I've been using a shared webhost that is on's network, however have experienced frequent hiccups with the network. I was looking at leaseweb, but their low prices really scare me.

Offshore Hosting - Dedicated Servers

Apr 13, 2008

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?

Hosting Onshore (Aust.) Vs. Offshore (US)

Jan 22, 2008

I have an ecommerce website built in .NET. We sell alot of records, music etc., so having fast loading mp3 samples is important.

Our shop is based in Australia and most of our customers will be based in Australia.

My questions is:

Will it make a difference whether we host in Australia or the U.S.?

Will hosting in the U.S. slow us down (in terms of website loading and mp3 samples loading)?

I am not sure how large the website is, but it has SQL databases and it currently has about 1.5 gig of mp3 samples uploaded to it. I am predicting we will need around 3 gig of disc space to start off with and then an increase of around 1/2 gig per month.

How do you think the website downloading speed and data transfer speed of mp3 samples on our website will be affected if we host in the offshore (in the U.S. for example)?

Offshore Proxy & Offshore E-mail

May 14, 2009

Like many of you, i'm very keen on protecting my privacy. I live in a European country and i don't trust my government or Brussels.

Unfortunately my knowledge about computer privacy is very little, so i hope you guys can help me out a bit.

What i need is:

- Anonymous offshore e-mail account, in a country like Hong Kong, Belize etc.
Payment by western union, SSL or other encryption, no record storage like when i logged in with which IP address etc.

- Anonymous offshore proxy, also in an offshore jurisdiction like Hong Kong.
Payment by wetsern union, Highly encrypted, no records etc.

I found some companies who offer these services, pretty much offers everything i need. But can i trust them? Because they only exist in "cyberspace". (not really offshore and they snoop in your records and emails, pro-actively work together with the gov.)

Selecting A Hosting Company For Videos

Jan 11, 2008

I own a small company specializing in the production of science education videos we sell to public schools. We would like to begin to deliver our videos to schools over the Internet. Our collection includes about two thousand video clips with accompanying metadata. We hope to gradually build a customer base of several hundred schools by June 2009. I need advice on how to find a good company that offers the colocation server option, and I need to know what kinds of questions to ask when shopping for a company.

When Is Offshore NOT Really Offshore

Mar 29, 2009

I've been searching for a truly offshore hosting company (still vacillating between VPS and dedicated server, mostly because of my need to control my server) for my entirely legal, communications businesses websites that serve high profile individuals who like their privacy as much as I like mine. My goal is to be out of reach of the US civil legal system where anyone (American or not) can file frivolous lawsuits and use the purported power of the US subpoena to compel discovery and other information about me and my businesses that they couldn't otherwise obtain. They look at my businesses and see dollar signs; deep pockets they can get into with the right lawsuit.

It doesn't matter if a lawsuit has any legal basis here in the US; it's that one has been FILED that provides the right to subpoena and discovery. (I worked in law firms for years; I know how easily this can and is done.) And that means the defendant has the obligation to fight back or lose. Fighting, or even settling, can be costly to a small business.

There are people and lawyers here whose only source of income is such lawsuits--especially of the "John Doe" or "CyberSLAPP" type. Sometimes the only objective is the destruction of a business by a competitor or enemy--and a lawsuit targeted to a small business can have that affect. Those of you who are in the US know exactly what I mean; we have entire industries designed to protect us from frivolous legal actions that are costly to fight. Lawsuits are sport here and hosting companies, rather than be sued themselves, capitulate to a simple, threatening letter from a private attorney (or a bogus attorney letter from anyone trying to locate somebody), canceling private domain registration and revealing other information about a client. Many webhosts, here and abroad, don't even validate the letter or contact the client to allow them to quash a subpoena or respond to the letter before they "out" the client. I'm not talking about law enforcement agencies investigating a suspected crime; I'm talking about private citizens using a legal system gone haywire to harm those with American interests or connections.

There are numerous other threats to privacy here, too, including USA Patriot Act excused government snooping, stalkers and just plain nosy citizens sniffing traffic and hacking your website to learn things about you they want to know. But the legal actions are my biggest concern. Therefore, it's just cheaper to go offshore with my websites and domain registration (and take other protective actions to protect my privacy and content), making them as anonymous as possible, than to pay for all of the liability coverage I would need in order to protect myself and my businesses from lawsuits, which can be upwards of several thousand dollars a year AND require me to sign personal guarantees as well as put my name and contact information into one of those databases from which anyone, anyplace in the world can buy my info.

So, I need a hosting company in a privacy friendly jurisdiction (read, one that not only values free speech but won't "give you up" at the first hint of a legal threat) that has NO connection the to US, the surveillance societies that other countries have become or oppressive governments that harm those who speak out again political or other corruption or whatever. (That rules out MOST countries on the planet.)

However, most of the companies I've considered either use American servers to host their OWN sites, use American servers to host client sites or have some other connection to America! Some of them purport to be "truly anonymous" or "private" yet have American divisions or are American companies offering offshore privacy! Others register your domain privately or sell you DNS management and then park your domain on US servers! How can you claim that and be connected to the US or another surveillance society? (See the Privacy International website to learn what I mean by "surveillance society", if you don't know.)

It's gotten so that, in part because of one of my favorite Firefox add-ins that tells me where the server of a company is ACTUALLY located, regardless of their domain name's geo-designation, if I see an American flag on my browser bar, I don't even let the site load up before I close it. Connections to America mean client's privacy and confidentiality can be breached by an attorney letter or subpoena to the company hosting the server or to the American branch/hosting partner of the "offshore" company where the target has hosting. (And DNS cloaking or URL redirects aren't always successful.)

So, why do "offshore" hosting companies on American servers, using American hosting companies to serve clients, who are resellers for American hosting companies or that have other, direct or indirect connections to America, call themselves "offshore" when their assets are on American servers and subject them and their to American legal action and law (like the USA Patriot Act?)? Don't they know this is true?

Do clients desiring true privacy or anonymity (even those living outside the US using non-US hosting) understand the risks of hosting with or allowing your offshore registrar to park your domain on the servers of a hosting company with US ties (like a US division or parent) if they want to avoid US-related issues when hosting? I mean, even using Google ad dollars and similar US services if you're trying to remain offshore with your websites can subject you to legal action in the US and all that it means.

And, just who are the TRUE, reliable offshore hosts in privacy friendly jurisdictions who have great service AND price structure? Do they exist?

Offshore/Private VPS

Aug 15, 2008

I have very specific needs for a VPS provider that can host a reverse engineered game server (NOT WoW) I want to run. I will not be using BitTorrent or IRC or the like, but I want to run an emulator that may or may not fall into DMCA reverse engineering issues (the legal implications just aren't all together clear with the DMCA). I just don't want to have to deal with getting unplugged constantly over something that is not illegal. I won't be hosting any copyrighted material or the like.

Here are my needs:

Windows 2003 Based VPS
384-512MB RAM upgradable if needed
10GB Disk space (Don't really need even that much)
150GB+ per month transfer
a good connection with semi-low latency (doesn't need to be as low as a counter-striker server or the like but needs to be solid and fast)
A control panel of some type is fine, but I only really need Remote Desktop access

Other than that I am pretty open. Country of origin doesn't matter too much and I would only like the company to be somewhat reliable. I want as cheap as possible of course, but I would be willing to spend ~$50 USD per month.

Streaming FLV Videos

May 30, 2009

I have a website that users can download software (~150 MB).

I currently have a VPS server with Liquidweb.
20 GB RAID protected storage, 384MB dedicated RAM (maximum that can be achieved is 528MB on this package), 200GB Monthly Bandwidth Transfer. I don't use much of the 20GB disk space, but every month I use about 60 GB Bandwidth.

Now I plan on incorporating video files into one of my software packages. Because there will be about 1000 video files (each being about 3-4 MB), that would take up 3-4 GB drive storage; hence, I don't think it's feasible that the users can download the software package. Instead, I can keep the software package size to a minimum and the solution would be to STREAM the videos from within the program.

At this point, I can do one of two things:

1) Keep my VPN for my website and find a hosting provider that has STREAMING services for the videos

2) Upgrade my VPN to a Dedicated Server (Pentium 4 3GHZ Hyperthreaded, 2GB DDR SDRAM, 120GB 7200RPM SATA/8MB Cache, 2000GB Monthly Bandwidth) and have my website and streaming videos on one server.

Also, if I choose option #2, would you recommend upgrading to Dual 120GB SATA / Hardware Raid 1 [add $40/month] or 73GB 10,000RPM SCSI / 8MB Cache [add $60/month]

Again, I just need a server that will play the videos. I will have users that will be simultaneously connecting to the server to watch the videos from within the program so I would like the most stable and seamless choice.

Embedded Videos

A Server With 100+ HD Videos

Mar 22, 2008

a new dedicated server for a new site we will be launching very soon. We have been weighing our options as far as server configurations and because it is a startup our budget is limited.

But the one thing I wanted to ask about is our primary hard drives. We were going to go with 2x250GB RAID1 SATAII's for their price and reliability. Our total server budget is around $400/mo... so money is tight.

But this site will have about 100-150 High Definition Videos in a certain section (averaging about 200mb each) that are viewed in progressive-download. The daily traffic is about 8,000 uniques and we can't really be sure how many people a day will watch a video, or how many videos they will watch.

With that being said... do you think RAID 1 SATA's are fine? We don't want any problems with people having slow download speeds, since fast transfer speeds are important to us. Or would the SATA's be a problem for sure and you'd recommend faster SCSI drives or RAID 5/10/etc.?? We are not even sure if we can afford faster drives... but if you guys thought SATA's would be a problem.. we'd go back and sharpen our pencils some more.

Converting Videos

Nov 29, 2007

I got ffmpeg, mencoder and flvtool2 installed on my server (centos 4) but when I try use them, the size comes off substantially bigger then what I can do on my PC.

For example I've been using Sorenson Squeeze (using Sorenson codec) and say at 240brate(video) and 32 (audio) and at 320-240, it comes to about 100 megs for a 50 min video.

Is there some good strategy on using these free tools effectively? or do the free codecs just can't compare to the paid ones?

What would be the commands that you guys would run to get the best size for those specified options I mentioned? On mencoder and flvtool2 that is. I have the latest versions installed.

Shipping Servers Offshore

Aug 22, 2009

Have a client who is looking at hosting a number of sites offshore, likely in Panama. The sites are targeting Central American users, so he wants to host them close to his users.

I'm sending out some emails to some datacenters I've seen recommended (HighSecured, HostingPanama), though one concern I have is what is involved with exporting servers outside of the US.

I know when ordering through Dell, one of the questions in the process is about exporting the servers. For a country like Panama, what sort of restrictions do they have? What kind of expenses should I expect with customs or what not?

Finally, anyone have any experience with shipping servers offshore? My biggest concern is with hardware replacements. Most colocation there seems to be per-U than 1/2 rack, so I couldn't necessarily have a spare standby server or spare parts sitting in the rack. Even if they could store some spare drives or what not, how do you deal with getting replacements there from Dell, or RMA'ing bad drives? Seems like there would be a lot of time lost and expenses due to shipping things around.
