Got something to hide? There are a number of perfectly legal reasons why a website owner might not want his or her identity revealed. Perhaps you wish to bash your employer or don’t want a future employer to associate you with Rick Astley. Whatever your reasons, there is large market for a service called anonymous offshore hosting that will keep your identity secret.
Anonymous offshore hosts typically operate in countries with lax government regulation and do not require the customer to submit any person information. They also support anonymous payment methods like PayPal and prepaid credit cards. Customers of these services also generally use WHOIS privacy services.
Anonymous hosts are a secure way to express your freedom of speech, but should not be used for illegal purposes. Even if your host allows you to upload illegal content, your local jurisdiction will still hold you liable for any illicit activity.
