    I am looking to start a porntube website. I figured i can start with a vps then if it gets busy move to a dedicated server.

    Would this vps from hostgator be good enough at the start?

    The snappy 2000

    2 cores, 2gb ram, 120 gb space, 1.5tb bandwidth. It's only 89.95 a month so i find the price good enough for me to afford but not break the bank.

    What advice would you give me? I dont want to get something too overkill.

    Will you be hosting the videos directly on the VPS itself or will you just be embedding videos from other tube sites?

    Depending on how many videos you plan on uploading, I suspect that the first bottleneck you'll face is either the disk space or bandwidth. However, as long as the rest of the VPS is properly optimized (Apache/Nginx and MySQL) then you should not have a problem hosting the website on the VPS until you gain traffic.

    Not sure if there is a specific reason why you want the VPS with Hostgator or not, but if you do not have a preference then you could also shop around a bit before ordering. With the $89.95 budget, you should have no problem getting a better deal as far as configuration goes.

    It would probably be a while until i uploaded more than 1000 videos. Its just a hobby so im not planning on uploading millions of videos.

    Not too much of a reason. Just used them in the past and had no problems with them. And Canada hosting seems really expensive.

    Chances are you won't get enough traffic to matter - but if you're successful in promoting the site and get a lot of traffic, you'll get shut down in a jiffy for too much bandwidth usage.

    A dedicated server is what you require;

    (2) Quad Core Intel Xeon 2.26GHz 24 GB RAM 1 TB SATA2 /30 subnet 100 Mbps Unmetered £55.90 order

    It depends if you have a lot of visitors. If you have, then your account will probably get suspended for using too much server resources. If that happens, i suggest rent your own dedicated server.

    Some of you didn't even read what OP wrote. He is buying a VPS with set amount of bandwidth.

    Yes, Hostgator will gladly host your porn site. But for same amount of money, you could probably get a better deal at leaseweb.com,
    for example QuadCore Xeon, with 4 GB of RAM, 4x500 GB SATA and 100 MBps unmetered (50 EUR).

    And with leaseweb you can choose your server's location.
