Needs of an adult web host

By Staff


I’m in the adult business and I’m looking for a dedicated server for our promotional tools, which include hosted picture galleries, which get a ton of traffic. Currently we do around 20-25 mbps at any given time, but we do have spikes to around 30-35. Our plan is to be at around 35 mbps in six months, but not go much beyond that. What is right for me? I emailed one hosting company yesterday, they got back to me this morning and I immediately got back to them to catch them during working hours (and about 3 hours of time before the end of the business day in their country), but I didn’t hear back. If this is how the sales team handles things, I’m not sure I want to trust their support department, so I’m shopping for other companies. I was thinking Dual Xeons with at least 4 GB of ram and at least 250 GB (x2 in RAID 1) HDs. What do you guys recommend? Is anyone into adult in here? Who worked? Who didn’t?

I run a site on a dedicated server, main reason for this is because I was stealing all the bandwidth for other sites when I was on a shared server, so the guys I get it from had to move me. Now I get a not bad price, and a good amount of bandwidth traffic. My site has over 5000 members, and gets around 100 new members a week (was a bit crazy with 12,000 at 1 point, but we lost a year of the database) Anyway, my providers keep asking me if I am looking to put Direct admin on my server, so that I can add my Domains, and even resell if I wanted to. Now the adding my own domains Idea is good, cause the way I do it the now is a pain in the ***, my email admin is ok, but would prefer something easier. But I am just looking for advice on how easy DA is to use on a dedi, and would I be able to control what sort of bandwidth, and space I gave out to others with ease? Regards Colin
