How to choose best adult hosting provider?
When it comes to choosing a web hosting provider for your adult website, how do you decide which is the best platform to use?
It's a common myth that to host an adult website you need to use an offshore country such as Netherlands or Russia. These countries are often used to host DMCA ignored content, but they still have terms and conditions that prevent illegal adult content being hosted.
Your adult content must be legal in the country you're hosting, and with that said you can find many USA web hosting providers that allow adult web hosting. If you can't find reference to this in their terms of service, email them and ask. There's nothing worse than having your website shut down for breaking ToS you were unaware of.
Today we've looked at big web hosting companies that offer adult hosting that are located outside the usual safe haven of the Netherlands.
Ensure you choose a web host close to your visitors too. Netherlands can be a good option for an audience in the USA/Europe but will have longer load times for visitors from Australia/NZ.
Probably the most important after location is the support offered. Are they fast to respond to tickets and do they resolve them correctly? Most hosting providers use outsourced support for level 1 queries, i.e. first point of contact.
Before building your website, reach out to the support team and ask a general question and see how fast they respond. I've used many Australian web hosting providers, and they don't even reply on the weekends. The big hosts we mentioned above should respond fast, 24/7.
If your website gets hacked, or WordPress breaks you'll want them to restore a backup quickly. You should probably also consider how often they backup your site. Some hosts are daily, others are weekly and some are only monthly.
I recommend choosing an adult web hosting provider that offers frequent backups.
