    Use VPS or dedicated servers, shared hosts will just cancel your account.

    You'll need a SAN.... based on an average file size of 5MB per song, you're looking at 78,000,000 MB's of data, which is 78TB's. I don't think you'll get 78 x 1TB drives in a single server. Budget needs to be massive, $1500/month for a full rack in a datacentre plus the cost of the hardware ($25,000+ for a second hand SAN), plus servers and setup. That being said, Akamai's CDN would be able to handle it - of course you would no doubt need to prove your ownership of the music which no doubt you can provide :p

    for low cost servers you can try 15minuteservers, pritell, or count on inmotion as well but it will cost you lil more!
