Hello,

For the past several months (july 2013) I have been trying to find a webhost that supports my needs with good customer service (uptime 99.9%) of the time, and if their is a problem how is it handled.

In july I wasn’t pleased with how some Anime/Asian drama/Manga sites were being made and I believe (unlike those sites) that I can invest a good amount of money and add features that I want that the other sites are lacking. So to skip the long story short I have already put in 3200 in the sites design. Before all this I was looking for a host outside the US to avoid DMCA. However I managed to contact a couple of companies, one of them was host gator.

I have a domain account with them so I decided to ask them if they allowed anime streaming sites on their server, and they replied saying yes we do!. Shortly after I started reading some things about them (I personally never had a problem) but a lot of people were saying after they were bought by EIG their service went to hell and they had bad up times etc. I also read that they will take down anime streaming, so I’m now getting nervous because I still don’t have a good host (Trustworthy) I can go too at the moment.

A few hosts I have seen are…
leaseweb
hawkhost
servermania
imageleet
esited //This site is in Chinese but I heard good reviews on them but I’m like how can I read it unless I translate page seems fishy.
I will like to know if their are any other companies that you guys recommend? Money is not really an object, I would like to goto a dedicated server or VPS(since I’m assuming this site will be big) Maybe a host in the netherlands (DMCA). I’m not sure on bandwidth and disk space but Ill like flexible packages. Good customer support (I want them to be at least a couple of years old. I wonder if you guys tried these hosts I have mentioned? If so please tell me what you think.

Also I’v been hearing about unmetered and metered bandwidth, and unmetered don’t work well with video sites (Idk if you guys can shad some light on this?)

If eng is bad sorry not my first language
