    Hi guys.

    I am building a highly converting Adult Affiliate site (landing page) but i have a problem with bandwidth. I tryed to to put my content which is over 1,5 gb of high quality videos on my hosting provider but that didnt went too well cuz it sucked all bandwidth in couple of minutes. My videos are in html5 format so I have 3 files for every video mp4,ogv,webm. Is there any solution like dropbox or googledrive where I could put my videos without bandwidth problems?

    I doubt you will be able to do it for free.

    It might be better to lower the quality of the videos and make them smaller.

    I was thinking of making a multiple dropbox accounts and putting like 100 mbs of content on each. I heard dropbox has bandwidth limit but I cant find exact limits anywhere. Would that work?

    Get yourself an inexpensive VPS with fast I/O and high bandwidth and set up your own CDN.

    You need a fully dedicated server, a 1Gbps connections speed for videos is best. Make sure the bandwidth limit is high like over 20TB. I use ayksolutions for my dedicated server. Some people even use multiple servers, one for videos, then another for thumbs and static files. So it loads faster.

    I cant use x videos cuz my site requires hmtl5 video tag. It looks awesome and I just need to figure the last part about hosting. I am not very familiar with VPS. How much money they cost and are the easy to setup?

    Next time, use a question mark in the end, so people know it's not a TUTORIAL but a QUESTION instead :)

    Setup is fairly easy.. A VPS can go anywhere from 10 dollars and up depending on your needs. Anything under 10 dollars I don't mess with or recommend because the resources are either so small they are unusable, or the VPS is completely oversold.

    I have recommendations, go to fileuploader.pw register and upload your videos there. It should work fine. It's my file hosting, with unlimited bandwidth and unlimited storage. 100gb free file storing (I am not advertising, just saying that my site could be helpful if you're going to host files.) I don't allow though copyrighted content, because of DMCA notifications and we're legal company.
