    So I was looking at this site to see where they're hosted at, it's a movie site, so you can see why they would want offshore. But Antarctica?! It must be an IP trick. That's so badass. This must be a result of the ICE crackdown on these sites.

    Look at the server stats.

    It also says in server stats that it is hosted by CyberBunker, and that are the guys that snatched Cold War bunker in Netherlands and turned it into datacenter.
    Their rates are expensive, their proposal is seductive, but the fact that they are on EU territory is not so appealing.

    Hosting in EU is the way forward. Asia etc sucks for the speeds.

    Netherlands is also the base of these sites, most of them are hosted there.

    I agree. Netherlands is smart to go offshore in, better load times, better up times, loose regulations.... but if your sites draw heat there, you can always move to Asia or Panama or Russia, which are like the 2nd tier in offshore quality.

    Where?

    Well NL hosting will work if you don't become popular, afterwards, go to HK or somewhere else. That's why I pointed it out.

    Yeah it's not hosted in Antarctica, it's hosted in NL.

    When Cb3rob gets too much pressure (especially from lawyers), they have to give up on you. Happened with TPB too.

    I saw this once before on another movie site.

    This site also shows their server in Antarctica.
    Code:
    http://www.ip-adress.com/whois/movie2k.com

    How do they get it to show that the server is in Antarctica?
