    Currently i have been working with a affiliate porn company providing watchable video content to my users, these videos are hosted on the affiliate companies servers so all i am doing is redirecting my users to their websites at present.

    I am currently cutting a deal with my affiliate company which allows me to have better videos (longer length) but i would now need to download and host the video's on my own hosting space. So basically now users will log on to my site and watch the videos directly from my own hosting instead of being redirected to the affiliate site.

    I was looking for someone to advise me on the best solution for this? VPS? Dedicated?

    A little bit of information about the videos, one video will generally be around 8 minutes in length and will be in MP4 format with a average total size of 250mb. I will be posting about 2 videos on my site a day. At present i get about 9,000 a month unique visitors and obviously these visitors may watch multiple videos a day. Bearing all this in mind i would appreciate it if someone can help me, if there is a good service on here i am willing to roll with them as long as the function, reliability and price is good.

    Thanks

    if you're going to be uploading a large amount of video, i would definitely go for a dedicated server. you can find good deals for a quality server, and most companies will have the option to upgrade storage space upon request. If you plan on expanding a lot in the future i would definitely say that the dedicated will be the best for you.... Good luck! :)
