Hi, I’m new to all this so I’m hoping someone can fill me in.
Dreamhost has been recommended to me as a possible host for my record labels website. At the moment I’ve got a domain registered and the site itself is being put together by a friend. Although I know virtually nothing about hosting and the specs, the deals Dreamhost have going seems to be great, as backed up by the recommendations I spoke of!
But… someone did mention to me that DH might not be suitable for a business like mine because of ‘throttled bandwidth’. More specifically, my site will need to include previews of upcoming releases as well as a number of DJ mixes in 192kbps MP3 format, each about an hour long.
Can some explain to me how throttled bandwidth might effect the above please? Is it really an issue I need to consider? Or would it actually be something that shouldn’t cause me any trouble?
