Whether you want to start a blog about your sex life or set up an adult e-commerce store, you need to make sure you have a web host provider that allows adult content.
The last thing you want is to pay for web hosting services, only to find you are barred from sharing the sexual content you had planned.
Here I will share my picks for the best adult website hosting providers.
My top pick, especially for beginners, is to use ViceTemple for your adult web hosting needs.
The site is easy to navigate and includes guides on how to start different types of adult websites. For example, at Vicetemple you can read about and set up a porn site, an online sex shop, a live webcam site, and even a dating site.
The adult web host offers web scripts to build WordPress websites as well. ViceTemple also offers dedicated and virtual private servers and adult domains.
The support is also great. I try to do as much of the tech side myself but run into problems. They’ve been very helpful and saved me time. I won’t name names, but in the past I’ve has web hosts for tech support begrudgingly give me help.
ViceTemple is also explicit in its support for hosting adult content on its website:
When it comes to sexual preferences, we are very liberal. So whether you are running a dark fetish community, or you are starting a controversial fantasy blog, we will accept you with much pleasure.
The adult web host accepts different forms of payments, including credit and debit cards, bank transfers, bitcoin, PayPal, and altcoins.
But depending on which payment method one you prefer, you may be directed to sign up under a sister site called “Virtue Temple” which is essentially the same.
I first learned about Mojohost at the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. Company president Brad Mitchell often speaks at adult industry panels to share his insight on the online landscape and to promote his services.
The adult-friendly provider Mojohost offers dedicated and virtual private servers, a content delivery network (CDN), cloud services, as well as domain and email options.
And if you are already in the adult industry, you’ll be happy to know that Mojohost accepts Paxum as a form of payment—along with more traditional payment methods.
