Greetings forum users.
Tell me please:

There is international dating site with personal data and a maximum three user photos . which server and hosting do you recommend?
The money does not matter.


To get started, buy a VPS or VDS, then go to your personal server. you can rent or buy it.
You can't go wrong with renting a server, almost all providers have the opportunity to upgrade to higher level or improve the quality of dedicated servers, which will always allow you to expand your site if it goes uphill.

Feature examples:
Memory - 64 GB RAM
Hard drives - 2 x 1000 GB SATA (2 terabytes is enough for a large number of photos, even 50 Mb each)

It costs about 100 $ monthly


There are many hosting sites for photos and a dating site on the Internet, for example, here is one of them. It has a lot of tariff plans with prices, everything can be seen and seen there. Link [nofollow] in post.

If we are talking about dating sites, I mean the simplest ones with photos and a database with filters, then here you can save a little. I mean, for such sites hosting with ssd is not needed, but you should pay attention to hosting with a large hdd. At first (initial promotion + SMM), your base can have up to 1000 uniques, then there will be 10k and 100k. So hosting for 2000 Gb (2x1000 Gb) is suitable for you. If we talk about scalability and some extra features (transitions, high-quality images, holograms - in a word, high-quality multimedia), then I would advise hosting with 1000Gb SSD.


Among the most popular hosts I can recommend Hostgator, Ionos and Bluehost. To protect the personal data of users, you must use an SSL certificate, preferably a paid one. Well, in the place of the hosting provider, you can find out about the available tariff plans, services that include each tariff and choose the best one to place on your site.

Your online dating service web site may start small, but like many of its business dating colleagues, it is likely to grow rapidly as more and more people learn about the new service. Make no mistake with the choice of hosting. Make sure that your hosting provider will provide an opportunity for growth when you need additional features or more advanced plans.

Take a look at the rating of web hosting providers. You need a partner with whom you can start small and expand opportunities as your business grows. Many top companies have quite affordable tariff plans at a price of only a few dollars per month, offering their customers unlimited amounts of memory and bandwidth.
As soon as you realize that your business needs something more than what a basic hosting plan gives you, the best web hosting providers will always be ready to give you everything you need for the growth and development of a dating site. With them, you can easily move from the initial virtual hosting panes to virtual private servers (VPS), and then to dedicated servers, increasing the available resources and flexibility necessary for the development of your business with each step.

Databases and scripts
In order for a dating web site to be popular with users, it needs an attractive design and interesting functionality. It will require extensive databases and a variety of script options with which users can find friends by interests. This means that in addition to excellent scaling capabilities, the optimal hosting for a dating web site should offer its customers effective database and script support. You will need a lot of everything, because online dating services are constantly collecting new information about their customers and they need a variety of ways to present that information in search results.

Disk space volumes
Obviously, as the popularity of your dating business grows on the Internet, you will need quite large amounts of memory to store the profiles of project participants, including their photos or even presentation videos. This means that in the process of selecting a suitable hosting, it is advisable to pay attention to such services that will not limit either disk space or bandwidth. Otherwise, you will not be able to constantly increase the number of your active users.

Guaranteed performance
People can search for new friends at any time of the day or night, both on working days and during holidays and weekends. that means that the dating service site must be online 7/7 24/24. Find a hosting provider who gives you a guarantee of uptime for at least 99.9% of the time.

Consider a managed hosting option
If you expect your online business to become an internet hit one day, consider signing a contract with a provider offering business-class hosting. Here you will find both VPS and plans with a dedicated server, as well as tariff plans with full support (what is managed web  hosting, read the link) and 99.9% uptime.

When creating any site, it is important to choose the right web hosting. For an online dating service, a good provider is almost half the success. So if you want to succeed, read our recommendations again and make sure that you have made a reasonable choice.
