I'd like to create a website with a very radical political message. It won't be unethical (encouraging violence, etc) but I feel the points I plan to list in it will definitely make me a lot of enemies.

How hard would it be to protect my identity from anyone finding out who I am? I know domains always have a $10/year option for privatizing your registration information but is there any other protection I should think about having?

Here's an idea. Try to do it has anonymous as possible, leaving Easter eggs so it looks like it stemmed from elsewhere, say some BFL exec.  Grin

It's against TOS to leave false WHOIS information, so the best way your opponents can attack you is by taking the domain down.

Always use the $10/year privacy service, then everyone cannot see you've left false information.

Then feel free to enter all fake info, and use a proxy while doing it, and whenever you update your website.

I'm into creating universes, smiting people, writing holy books and listening to Prayer Messages (PMs).

I know a dude in Kansas who used 123 Elm St. as his address when he registered his domain names (plural).

It's not a much of country or provider issue. You should not use false whois info because whoever's against your cause or simply has malicious intentions could target you more easily. Unless of course you're willing to use .gr, where no information about owners are disclosed. I think that must be the only country tld doing this.

A friend said  simplest and best way to eliminate many of these things being used to identify you is

Don't register a domain or pay for hosting at all. Instead, register with a free blogging platform such as Tumblr or WordPress.com

Is this true?

Found here. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=103369.0.

bitcoin.org was originally owned by Satoshi. He registered it through https://www.anonymousspeech.com

The website theymos mentioned provide anonymous domain registration and hosting. Another plus is that it also provide anonymous email.

Only thing needed for perfection would be payment in BTC.

Also a hidden service would be an option, but would only accessible using Tor

I dont know if they have a Tor-based website but I do know that they accept Bitcoin. If you look at the right sidebar, there is an update which titled "Bitcoin Payments".

That takes away some of the flexibility and is different for each case so it's up to you. Look up the ToS of each service, their registration process etc. Do you trust the provides with the required info you should give for registering? Would your blog's views be in agreement with their ToS?

Rates for an anonymous site are pretty expensive.
40 EUR for a dot com domain
30 EUR for shared-linux server per month!  No DDOS protectoin and only 1 SQL database.
Yikes!
