let's say i wanna use Kuula for now, but decide to switch to a different platform. I literally don't have the 360 files downloaded, but just on their hosting platform. Do they usually take them down? I am just wondering how the impact to clients would be and how you would explain that to them.


Hi All,

This question moved from here.

Thanks,

Dan

If you're paying fees to setup and host your tours and you stop paying - why would you expect any company to keep hosting? Different sites use different software so downloading from one to another isn't viable even if it was possible - that's why I'm leaning toward 3dVista - I have the finished tour that they can hose but I can also

I think there is one platform that has a $10 lifetime fee.

All platforms give you a quick start with good looking products and many useful integrations.

But after 5 years in the 360 and VR business I would never go for platforms again. All your time that you invest in a platform like kuula will be lost as soon as you stop paying. Same with Matterport.

If you invest more time in the beginning and build your own platform with software, self hosting and some support from Dan's forum, you will be your own boss and a better partner for your clients.

@MeshImages "build your own platform" you mean use a software where you can download your product like 3dvista...
That means you don't use the 3dVista annual hosting service and host your own tours for all clients?
Thanks
Alex

@thereal360 yes, I switched to self-hosting. It's easy if you know how to upload via ftp.
