    Hey everyone,

    I was just wondering about these offshore hosts. Let's say that I was about to start a website that claims to give free s-t-e-a-m codes. (Just a random niche). I setup a content locker and when the user does the offer, he gets nothing. If I got a website like this, would an offshore hosting be the best alternative? Like, could s-t-e-a-m sue me if they find the website, even though I give the users nothing? I would not be using s-t-e-a-m in the domain name, but still?

    Thanks in advance. :)

    They can sue you of course but its rare and most likely they just gonna report to google, dmca and remove your site/page from search results. Most of the time they know that its fake and they dont care. But still all my sites (even whitehat) are offshore and private whois domains.
