    Under current law porn is illegal in India so the answer is no.

    You can not host a porn site in web servers located in India, however, you are free to host it in a country where it is legal....

    Yes, you can host your website on offshore web hosting companies, where Indian laws are not applicable. I recommend you to rent a server or web hosting space in China or Hongkong.

    Remember, you can still be prosecuted on the grounds of intention to break laws in India, however, you will only be caught if you go about telling that you are the owner of the website. The logic is....hosting porn is illegal, accessing it is not. Get me ;)

    He still is breaking the law in India, how can this person get the content (porn) to publish on his site without first having viewed the content on his computer when its illegal to have such content?:rolleyes:

    I exactly don't know what the laws are in India, but for my country, keeping personal copies of porn is legal. Distribution within the country is, however, illegal.

    The loophole in the law, however, is that there are no restrictions on distributing it online.

    So if indeed it is illegal to to even keep personal copies of porn in India, then you are in trouble, unless you want to play the "hide and seek game" ;). However, the argument is, if you don't tell anyone you have porn on your hard-disk, no one will know. Simple as that....

    You can host Sites in Indian companies itself,since 90% of Indian webhost companies have servers only outside India..A few Top notch Web hosting companies have Servers in Delhi.

    So Adult Sites are not a problem unless you share some Illegal/Child Porn/Copyrighted images etc.,
