Where To Host Illegal Websites?
Where to host illegal website? Bulletproof servers.
The Internet is full of a wide variety of information. Most of it is harmless and does not represent any interest for law enforcement agencies of different countries. However, several topics are officially considered prohibited, and their placement on the Internet is illegal.
There is a way to avoid sanctions. About it below.
The concept of legal and illegal content
Legal content includes texts, films, videos, music and audio recordings, software, photos and pictures published in compliance with copyright laws and which do not contain any offensive statements or extremist appeals.
Illegal content - these are the same materials but posted in violation of the rights of the author or dubious content.
It is forbidden to publish materials of this nature:
- pirated copies of musical works, films;
- photographs and literary works published without the consent of the author;
- any extremist materials;
- materials such as 'adult video' ( adult );
- online gambling resources, without a license;
- offensive material;
- selling drugs and weapons online;
- Hype spam resources.
A complete list of illegal content is described in the American law DMCA. Similar laws exist in the European Union and other countries.
The list of prohibited content varies. For example, porn or online casinos are not considered illegal in the Netherlands.
What threatens the publication of illegal content
A site hosting prohibited content must be banned. However, the amount of web resources makes it unrealistic to check all the inhabitants of the network. Therefore, a prerequisite for sanctions is the complaint of the user.
After receiving the complaint, the company - the provider of the domain name, hosting, or search service must necessarily respond to it.
Depending on the nature of the complaint and the addressee, the owner of the web portal for which the complaint is received encounter:
- whole site patching (with numerous similar and recurring complaints);
- spoilage of the domain name (i.e., the web address of the site);
- removal of links to the site in the search results.
To continue the activity, you have to change the address of the resource, update the URL of the blocked pages, redo the content of the site for search engines using other keywords. If the entire site is blocked, you have to change the hosting provider and transfer the data to another server.
It takes a lot of effort and money to continue working.
How to post illegal content and avoid blocking
If there is a risk that the site may be banned, or the activity is legitimate but causes a storm of negativity from the layman, it is worth thinking about finding a bulletproof server.
A bulletproof server is a server on which site files are stored, without the threat of blocking it upon request. It is provided as a bulletproof hosting service.
How it works
The owner of the server registers the legal entity in the offshore zone of one country, and the server places it in the territory of another country in which some illegal content is legal.
Thus, customers renting a bulletproof server avoid legally blocking.
Bulletproof servers include those located in the following countries:
- Malaysia and other Asian countries
Depending on the content, the provider can choose the country with the most loyal legislation. True, server rental rates are 2-3 times higher than the price for an analog that is not resistant to abuses.
To maintain conventional Internet resources, you have to rent a place on the remote server of any hoster. However, if the smooth flow of business is hindered by the flow of complaints from dissatisfied customers or unfair competitors, it is worth spending money on renting a bulletproof server.
