    Luna. Make it happen.

    This is not the first time I requested this. Why is it so hard?

    Listen, I am willing to pay 6.66 USD a month for this.

    Bouvet Island. Most remote island on Earth.

    Pyongyang. No DMCAs!

    Easter Island. Think of the awesome logo you could make for Easter Island Hosting.

    Barrow, Alaska. More caribou than people.

    Narnia.

    Mordor.

    S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier.

    The bottle city of Kandor.

    Buffalo, NY.

    If I was going to want an 'exotic' location, I would want it provided by a company in that actual location.

    Which makes Luna location the best for defeating DMCA.

    Why? I guess there's difference between exotic and exotic but that would mean no BuyVM, no HostHatch and no Virmach, depending on what you call exotic.

    Also, what's the difference between a provider not operating physically in a exotic location vs in a not so exotic location?

    Exotic to me is a location that is not mainstream. All of the providers you mention above are operating in mainstream locations.

    For example, a UK registered company providing a service in an 'exotic' location operates under the law of the country they are registered, where they provide services is irrelevant.

    If I was using that exotic location to avoid law enforcement getting to my data, it is not much use if they only need to serve a court order on the UK company and force them to give access. A lot easier in the US or UK for example that some other countries that don't bend over as easily.

    Is Luxembourg mainstream? Is Sweden mainstream?

    Also, the only reason for using exotic locations isn't just to avoid laws. It can be to host any given application locally where it's users are located.

    emgh said: Is Luxembourg mainstream? Is Sweden mainstream?

    Yes, I can get services in both of those locations from many providers. Nothing exotic about Luxembourg or Sweden, they are very accessible, mainstream locations. Not unusual by definition.

    Sealand had a pretty beefy DC some 15 years ago for being on an abandoned military station. :)

    Let's go with something feasible but also useful...

    Greenland/Iceland... (I hear they have fat pipes and cheap electricity, peering between NA and EU might also be interesting)

    Another realistic option we don't see frequently is Portugal.

    My perception is that there are some areas around the globe that are poorly served or where prices are very high: the Middle East, Africa, and South America (though Amazon is there). Mainland China as well, in a sense.

    However, I suspect you'd have to be a pretty big player to offer LEBs at cheap prices in those locales...

    I also want this location, but the dark side, where is colder and I can take advantage of better CPU overclocking. I am willing to pay too.

    Fastmako (aff) - great VPS for your needs.

    I can get it cheaper, but yeah.

    We'll be opening a location... Portugal, soon.
