How do you choose a hosting provider for porn that lives up to expectations? Hosting for an adult site must be able to guarantee excellent performance in terms of content loading speed, security, but also the space available.

In this article we will analyze what are the considerations to make when choosing a hosting provider for porn. We will see what are the essential features for an excellent service and what must be taken into consideration in the specific case of a porn video site.

Let’s start by seeing how to orient ourselves in the choice.

Porn Hosting

How to choose a web hosting service for porn: preliminary considerations

If you are looking for adult hosting services and, in particular, are interested in web hosting for porn, you must first know that not all providers accept to host adult content on their servers.

The first thing to do, therefore, is to restrict the search to the providers that allow you to host this content. You can check the sites or ask for information by contacting the provider directly.

In our case on SupportHost we admit porn sites on VPS cloud hosting and dedicated servers.

We will come back later to talk about the choice of plan, let’s now look at what other considerations are necessary, from a regulatory point of view.

In any case, when choosing a hosting service for porn, it is not enough for you to just choose a hosting service that allows you to create an adult site alone. In addition to the considerations that we will see shortly regarding the resources necessary to have a performing porn hosting plan suitable for receiving large volumes of visits, there is also another thing that you must keep in mind and that is the legislation.

In particular, it is necessary to keep in mind two important concepts:

  • do not upload copyrighted material to the servers that you do not own the rights to
  • do not upload illegal material to the servers.

In these cases you can go against the removal of the contents and suspension of the site, in addition to the possible criminal consequences.

How to choose a web hosting service for porn: the characteristics

Depending on the type of porn site you want to create, you need to take into consideration the characteristics that the hosting provider will have to have.

Specifically, for example for a site where you will only embed videos or embed image galleries from other sites, you will need less space, less bandwidth and fewer resources in general.

A separate discussion, however, must be made for the hosting of porn videos. If you want create a porn site where you will host a lot of high definition videos, you will need a plan with unlimited traffic and a lot of space available.

Taking into consideration that the needs of a porn site change, therefore, based on the type of site we are going to create, let’s see what are the main characteristics that a porn hosting should have.

We will also make specific considerations in the case of hosting porn videos.

Hosting service for porn: performance

A web hosting service for porn must guarantee excellent performance for our website. This means that we cannot make a choice focused on saving, but we must move towards a service that can guarantee adequate resources for the site we want to create.

Bandwidth and speed

Specifically, especially in the case of a video site, but also for image galleries, you will need a large bandwidth to ensure an excellent loading speed and therefore an optimal experience for visitors.

A slow site with videos or images that load too slowly will cause all visitors to flee.

Space

Here we should also open a parenthesis regarding the space available. A site that has to host a lot of multimedia files, such as high definition videos, will need more space than a site that does affiliations and embeds videos hosted by other sites.

Uptime

Another key factor to consider is uptime. Uptime indicates the time a server is up and reachable, so it reflects the time your site will be reachable.

Uptime can never be 100%, but it needs to get as close to it as possible so that your site is always online and there are no interruptions.

In our case on SupportHost we guarantee you 99.99% uptime for the cloud infrastructure, therefore for the VPS cloud plans, and 99.9% for web services and dedicated servers. You can check the guaranteed uptime for each plan on the pages of the individual services.

Hosting service for porn: security and privacy

In a web hosting provider, other important factors to consider are privacy, security, and the ability to have backups for your site. Let’s see these features one by one.

Safety

Sites hosting adult content, perhaps even more so than other sites, may be more exposed to attacks that undermine the site’s security. This means that they could become the target of DDOS or malware attacks.

For this reason, another important aspect to consider when choosing a web hosting service for porn is to make a choice based on security.

Porn Hosting Security

Does the provider monitor the site frequently? Does it run anti-malware scans? Do you use adequate security systems?

These are all assessments to do to avoid suffering attacks that can make you find yourself having the site down.

Remember that maintaining the security of a site is also the responsibility of whoever manages the site. This means, for example, adopting the https protocol and installing a valid SSL certificate on the site.

With SupportHost the Let’s Encrypt SSL certificate is included with all plans. Installation and activation take place automatically, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

In some cases you may want to use one of the SSL certificates for a fee.

Privacy

In addition to security, privacy is also another element that should not be underestimated. When you register a domain, details about the name and any contact information provided are published in the Whois database.

Porn Hosting Personal Data

The information within this database is public and therefore accessible to anyone. Among this information is the domain expiration and the details of the holder. You can consult them with different tools including the ICANN research.

You can choose to obscure this data with a service of Whois Protection.

In some cases, providers make this service available at an additional cost. SupportHost provides the service for free with all domains. It is enough for you register the domain and enable Whois Protection.

Backup

It is important to have a backup copy of your site so that you can restore your files and database if something goes wrong.

If you choose one of our cloud hosting managed VPS plans, you will have free daily backups available. In fact, we make a complete copy of the server and keep the 7 most recent copies.

Furthermore, for VPS cloud hosting services and dedicated servers we also provide an additional service of disaster recovery. In this case there is a monthly renewal and the cost of the service depends on the space needed.

Hosting service for porn: support

In a hosting service, the importance of support is critical. If you have a problem you need to be able to count on a support service that is available 24 hours a day and has fast response times.

Furthermore, if you choose a dedicated server or a cloud VPS plan you have two alternatives: an unmanaged service that requires experience in server management and maintenance operations, or a managed server which does not require skills and therefore all technical management is entrusted directly to the provider.

Porn Hosting Support H24

With SupportHost, in addition to being able to count on guaranteed support within 8 hours, you can also count on our proactive support. All services are monitored every 5 minutes, so we are able to solve problems even before our customers contact us.

Hosting service for porn: which plan to choose

How to choose a web hosting service for porn? The choice of the plan, as we anticipated before, depends on the type of site you want to create and therefore on the needs of the site, as well as on the number of visits you expect to receive.

Let’s take the example of a site that embeds videos or image galleries. In this case, the resources needed are less than those of a site hosting the videos on the server.

You can therefore start from a VPS cloud hosting plan and then want to move to a dedicated server when traffic increases.

Advantages of a cloud hosting VPS plan

If you are already familiar with shared hosting, check out our articles to find out what the differences are between cloud vs shared and what is the cost of a cloud plan.

Scalability is certainly one of the advantages of a cloud VPS plan. With our cloud VPS plans you can easily switch between plans with an upgrade that takes just a few minutes to ensure there are no interruptions.

Porn Hosting Server Status

Furthermore, with all our VPS cloud hosting plans you will have a dedicated IP available and with the transition from one plan to another you will keep your IP address.

Web hosting service for porn video content

As we said, for a site that will host high resolution videos it is better to use a dedicated server. This gives you more resources and you have a plan with unlimited traffic.

The advantages of having a dedicated server also lies in the possibility of customizing the hardware configuration. This possibility is extremely useful in the case of a site that needs a lot of space available.

Porn Hosting Video Webistes

Specifically, in the case of a video site, you can therefore opt for the use of traditional hard drives in order to have a greater capacity available and to be able to reduce prices if compared to those necessary for a SSD hosting.

If you want to get serious or you already have a site up and running, then the ideal is to use a server cluster to host the videos and a cloud VPS plan to host the site.

Not sure which plan is best for your needs? Contact our support and we will help you choose the best solution.

Conclusions

We have seen what are the elements to consider when choosing a hosting service for porn.

As we have seen, specific considerations must also be made based on the type of site you want to create.

In any case, however, security, availability of support, uptime and speed are essential characteristics for a hosting service for porn that is able to guarantee excellent performance to our site.
