Is it legal for my web application in Amsterdam droplet to contain links to illegal movie download links?

Hi, I run a website that indexes illegal files but DOES NOT host any files on the server. Would it be legal to host this website on Digitalocean?

Any feedback is appreciated.

  • Is it illegal to write on a wall info about where you can buy weapons/drugs(that you know are illegal)? You’ll just cause unnecessary trouble for yourself and the provider you are using..

  • I think you answered yourself. Yet read the terms of service for DO to truly be sure what you can illegally do.
