    I think everyone should have an adult host. if your promoting dating or enlargement products with adult traffic your really on the line. When you have been shutdown as much as I have you either say screw it or become a rules lawyer. That means reading the TOS of your host or getting an adult host.

    I use Exmasters (Disclosure- aff link for credit not cash) it had some good reviews and is cheap.

    Any one else have a good Adult Website host?

    Yea I wouldn't, nothing like getting the violation email. Sometimes they give you time to get your stuff moved, sometimes not.

    I use Dreamhost.

    I know they aren't the best hosting company in the world.....but they were the first one I could find that would do adult hosting cheaply and a lot of my friends who were using it recommended it to me.

    I love their one click set up stuff! It is perfect for a first time out newb like me that can't set up a content management system to save her life.

    Speaking of adult hosting.......I can tell you that you have to be extra careful with Tumblr and adult links these days. They say that they have no problem with adult content but they have been quietly censoring a lot of adult links by just not letting you make a post if you include them (not just affiliate ones either!)

    They also have been quietly deleting a lot of sites without any real explanation. Even non-hardcore stuff like non-nude camgirl sites.

    It is really random with the ones they choose to censor too. There really isn't any rhyme or reason to it. :mad:

    Oh you were looking to run a Thumbnail Gallery specifically then? I am sorry if I misunderstood your intention.

    I currently run an adult site on Dreamhost that isn't a TGP.
