    :confused:

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking for offshore web hosting for my movie site. I am searching for past 3 days and could not find a good one. I even purchased server from Panamaserver but the server sucks and i asked for refund..

    Please help me if you know any good VPS provider who do not care about DMCA notice. I am having my website hosted at hostmonster as of now, but you know they may take my site anytime down..

    Please help....
    Thanks

    There is no such thing as an "Offshore" host these days unfortunately. All countries have some form of copyright laws which are a pain unless you found someone to put a server in a village somewhere in East Russia. As far as ignoring the DMCA issues go, I mean OVH is pretty good - a lot of small torrent sites are hosted at OVH.

    OVH.co.uk - have a look at their dedicated servers :) Or have a look at the thread I was posting on in this section - the one where it says "OVH RDP" it's the 2nd topic in this section. We're planning to split a server between 8 of us, you'd still get 500gb space.

    even offshore sites are care about DMCA notices. Just that they would inform the client and ask him to remove the whatever the DMCA notice is about. Unlike a normal host which would delete your whole account without even notifying ( usually they status this in their TOS )

    I haven't found a good offshore site yet since all of these sites have downtimes.

    I would avoid WRZhost. Inconsistent performance and near non-existent tech/customer support. They advertise 24/7 support, but you're lucky to hear back within 24 hours. Based in the Netherlands, they're looking more and more like one busted blade server in the back room of a hashish shop.

    wrzhost host a lot of crap, and their servers go down a lot i heard. I was thinking about shinjiru vps. most are right about dmca, but would leave it up to you to decide what to do, if it is 'offshore'. disneyland and yanks have copyrights with every nation apart from iran i think. Also antartica is safe, check out cyber bunker, but costs a bit. Another decent place to host would be sweeden. Generally yanky doodle dandy and disneyland would go after us hosted sites imo before any in europe, although they took down one hosted in NL recently, but the domain and person was located in yanky doodle land, so they stole it and stuck a crap banner on it, saying they nicked it.

    Well, it's either they are looking to take your money and run. Or it will be shut down sooner than you think.

    You need to be careful when dealing with offshore

    wrzhost has been my host since december 2005 and I would never change, too much bullshit with other hosts
    when you can manage your own shit you don't need support
