Your first video website will require research, planning, and a bit of money in order to get it started. While some say it’s difficult, you can easily use a template to speed up the website creation process. We would like to help new website owners by giving them some tips on how to make their first site memorable and appealing to their specific niche.
Everyone who is deciding to make a video website will have to answer the following question.
How Do I Design the Website?
You can either design the website by scratch (We don’t suggest you use ready-made solutions if you are looking for an efficient tool) or by using templates. To make a video website, you’ll need the following tools:
- Server-based video converter (converts the video files into flash).
- Web design software (Front page/Dreamweaver for active page development and tools)
Look for a Reliable Host
You need to find an effective hosting platform for your website. You’ll need a hosting plan that holds over 1TB of data (it is a video site after all). This is because it will require a lot of bandwidth limits and disk storage.
- Enhanced network connectivity: (select a content delivery network i.e. CDN).
- Reliable storage: (Cloud hosting or SSD)
- High Bandwidth: (Netflix suggests 25 Mbps, Amazon recommend 15 Mbps, Hulu suggests 13 Mbps)
- Security: (Domain restriction, Geographical restriction, viewer payment security, Token security, Watermarking)
- Low jitter: Use ABR streaming due to its adaptive stream rate. This allows it to reduce jitter and make your site run more effectively.
