Hello forum users,

I would like to inquire about your recommendations for which server and hosting I should use for an international dating site that allows for personal data and a maximum of three user photos. Money is not a concern.


To begin, acquire a VPS or VDS, and access your personal server by either renting or purchasing it. Opting to rent a server is almost always a safe choice, as most providers offer the option to upgrade to higher levels or enhance the quality of dedicated servers. This allows for the expansion of your website in the event that it succeeds.

Some examples of important features include 64 GB RAM for memory, and 2 x 1000 GB SATA for hard drives (2 terabytes is typically sufficient for a large number of photos, even at 50 Mb each). The cost for this will be approximately $100 per month.


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 website may start out small, but it is likely to experience rapid growth as more and more people become aware of it. Therefore, it's crucial to select the right type of hosting. Ensure that your hosting provider offers room for expansion when you require additional features or more advanced plans.

When searching for a hosting provider, check their ratings. Look for a partner who can start small with you and expand as your business grows. Many top companies offer affordable plans at only a few dollars per month, with unlimited memory and bandwidth for their customers. The best hosting providers are always ready to provide everything you need to grow your dating site - from virtual hosting plans to virtual private servers (VPS) to dedicated servers.

Your dating web site will require extensive databases and various script options for users to find friends by interests. Therefore, the ideal hosting for a dating site should offer effective database and script support, along with excellent scaling capabilities. Online dating services constantly collect new information about their customers, so they need various ways to present search results.

As the popularity of your dating business grows on the Internet, you will need quite large amounts of memory to store participants' profiles, including their photos or even presentation videos. Therefore, it's advisable to select a hosting provider who will not limit disk space or bandwidth, enabling you to continue increasing the number of active users.

Ensure that your hosting provider gives you a guarantee of uptime for at least 99.9% of the time, as your users can search for new friends at any hour of the day.

Consider a managed hosting option if you expect your online business to become a hit one day. Business-class hosting providers offer VPS and plans with dedicated servers, full support, and 99.9% uptime.

In summary, when creating any website, it's important to choose the right web hosting. For an online dating service, selecting a good hosting provider is almost half the battle. Review our recommendations to ensure that you make a wise decision and achieve success.
