I'm the core moderator of a abandonware game community called CDOS Abandonware, cdos.org. Our online community is based on letting users download really old, abandon, DOS games. We have 1800+ games in our game library and that's growing daily, at the moment we are using around 22 GB or hdd space.
I have been searching a lot on the Internet but can't find what I'm really looking for. The whole idea of the host is not to host the actuall site but the files users are able to download. This means I don't need anything on the computer really, except for a hdd, an FTP access and an IP-address.
Since our community is rather big (36.000 registered members) I cannot have a traffic limit, I need a limit on the speed for the download. What do you call it, quality of servers? Anyhow need unmetered bandwidth.
We are releasing a new version in a few days and my hopes was that I would be able to show them a new file server. Does anyone know where I would be able to find something like this?
The really best thing would be if you as a forum reader be able to offer me something from your computer? Since I don't need anything else really, just hdd space, unmetered bandwidth and IP address. I can't set it up at my place because I only have 1Mbits for uploading...
Thanks all for all the replies. I'm trying to keep the costs down as much as I can and looking into most of the ded. servers they cost quite a lot. Does anyone know a some quality although rather cheap examples of ded. servers?
