    Need to find a new webhost since my old one is about to expire with Dreamhost. I have a few questions.

    1. I registered a domain name with Dreamhost. If I choose to keep that domain name and transfer it, will I have any problems along the way?
    2. Is there such a thing as a webhost that's not strict? I had a problem with Dreamhost where I hosted a Japanese manga which wasn't translated and I got a warning letter that I'm breaking their rule on hosting copyright stuff. In hindsight, I can see where they're getting at... which is why I'm looking for a webhost that doesn't have the same mindset [​IMG]

    I've hosted similar stuff (mostly full-page magazine scans) on my Dreamhost account and haven't heard any complaints from them.

    Are you sure the letter was from Dreamhost?
    Or maybe some retard decided to report it to them and they didn't even bother looking in to it themselves.

    Well, I replied to them with the usual "this manga is unlicensed in the West so it's still okay" then they sent a link to their terms and condition page... which actually included a section on the hosting of fansubs and manga. At that point, I thought "ah shit"

    I'm using Servage too.

    I'm hosting quite a lot of stuff. Manga, games, etc and they haven't caught onto me yet. Oh, and the site is Here.

    Since we're all using coupons, http://www.servage.net/?coupon=cust36724 [​IMG]

    I'll maybe lend out space for a small price if anyone is interested.

    In all seriousness, how likely will it be if I get caught hosting manga?

    I would not want to be hsoting it and after only a month, get warned and end up with a domain that I can't host manga on.

    Meant to answer this earlier and forgot.

    Transfer can take a few days to finish. During that time the domain may not be accessible, but as long as your new host allows domain hosting, you should be fine.

    I could host you on my server, with 10-500gb's of space and up to 4tb of bandwidth.

    I've heard good things about dreamhost.

    Anyone want to give me a more in-depth review for them? I'm not posting/hosting anything that isn't directly mine.

    www.servage.net

    EDIT; about their anime policy... I used my 300 gigs as an external HD. I had movies on them anime and mp3s. They removed the mp3s but left the licensed movies and anime... its like they cant bother to check if its anime or whatever.


    As long as you dont rape their BW they dont care.
