I’ve seen so many different variations of this question on here, but have yet to still find a clear answer. Let’s say I have a 1 page static (just plain .html page - no php or anything cpu-intensive). There’s a single link to a say…100MB file.
I know from reading these forums that excessive CPU limits are not welcome (with reason of course) on shared accounts. But would I actually be able to serve up the bandwidth (2 TB offers for the basic plan) for this in actual usage and real world circumstances? I don’t know how much CPU it takes to actually send a file I guess (but I’m not guessing too much, so I don’t think it would really factor it).
If my math is correct, I should be able to have this 100MB file downloaded about 20,000 times…but would this really/seriously be allowed to happen on the basic dreamhost plan? Has anyone ever really gotten anywhere near that? Thanks.
