Got C&D notice from facebook. Does moving domain and hosting to offshore makes any difference?
C&D's are my area of expertise. Don't panic. They are primarily used as scare tactics.
Who is the C&D addresses to? Is the domain linked to you in what way? i.e whois
If the domain is linked to you, give it up and ensure you're next attempt you remain completely anonymous. Otherwise if you continue it ends up in court proceedings against you as a person, not just "please stop using this domain".
If you are already anonymous, they may issue a UDRP which if they have a good case against you, you will lose the domain. However it costs them $1,500 to issue a UDRP. I don't know of any registrar that does not comply with UDRP rulings... If you find one, let me know!!
I've only once had someone try to go after my hosting after attempts to stop the domain failed. I simply jumped the site to various free or cheap hosts until they gave up.
So providing your anonymous, it's just a case of registering a new domain if/when a UDRP proceeding comes up. Then whilst the UDRP is being investigated (takes around 4 weeks) you 301 your UDRP domain to your new domain. By the time the UDRP is finished and you lose the domain, you're PR and rankings are transferred over to your new domain.
I don't speak for everyone, but I will. Juicy details of your C&D first!
