    Well guys. I want to make an anime site similar to Uanime ( I can`t post the page because I`m a new member but I beg you to take a look so you can understand what I want ) . The thing is I do not have the money for expensive themes or widgets and I plan to do it in wordpress as I lack the knowledge of html code. I know I`ll have to buy a domain name and a host but I can`t really buy anything else as sallaries are quite low for students in my country and I allready need to work for like 3 weeks to pay for the domain and the host for 6 months. I plan to use hostgator as it gives me a fair price and unlimited storage(I plan to upload only HD vids directly from my computer)
    So, do you guys know any good themes or plugins? I`ve tryed many things but my post are always big and I would need like a whole screen for only 5 anime titles. I want them to be neatly organized in series like : episode 1, episode 2 and so on... And if I get the damn next episode button to work automatically I`ll pray for the whole earth -.- .... also if I can get a similar organizing method like the one on the site I gave you with the alphabetical order app that would be great. I know I`ve asked for many things but I`ve been searching for days and I can`t really find anything usefull. I`m continously practicing on a free host but when I get the hang of it I`ll buy a domain and host and start from scratch.

    first thing to note is that host gator is not unlimited. You have a certain amount of nodes that you can fill. You would be better starting with a site for one of the anime, that way you can get a good feel for what would be involved in a larger upscale. Your plan sounds bad though, as you havn't taken into account the problems that will pop up.

    I`m new to this. The thing is me and my friend have a group on facebook with over 5.000 active users and I tought why not make a website so we can watch anime on it. It could also be monetized as we have 5000 active users ready to use our site and a few banners here and there would keep the site up and running, I think:-?.
    If hostgator is not good what should I use? I need something to post at least 10.000 videos on it, or else it will be outclased by the other sites. There are animes that have over 700 episodes so, yeah I know it will take allot of time but I won`t be the only uploader.(yet I need an easy interface to teach the others how to use it)

    Another source of traffic for you maybe.

    hostgator is a good one for sure, but there are other hosting plans with kickass deals.
