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.
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'm looking to get several dedicated servers, I don't require alot of processing speed or storage. And I'm not really picky about uptime, if the system is down for a few hours in a month its not a problem. What I need is alot of bandwidth. It needs to be quick and unlimited! What provider is going to give me the best deal?
I have been reviewing a lot of different data-centers and networks, and everybody seems to use different bandwidth providers. Is there any consensus on who the best (Top 5 maybe?) carriers are? According to WikiPedia.org, there are currently only 9 "true" Tier-1 carriers:
AOL AT&T Cogent Global Crossing Level 3 Verizon Business NTT Communications Qwest SAVVIS Sprint
Our data facility is located in an area that does not have a variety of providers. Our current provider is Verizon (formelrly MCI) and we are looking into buying a small building and build up a small data facility. Can any one recommend what is the best approach to ineterest more providers in our area or I am just going against the tide?
I'm trying to decide between two Frankfurt co-location providers and I'm not sure who has the better network when it comes to bandwidth and latency. Does anyone know what a good bandwidth provider is in Germany or what an unreliable one is? Or is there any difference?
1st Provider: NTT, Level 3, Interoute, Colt or BT
2nd Provider: TeliaSonera and Tiscali for upstreams at DE-CIX and KleyRex
I am seeing multiple definitions and seeing various posters argue and make claims against Tier 1 and who is/who is not and how many total, etc.. I do not think that there is consensus out there. Personally, I see more than 7 Tier 1 providers and know several other very good Tier 2 or Tier 1b providers.
Many on WHT claim that there are only 6 major Tier 1 providers, but I recently had a CTO who has been in the business since 1996 tell me directly that there are 9 Tier 1 providers. I know that some providers themselves claim to be Tier 1, but many of us “know” that they are not really Tier 1.
So, who are the best Tier 1 providers out there?
Who are the best Tier2 or non-Tier 1 providers?
Who are the best providers to/in Europe? …South America?
I'm currently doing close to a 25,000 daily unique average on my site and coming close to 12TB or monthly bandwidth transfer. With most DS Hosting services, I would usually be offered virtual rack solutions with multiple machines that would help raise my monthly limit but it would be greatly cost effective if I just stuck with one powerful server that offers unmetered bandwidth at a great price.
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.
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.
Is there a site that shows the different companies that offer free hosting? I have found a few but they never state if the company offers a free site creator or if the site allows you to use ithe free service for adult websites? Please help i need a site creator because i do not know html plus i want to make a adult site!
