    Hi, I need offshore domain and hosting provider because I´m planning to run online movie website and you know this industry is something different than other. With what domain host and web hosting do you have experiences? And what domain should I use for my site? .tv or .watch or what do you recommend? Thanks

    I have used GoDaddy and hostgator - depending on their offers for specific domain types. Importantly, you will need to register with a service that allows you full DNS control, GoDaddy, in my opinion has a very comprehensive 'dashboard' for making DNS changes etc..

    GoDaddy and HostGator are today two the most popular hosting providers on the world. You can search for a plenty of coupon codes online

    Thanks for answers guys, but I think that hostgator or godaddy will delete my site if they receive dmca complain. And also does google index my site when will contain only iframe links? No download links for movies or something like that.. Thanks

    I would go with internet.bs for domains. They offer free whois privacy protection for lifetime.
    namecheap and namesilo would be secondary choices. They offer free whois for a year as well.
    And for hosting sharkservers. They have a thread in the marketplace.

    So if I use a a whois privacy protected domain, I can use it on "onshore" web hosting and not be risked by DMCA flagging my domain and content hosted?

    Many "onshore" hosting do mention in their TOS explicit "no child porn, no warez, torrent, etc"

    I would suggest internetbs.net for domain, I used to register all BH domains with them back then, don't know if they became a bit strict now.

    For the people that suggested Hostgator/GoDaddy, clearly they have no idea what they are suggesting and just purely commenting bullshit.

    OP already stated that he's going to be using it for an "ONLINE MOVIE" site, which is a NO-NO with both hosting.

    I'm beginning to think that a lot of people here are just replying for the sake of a post count.

    I agree with you mate. Tons of "increase post" comment type post these days. They probably even even visited the domain section of the forum which as a STICKY regarding hostgator.

    Godaddy is the best domain provider as long as you can use a coupon code to be able to deduct the price to make it worthwhile.

    Hostwinds provides the best hosting alongside having the most efficient pricing model as long as you buy it during a black friday special.
