Online Sovereign State (02:58)
Data Havens are the last bastion of true freedom on the web. Sealand, an abandoned World War II gun platform later recognized as a principality, hosts servers for customers who want no government oversight.
The server company allegedly hosts numerous spammers and hackers. Believed to be situated in a Cold War bunker in Holland, Prowse attempts to enter the facility. A face scanner denies him entrance; garbage and empty server racks indicate an occupant.

Prowse tours the facility with Raymond Bierens and Roy Janson heads of OBE-One— they deny they are CyberBunker.

Amin Hamid and Kai Jern explain how bulletproof hosting companies are nomadic in name and location— most crimes perpetrated are fraud and phishing. Prowse travels to The Hague and visits Ecatel, but is turned away at the door.
The Jester (02:00)
Prowse talks to a patriotic activist who takes down jihadist websites and hacks into the email of Iran's president to prevent the use of emails to recruit, radicalize, and train online. A successful bulletproof company will disperse information across several sites and countries so that if one facility is breached, its customers will not lose data or speed.
Reliable Hosting Without Censorship (03:41)
