hi, i run Shakira Thunder, and i am looking for a new dedicated host. My current one offered to host me, but has gone on and off, on and off, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt (especially the mysql), before my site`s host went on and off, i used to get 300-400 + (sometimes even 500) per day, but since people realized my site went down, alot stopped coming, and i even had to reset my counter (since the site was deleted), thats why im looking for a host. here u can view my site:

v-1: http://shakirathunder.metropoli2000.co.uk/Main.htm

v-2: http://shakirathunder.metropoli2000.co.uk/New/Main.htm


i prefer version 2, and that is the new layout i would like to upload to my new host,

For the site i use and need:

First: I would be adding your banner and button to my site,
-I use a forum and a gallery which needs mysql and php, etc...
room and bandwidth: as much as possible (my site doesnt use that much, but if i want it to grow i have to have a lot of room)

extras: i would like media hosting (but its not a must)
domain: i use a short url, so its fine for me, so u guys dont need to worry about that, but i know some services offer a domain to high traffic sites, so if any of you do that, just lemme know, but its not a must

thank you

I think shared hosting is what you need based on the traffic figures you gave us.

I highly suggest you to register a domain anyway.

It has some advantages:

1. easy to remember URL to be known by your users
2. When you change hosts your URL doesn't change
3. it's cheap

i dont have money for a domain name, that is why i am looking for a free host, if i had money id buy it all, i use a short url for now: shakirathunder.vze.com

and it stays the same

It would help us a lot if you gave us the exact amount of space and bandwidth you need.

right now the actual site is no more than 10 mb, the gallery, no more than 200, and the forum no more than 200, but if i can get the option to expand it i would really like it (like an additional 25 per week or something)

about bandwidth: my site gets like i said 300-400 + and since shakiras new single comes out next month, you can times that by two or 3, cause all the fans will be coming back, so id say no more than 10 gb, probably less (im guessing about the bandwidth since i have no clue how much i am using)

btw: the gallery is a huge part of the site, but doesnt use that much bw, it uses php, so i can put the banner on the top of every page of that also, so it would also helo raise money

Are the images in this gallery public domain?
There could be copyright issues.

i dont know what u mean by public domain, but all the pics r legal, my gallery and others, have been using them for a while and no ones said anything and some pcis we get from an account for commercials use, so nothing bad is going on

What are your sources?
Just because no one has said anything yet, does not mean that the pictures are not copyright protected.

first of all, alot of the pics r from various fan sites, promo, photo shoots, scans etc...regualr fan pics, u know, none r really from a big company like wireimage, etc,,, except one group of pics, which we paid and got permission from, since thats why we paid, but most of the pics r just regular fan pics, like u find on those britney sites and all, so i dont see the point of worrying about this

You are asking for free hosting.
If you host copyright photos the host is responsible for having them removed.

Any decent host would "worry" about this.

i guess i have to repeat myself: i am not hosting copyrighted pics, all of mine r regualr ones, scans, photoshoots, etc....i only have one group which we (my group) purchased for public use. so theer would be no worries about having them removed, i understand what u mean and all, but im not doing anything wrong

Alan, I think what Blue drives at is that what you currently use - scans and photo shoot pics - are copyrighted and usually you need either to pay the fee for their usage or get permission from the source.

So when you display her pictures from fashion magazines and such - there is an intellectual property law in play.

Best,

Or even from other fan sites.
Just because other sites are using them does not make them legal to use on your site.
