Website hosting suggestions

Recommended Posts

Hi all. Just got high speed internet access the other day and the next step in the start towards going commercial with the scenery package I'm working on is creating a business website. I'd like to make my package available for download over the internet and it's nearly 300 mb in size so obviously I need a host site capable of holding many mb of data as well as a large bandwidth for uploading and downloading. My intent all along with this project was not to go into this business as a means to put food on my family table. I already have a job for that. I only desire to have enough income to cover costs and compensate for my time and effort (and keep my family happy). Since this venture has no assurance or desire of great profits, I can't saddle myself with a huge monthly website hosting bill. The early months of the business website won't even have a product available but only marketing, a forum, and a possible demo product so there will be essentially no income for some time. Here's my question then, especially to other scenery designers that maintain a site where they sell or distribute a product freely. What should I expect to pay monthly for a site that will meet my needs and the needs of my customer? Also, do you have any recommendations of hosting services that you've worked with in the past? My early research has shown wide diversity of pricing for essentially the same product. Often the lower priced sites even exceed the higher priced ones in terms of storage space and bandwidth. Art

Talk to server101.com. I haven't tried distributing much from my site etc., but they are inexpensive and provide great service. I have several sites hosted by them.Jon
