I am looking for a hosting company that allows adult contenet. This site will sex sex toys and videos, nothing ilegal in Canada or the U.S. There will be no streaming video or anything like that. Just pictures of the products. Looking for one that supports asp and access databases as I have the site alreadey made.
Haha, very true. All of the adult hosts I have ever seen are a lot more money, too.
I think a lot of providers do not allow it for many reasons. For instance, if I hosted a bunch of youth soccer league websites and some pornographic websites, and some tech saavy people from the youth site did a whois or reverse dns on the website, it would show up with all of these pornographic websites. I doubt anyone would be happy.
Also, there are legal and liability standpoints. You can never guarantee the ownership of any material on a website, but it increases even more with adult content. It can cause problems, versus no problems if you didn't host them in the first place.
Very good company: http://www.webhosting.cx/adult_hosting.html Good prices, it may seem a little cheap but its very stable and 99.9% uptime as well as nice features (its unlimitted emails now). They are very safe, nice customer service (altho its not usually 24/7). They've been in business for almost 7 years and host only on Xeon servers. They host over 1000 websites but they are on spread out computers so average load time per box is .50% and maximum is 2.36%, this is on a server thats been up for a year now. Do I sound like a commercial? Well thats because they are good. I totaly recommend them.
