    Hey guys,

    Can somebody recommend me good storage server I can use for my file uploading website. Users will probably upload DMCA content, so it would be good if the server provider did not care or gave me time to remove the content. Which one has the best price for space ratio? And which servers do big sites like videoweed, openload, vidlocker, vidbull etc. use if someone knows?

    Thanks for help,
    Knowle

    You can check out Kimsufi : http://www.kimsufi.com/ or http://www.online.net/ for cheap dedicated servers.

    If you're gonna be DMCA compliant just use any server (dedicated or vps) and make sure that your TOS states you're against DMCA content and you'll be removing any reported files. Add a contact form in your site dedicated to DMCA.

    You can use a VPS for your webserver/database (Check the OVH SSD VPS : https://www.ovh.com/us/vps/vps-ssd.xml , they are really cheap and powerful, less then $4 per month) and store the content on AWS, Backblaze.com (1TB free : you may wanna try this first, the paid option is really cheap) or even OVH cloud storage (https://www.ovh.com/us/cloud/storage/).
