Hi all. I am new here and new to hosting a website. I am not really happy with my current hoster. Their servers are extremely slow even with pictures and onMouseOver images.
Due to the fact that my site has movie clips and music and a very special focus I am looking for a very specific hosting plan/company. What I am looking for is (Sorry for the long read):
*) Would prefer to deal with just one company for domain registration and hosting but this is not essential
*) Must have php and mySQL
*) I would like a large amount of disk space (looking for more the 1GB to start off with) to hold my movie clips and music
*) Large monthly bandwidth because of movie and music content but also I envision a large number of people comming to my site
*) Servers must be fast for uploads and downloads to handle movies. My current hosts company cant even handle images fast enough.
*) My current budget is around $10 a month for a trial period to test your server speed and also until my site can make enough money to upgrade to higher plans.
*) Would also like to hear from specialised streaming server hosting companies
*) Must provide all the other basics such as emails, domain and page forwarding, phpMyAdmin, etc
*) I do not want to deal with resellers of hosting plans
Any advice on how to get movies to be viewed faster for the client side would also be greatly appreciated
Sorry again for the long read
Hope to hear any suggestions soon
BTW no my site is not involved in piracy what so ever
