Hi , So i have a blog and i put software i program for other people to download and i get like 8,000 downloads a day , Each file size is 5MB top so its not that much , I have a PHP designed uploading scrip and sql database is required , What kind of vps requirement should i be looking for ? ATM im considering vps.net or bluehost but i thought i should ask more experienced people before i get any , Any other hosting suggestions are welcome, Thanks .
P.S i will be the only one uploading files so it wont be like a free files hosting website.
Seriously stay away from hosts likes Bluehost, they just somehow scams and after few days probably will suspend you.
Host your main website somewhere else, and get a VPS or server for your files, depends on your budget.
How much will you to pay?

By my calculations you are going to need about 1.2TB of bandwidth each month to facilitate the application downloads, so I'd short list any provider that allows that kind of transfer on their VPS packages (most do have packages that will facilitate this need) and stay away from 'unlimited' bandwidth suppliers, as they might not be too happy with you actually using the bandwidth
You should also consider where the majority of people are physically located that are downloading your app. For example, if 75% are from USA, you would be better with a USA VPS, if 75% are from UK, then a UK based VPS would be better, etc.
