Web Hosts for WIITWD

  • Adult Hosts: a list of hosts, both free and pay, who are adult/kink friendly.
  • Cyberbest Their Adult Site Policy reads "OL Communications is a believer in free speech. We make every effort to allow webmaster's to promote their own beliefs. While the courts are not clear on the definition of pornography, they are very definite about pedophilia and bestiality. Outside of that, we leave it up to your judgment as you are responsible for your own site. As long as you're over 21, we will allow most subjects that are socially acceptable in your local jurisdiction. Please note: Web Sites that have adult content must have their own Domain Name or they will be hosted on our servers."
  • D/s Haven Free BDSM Hosting: "Due to the growing intolerance of BDSM sites by free webspace providers ... it is becoming more difficult for community members to build and maintain BDSM websites that express themselves and their lifestyles."
