To me, no matter which country you host your site, you still have to watch the wording, not be explicit. Hosting sites often have Terms and Conditions that discourage advertising of a sexual nature.

I know. I've done my research babe. After all, it has affected me so I better know what I'm doing to stay afloat

So let’s say an SP’s website or a site like Terb or Leolist is registered and hosted in a country like the Netherlands where sex work is legal but operates in Canada, the Canadian laws apply? And could third party advertisers still be held responsible even if its hosted from a country where it is legal? The internet is a gray area because each country has different laws. I’m thinking of getting a .cc or .ch domain for my new escort website so just curious.

They affect some people and not others, depending on where and how they advertized. What really caused most of the recent trouble was US companies getting out of the SW-advertizing business or shutting down entirely. As you may have noticed, a lot of non-US companies have popped up in an attempt to grab their share of the market.

If your domain is outside the US, your hosting is outside the US, and you and any company you have to run things are outside the US... then US laws don't apply (unless someone whose services you use has other connections to the US, which can be hard to find out...). The point is that whether or not US laws affect you depends on your individual circumstances, and if they do it's possible to change that. But I'm sure you already know that.

This stuff is really tricky, because a lot of it hasn't been tested in court... and even if what you're doing is legal, defending yourself would probably be ruinously expensive. That means that the threat of prosecution is a very effective tactic; there doesn't have to be a reasonable chance of a court actually finding anyone guilty for it to work.

If a website is hosted overseas, then it operates under the laws and jurisdiction of that country. And the domain is administered by the country that owns *that*, so nobody outside that country can do something like seize the domain (e.g. the US can't do a damn thing about a .ca domain itself). But if a Canadian individual or a Canadian company set up a website with a foreign domain and hosting, which is clearly aimed at a Canadian audience... can they be prosecuted in Canada? Could such a prosecution succeed? We just don't know. All we know is that they haven't been, yet.

Getting a domain and hosting in separate, SW-friendly countries might well be a prudent move... if nothing else, it gives you peace of mind.
