Thread: I need 50+GB

  1. #1
    Imagine this scenario:
    I need 50+GB web space, and 20+GB bandwidth on windows server.
    The site will be providing multimedia content

    What are the best options for me?? Should I buy a hosting package or a dedicated server??

    I been advised to get a dedicated server. How much will it cost??

    If I DO buy a dedicated server, how else can i take dvantage of the server, e.g, can i re-sell some of the space and bandwidth to someone else to make some extra money??

    thanks

    for what you require a dedicated server seems as if it would be, at least initially, overdoing it a bit.

    Dedicated server is better then a host. You can get away with more, and do what you want with it. Not everything is supported by a host.

    To get money for the sever you can sell domain names, and host sites for people.

    that is, if people are willing to just have a subdomain, which sucks
