    Hello, I'm planning to make a movie site and host movies on dedicated server.
    Would like to ask few questions:
    Should i get dmca ignore server?
    How to make my movies not embeddable, so no one can steal my link and post it on their website.
    How much such server would cost?
    I'm not planning to upload every movie, just the new ones 2014-2015.

    Thanks in advance

    I used to visit a movie site before the wonders of Netflix + VPN.

    Anyway, that site had ALL it's movies hosted netu.tv
    I don't know how, but their videos never got removed and the streaming speeds were incredible.

    Maybe this will help :)

    Your going to have to get a dmca ignore server, and the cost is going to heavily depend on how much traffic you get and the streaming rate of the videos. A 1200Kbps rate video would barely be able to stream to 80 people on a 100Mbps connection.

    Yes, get hosting from the provider that ignores DMCA, probably European or Sweden dedicated server will be the solution. Not sure about the link sharing but you can prevent anyone from downloading them by using hotlink protection. As you are going to stream videos, you are going to need a powerful server with high memory, the server will cost between $200-$400 a month. You will have to take a backup solution with the server too.
