I am about to launch a website featuring video streaming. The web site will be in English, but the public will be European. In this sense, I am looking for a host which has a good and reliable network all over Europe.
My budget will be roughly 200€ / month in a first time. I am not necessarily looking for a cheap host, but for good network connectivity - primarily in Europe - as video streaming is something that just cannot wait.
Ideally, the server would be host in the UK (or the host would provide UK geolocalised IPs). I was thinking to OVH (because of the UK geolocalised IP features) and their European dimensions, but I am not sure about their network and equipments reliability…
Any good / established European host to recommend, guys ?
Thank you in advance.
It's a brand new project, so I don't expect to see huge data transfers in the first months.
I took a quick look on their offers, and to give you an idea, if I chose leaseweb I think I would go for a 10Mbps Unmetered server in a first time (then I could upgrade for a 50Mbps one if the project is successful).
For these servers, is it guaranteed bandwidth? And is it burstable? Finally, did you have the opportunity to test the leaseweb’s network performance in different European countries (especially France and Germny) ?
