you need to check VPS /Decicated server as most shared hosting provider do not allow file hosting websites.
I will rather check cheap VPS to start with and then move when websites grows.

So this wil be a small private file sharing base, I already have the files on few wordpress based websites , they gathered way to much files and I want to transfer them to this private place and simple redirect the download link.
The monthly budget I can easily put is $30-$40 every month. This will be 7%-10% from what I make at this point with these files.
As soon I move all files to the new server "I can do my trick" and get 50-60 uv a day, some may download more than one file, so money start roll in.
I need managed vps because I don't know how to use this thing yet. I read a lot but you know until your not sure don't do it or you'll regret.
I don't need high speed download, just a reasonable one, so people don't abandon download but either to fast so they can't see the download
If those files are not copyright It sounds good. I would recommend you for a VPS or dedicated server with a unlimited bandwidth and 30-50mb/sec bitrate line. This would be great to allow users to download files more fast at the same time.
I need some recommendation regarding my small upcoming project based on file sharing. Files are not copyrighted, so there will be no problem regarding this aspect. Files size between 1MB - 300 MB.
I need around 30GB space per month to upload all files in next 5 months, after that things goes pretty slow, uploading max 5GB per month or so.
At start will be 3k-5k downloads per day, most from US, 20% from GE, 10-15% from FR, IT and the rest is significantly low. After 5 months around 50K - 60K downloads and even more.
Need a backup to all files just once a month.
I'll be using sibsoft xfilesharing script.
What do you suggest, please name the company and the hosting plan I must choose.
Thank you so much for your time and suggestions! Kind regards!
As you have multiple locations listed I would make use of cloud files from Rackspace or AWS cloudfront and use CDN to upload/store/distribute the files. and have a simple website running on a vps - that's just an alternative suggestion
LiquidWeb it seems only the hardware cost $50 and I need to pay another $10 to get it vps fully managed. They have great service but is over my buget.
BigScoots don't have online chat, or I'm unable to find it. Did not tried to email them yet to be honest and I don't like they have just 500 GB Bandwidth in the first vps plan.
Wired Tree has an awesome pack but again is over my buget, I don't like to pay for something I don't use, at least at start, I'm launching a private file sharing site as I said above.
Still lurking KnownHost, and reading reviews about them, it seems they are top notch company, just few problems but they solved it faster, let's face it, problems may occur all time, most important is that they get the problem solved and move on, I'm very attracted by VPS 2 plan.
If someone know, does KnownHost charge any VAT fees for European rezidents?
VPS would definitely be a better option. The range would start from $8-$65/month. It depends on the specs. I think, as far as your needs are concerned budget should e around $20-$35/m. Well, for vps hosting providers you can go on the advertising section of WHT and check around there. Due to new year and christmas occasions there might be many good deals awaiting for you. Just have a look at those hosting providers which suits your needs. Good Luck
