    hello i'm planing on start my streaming movie site using third party movie host, like openload megavideo thevideo etc, and i'm wondering what will be fit best for my streaming movie site a offshore vps or a webhost.

    i know that the vps is better, but i'm asking because i'm very low on funds and i want to invest the minimum funds in this project, so is a offshore webhost a way to go for a movie streaming storing the movies in openload or megavideo ?

    for last, can i register the domain with my usual domain registrar (onlydomains) or i need to go other way ?

    thanks in advance for all the help!

    you can use any domain registrar but you must host your website with some offshore hosting provider.
    if you dont have much traffic right now then start with shared hosting and then upgrade later to VPS and maybe later to Dedicated server but it must be in offshore location.
    also here I want to add that openload.co will delete your video if they get any copyright complain.

    Since it require a lot of bandwidth i'd recommend to go with VPS then hosting

    Since you are going to embed the movies, offshore hosting will do. No need for a VPS. Once you start getting 2-3 thousand people a day, start considering moving to a VPS. Usually offshore hosts will move you for free.

    Good luck in your web hosting.

    Quick question though: This was something that interested me a long while ago when I thought about doing the same, but never did because I worried about legal things. How do you intend to advertise it since there's a literal hundred dozen of websites out there that do the same? Wouldn't mind seeing it when it was up since Im a movie fanatic and Putlocker always seems down.

    i have this project in mind a while a go, i'm still thinking in all the legal things and searching over the internet trying to find if this can be done without any problems; as far as i know, we can always be found tracking the money that we will make from the site, that is why i'm still in the making plan/thinking phase.

    about promoting the site, i was thinking i promote the website on reddit and facebook groups related to movies, trying to not to spaming, forums and a readed here about strumbleupon, that it was good for drive traffic to the entertaiment niche.

    Streaming websites request speed and less bandwidth e.g you don't need "unlimited" storage or bandwidth since you will use openload for example.
    Make sur that you will pick hosting provider who will keep you anonymous.

    I am going to create a similar website with embedding copyrighted videos that I will upload to a video host.
    And of course I am going to monetize it. Am I safe if I do this or can I face any legal problems?
    I am not from USA.

    Not only they can track you, they will also suspend your adsense account :) So you better find other way of monetization (usually the storage hosting e.g openload.co) pay an nice amount pet 10.000 downloads/streams.
    So you will upload your content there and use embed/iframe in your website.
