    Hi,

    just had a chat with hostgator online support.

    It seems it's against their TO's to link to or embed copyrighted videos like the AVATAR :)

    So, say I want to host a site with embedded well known movies, what host can I use?

    Thanks,
    Erik creed

    Ok warez-host.com Sucks. Santrex sucks as well... those are the top two that have been used alot around here...Wrzhost is next on my list to try out.....ill let you know if its good... Try to get offshore hosting from a decent company so you know that atleast if it goes down you have some support.

    Hosting24.com has been good to me, a little slow but no complaints and no downtime :)

    What about stablehost? They're having a promo for 50% off life.

    Ok thanks guys, I just bought myself a subscription to StableHost.com and got myself a free domain as well.

    So I'm very happy with them so far, my new domain site went up within seconds :)

    I doubt one can find a cheaper and more reliable option.

    Stablehost doesn't allow videos like Avatar and Sherlock Holmes. Anyone know an offshore host that does?

    Why don't you search your competition. Do a whois lookup and find out who they're hosting with...
