I'm one of those people.
of course there is - that is the basic of the DNS system, you wouldn't be able to adress a site if you couldn't find its physical servers.First of all, how do you know who hosts the site and who is responsible? Is there a way to check?
Regardless of how hard they are to crack, games will get pirated as long as they are any good. However, piracy negatively affecting sales is a myth and even though multiple surveys and researches have been done regarding piracy, they have reached the conclusion that there is absolutely no proof that piracy negatively impacts sales (in fact one of them was conducted even by EU and since the result did not fit its agenda, it did not publish it).i know people will find it annoying but, at least you can save an amount of potential income. You may find it surprise but, somehow Luna Sanctus of Mushroom had been posted on pirate sites not even passed of 24 hours after he released it on Steam.
I believe it would affect on his game's rate of sale more or less
Actually, the majority of AAA games get cracked after days-weeks. Only few make it past a month.Also I agree about DRM: nobody loves them, and I think they aren't necessary for indie games. If we're talking about a big AAA game from a big company, now that's another story because even running the DRM only the first 6 months can save A LOT of revenue.
