    Any suggestion to make a website / blog in a way that nobody can track you as the owner / author?

    And no, I don't plan anything illegal. Just plan to start a blog that might end up a bit controversial, to say the least and want to keep it away from my offline life...

    Getting private registration on your domain name is a good start. That way no one (except the authorities if they needed to) can look up who owns the domain on http://www.whois.net .

    like anti-matter said, get a private registration on your domain, and host it somewhere and install your blog software and just use your name as the site name or something... or call yourself X.

    You could also use a free hosting service, which will not require you to go through the domain registration process. You will not have your own domain name, but you will avoid ever having to give out billing or contact information. Sites like Blogger.Com, Wordpress.Com and even Hubpages.Com are a good place to start.

    Secondly, never post a message from your internet connection at home or work, since the IP address can easily be traced back to the original source. Your best bet is to compose material offline (in advance) then travel to an open Wi-Fi hotspot to actually upload the content. If you are really paranoid, I'd avoid any hotspot that has security cameras nearby and utilize software settings that generate a new MAC address for your laptop or netbook every time you log on.

    If you WERE doing something illegal, or at least something that you would never want anyone to ever be able to prove you did, be sure to never write any of this data to a hard drive, as computer forensics can easily un-delete anything on it. Your best bet is to compose everything using a "Live CD" Linux distribution (i.e. Ubuntu, Puppy Linux, Helix) that runs everything in RAM and then save the material to a cheap, disposable thumb drive or flash memory card.

    Obviously, avoid using your real name or e-mail address when registering on free hosting sites. Use the above techniques to get a throw-away address from Yahoo!, Hotmail, etc.

    I buy domains through namecheap, which not only give a great rate, but also include free whois private registration.

    Like diabetesreporter says (in great detail thanks smile ) if someone wants to try a little harder to find out who you are, they can do so from your IP address. Just to add to his excellent reply, you could mask your IP address by using a proxy server to access the internet. There are various companies who can do this.

    Type "hide my IP address" into Google and you'll get loads of hits. It will cost, but it may be worth it depending on what you are trying to do, or your level of paranoia.
