Sounds like a question for Serverfault maybe, perhaps even SuperUser. Certainly not SO. – glenatron Mar 2 '10 at 12:15
"best" by what criteria? cost, uptime, manageability, location? – warren Mar 2 '10 at 14:27
Why don't the people at stackoverflow start migrating these to webmasters instead? – dunxd Feb 2 '11 at 10:05

YouTube or Vimeo

If you want the actual website hosted externally, then just upload to said services and embed the videos on your site

Hi, Thanks for your reply. I need a solution, if users upload videos directly onto my site. – Auxi Mar 2 '10 at 12:09

Your stated requirements are extremely vague so expect to get only extremely vague replies.

Having said that, look into Amazon EC2 and CloudFront Streaming.
