor the USA. The first is in Sweden IIRC and is currently down pending a raid by officials for 4 sites. The company hosts many file sharing/torrent sites. The second is the largest datacenter in France and also the cheapest dedicated provider.
