Submission + - Ask slashdot: Ideal country to rent a VPS

hobarrera writes: "I have rent a VPS from a provider located in the US. With all the issues of the US government taking down servers (sometimes without a good reason), legal issues regarding what I may and may not traffic, DMCA, and privacy concerns, I started looking for a VPS provider located elsewhere.

The first thing that came to mind, was to see where domains like thepiratebay where located (expecting it to be a quite "liberal" country in this sense). However, contrary to what I expected, Sweden actually blocked tbp at some point.
I don't want to pirate movies or anything ilegal, but I'd still prefer to operate on a country that has a clean record when it comes to taking down domains, and that I know my server will be running the next day every night when I got to bed, and I can expect an acceptable level of privacy.

For the record, I live in Argentina, and while Argentina does match my needs in this sense, hosting costs here are prohibitive, and quality extremely poor."
