    Hello to anyone reading this, i've recently bought myself a pretty good domain and put together a logo for a porntube site, i've decided to go with adultscriptpro, i feel its going to be best for me, i was just wondering if there is anyone out there (i saw a few older topics, but due to my 15 posts i can PM anyone who replied for help) who'd be willing to help with experience with Linux? i know windows based web servers but i'm kinda new to this whole thing, also i've decided to buy a dedicated strait off the bat, 32 gig of ram, 2x 2tb hdd, intel xeon e3, 500mbps guaranteed bandwidth would this suffice, im looking to pay a few friends to constantly upload content, if i could get some input from some experienced people it would help a lot!

    Regards

    Matt

    You've probably made a HUGE mistake if you rented a naked dedicated and you have no idea about system/network administration. Now you have 3 choices you're facing:

    1) Get to learn the basics asap and ask for help if some points aren't clear
    2) Hire people to assure maintenance / configuration and security of your server on a monthly basis
    3) Just give it up and get back to a hosting VPS.

    What TayaX said above.

    Also be very careful what you host on your dedicated server. If you don't own the content, it's very risky to have it on your tube.

    Seems like you need to post on the Hire a Freelancer section. You'll get more replies there.

    I would never rent a server or vps to host tube videos. Once you start hosting, those people who are after copyrighted contents will be after you and you will keep getting emails and take down notices. I assume if they find out where your server is hosted, then they will write to the owners and your server will be shut down and you will just lose your money, without any chance for a refund since you will be breaking their TOS.

    I am in the business of creating tube sites and I do it for cheap, but I always recommend to my Customers to go with scripts/plugins which are just grabbing videos from big tube sites and never host it on their own. It will eat up plenty of bandwidth and your server resources won't be able to handle it. Much easier to grab the videos and let the big tube sites handle the streaming/hosting part.
    You won't even need a VPS, just get a good hosting for a $5-6/month and you will be good to go.

    Just my opinion, don't take me wrong here.

    Good luck with your journey! :)

    porn tube sites wont make any real money if you dont upload the vids yourself or host them on your own server the real money is in uploading videos with your sites watermark on it

    Exactly, Its pointless hiring an unmanged linux server if you dont know how to manage it yourself - or even if you do. So much easier to rent a VPS with a decent spec and one that is either managed or at least one that has cpanel installed and ready to go - this takes out all of the hassle of running the server itself so that you can work on the website itself.

    Also as said above, be careful if you are hosting all of your own content especially if you are re-uploading material from other sites, you need to remove yourself from that as much as possible.
