Okay, I'll probably come off as a complete jackass for asking the same question asked here several times, but I'm tired of pulling my hair out scouring the net for the hosting solution I'm looking for.
I'm creating an action sports website that will set itself apart by hosting users videos. Heres what I'm looking for.
1-2 Gigs of hard drive space
@100 Gigs of transfer monthly.
Around 10 dollars per month
I was looking at lypha.com, but then I read a bunch of horrible reviews on them.
I'm looking for the most features (templates maybe?) and the most reliable/REPUTABLE host. Thank you so much for your help, and ANY input would be most appreciated. Thank You, Brett
If you really need that much bandwidth, look into a VPS (Virtual Private Server) or a dedicated server. It will cost quite a bit more than what you want to pay, but you will actually be able to use that much bandwidth without your account being terminated, and putting your host out of business.
Nocster.com has some cheap dedicated servers with exactly 100 gig of bandwidth.
Well, I hate to say it, but when you're asking for figures like that, the hosts don't always have the best reputations. Actually, the only other host I can think of that offers that much bandwidth in that price range is Powweb. I'm probably missing a couple though.
If you do choose Lypha, there is a clause in their AUP that could cause problems for you:
Multimedia files are defined as any graphics, audio, and video files. LYPHA.com Web Hosting accounts are not to be used for the purposes of distributing and storing unusual amount of multimedia files. Any Web site whose disk space usage for storing the multimedia files exceed 70% of its total usage, either in terms of total size or number of files, will be deemed to be using unusual amount of multimedia files.
Powweb doesn't have a clause like that. However, their bandwidth is measured daily, so in the event that you use more than 5 GB of bandwidth on any given day, you will be shut down.
As I said, I don't think there are any hosts in that range with great reputations.
