Can anyone recommend a good web hosting company that offers mysql & php and preferably a shoping cart that's not prudish. I found a place that offered all that for six domains for $14.95 a month but they said no adult material. I called them and asked if they considered lingerie pictures adult or not. The conversation ended when she said, "If we see a nipple we'll cancel your account". Now, this is without refund of unused months that are prepaid.

This is for my lingerie store. Our vendors are pretty good at providing images that have photoshoped out nipples, genitals etc but every once in a while an image does come through.

Anyways, if you know of a good non-prudish webhosting company please let me know.

Try godaddy.com. I'm in the process of building a site as well and contacted a couple of hosting companies asking about nude content. When I came across godaddy I couldn't find anything that indicated a prudish policy so I called them. When I asked a sales guy about it he just kinda shrugged it off. So I asked again saying it more directly as in "I will be displaying photographs of people in totally nude photographs on this site". The guy responded with something like "We really don't care about that". So that's where I landed. They have what seems like great pricing on hosting - with some really good promotional deals as well - and have already found out that they give good tech support. So far I'm sold.

Try www.lunarpages.com I'host a half dozen websites with them. They're cheap, feature rich ... and have never given me any trouble with nakid content.

I second the GoDaddy.com suggestion. I've been using them for a bit and am very happy with thier service, terms, and price.

godaddy has SLOW php & mySQL services. I had my NikonNexus site there when it was a static HTML site and it was perfect. When i went to a dynamic PHP driven site with a mySQL backend the site would connect 50% of the time and the pages loaded dreadfully slow. Their service is cheap and they may not care about nudity but they are a fairly new web provider and their service is buggy and unreliable for scripted php sites.

I currently use SiteGround.com as my host. they do not allow full otu adult content but an occasional nipple in a non porn context should be fine. And all they do for a violation is suspend the account until the problem is fixed. I currently run my photo galleries and there is a nipple shot there and no problems for the past 3 months. Cheap and reliable too. If you decide to go the siteground route use this link: http://www.siteground.com/ Their support staff usually answers requests for help in about 5 minutes.

Hey guys, thanks for the replies. I'm gonna look into all the options presented and get going on this thing. I've used GoDaddy to register my domains for year and had no problems. The report of slow php/mysql does concern me a bit. You guys have given me some great useful information.

thanks again,

David
