    Offshore Hosting - Dedicated Servers

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you guys can refer me to some quality offshore dedicated server providers. I have heard of Leaseweb and Piradius. Leaseweb seemed not to be a good choice as if I recall properly I read that previous hosting clients were dissatisfied with the lack of support. Is this true - what do you Leaseweb clients have to say? I could not find the Piradius servers so I gave up looking for them. Does anyone know where I can find their "actual" website?

    Also, it would be helpful if someone can tell me how to find out who hosts a website by checking some data. For example, here is a Piradius client. Piradius might be a datacenter for all I know, so how I do find out who the hosting company is?

    I am going to open up a forum where people link to videos or movies on video-hosting websites. Basically, a website that links to any type of video or movie. Preferably home made amateur or short budget movies, but I do not want to be held liable if copyrighted videos are posted.

    As I see you are considering Dutch based web hosts. There are excellent connectivity in Netherlands and most web hosts provide quality service. The only thing I would advice you to check is what kind of support are you going to receive. The EU companies charge different way for customer support. UK is also a good place to host, even the pound is too expensive at the moment. You may also consider Sweden or Germany as a countries where to host your projects.

    Please note that it is better to make your web host familiar with the content of your websites, especially if you intend to offer adult content.

    If copyrighted movies are posted, will you remove them within a certain timeframe after a notice from your provider?

    Especially in the Netherlands, the anti-piracy movement is really active with lawsuits against hosters.

    There will always be a risk that they (anti piracy movements) will start a lawsuit against your Dutch host to get your details, this happened before and with succes. The Dutch providers involved had to give the details of their client.

    I will not be hosting or uploading any content. The users will only be linking to it. Is this illegal? I am sure that linking to any video is not illegal.

    I am interested in servers located in the Netherlands, Sweden, France, Hong Kong, Malaysia, or anywhere else that will accept this type of website. How would I find reliable, good support, and reasonably priced servers in these countries? I have tried google searching for servers multiple times within the last few months, but have had no success in finding good hosting companies.

    Also, as I am still confused about this, does anyone know whether Piradius is a datacenter or a web host? If Piradius is a web host, please redirect me to their website.

    Thank you, and I appreciate the help.

    @kotrt99 There is legal precedence in Sweden that says that it is not illegal to link to (copyrighted) material. Though, the prices are quite high as far as the Swedish dedicated server market is concerned.

    Take a look at leaseweb.com - their servers are located in Netherlands. Of course, their oficcialy do not allow linking in their rules, but their host hundreds of torrents etc.

    It would be helpful if someone can answer this question. I have thought about using Leaseweb, but I heard that their support is horrendous. I need a reliable host, not a mediocre host.

    I have known about this company for a while, but thought that their entry level dedicated server prices and specifications were high compared to leaseweb or alphared. Don't you think so?

    I'm sorry, but i cant agree with that - and i'm sure RapidSwitch wouldnt thank you for that comment either.

    Are you really saying that they would allow *everything*?

    I will post the news if I find any. However, I will unlikely find the true Piradius website as I am only good at researching using search engines. Yet, none of the terms that I have searched regarding Piradius have helped me find out about the company.

    Piratius is network of Shinjiru.com

    Everyone who use shinjiru, know that ... I use shinjiru, they allow warez links, but not warez hosting, at them VPS and Dedicated Servers.

    They are very good provider, stabile network, great up time... I thing that they are the best OffShore solution.

    If someone want Hong Kong solutions, try at www.*******.com , they have racks at HostFresh Data Center.

    You should check out FlexServers if you're concerned about support. I know a guy out in Russia who uses one of their dedicated services and he claims they reply to tickets within minutes.

    I'm pretty sure they're in Netherlands.

    Good Luck

    Are Eurovps and Clustered.net considered offshore hosting providers? Also, can someone point me to the English version of Host Fresh and the dedicated server section of Intercage.
