I’ve been reading some posts at this forum but I still have some questions about your hosting.
My site is dedicated to share files of a Radio program called “La Rosa de los Vientos” at Onda Cero Radio (ondacero.es). They allow their audience to share their radio program (La rosa de los vientos) on the internet and they even encourage people to do it. I would like to know if your TOS allows hosting those files here.
My files are mp3/asf but compressed in RAR format with a size from 0.5 MB to about 20-25 mb each one maximum. I do not want mp3 podcasts because the files are rather old (between years 2001 and 2004). The website is all in html with basic and minimalist layout, only one image and the rest is text. No forums and only the webmaster email account, so the bandwith used is mostly for the rar files.
The last 3 months I had an average of 70 visitors/day and not all download the files, with a monthly bandwith of 300/380 GB being used. The problem is that every day 5 or 6 different users download everything as if the next day the internet should close with a result of 2.5 GB used bandwith each one. I do not see a problem here because you offer a big amount of bandwith that I will never use.
But One question is, if those users use some download managers and have 12 or 14 files downloading at the same time, could it be a problem consuming a lot of server resources? To avoid that, could I use some script to force the downloads to a maximum of 2 or 3 files each time for each user/IP and have a track of the downloads? I think that “Count it good” could be fine to control it.
Also, is there a day bandwith limit or a day hits limit? And is there a Script php/CGI time limit? If using count it good I’m not sure what would it be that used time.
I’d appreciate your suggestions. Thanks,
