i have a glamour model who wants to have a website and i need to find a host for it, it would need members to sign in and request a user name and password and also pay a minimal charge for the service to help pay for the website host.

i have been told oh no not another porn site, but it is glamour photos, with clothes on the person concerned.

any help would be appreciated

thanks

Jason

Do you know any PHP/ASP or Perl programming? What kind of database do you need Acess or MySQL?

I assume you will want to take credit card orders in which case you will also need some kind of SSL connection. Its not going to be cheap.

Run by a couple of top guys in Manchester, the servers are UK based (docklands in London iirc) and they've always been reliable and fast for me.

SSL will cost you an extra tenner a year, and needing lots of space can bump the price up a bit but the basica ccount starts at £15pa, which is very reasonable.
I'd recommend using somewhere like World Pay to deal with purchases though.

hi,

thank you for your reply, and very helpful information, i have been looking for ages to find a host and this could just be the one that gets this started.

please could you let me know the name of the company, so i may contact them to find out the costs involved.

also there will be a minimal charge for the service to cover costs in running it.

i have thought of using PayPal, but if you think that World Pay is a best way to get payments then i shall look in to this too.

also how may i host this site myself, in that my pc will be the server?

thank you again for your help, and i await your reply..

regards

Jason

www.tsohost.co.uk is my hosting company. Our servers are based in the USA, which essentially means you get more bandwidth for your money.

34SP are also a good host (don't generally hear anything bad about them). I am personal friends with the owner of www.register1.net / www.serverstream.net / www.i-dot.net .

We specialise in this sort of web development and have made a number of sites that would match the criteria stated. We also host all our websites ourselves (On a server located in a new, purpose built multi million pound data centre in Berlin, Germany) as we have found in the past that too many "cheap hosting services" are cheap by name cheap by nature and incredibly unreliable. Anyways we would be happy to quote you for your site. email me at [email protected] or add my on msn on [email protected]. :

that is one hell of a solution!! Though i doubt the same quality of end result would be achieved. nevertheless if you are willing and have the time then go for it, my good samaritan days ended when I started a company.
