1. That's not an Internet rule. Any hosting provider sets his own terms and conditions.
2. With a VPS you share hardware with other sites. With a dedicated server you have it all on your own.
Since video's use a lot of bandwidth it won't be very cheap. Did you consider using a CDN to host the video's?
Hi to all,
I'm going to start a website similar to Youtube to share videos, exclusively videos of different cities provided by real tourists, not by traveling sites like Expedia.
First I decided to purchase a shared hosting package, but searching on the web I understood that web hosting companies don't allow video sites get online with shared web hosting plans and I must choose a VPS or dedicated server.
1- Is it true? Am I forced to choose either VPS or dedicated server?
2- If so, which of them is better for my website? Is there any difference between them? As I see VPS accounts are a little cheaper than dedicated servers.
