Adult web hosting is a specific hosting plan, designed for websites that cater for a particular target audience offering adult content. In most cases, adult content includes photos, images, animation, audio and video in various different formats.
Basically, all the available media includes explicit (adult) content, which is suitable for adults only. Because of its explicit nature and applicable laws related to adult content, numerous web hosting providers do not allow the hosting of such content on their hosting server. Furthermore, if they find sites in breach of the hosting company’s terms and conditions, such content will be immediately removed.
In most cases, an adult web hosting provides large disk storage capacity and huge network bandwidth, along with directory and file level security. Such web hosting packages have been specially created to match the specific needs of sites with unlimited storage space, network usage, digital protection for data (video, audio and images) stored on the servers, along with support for video and audio streaming format.
As websites with adult content frequently offer download or on demand viewing of adult movies and live streaming for videos, adult web hosting should support all the required applications, scripts and tools for an adult site to be able to stream its content to its visitors. For such websites, unlimited data transfer is a must have features, as even one single user could download huge amount of data (because of the large size of video data).
In most cases, adult web hosting in combination with dedicated server hosting can represent the perfect plan for companies who want to host adult content. For companies that intend to host online movie websites, the requirements are mainly the same.
Other adult web hosting package standard features typically include e-commerce shopping cart, unlimited MySQL Databases and domain hosting, support of third-party payment processors, numerous scripts for better task management, control panel, one or even several free domains names and more.
Features that are also included with an adult web hosting plan are superior uptime guarantee, skilled support staff, immediate account setup and money-back guarantee for the unused period.
Customers are generally allowed free transfer of current domains from some other hosting companies and registrars. You can also make appropriate modifications in DNS records to indicate a new host online. There are adult web hosting companies which claim to have maximum five minute hold time when customer care is called on the toll-free number of the company.
If you plan to host explicit or adult content on your site, it is absolutely necessary for you to thoroughly read and fully understand the applicable terms and conditions. Otherwise, your content could be deleted without any prior notice by your adult web hosting provider. A web hosting feature comparison is yet another necessary step to make.
