I have been looking for adult hosting services. Of the businesses I have found that do allow adult hosting, I have seen one stipulation. "Legal adult content". I'm not quite sure on what this means. Does it pertain to the obvious, like no child porn, bestiality, etc. Or is there legalities to the access of the adult content? Though I live in the US, I was not raised nor educated here, and thus not aware of the details here.
All I wish to host is a general content forum where my members can have a section to post 18+ pornography such as you would see in any regular adult video store. I plan to have this in an invite only section of the forum as to keep the content inaccessible to under 18 year olds. I believe this should be within the requirements of legal adult content.
Anyone who knows the details of the term "Legal adult content", could you please clear this up for me?
As far as hosts, ive been through hostgator which sucked.. not for the hostings in the fact i barely had any downtime, but for the outa nowhere ban/support they have. So i left that.. If they had better support id stick with them.
Moved on to nakedhosting... that site gets fustrating because every early morning their servers slow/stop for about 4 or 5 hours then back to normal.. their support sucks! Only tech support is ever online for live chat and ive only received a reply once from their ticket system outa the 4 times i tried getting support. Honestly i think theirs about 4 or 5 people running that site because i pretty much talk to the same guy on live chat everytime.. on top of that, everyones gone after 8pm+.. really, you wont get live chat or ticket support.. which further leads me to believe they have a small room of servers which 4 or 5 people run. Probably a family business who knows.. Dont pay attention to their 99% up time, most flat out lie.. but if your record your down times you do get a discount if you convince them its their fault..
anyway im looking for a reliable VPS host that does have decent support and uptime. Im not one to make alot of mistakes that need support, at most maybe 1 or 2 every couple months but most of the time i dont.. i just want a host that will be their when i do have one.
Price isnt an issue. Also it would be great if i could pay with paypal. Not a needed but would help start me off since i have to wait 3-4 days till it hits my account.
Okay, I keep seeing VPS (and dedicated for that matter) providers that say you have control over your box... and then forbid things like IRC, adult content, and proxies. Why? What is it about those three types of content that strike fear into the hearts of hosting providers?
I can see forbidding those on shared hosting accounts. The extra CPU and bandwidth required could really put a crimp on the other accounts. But with VPS and dedicated, you are paying for a portion of the CPU and bandwidth so why would the provider care what you do with them?
i got a adult blog(wordpress),sometime i will put some torrent files on my blog,i use lunarpages share host before,recently,traffic up to 3000uv/day,share host can't hadle it,so i wanna upgrade to VPS,lunarpages ask me 39.9$/m,just wanna know is there any other choice for me.
I am looking for a host for a small business. The client has requested that the host be completely free of any adult content. I usually use DreamHost but I am not sure how to check if they host any adult sites or not.
The site will be an online catalogue with shopping cart.
a customers wordpress blog is taking all the cpu on the server, i can't figure out what the issue here is... i've tried many my.cnf's and i can verify that it uses the my.cnf file.. so that hasn't helped.. i can only mv index.php test.php for now until i could figure out why all these hits cause lag. any recommendations?
i have already an dedicated server, but with an strong traffic limit, so i search webspace (filespace) for my thumbnail images, the space is only for the images, no php scripts or databases are needed just imagespace.
the hoster should tolerate adult content, and have no problem with 500gb bandwith per month. Paypal should be accepted as payment.
its important for me that the webhoster follow their offers and dont kick me if i use high bandwith....
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.
VPS type package ok, need around 30GB HDD space, and maybe 200GB badwith per month, << provide some recommendations >> (dont ask for my budget!). Prefer live chat support 24/7, and need to setup/ transfer site from existing host.
