What I am looking for is a network guru. Someone who can set up a small hosting company for my needs. I am not looking to be a big company at this point.
However I need this to be set up as auto pilot as possible. It will work in conjuction with this, [url removed, login to view] I do my hosting through [url removed, login to view] and they do offer reseller hosting on servers. I guess you can do most things through control panel.
This will start out as a site where people can buy small, limited, hosting packages for video and image hosting on my sister sites and message boards. They can pay through paypal, and I will look into other offerings as well.
I would need a nice looking, professional, front end. But more importantly, I need a very easy to maintain back end. Ideally, after this project is launched. I would want the person to stay on in limited form. I may consider buying some similar, smaller companies which would require integration to this comapany's billing, and infrastructure. But that is more of a long term goal. The key right now is to handle the immediate needs of my message boards, and sites that need this type of hosting.
Your quote should include any, and everything needed. So if there is some special security software needed to throttle and bandwidth, prevent hot linking, etc. That should be in your quote.
Please provide your experience in this field, and any recommendations you have for how to set this up. Both for ease of use, but to keep bandwidth costs regulated.
This site will offer different hosting packages from small freebie, to more storage and bandwidth user packages that people will pay for. I would also like to have a back end that people could pay to see everything on the server(s). As this will mainly be used for anime, celebrities photos, etc. But that is not critical at this stage.
This would be an example, [url removed, login to view] Or this, [url removed, login to view] Or this, [url removed, login to view] You can find more ideas, and inspiration via [url removed, login to view] if you need to. But these will be small hosting plans mainly for my sister sites in the network.
