    To the Great and Powerful oz(s) of the forum.
    I have moved to making adult tube sites using WP-Script, 7 are in process. These sites are on shared hosting accounts and now they are out of inodes. Until yesterday i didn't even know what an inode was! I live I learn. My sites are not seo yep but in process, each has about 5000 vids and no bells or whistles. However, using the BANNER Ad tips and tricks I have learned here (see other posts) these seven sites are making money. ;) Enough money to switch to a VPS +.
    Problem... advice needed...... Oh Wise Oz

    I have very limited knowledge of servers, I am a WordPress site type. Everyone I talk with says server knowledge is a must even when using a Managed VPS service. Are they right? What are any alternatives? If I hire a IT guy how mush work is involved for him or her? To much money to ignore on tubes and banners are really slow the last couple months. Any ideas or suggestions would be helpful.
    As always a Big Thanks To All Who Have Helped!!!!!!

    from the 60 year old guy who found BlackHatWorld and loves making money now!!!!

    Running out of inodes could be a plugin created small files while caching improperly or something like that, even an email problem.

    Ask your host to check. I had shared hosting and had full inodes and they fixed it immediately. It was a plugin that created huge amounts of small cache files that were useless files but jammed up a folder and maxed out my inodes.

    Ask your host.

    Thanks for the reply,
    I did check with the host and they showed inodes were about equal between sites and most used due to number of images, images being thumbs of vids. They were first to suggest VPS

    You don't need a lot of sever knowledge to run sites like you are running. Most hosts do offer managed plans which will take care of everything you need. But you can run an unmanaged server for a while until you need specific support.

    BTW, how are you driving traffic to your tube sites.

    Thanks,

    Traffic.. No social to speak of ( just Tumbler) ,but I make my own banners and buy traffic to my sites with them. I spend $1.oo a day divided between all sites 28 days a month. The other two or three days I spend $10 to $15. based on hits results every few hours. I watch my banner sales from other sites and when there is a really hot day in sales I spend more on my own sites (the $10 or$15 days). I am only averaging about 8000 hits a day per site but its only been 3 month and as I sale more I plan on allocating more $ to banner traffic. So far I net a profit and it is getting bigger about every three days. I never pay more than .02 for tier1 traffic and only .001 tier 2. I never advertise for tie 1 unless its a a really good day by 4pm, after 4 if going good I will switch to tier 1 and so far its BOOM BABY time for a few hours and then when it slows down I switch back.

    The trick per say is not paying to much for banner ads, having banners that produce, and watching the ups and downs and having someone ready to pounce when the timing is right.

    Who would have thought a 60 year old brick and mortar guy, with almost no computer skills (yes I still hunt and peak) , would be living off of Internet Porn sites! lolol I still can't believe it. Thanks to all here !!!

    How much traffic your web site.

    If the site traffic exceeds 10,000 per day for the first site, you need a vps hosting.

    If the 5000 video placed on your hosting, will be a lot of memory space-consuming file hosting.

    You have to think about expenditures and revenues

    Hello, I am over the 10,000 per day once in a while and anticipating it happening on a regular basis on 5 sites very soon. That's why I am trying to figure this out asap.
    The videos are hosted on other sites and my sites just link to them showing previews.
    Expenditures and revenues is what its all about... The Bottom Line... for every $1 going out, there must be $2 coming in or its time to change the plan. We adapt, we overcome, we persevere..We Make Money!!!!
