    After reading a bunch of successes on BHW I decided to create a site where people watch videos. Im looking for a cheap but fast reliable host where I can upload videos and Embed them onto my website with a Embed code. Does anyone know a website and can assist me in setting it up? I would really appreciate it. Im very new to the internet world and I hope in a month or 2 I can share my success story with you guises help :)

    DigitalOcean cloud hosting might be good, you can set up wordpress and upload to the digitalocean servers and then grab the file code and post it on your other websites.

    If your creating a video host like youtube where people can upload, you might want to purchase dedicated servers for it.

    No Its not a upload site like youtube. I just upload my own videos. essentially Im creating a porn website that differs mine from everyone else's. I checked digital ocean cloud out and its pretty cool. I might just go with it. I was looking at hostthename , but I don't think I can host videos? And do you recommend any other cheap fast hosting sites? Thanks for your help btw!! :)

    Honestly hosting videos+cheap doesn't go together. I'm not sure what your budget is, but if you're planning on uploading a lot of videos and getting views shared hosting for 5$ won't cut it. You'll need at least a VPS.

    Hostwinds is a great service, I believe the owner has an account here at BHW. If you're uploading porn why not just upload to redtube and embed the videos? If it's not porn you can upload to dailymotion,youtube, or vimeo and embed the videos.

    because I don't want people to just go to red tube instead of my site to find the videos. I will loose traffic you know "/
