There are of course no absolutes. It’s a question of what you need the anonymity for and who is likely to be tracking you and their resources and determination etc. It’s difficult to completely put off a determined investigator with resources (much less a determined government with resources). That said, I would suggest doing a lot of research and picking a good web host in a European Union country, where privacy protections are stronger (especially after the EU Global Data Protection Regulation goes into force next month) and make sure you pick an EU country with stronger privacy laws and solid rule of law (Germany, Iceland, Switzerland..places like that). GANDI for example is a very good French company (I use them too for domain hosting, not web hosting). PS - As for DNS, Cloudflare (although American of course) recently launched their free privacy focussed DNS service to the public, free to use as a name server
