    Default Questions about Hosting an Anime-related website

    Hey, I've been around stoptazmo for awhile, and I think it's great for people to host manga on net, without the hassle of logging in and the such.

    So, I've been thinking about hosting my own manga website, and I have a couple of questions for you guys.

    1. Who here does not use IE or Netscape (ie. Firefox, Opera)

    2. Is $4/month + $10/yr good for 10GB storage, 200GB Bandwidth, and .com Domain(upgradable if needed)

    3. In a manga website, would it please visitors more if there were more misc. stuff, like in depth overviews of a manga series (like ie. Character Anaylsis, Techniques, Types of Bankai, etc). Or, on the other hand, would most of you just not care and head straight for the manga?

    4. Would you expect more than manga out of a manga site?

    5. Do Pop-ups and Google Ads tick you off?

    6. How much does it cost to host forums like this?

    7. And finally, what Manga Series NOT hosted here do you especially want?

    Thanks for any answers/comments/flames beforehand, it all helps.

    1. i use internet explorer
    2. i know nothing about money & domains. i just know how to spend money ^_^
    3. i like in depth anaylsis stuff. i especially like a character list/description. it helps me when i stop reading a manga for a time, and i end up forgeting which character is who. plus, i don't remember japanese names too well.
    4. not always. sometimes a good summary is all you need to make me happy.
    5. pop-ups tick me off but i can live with them since i neva see them (ty ad-watch that gets rid of all the pop ups automatically)
    6. idk
    7. full metal alchemist, rurouni kenshin (though i have it from somewhere else, it's definately a classic that you might wanna consider having), and probably a lot of others i just can't think of right now...

    I use firefox, simply because a) when it crashes, it doesn't crash my os.
    b) firefox has done a better job stopping applets, spyware, and popups than IE has.

    That's pretty good, I use http://mher.org/, the lowest plan on there.. which is $1/month + $10/yr @ 100mb storage, and 5gb b/w.. I suggest you look into making a bittorrent site, as that's alot easier on the hosting side of things.

    There are two things I don't like with the majority of download sites. The lack of information is one of them (I don't know if you can really supply that information easily), the other issue being clicking on all the links for a manga, a download all option would be neat. But then again, it may be a bit bad for a site.

    Like what.. adult stuff? Or a forum like this? I don't really know, administrators tend to make a policy of what they allow, and what they don't.

    No.. not really. Assuming that they are there to support the site. And that it does what it's intended to do. (help you pay for site expenses.)

    phpbb is free, you can use the cpanel program to install it easily, or just ask someone like me who does alot of php coding.

    I'm new here.. I'm actually sorta parinoid of downloading too much manga on my first day. XD
    Er.. Generally polls, and requests are good ways of finding what people want most. (of course you have to make sure that requesting is ok, some sites absolutely hate it when people request manga.)

    1. i use firefox, it's the best.
    2. that's a good price for what you get, but that bandwidth will get sucked dry once you get more traffic.
    3. put both to please both worlds. have an analysis section, and have the download section. or maybe you can have a menu wth the link to the downloads with a link to the summaries right next to it.
    4. that's up to you. the more you have, the more people you will please.
    5. ads aren't much more than a temporary irritant in firefox, all you have to do is adblock them. and popups are blocked automatically.
    6. for phpbb, it's a free download if you have your own server space. for invision power board, check here.
    7. ichigo 100%, rurouni kenshin, maybe flcl and get backers.
