    need to know what this would entail(starting image host)

    I am looking to start an Image hosting site to compete with imageshack. I need to know what this would entail, the level of difficulty, and if there are possibly any open source codes i could use. Also, if anyone is interested in coding, email me

    you can pm me about the coding. i'll do it (not for free but we can discuss prices).

    as per what to expect?

    you will need at least 80gb server space. and really, that probably won't be enough.

    you will need excessive amounts of bandwidth.

    depending on the level of control, this may be difficult but really it's more of a tidious job than anything.

    but seriously - you will need a **** load of server space and a **** load of bandwidth.

    look at deviantart. 17 million deviations. I wouldn't be surprised if they ran about 10 Terabytes of server space.

    Now take into consideration each new image to be hosted is viewed on average 10 times daily. thats alot of bandwidth.
