    I see you've started an offshore hosting business. Out of curiosity, where are you located and do you have your own servers or are you resellers?

    I currently have servers in the UK, it gives me more control and the option to provide VPS's.

    I'm also considering getting servers in other locations such as Russia, but its too early for this.

    Alright, goodluck. Wouldn't go with Russia. Unreliable network. Try Romania instead.

    SSL certificate gives your website a Green Bar lock.

    SSL Certificates are used on commercial websites that collect client private info when ordering.

    We do ignore it and we only take action when there is a "UK" court order.

    Even with a UK court order, the client is moved to a different server on a different country, and its no longer a "UK" issue.

    Anyway, I don't want to go into our business details but we do ignore DMCA.

    Another server location you might consider is vietnam, although. I am not sure how well their datacenter infrastructure is there.
