I am hosting a few websites with my host, powweb.com (shared hosting). Now I am thinking to go for an adult xxx website, and my host is not ready to host an adult website with them, and thus, I am looking for a new host now.
1. I have very little knowledge about server management, as till now my shared host was doing everything, so I may need a host who offers a completely managed hosting, including backups, security, etc (just as a shared host would do).
2. I need a host that allows extreme adult contents.
3. The site will be a new one, but I am planning to go for offline marketing and hoping that I will get a good amount of visitors. Also the site will offer online movies. Taking these things into consideration, I am thinking that I may need a host that offers unmetered bandwidth.
I would like to get some tips from you guys, and if any of you know a good host, thanks for letting me know as well.
an recommendation on a shared hosting reseller with unlimited bandwidth(or atleast about 1500gb) and about 60-70gb harddrive? And preferably have servers in the US and europe, so i can pick one in usa and 1 in europe.
I got a question about shared unmetered bandwidth offerings. Currently we specialise in Dedicated Unmetered bandwidth offers but also offer metered.
we see an increase in demand for shared unmetered, with some minor guarantees of troughput. Much in the style of FDC servers. We are toying with the idea, to add a shared unmetered service thats overbooked 1/4 (100 mbit) or 1/6 (gigabit).
1. Are these overbooking rates reasonable? it looks like other companies roughly have these overbooking factors.
2. What kind of hardware should be bundle with such an offer? obviously its the bargain hunter category (no pun intended) that we would try to appeal to. Would that mean generally lower end servers like ATOMs?
i finally ordered my first dedicated server -previously i had a vps. I ordered at theplanet.com an unmetered 10 mbps - dedicated server but i am now confused, about how much bandwidth 10 mbps really represent?
10 mbps = 3.300 gigas? 20 mbps = means how many gigas? and the 100 mbps = means how many gigas?
I have a alexa 12.000 site with adult videos that is getting more and more traffic, thats why i decided to get unmetered but stupidly i thought 10 mbps was a lot of more than only 3.3 teras : ( so 20 and 100 mbps means how many gigas?
I am going to pay at ThePlanet for this 10 mbps unmetered connection $200 plus $ 109 for the server pentium 4 512 ram.
I've been reading a lot on this forum lately for a good VPS solution for me, but I've not been too lucky. Perhaps I am just too lazy to read all the posts.
At any rate, I've been with Alpha Red for about a year now and I feel I need to get something new (been having some problems with my mail server and speed, and since it isn't managed, I don't want to worry about fixing it myself). Thus, I am looking for a good VPS solution.
My needs aren't critical, most personal/business type sites, with some client hosting (clients can get very demanding traffic, however, as they will commonly get featured on Digg or YouTube). Because of the clients, I feel I need something clustered with redundancy. I tried out Mosso and just couldn't stomache the simplicity and lack of control.
Disk space would be around 10GB or higher, bandwidth around 500GB or higher (1TB would look amazing to me), and managed is really a plus. However, my budget is only around $150/mo (currently paying $139 for a very slow dedicated server).
I've been tempted to try MediaTemple, but recently looked at Zone.net's clustered VPS, and KnownHost.
opinion about what E-mail would be the best as a autoresponder and email campaign program. Something that can be configured to forward emails to different addresses from different recipients, automatic responces and scheduled email campaigns, all that kind of things. I would prefer an open source solution but if not any I would pay for that.
how to extract the text from an incoming email (through a script maybe) and input to another ougoing email?
I'm planning to operate my own dedicated server and bad news is I'm not much of a technical person. A friend recommends that I can use free Webmin as a front end (control panel) rather than paying for others. Do you think Webmin is suitable for newbie on this front?
I wanted to recommend and give a review of my service with Steadfast. Before I went with steadfast I read WHT almost everyday, looking at different hosts. Steadfast has exceeded my expectations by far.
I have a basic shared account but the speed and service make me feel like it is a dedicated account. My site is still in construction so I wont give the address but I have never experience any lag in loading or it ever being offline.
Whenever I submit a ticket, simply because I have a question, I have never waited more than a few minutes. It is genius. I think that Steadfast's business plan is to have the best equipment and software with the best service and reliability so that their customers stay and say good things about them. Sounds like a plan to me.
One of the things that I like the most is that Karl, owner and operator, actually knows what he is talking about is always happy to help.
I had never paid for hosting before or had a domain name and thought that the control panel and learning curve of hosting was gonna be hard but it is well organized and everything runs so perfectly that I almost never need to log into the control panel. A+++
(I would put the link to steadfast but the board says I don't have enough posts to link websites. Never heard of such a thing.)
