    Question Need your wisdom my fallow forum friends regarding hosting my video clips site

    I am working on a video clips sites
    I think I am going to use WMV files
    My site will use the gamescript script
    Regarding hosting how is bigdaddy?
    Since my site will be new and it will take me time to upload movies and get people no need to order from the start a big expensive hosting plan.
    But if you have some tips it will be nice.
    What about hot linking what can I do?
    Thank you all

    They, and almost all others don't allow hosting WMV files, especially if that's all you're going to be uploading.

    I understand that. They won't allow YOU to upload that many WMV's to your account.

    Yes, it is. It's abusing their service.

    Sure. Having a large number of WMV files that people are downloading/streaming drains bandwidth very fast. It also takes up a large amount of disk space. Although these resources are rightly allocated to you, you are piling a bunch of high-resource dependent files that take away from the performance of other user accounts on the same server.

    With more success comes more expense!

    How do you know this is true for Godaddy?
