German Web Host

Our company has finally gotten a German distributor, and we would like to build a German only website (mycompany.de). Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a single web host that has their servers located in Germany, and ALSO has English versions of their pages.

Any recommendations?

Also, I know there are services around that will act as an agent in that country so I can register a .de address, but I can't seem to find those either. I could list our distributor as the admin contact, but we don't want to lose control of the domain name.

Any ideas on how a non-german speaking person can register and host a .de?

Thanks!

Neo, you can register a .de domain in your name, but need a local person as admin-c. Some of the smaller hosting companies even offer this service for free.
here some starting points:

Thanks Thomas!

Couple things though..

but need a local person as admin-c. Some of the smaller hosting companies even offer this service for free.

Could you name a couple companies that even offer it? I'm not worried about getting it for free necessarily, but I can't even find anyone that offers it. Again, my severe lack of German language skills are probably stopping me.

Also, does anyone know if by naming a local person as admin-c, will they have access to the account? Or ability to make changes?

Thanks!
