    Best host in Sweden that does not care about DMCA and has CPanel

    I am looking for a good reliable host in Sweden that has CPanel available and is cheap. I have small copyright issues and am trying to get away from DMCA as a result - I have no porn, no heavy stuff, or spamming etc just small issues with the DMCA.


    I need at least 25-30GB disk space and at least one TB bandwidth/month

    Shared hosting will be fine.

    If any one has any tips please <<snipped>> post it here.

    I do not want to spend more then a absolute maximum of $50.00 a month

    Thanks!

    Is there any specific reason you want to choose Sweden? For your purpose I'd rather go with something like server.lu. They got a good peering and also offer virtual servers. The provider I'm thinking first about if I hear Sweden, would be Portlane. But they're not in your price range.

    Thanks for the replies, I say Sweden because from all my research I have found that Sweden is the most resistant to the DMCA PirateBay is there and many others that do not like DMCA go there too. There are other countries like Panama that are DMCA resistant (they could care less about DMCA) but they do not have good bandwidth at all in those places.

    If any one else has any suggestions please clue me in! I have been searching on my own, but am really getting frustrated trying to find a hosting company that will ignore the DMCA.

    Many places when I ask them they say the will but in their official posted TOS they say they will not. So it is a bit confusing for me. If any one can tell me from experience or from the grape vine what they know I will be very grateful!

    Well, as I suggested, server.lu won't usually care about DMCA. bahnhof.net will surely be a great option too though.

    If you only ask them if they ignore DMCA takedown requests, they might not answer or not give you the answer you want to hear. That's because it always depends on "how bad" the DMCA requests are. For example, if you're running a torrent tracker or something like that, you'd really have to choose a location such as sweden. If you only host some kind of warez board, or even receive DMCA notices because of just a few images or something, most EU hosts won't care, but would still say they follow takedown requests.

    thanks.

    No, I just have art and stuff like that nothing heavy... but western hosts like in the USA just pull the plug on someone if the DMCA even look at their customers in the wrong way it is insane!

    Totally guilty till proven innocent.

    Hmm, if it's just that, you should be able to actually choose any EU host I think. In this case there are many much more cost-efficient options than something like Sweden. Have a look at the offers on: http://www.webtropia.com/en/, contact the support if you like their offers (they also offer cPanel) and describe your situation in details, don't just ask if they ignore DMCA notices. Because as I said, most hosts will think about torrents or stuff like that and simply say "no", but if you describe your situation, I think even Webtropia would be fine with that. At least I can say their network is very good, while their peering to the US isn't the best. You can also try the same strategy with http://www.netcup.de/ - they have their servers located at Hetzner's DC and their peering to the US is better than Webtropia's. Hetzner is also very well known around here, in case you want to search for reviews about their network.

    You probably know this, but some of the Piratebay operators were taken to court in Sweden, and got sentenced. It's not some magical "break copyright law, get out of jail" country. Also some police tactics have been quite heavy-handed.

    Sweden likely eavesdrops Russian internet traffic and reports to US. This is just an example of the relations between countries. So if you step on the wrong toes, Swedes hear the message from US loud and clear.

    That having been said, probably there are several European hosts that will just throw a silly DMCA message out. Apparently this kind of hosting is something that people actually do search on Google. Tried it a while ago, when there was a similar thread in WHT. Would not go with the hosts that such a search brings up, though.

    prq.se

    We made our own original work and someone copied us, but then claimed we copied them. Now Host American says... Oh well, tough sh*t .... No matter if you're right or wrong, you need to take it down and fight it in court if you feel strongly about it.

    Which we would, but we didn't feel like taking down our own stuff; just because someone else was being a dick. So onto prq.se we went.

    Yes, it is guilty to you pay tuns of money to prove your innocent in court, such is the way of the world these days... I was shut down for posting public domain stuff and some envious dorks sent a DMCA to my host. So I sent a letter (http://www.durangobill.com/Fight_DMCA_Abuse.html) to them saying it is a bogus accusation and my content is public domain stuff. But my host pulled the plug on me anyway... they told me to take down the content in question and go to court

    I checked out prq.se but they seemed to be much more expensive then most other people. Also I do not need VPS or dedicated or whatever. I just need a simple shared hosting plan. I only got like $50max a month to spend on this. my old host was like $8.00 a month or something. But now I got to fork it out for off shore hosting to keep up the site and I do not make any money on the site. It is full of free downloadable spiritual stuff like books, art, audio etc and I have invested several thousand of dollars on the audio recording equipment out of my own pocket.
