    So, if I am correct in my knowledge, domains of .co.uk are outside the jurisdiction of the US. So therefore, considering the following factors, would this mean the US has no control over the content which would be hosted on the servers:

    - The server and all storage is hosted outside the US
    - I am not a US citizen (I am from the UK and live in the UK)
    - I register with a non-US based company

    Also, anybody who knows a bit of British law, for those reasons, my site could not be taken down for copyright, as they have to issue a notice first as a request for us to take such content down if it was hosted on our servers.

    As you may be able to guess, I am finding a way to set up some file sharing site and avoid the US government and stick to our British law.

    Bro, with all due respect.... doing all this from the UK is asking the US to still cut you a new azzhole..

    move your servers and everything else to cuba or venezuela... they will NEVER cooperate with the US.... ever.

    Very true. However, since I am not the one uploading the content or linking to it, merely hosting it where to monitor such a cluster of data is not possible, but accept to respond to copyright infringement requests, surely I would not be under the same set of regulations as to actually telling people where to get copyrighted material.

    As for Barack and David having an affair, if I were you, I'd send them the morning after pill.

    Damn, need to have my own set up, create my own country and have a .gof***yourself just for the US government :)

    I'd say bring it on to be fair. I love playing chance. But can't recall ever seeing a server hosted in those countries :/. Any recommendations?

    Russia.... Honestly, the Russians scare me. And the Mongolians'.... That is a whole other story.....

    But yeah, Russian hosting sounds good. Putting the "Bulletproof" hosting a bit to literally though. Any recommended ones?

    from what I know most stable '' bulletproof '' servers are hosted on china , even with that , they aren't so stable when they are dealing with '' illegal '' content , thing is guys you must understand how networks works ( the internet ) ... even if you are located into some friendly jurisdictions ( thanks god there are still some decent alternatives ... ) you have to connect to internet ... [ well that part it's pretty obvious ] .
    <= guess what :D ... this shit is controlled by guess who :) yep ... US government , virtually they control all allocation of IP blocks worldwide trough IANA organization , actually IANA , RIPE and ICANN are working together to control the virtual world like you know today .
    Short long story , any internet provider , will need to apply thru international organizations like IANA / RIPE and ICANN to get ip pools / domains and so on ... to can route their local traffic into '' internet '' virtually the internet is nothing more and nothing less than a huge connection between local networks ! I don't think you will find any network provider there who will be ready to risk their worldwide connectivity for any kind of materials hosted on their network .

    Little thing to understand about '' friendly spam honsting '' , or how we call them BH hostings , practically this guys need to compile with official regulation , some of this hostings simply ignore the DCMA notices ( and they aren't cut your sites so easy ) just because the DCMA notice will not affect them directly until they don't get the warnings from the routing organizations . To be honest it's way too childish and way too small thing those DCMA notices from duplicate / pirated content to come into serious play ! BUT don't think those hosts can stand and can host you for example child porn, or bank scam pages LOL . Why ? because peoples who are dealing with serious crimes will simply cut their worldwide connectivity if they aren't comply with the rules :) .

    I seen the company SwedenDedicated on another topic in the Lounge, I guess that would work but to have a suitable amount of diskspace and bandwidth would cost me in the region of £200 a month. They seem to be a pretty strong company if you do a Google search on them, a case where they refused to let the police in because their paperwork wasn't up to scratch and actually closed their steel door lol xD
