    Why not make a site that is useful to general public.
    Help others and make money.

    If you are asking us to reassure you of the laws that your own country may or may not have with regard to running a site with adult content, I think you would be better off asking someone in law enforcement in your own locale.

    Hiding your information won't really do anything because if you're going to get in trouble with the law, they'll just contact your domain registrar or host and they'll take it from there. I'm not sure if you can do this because you're running an adult site in the United States, so I'm guessing you're going to have to abide by US laws since your servers are located in America. Not sure, you might want to make sure though.

    Yugo,

    more than domain name, you need to contact your host about their policy. and the legal content is very important. if you are sure you own what you show/sell there must be less problems, provided you have your disclaimers and other documents in force with the legal system you are operating.

    as per law there is NO law regarding this in Indian penal code, section 67 of the Information Technology Act only empowers the state to block sites that [“the sovereignty or integrity of India, defence and security of the state” or that endanger “friendly relations with foreign states”.]

    savita bhabhi was the only site blocked under this which might fall under porn:rolleyes:

    the guy who runs it is very much in India and site is now hosted from fr. and any one one can assess using a proxy , so much for blocking it.

    Indian cyber laws are pretty thin at the moment and very much clueless as to what is happening online.

    the law states i.e i.p.c , that you cannot publish or distribute pornographic material BUT you can access it, running a website falls under publishing BUT again there is no law on this in the Indian IT act which governs the the cyber laws , no unless and untill you have enemies who know that you run this website in the local area where you live and they lodge a F.I.R with the local PD which i really doubt you are very much safe.

    breaking the law yes but on on a technicality.

    there should be no problem. So long as the pornography does not contain minor's and data is kept up to date, and abides by US law in that way... you'll be fine buddy ;)

    if you are running legal US adult then there wont problem from US :D and from indian point the laws are confusing.

    Are there any restrictions on registering Indian domains?

    The Government of India some years back established the Computer Emergency Response Team, or CERT-IN, as a means to monitor all incoming and outgoing Internet traffic from India. Currently, there is no established law as to which websites the government censors, or when. In the past, mainly pornographic and anti-establishment political websites have been blocked.

    Adult web sites are restricted as being against public morals and decency. Most registrars and hosts will not register or host web sites which contain adult contents including pornography, warez sites etc. However the discretion as to what the “adult” material is has been left entirely to the registrars and hosts of web sites.

    So best is if you want to run adult site use privacy protection for domains.

    I would reccomend running an adult site hosted on a offshore server like netherlands, germany or hongkonk. Because with adult sites issues do tend to come up some point intime but hosting in those countrys youll be fine.

    well where is it said that accessing is not criminal act as for indian laws?

    i think you can be prosecuted for buying and watching prono cds and movies if caught...
    plus no laws means may be they can detain you as long as they want....unless something is decided..
    so do u have any supporting sites,laws,documents etc when u say accessing is allowed...?

    in many countries i think hosting adult site in not crime,but hosting child prono is crime in all parts of the world.

    of course child porn is a crime anywhere which it should be too!!

    that the funny part about Indian i.p.c you can have porno material on you but you cannot sell it or publish it , and laws regarding this are very lax , they are more concerned about xxx cds in gray market but if you have license to sell those cd's and dvd's you can sell them too, so accessing any pron is not crime since there are licensed porno mags which are there in market and dvds too mostly imported.

    OP i think you have nothing to wry about just don't tell your neighbors or frns that you are running the Indian version of bang bros :p like i said Indian govt is least bothered about what is happening online unless and until there is a formal complaint plus web censorship is one thing they can't pull off due to a active media coverage any web censorship is looked down upon unless it is a matter of national security.
