I signed up for hosting on http://www.a2hosting.com/ and they asked for a scan of my government issued identification and credit card.WTF?

Hehe, I already offered my hosting. =)  (We've only got one customer so far, and they're pleased with there service, so no official business license until we can get a stronger customer base).

Depending on CPU usage and such, between 5 and 15 dollars a month.

I'm also looking for web hosting for a bitcoin project. Do you offer proxy-registration of domain names? And will you accept bitcoins as payment?

I'd like to set up a simple website describing data-analysis services that I offer.  The servers need to be in privacy-friendly jurisdictions such as Panama, because (no surprise) I wish to remain anonymous.  And, of course, the provider must offer anonymous domain registration and payment.  I don't want to pay more than 10-20 USD per month.

@Quantumplation -- Where are your servers located?

Also, have any y'all heard of Root Panama?

We're located in Florida, currently at a residential address with a business class data connection and 2 dedicated hosts that are always on.  Once our customer base is large enough to warrant it, we'll invest in a T-1 line or better.

All we require is a single written/signed letter that says you're not planning on doing anything illegal, and we're not responsible for anything you do or host.  Doesn't even have to be written by you, just someone who's willing to take responsibility if you DO do something illegal (host childporn or something crazy like that).

Also, we'll provide proxy domain names, or you can register domain names with us (we'll just go to another service, but we'll get it under our own name to maintain your anonymity).

One thing I mentioned to noagendamarket in a PM was that we're working towards being a Green hosting company.  We're keeping our carbon footprint as low as possible.  Once we have an established user-base (and thus can afford to run a promotion like this), one thing we've considered doing is measuring our carbon footprint regularly, and giving all our users a discounted price proportional to our carbon footprint.  This will incentivize US to keep our impact on the environment as minimal as possible. =)

I haven't had a problem with inaccurate or incomplete information using them for over eight years.
