    Like title says. Will it be cheaper for me to buy, setup, and host my own server rather than go through someone like, justhost, fatcow, hostmonster, etc..? Does anyone know any good reputable and reliable hosts for adult content?

    I wish I had more sysadmin skills so I could use somebody other than liquidweb (who I love).

    Somebody mentioned http://hivelocity.net/ was good too

    you don't want to have a server running out of your house for anything other than development.

    if you want to make an investment in your own hardware, you can look into colocation and have your hardware in someone else's datacenter where you pay for electricity and bandwidth. i can give you the name of a place if you want to look into it

    I have dedicated servers with server beach and I have my own blade server currently set up in my garage.

    If you just need one server, lease it.

    If you need multiple servers, look at getting your own but be warned, the rack space, power, and bandwidth will be just as much as leasing a couple beefy servers.

    I have 11 servers so it benefits me to do my own thing, for now.

    Pepsi :bowdown:

    I have pay sites as well as free sites on http://www.pacificrack.com - they are very good to the adult industry as a whole, and great guys. Met and hungout with their president @ the Phoenix forum.

    I have an unmetered 100mbps for 499/mo. Best deal I could find anywhere, and it's truly unmetered. :o
