What is anonymous website hosting?

Anonymous website hosting allows you to register under a pseudonym, remaining private online, when setting up the best web hosting for your needs.

Anonymous website hosting is the closest one can get from being truly private online. It provides multiple different ways of ensuring there’s no way of tracing the ownership of a website back to you. These include:

  • Registering under a pseudonym: users don’t need to use their real name to sign up to anonymous website hosting
  • No postal address requirement: when registering a domain name, you don’t need to use your actual address to do so
  • Paying anonymously: most anonymous website hosting companies allow you to pay using anonymous and protected crypto transactions, rather than regular payment methods
  • Being located somewhere with tight privacy laws: like when using a VPN, the country of origin for a website hosting firm can dictate what privacy laws are involved; those with more relaxed laws are best for the most privacy-conscious
  • Whois privacy protection: many anonymous website hosting firms, as well as regular ones, use Whois privacy protection to ensure that others can’t view their details online
