    Inspired by the Middle East a friend wants to create a political activist website. Since we're in the EU and not being anonymous could get you in trouble if someone sues you (slander and similar sh*t politicians usually cry about), we want to be safe and go completely anonymous. Since I haven't done this before, I need some help.

    I know I need:
    - a domain registrar which won't require personal information,
    - a shared cheap offshore hosting for WordPress (preferably below $100 per year),
    - VCC to pay for the above,
    - proxy service which will allow me to control the control panel.

    What do you recommend for:
    - Registrars for anonymous domain buys.
    - Recommended shared offshore hosting (preferrably outside EU).
    - Buying VCC.

    Will the free HideMyAss service be enough for managing WP?

    Do you think I should also buy SSL for the login screen if someone will try to hack us?

    Any other recommendations will be appreciated.

    This post gives you the answer... http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...c-d-cityville-owners-what-do.html#post2464866

    You can use Entropay or else you can buy VCC here in BST. We have a couple of VCC sellers I guess.

    Don't trust any free service if you are serious about this. Buy any anonymous VPS service.

    HTTPS is not enough. It is your hosting providers duty to protect your site.

    Thanks cyberzilla for the answers. Some clarifications would be helpful though:

    OK, so I host with ExtraWinner and buy the domain from Internet.bs. I'll check for privacy with ExtraWinner but what about the domain? I just use a fake name and pay with VCC?

    Are VCCs traceable? So if I buy the VCC with my PayPal they could still trace it to me. Or is there a trick I could use?

    I can still use HideMyAss and use a public WI-FI. This should be enough. I'm not going to post death threats or stuff like.

    I understand - but for logins it's usually recommended to use SSL, right?
