Free Speech Hosting
We support freedom of speech and expression for all. Journalists, whistleblowers, activists and you.
We believe that freedom of speech is a fundamental human right that is currently under threat. Our stance as a business and service provider is that we exist to provide quality solutions to publishing content on the internet, and that it is not our job or our duty to determine who holds valid opinions or viewpoints. Our extreme customer privacy measures combined with our supportive stance on freedom of expression makes us the perfect choice as your free speech hosting provider.
Free Speech Hosting Considerations
When seeking a web hosting provider that supports freedom of speech, there are important details that you should consider.
In the modern age of a constant push to censor those who go against conventional thinking or allow for open and free discussion, choosing a free speech web hosting provider can be difficult. There are some important things that you should consider when choosing a web hosting provider for your free speech needs.
- We do not require you to provide verifiable personally identifiable information.
Unlike other providers, we do not require your personal details to provide you a service. This means that you are safe from having your personal details ever made available to others. We don’t need to know who you are and can not share what we do not know.
- We allow all services to be paid for by all major popular crypto-currencies and other non-traditional methods of payment.
While we’re happy to be paid via PayPal and Stripe, our more privacy focused customers enjoy the ability to pay for their service via a variety of crypto currencies and off-site payment methods. You may view our list of supported payment methods here.
- Our services are offered in countries specifically known for their privacy laws and/or their support of free speech.
- Finland: Good for privacy, good for speech.
- Netherlands: Good for privacy, good for speech.
- The United States: Not the greatest on privacy but very good for speech.
The above statements may be considered controversial, but it’s our professional stance on the subject. While Finland and the Netherlands offer good privacy and speech laws, the simple fact remains that the United States allows speech that other locations may not. Each location has it’s pros and cons and a variety of things should be considered in choosing the right location for your specific needs. Regardless of location, we protect your privacy with the methods shown earlier and offer our services only in countries that have modern network infrastructures to make sure your voice can be heard by those who seek it.
- All of our services in all of our locations comes equipped with DDoS protection.
All of our services and all of our service locations come equipped with DDoS protection by default. We are working on being able to offer higher level and more advanced protection as an additional service for those who may require it, to help ensure that your content remains available to those who seek it even when faced by those who wish to silence it.
- Do you need your content to be made available through anonymity networks such as I2P and Tor?
We are proud supporters of both the I2P and Tor network projects and have donated either time, money or network resources to each. Our own website and privacy projects we sponsor are made available to the clearnet (regular internet), I2P (Invisible Internet Project) and/or Tor (The Onion Router). By mirroring your content to anonymity networks you are taking a bold stand in protecting the privacy of your website visitors by giving them the choice on how they wish to access your site. We allow our CloudLinux Shared Hosting customers the ability to opt-in to mirroring their content to the I2P and Tor networks, free of charge. For VPS hosting customers, we can help point you in the right direction and give some vague advice but do not wish to directly configure any customer’s individual web server for them for a variety of reasons. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
- The truth of the matter is we may disagree with you, but we’re a service provider, not a content moderator.
Our business is ran apolitically and to be quite frank we do not expect that all of our customers are going to be people we’d want to sit down and have a beer with. And that’s okay. While we may or may not support your message or content on a personal level, we do and will support your right to express it.
