Mega Upload uses Carpathia Hosting Inc out of Virginia.
You could use other hosts, your bandwidth bill is going to be insane running a site like that though. And you will need to have strict DMCA policies, and at least show that you are implementing said policies.
Hi-endservers Llc is another company a good amount of file Hosters use.
I know YouTube used to utilize ServerBeach before the Google buy out.
If you have a good amount of money, any datacenter can take you in. But you need to make sure that you are strict about your policies.
that right... but talking about money you need to have everything plan before you start something cuz you will need to promote you company.. cuz if you dont have a good marketing you are gonna lose money
i would, like some other in this thread, look into datecenters in countries with liberal laws otherwise all your time and a quite some money will go to fighting DMCA complaints and stuff like that. Maybe Russia? Sweden?
Ahh nice, that has to be were i seen it at its been a while since i used Rapidshare. Its a shame how some folks abuse the service though, worked quite well for me in my PC repair tech days for backups etc..
