ADULT Hosting - A Few Specific Questions

Nov 13, 2008

I had a few specific questions about ADULT hosting. I've been refining an idea I had for an adult website after getting some good feedback from this site, but I had a few specific questions I still need addressed. If you think this forum is the wrong place to be asking about this, do you happen to know of any other forums that specialize in discussing adult web hosting?

My general plan is to set up a video-based adult site that charges people money (a monthly fee) to see the premium content. I have a general idea about my start-up investments, but not necessary how much each would cost, and I'm trying to put together a budget. If anyone could help me fill in some of these blanks I would really appreciate it!!

I'll need a lawyer to set up site disclaimers, contracts, etc. - I assume this will be a few hundred dollars - does this sound correct?

I need to build the site- this is where I'm not sure about costs. The general specifications are like any other adult website - users pay to register - so I would go with one of the established companies that deals with secure online credit card transactions - any ideas which ones are good? How much do they normally take?

Users then can watch the videos, rate and give feedback. Since I don't really know any programming besides HTML, I'm assuming I need to hire someone to build the site and make sure it is secure. I'm also assuming this will be the most expensive part of the investment. Can someone give me some estimates about this? Are there general templates online that I can use that will save money? Is guru.com a trusted place to hire programmers? Is this something I could do myself without spending years learning a new programming language? How DO I make the site secure, and how can I keep people from stealing my premium content and posting it on other sites? I'm obviously trying to make this as cheap as possible without sacrificing all the quality - but unfortunately I have thousands to invest and not tens of thousands (i don't know if this will be a problem or not).
Also - hosting. I was told that a popular adult video site will cost a fortune in bandwidth. If I'm charging a monthly membership fee I'm hoping that can offset the costs. Can someone recommend good, scalable adult video hosting - and give me a general idea about what kind of server I need, how much bandwidth etc. I figure since this is membership driven I can start small and then increase bandwidth depending on how many members join, so I'm always making a profit. Does that sound realistic?

Finally, can adult pay sites still make money today? Not just a couple bucks here and there, but enough so I can eventually quit my day job?

The wonderful feedback I got here before helped me to reshape my ideas, and now I'd like to begin the next steps. Thank you all very much again for ANY help you can give me - I sincerely appreciate all the generous, knowledgeable people that make this forum a pleasure to visit!

I need another server upgrade, hosting package upgrade.

I'm looking into cloud hosting because of the scalability.

What's the best

#1 Reliable
#2 Great Support
#3 Affordable

cloud hosting company.

Rackspace seems to be great on #1 and #2 i guess but #3 they are a bit more expensive. I know someone is going to say "you get what you pay for", but thats why i put Affordable at #3.

Dedicated Hosting, Sites And Questions

Nov 13, 2006

Hi I've never worked with a dedicated host, and I was considering going with hostgator, because they provide managed hosting and cPanel, which I'm fond of.

This is not for my own sites, but for someone I work for as a programmer/webmaster. He has asked that I make the decision on this, even though I've basically advised against it, due to my lack of experience with dedicated hosting.

I've also looked at lunarpages, doesn't seem to be much different than hostgator. Here are links to their pages...

http://www.hostgator.com/dedicated.shtml

http://www.lunarpages.com/dedicated-hosting/

Does anyone have experience from either of these? I don't think the sites hosted on the server are going to be particularly high bandwidth sites (I don't really think they even need a dedicated host) ... do you think we'll be okay with a single 2.8 Ghz processor?

Also, does anyone have any advice as far as the number of sites hosted on the server? He wants to move ALL of them to the same server. Any thoughts on whether or not this is a good idea?

I know I've asked a lot here but I'm really getting into new territory. If you can provide any input on ANY of the above items, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Semi Adult Web Hosting

Aug 2, 2005

I have never worked with an adult oriented website before, so I really don't know a whole lot about the arena. I might be making a web site for an exotic dancer that may contain explicit photographs (no sex, topless images probably). This is more of a homepage, not a pay for membership adult site.

Anyways, whenever I have signed on with a host in the past they all seem to have the uniform user agreement that states no pornography, warez, etc. Would this type of thing be considered a pornographic web site? If so, are there any hosts that provide affordable shared web hosting that allow this, or would I be forced to get a dedicated server or something?

Just trying to get a feel for how much of a pain in the butt this could end up being, I might decide not to do it if this will require some expensive specialty hosting. Any advice would be appreciated.

Best Adult Hosting Site!?

Jul 28, 2008

I'm after some hosting for some adult content (nothing too bad!) as my current host won't allow it (no big loss, they're atrocious anyway)

Preferably something UK or US based, not too bothered either way as long as it's fairly reasonable in price and has a good service.

Not sure about bandwidth limits, to say the site is in it's early stages would be an understatement, but something flexible would be good.

Decent Adult Hosting?

Aug 2, 2008

Does anyone know of a decent adult hosting provider thats not going to give me any problems?
i've been with cirtex for 1 month and in that month i've had my account suspended due to high cpu usage.. and the sites mysql has been down due to disc space full cos they didnt clear the tmp folder.. all in the space of one month..

My site gets currently 4,000 uniques per day with around 13,000 page views..

its a tube site however the videos are embedded from another site so bandwidth is relativly low at around 4gb/dayso if anyone else runs a similar site i'd like to know who you host with and if you get many problems.

Why Country Specific Hosting Is Important For Marketing

Jul 3, 2009

Something not many people know when choosing a web host is the importance of choosing a host that will aid your marketing and your websiteís niche. This can be very important if you are running an online store depending on the geographic region you are focusing on. So first letís start with an explanation of why this all depends on who your siteís visitors will be.

Most internet connections are very fast but it still matters where the physical server is hosted in terms of speed. If I was starting an online store focusing on customers in Texas the site is going to server faster to people from Texas if it is in Texas. Similarly if you are building a site aimed at United Kingdom residents you donít want the server to be in the United States or even Europe in some cases. By hosting in a location near your customer base you are speeding up their access time to the server. This might not seem like a big deal but in a number of studies the importance of a quick loading page can mean a big difference in the number of conversions. Or if you are hosting a game server ping time will obviously matter when you are shooting your next zombie.

In terms of marketing it is also important in the eyes of Google and other search engines. One of the many factors for knowing whether they should rank you in a country specific search engine is dependent on your IPís location as well as your domain name ending. By using a host in the country your site is serving you is sending one more indication to Google of where you should be ranked.

We have had plenty of customers at UK2 who came to us from USA based hosting and after they started using our servers which are in the United Kingdom they found that conversions increased and they had lower shopping cart abandonment rates. Which when you are running an online store are two very key factors. This is also why we offer our customers dedicated server hosting in both the United Kingdom and USA, we want to be able to give them the best of both worlds.
