    I have hosting via hostwinds and would like to know, is there a maximum number of connections up bandwidth allowed.

    Im working on software that may require hundreds of FTP connections and a fair bit upload bandwidth, if this is problem with hostwinds, could someone suggest another host.

    I would ask Hostwinds.
    Usually you are able to limit the number your self, but if you dont set a limitation there shouldn't be any,
    however, this doesn't mean your hosting doesn't have its limitation, ask them.

    Ask hostwinds, usually they cap per IP connections.

    If you're gonna need a heavy duty FTP service I would recommend you run a dedicated server and set up the FTP yourself. Most FTP servers do limit the number of simultaneous users, usually you get a message like "3 out of 5 slots currently taken" or something like that.
