How do I create a videos website?

Discussion in 'General Business' started by vladim, Apr 21, 2013.

    I've been planning this for a while, but never did anything like it so some of my plans or maybe most of them might sound silly.

    1. I would need a domain that can't be deleted if I post sensitive content;
    2. I want to be able to host everything on a raspberry pi with a 2 TB external HDD;
    3. I might need a different type of internet connection? If I get a lot of visitors and if they download content?
    4. How will I be able to 'hide' from my ISP?

    I don't know if that would be the right order to start but I could use some help on what should I start with and how to take it from there. I've never done anything like this, so I'm not good with programming, linux etc... I'm really going into the unknown here and could really use some help, I have enough time until August to make it when I'll get my last paycheck, I'll probably be able to manage with the saved money until the end of the year so enough time to get this running and make it profitable.

    Thanks in advance!

    Here are my thoughts:

    1. From your other points I believe you're self hosting so unless you're hosting illegal content, you shouldn't have to worry about your domain getting deleted.
    2. This is a bit tricky, don't have much first hand knowledge of the device but i can tell you a typical apache/php/sql stack + any amount of traffic may most likely bring the device to it's knees
    3. in any connection that you get you'll need to focus on your upload speed as that will be your bottleneck in self hosting. So if shopping for plans look for at least a 1mbps up.
    4. This one is tricky, unless you're hosting bad content the only to hide this kind of stack is to use something like Tor.
    Anyways those are to answers your questions but I would *really* advise against it, and if you're doing anything illegal, you will be caught ( this becomes more likely the less you know/technical you are ). My suggestion, find a good adult host if that's what you're interested in and do your project.

    I think your best solution would be just get a dirt cheap hosting account.
    Domain not getting deleted, depends on your content :D.

    Well I knew it might sound silly, because I don't know much about it, but I would prefer some help, some tips or anything, instead of making fun of me. As I said I need help on how to create something like that.

    I really wanted to be in control of everything and nobody to interfere with it. I don't want my content being deleted by host, I don't want my domain to be deleted.

    About content, I think is hard to make money if your content is the same as everybody else on the internet.
