Most web hosts provide shared web hosting by default. By ‘shared web hosting’ we mean that your website is being hosted on a server that hosts other websites too. For a basic website with limited bandwidth requirement and server space this is a preferred option to go for.
For an adult website, on the other hand, one should go for dedicated web hosting because if you host an adult website, then you’ll buttplug obviously be storing hundreds of images there. The traffic will be huge (at least compared to non-adult websites) and hundreds of visitors will be downloading/loading the images, consuming lots of bandwidth in the process. Besides, if you host an e-commerce adult website where your visitors have to pay a subscription fee to download images and movie flicks, you’ll need a dedicated server to avail the secure server facilities.
CO-LOCATED ADULT WEB HOSTING
You may feel apprehensive about leaving your crucial data (images, movies, credit cards, email addresses) on some one else’s web host. One option is to maintain your own server data center, which can be very costly and most adult webmasters cannot afford it. Besides, it is not even sensible to incur so high a cost unless you are running a mega e-commerce website.
Such a requirement can be solved by having a co-located server. With co-located servers, your hosting company connects your hardware to the Internet and provides you with rack space, a secure environment to store your server in, and technical support. On your part, you need to provide the company with the actual server, maintenance and software in order to host your adult website on your co-located server. Co-located servers generally give you more control over your hardware without having to worry about vandalism, hacking, theft or connectivity outages.
There are some web hosting companies that have issues with hosting adult content. Prior to booking the server space and uploading your website, you should make it clear to your web host that you’re planning to host an adult website on their server.
