View Full Version : Large Download Website - Anything Special Required for Hosting?

17 Sep 2010, 01:31 AM
Hi all,

I am almost ready to launch a new free download website.

The site is going to be home to a lot of donwloadable .zip files. Some of them are large - 2-3gb and others and really small.

I would like to know if I need anything special to be able to handle multiple downloads etc of the files. I know that initially this won't be a problem, however, I am planning on making this a brilliant resource for all sorts of info and I want to make sure that I set it up right in the first place so that there won't be any problems when people download the files and I won't have to reinvent the wheel when it gets really busy and can't handle the traffic and/or downloads.

Any advice, or a pointer in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much
