    Diskspace 1 GB, Bandwidth 50 GB is enough for first month, then you can increase it

    (use companies that offer monthly billing cycles)

    What do you mean by host videos on your hosting? Like on your computer?

    I wouldn't go with what BestAdNetworks. I used KnownSRV to host porn for a while and for $27 / month you can get 50GB of disc space and 800GB of bandwidth.

    It really depends on what type of videos you're hosting. I hosted videos that were copyright protected and constantly got requests to take them down and I only every took one video down because the complaint went to my ad network who suspended my account. KnownSRV will throw a DMCA request in the bin and chuckle to themselves. Their servers are rock solid and I never had a problem with them.

    I used AdultScript Pro http://www.adultscriptpro.com/ which cost me about $199 and I believe there is a leaked copy of http://www.adultvideoscript.com/ on BHW but I could never get it to work. I've started porn websites before with nulled scripts and when the traffic started coming in, I found out that the script writer has put a backdoor in it that allowed them to suspend the website and my traffic went to shit. If you want to start a longer term website, just buy the script and then you get support and they can't just rip it out from under you.

    Make sure your website is niche related. You want to target specific keywords. You're not going to be able to make a porn tube complete for keyword like 'porn' and 'free porn' in under 10 years. Once you have high traffic, you can then expand out into large keywords. Don't make it too niche but, I personally found that the amateur niche had plenty of free content and people loved it.

    Find unknown models and run their names through Google Keyword Planner, sometimes you'll find a model that has 2k searches a month an the only competition is a bunch of white labeled cam sites, which you can outrank in no time. Record videos of her on the cam site, on look for them on forums.

    Make a blog on your website, like blog.pxoxrxn.com and write a 500 word article about some cam model if you're finding it a bit hard to rank for her name.

    That's all I can't think of at the moment. Hope that helps.

    - I mean to use hostgator server , shared hosting and upload the videos myself and then to move to dedicated when traffic start to increase seriously ... for $380 / month or something like that they have 1000 gb hdd and 25tb bandwidth ... the problem is that i dont have idea about the 25tb bandwidth / month ... approx how many users i can have simultaneously on the website for 25tb / month? the website traffic will increase fast , i expect to have at least 10k users daily after first month.... also all users can upload their videos as well.

    - I have a huge video & pics collection from brazzers.com :) all i need to do is to remove the logo from them
    - brazzers.com videos , japanese porn , amateur porn this ones I want to use mainly

    so the idea is that i dont want to start spending $50 / month and pretend to make profit .... i want to start spending from $500 to $1k monthly then to increase in time .... will not spend $ on traffic , i have my own ways to get targeted traffic (i used to sell traffic for about 2 years)

    Sorry, I forgot to put in my reasoning behind not starting out on shared hosting. When you have 50GB of movies, you'll have to then move that to your new host. Its not too bad, you can just scp -R everything and it may take a couple of hours. Personally, this is really shit and I hate doing it.

    I'm not sure about script recommendations but I will tell you, AdultScript Pro works like a treat have everything you could want. For $150 more you can buy their bootstrap theme and it will look sexy. I'm not using my copy of AdultScript Pro so I could maybe send you over a copy and you can test it out. Just don't share it an if you're going to use it make sure you pay them for their script, they put allot of time into helping their community an you want them to keep doing that.

    if you can give me your adultscript copy , i appreciate ... i only want to see how it works like ... and of course i'll buy the script when i start ... want to run this for long time not for few months and as I said before i'm not a dreamer who wants to spend few bucks and become rich overnight ... about hosting i found some dedicated servers will talk today with the hosters .... used them back in time to host some things and everything worked well , for example : IntelĀ® Core™ i7-2600 16 GB DDR3 RAM 2 x 3 TB SATA 6 Gb/s HDD 7200 Unlimited Bandwidth 1 Gbit OnBoard connected at 100 Mbit $86 / month + $86 initial setup

    Its not too bad, you can just scp -R everything and it may take a couple of hours. Personally, this is really shit and I hate doing it. ... lol dont tell me ... i just started to remove the watermarks from videos and i'm already bored :) at the moment i'm downloading tons of videos , organize them etc ... personally i dont think is hard to start a tube site , all you need is to work a lot . for some things i need to pay because i dont know how to do them , other ones i'll do them myself

    PM me your email address, I'll put in dropbox.

    Make sure you get offshore hosting that ignores DMCA. You'll regret having to listen to all DMCA requests, you'll get them even when you're not breaking any copyright.

    Also, make sure you get a Linux server and get shell access, your life will be so much easier. Do you know how to use Linux?

    Its hard to say, yes it can be extremely profitable if you can grow. Having said that, scaling a business like that takes a very specific skill. You have to know how to scale and when to scale. If you are too slow, you'll lose money, if you're too fast you'll go broke.

    I can't speak from experience here, but from what I've heard, a business has never gone broke from not scaling, but plenty of broke from scaling too fast.

    Yeah, you only need to think about getting a website up for now. Personally, I wouldn't even worry about what it looks like.

    Also, I'm not sure if you're thinking of using cloud storage for videos like Amazon S3 but if you are, make sure you use the pricing calculator before you do. Otherwise you'll end up owing Amazon $2 000 before you've made $1.

    which is not bad if for example if I upload 20-30 watermarked videos daily , 1-2 minutes from each movie i think will get a lot of traffic from big sites like xhamster , xvideos , etc

    Bit late with my reply here, but just found this thread.

    Anyways, sounds pretty much like I was years ago when I decided to start this path so I wanted to drop you a reply :) Am running multiple tube sites, most niche related. But about watermarking and uploading. For example xhamster doesn't allow watermarked material and they won't publish it if you watermark the video to your site, xvideos sometimes does, sometimes it doesn't and if they do sooner or later they're going to be removed (these are at least my experiences with this). Like stated before, go with certain niche, if you make just another "casual" porn tube, you're going to get nowhere. It's damn hard to pull traffic to those. About DMCA and material. Nowadays even if you don't delete something, they do make complaint to google aka chillingeffects, which causes you to lose ranking in google's eyes at some point. Also, some big studios can go after you despite the DMCA if you share their material too much especially if you're not going to delete it. This has happened to big boys only as far as I know (google up private lawsuit and xhamster). Personally I delete and remove when I get dmca report myself.

    About space and hosting. I'm running every site on their own dedicated and always start that way. I have terabytes of content as it is now per site and 1 gb is absolutely nothing when it comes to streaming, you will also need lots of bandwidth and decent port when you start to get traffic. Are you familiar with linux and video streaming? You do at least have to be able to set up tools such as ffmpeg, yamdi, mencoder, flvtool2, apache with flv / mp4 streaming modules (for pseudostreaming) to mention a few. Personally I prefer nginx though. But most shared hostings are not allowing these I suppose. Never even tried to run tube site via shared hosting.

    Dunno if you already decided which script to go with. The ones your mentioned mechbunny is hands down the best but also expensive, what's great in it though you can use it on unlimited sites after you have bought it. It's used by many big boys. One you can try out for free is STP (smarttubepro). It's not bad at all but I personally hate it that it's not customizable apart from the template thanks to so much of it being ioncubed.

    Hope that helps and good luck mate :)
