Hi guys,

I am thinking of setting up a website - I understand what the purpose is but I won't let it out here:)

Anyway, can someone suggest a good web hosting company?  I am not sure whether I would need to choose a NZ company or is a US one fine as well?

Also, advertising revenue - what is the best way to do this?  I have heard of Adsense etc... would it be wise to talk to a specialist or simply sign-up online?

I am trying to understand the entire process to see whether the idea is viable or not:)

Cheers for your assistance in advance!

How much traffic do you expect to get, and how much disk space do you expect to use? If its not much then you could maybe look at free hosting. I use 000webhost, which seems to work rather well

Initially traffic would be limited and I wouldn't expect I need much disk space.

I do need the ability for users to create user accounts and be able to upload an image per posting.

Any help would be appreciated.

Realising revenue through advertising is a tough game. If your site is very good you might be able to sell space directly - that's where you make money. AdSense is an option, but you wouldn't get much if using free hosting - most advertisers would block that.

This discussion is best done in private where you can explain what you want to do and someone can tell you if it's worth something or not.

You can always send me an email.

Happy to help out a fellow GZer - all our servers are NZ based and so is our helpdesk.

Flick me a PM with your requirements and I'll see what we can do.
