Where To Host Your Audio Files

If you're planning to serve audio files online, knowing where to host them can mean the life or death of your main web site.

It's easy to be modest and think: "Naa, my site's not that popular..." but when the mad rush of people comes, the sudden surge in the requests for your audio files may kill your web server.

Yes, your web server. The place which holds all your other files. Even the non-audio files.

Would you risk losing your audience, just because of a few audio files? Certainly not. That's why it pays to host your audio files on a separate server. Keep it away from your main web site.

(The same thing goes for your video files.)

There are web hosting providers that promote file storage packages. These are not full blown web hosting services, which means they cost less. There's no email or scripting, but there's lots of web space and bandwidth allowance.

And just in case someone popular talks about your web site's audio or video files, the flood of visitors will affect that other server where you stored those multimedia files, not your main web site.

Today's Tip and Action Point: Ask your present web host provider if they have some kind of "file storage only" package.
