Web Host needed
« on: July 24, 2002, 07:16:59 PM »
I'm looking for an INEXPENSIVE webhost strictly for the purpose of hosting my image gallery.  So of course, I want one that FULLY support all the features (no SAFE MODE, latests PHP, mySql etc...)
Also, this host MUST allow adult content.  My website is not a "hardcore adult porn site" but does contain plenty od adult works, humor, and pictures.  The gallery would thereefore also contain these things.  (nothing illegal of course -child porn etc..)

They must be reliable (downtime is NOT acceptable) and SPEEDY.
I've searched aroud already myself, but it's tedious to have to read all the fine print about adult ocntent, and then have to dig deep to find out if they run safe mode etc...  its very time consuming.

I won't need a whole lot of SPACE since nothing more than my gallery will be here.  I won't need any extra email, subdomains, ftp accounts or other perks  one might pay extra for.  I'm hoping this will keep the price down to under $10 a month.. I know it's easy to find such a host if you don't have adult content.  Once again I stress this isn't any sort of PAY for Porn fullout- hardcore porn site.

Anyhow, thanks in advance for sharing your findings.

I have not really found a host yet, as you can see here the replies have been pretty much nonexsistant.  
Here's what I need:
(2)MySql Database
Latest PHP installed
Image Magik installed and ready to run (NO SAFE MODE)
50megs of space (min)
15gigs of transfer/month.
I do NOT need any email features(other than needed by 4images) /webmail, subdomains,or  FrontPage support.
full CGI would be a nice option, but needed now.

I expect a speedy, stable, secure server.  If all goes well, my need for tech support will be minimal..

See   http://www.digitalsmackdown.com/homegallery/   to see a working example of what content is expected.

Right now, the whole gallerytakes up less than 10 megs..so my asking for 50megs is simply a little planning ahead..I can get by with less for now.

I've checked out your plans..  Your site shows plan C with 1 SQL database, for $10/month.  I would like at leaast 2 databases.  And I don't need 300megs of space, or the extra pop Email accounts or mail lists.  If you can ditch those extras and set it to 5 databses with 100Megs of space for now, for under $10 a month, I'm interested.
I'm also looking or a host that is willing to cut a deal in return for some banner advertising and good words.  Last month, the site had about 300,000 hits.  I currently have NO other banners/advertisers set up.  If putting one on a few pages shaved a handful of dollars off, I'd like to discuss this.

Ok, sounds internesting..

Can I also get a dedicated IP?
I have no need to register a new domain, and I'm not moving my current one, so I'll need this.

Well, after no further respone from that host,  I'm still looking...

Again, the key things I need here are:
BANDWIDTH (20gig + per month)
FULL support for 4hompeages script and ImageMagik!! (no safe mode!)
FrontPage Suport
Custom 404s
FTP access
75Megs+ space
Less than $15/month
Allow some adult content! (this is not a business /pay orn site..just has some adult humor and pictures in the gallery)

Certainly SOMEONE knows of a good place to go with?
My current host (echolima.com) is pretty solid, but they are getting too expensive as I keep going past my bandwidth limits (currently 30gig limit)
And they run safe mode, so my gallery is weak due to lack of thumbnails (and time )
I'd like to fix both problems (bandwidth and safe mode) by getting another host to place my gallery and a few select other pages/files that eat a lot of bandwidth to kinda balance the load.
