    Hello! Im trying to find a good place to host my website which will have like 5 2-minute movie clips. Does anyone know which web host would be the best for this? I'm really tight on cash so i'm looking for the cheapest i can get.

    thanks for your time!

    It depends on how many clips you plan on putting up, how large the clips are, and how many times you expect them to be downloaded.

    Well, they wont be downloaded more than 200 times a month im guessing. And im not sure of the size.. 2 minute mpeg videos and a small resolution.. not sure how it turns out exactly but we arent talkin anything huge.

    thanks for replying

    Hmm, let's say 5 videos, 2 MB each, each downloaded 200 times in a month. That's around 2 GB of bandwidth needed per month, and only about 10 MB of space needed to host the files (obviously more will be needed for the HTML and images, but it shouldn't be nearly as much).

    I'm pretty sure most hosts have at least 2 GB of bandwidth, and most have at least 50-100 MB of space.
