I have an adult site hosted at Dreamhost (predominantly it’s information about my store, with an affiliate store linked that to help pay the hosting bill). When I was first looking into Dreamhost I wrote to ask about it (I’d heard they were okay with any legal adult site but wanted to double check). This is what my email and their reply (this was in April 2004 but I don’t believe their terms of service have changed any in this regard):
[quote]> One of my sites, which is currently in development, is an adult webstore
[quote](video, toys, etc). There is nudity on the site (shots of video covers,
etc). Everything is legal, with a section 2257 notice on every page
attesting that all models are 18 years of age or older, etc.
Can I host this site with Dreamhost? From my reading of the TOS, it looked
like there shouldn’t be a problem, but I wanted to verify first.
Certainly! There shouldn’t be any problems with this at all, as long as
all content is legal. We have a pretty open policy on content of this
If you have any other questions, please let us know!
(Yes, I’m a packrat about saving email…)
