foreigner in Korea needs web hosting english support
I just came across this forum searching in yahoo.
sorry I do not know much about computers and internet
I am trying to make a phpbb forum mainly for my friends
to communicate and share files (large files) and gallery too
searched in hosting offers but could not find any company offering host in Korea. there are millions of hostings in korea but can't sign up with them . very complicated . Can't understand why I need to give them a copy of my passport and id cards to sign up for a simple hosting , on the other hand they do not have English support at all. this makes me crazy. tried to even call some of them but communication is a big issue. I am very frustrated please help me find one. they need to be in Seoul Korea as My files need to have fast download and upload within Korea.
thanks I know there are so many of them but as I said I need it to be in south korea only in Seoul
all my visitors are going to be in Korea and they exchange large files 1 gig or more
I do not care about the hosting fees as long as they have good english support and control panels
thanks any way
I think there is a law that requires the passport or id of users on the internet in Korea when registering on certain websites. If this is true, then every host in Korea will require you to provide a passport or id number.
The rules there are very serious as far as I can see. But why don't have a look at SG web hosting companies. They do have English support team. And that would be useful for you to look over their offers
I donīt understand why donīt you use a US hosting company ?. Or you have to have a local support in Korea ?.
IIRC a lot of Korea has fast connections (10/100M+) but mostly within country, bottlenecking as soon as it leaves the country.
If they are going to exchange 1GB+ files constantly it's much better to keep it local
I had a hosting in US downloading and specially uploading big files was slow for my Korean users. the biggest problem they had was uploading.my users are basically in Korea and have to download and upload files I am fine with servers here.
