    Yahoo Shared Hosting for file server?

    I was wondering if anyone has been to successfully use the new Yahoo "Unlimited" hosting plans to at least host a couple of gigs of files for the public to download without any suspension or issues? Let me know!

    You'll probably get hit by the limits as the regular overselling hosts have, so don't expect to start up some heavy filesharing site on their hosting.

    If I host 2 files at 2GB in size each for a total of 4gb and and manage to have 100gb of bandwidth daily. Do you think they'll say anthing?

    I don't think you'll get that far. Especially with the new limits.

    I don't think you will have any problem with that - at least I didn't have any when I did my testing at servage.net, so I guess yahoo should be as solid as they are.
