    Suggestions and opinions for shared hosting for an old group of adult domains?

    Hi all, I have a group of about 50-70 old adult content domains sitting on a shared account somewhere, my old host provider sold his accounts to a new company, I don't like the brutal slowness of the new database server, I want to move them to a new shared account with better technology.

    None of these are anything illegal, just good old fashioned legal xxx hardcore.

    I have a testing account at crocweb, I asked them if they would take an adult account because I like their technology - they said no, the LiteSpeed license does not allow them to host adult content.

    I guess my second choice to ask might be hawkhost, I also have an account there, it's a solid shared account, so since I want to move these in the next three weeks, they seem a possibility.

    Does anyone know wether hawkhost will also say "no, no adult content"?

    And - this is my main reason for posting - does anyone have experience and opinions on other good modern hosts for shared accounts that take adult, with the fastest new technology possible?

    yeah since like cubicwebs pointed out they're "hawkhost" powered by litespeed they won't be able to host the adult content.

    And any host who uses litespeed and doesn't have any plans without it won't be able to host adult content.

    Before signing up with any host you best bet to read their terms of service to make sure and see if you can host adult content. Most Litespeed host mainly all won't allow adult content because it's against their Litespeed license. Ask hosts if you can host the domains before signing up with them. Sounds like you need a recommendation to a adult host I don't know of any but may find some by checking out the shared hosting offers in the get main page bottom if the forum it's tittled '/shared hosting offers'

    Well, I checked crocweb's TOS before asking, and all it seemed to contain was the standard:

    E) The hosting of material which is considered to be illegal in Canada is strictly prohibited. This includes child pornography, bestiality, hate speech, scam sites, phishing sites and any other material which is deemed illegal. All infractions and or suspected infractions will be vigorously investigated and may result in immediate termination of service.
    Boilerplate, pretty much. Let me do a site: search.

    No, google site:crocweb.com searches for adult, prohibited, content,and porn don't bring up anything. So, I wasn't an idiot for asking, at least, lol.

    Shame, that litespeed is nice.

    When I do the same searches at hawkhost, and filter out the forum spam, I get a slightly odder result. This old entry is in teh knowledge base - maybe pre litespeed and not updated?

    https://support.hawkhost.com/index.p...sites--content

    ... and a few old forum entries, saying allowed.

    the hawkhost acceptable use policy is also boilerplate, and looks old, possibly.

    I am doing some searching and reading on the other possibilities, but if anyone else has an opinion on the fastest available adult shared hosting, I would love to hear it.

    Right now these domains are stuck on mojohost, and the database server is sick slow. The economic profile of adult has shattered, so they don't make much profit, but I can't accept an adult shared that behaves like it's heavily throttled.

    Hawk Host, Arvixe and Certified Hosting each allow adult. Crocweb told you no, but I know they do allow adult. Arvixe has a forum where you can ask for recommended package hosting 50-70 domains. Best wishes!

    Litespeed would not enforce policy on hosting adult content. I don't think they can.
    You would have problem only when someone reports website to Litespeed.
