Thread: Creating a own file sharing / uploading site..

  1. #1

    Question Mark

    I am planning to create my own file sharing site like www.rapidshare.de
    If I want to offer unlimited space for premium member, what kind of server do I need to get? Do I need like whole bunch of dedicated server or just one giganic server..? what else do I need and How much will it cost? Please let me know if any of you guys have previous experience..

    thanks

    I wouldnt know anything about that i think, but for my secondary upload center on my site, i am planning to use this:

    http://www.sharing-file.com/index.htm

    Its nice and cozy and the layout is awesome with different skins.

    but I am trying to run a membership site.. What if I have like over 1000+ member.. wouldn't it be too slow to download since my broadband connection max at 70kb/sec+ on upload?

    if you have 1000+ members you should have the money to upgrade your connection
    Plan for the worst, hope for the best

    Yea, you have no where near the bandwith to support a site like that.

    Not even worrying about the hardware you'd need, because you have to use an offsite hosting meaning they would probably provide the server - you'd be looking at the lower side of a few hundred dollars a month for something on a moderate scale.
