How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?
Hi folks, I host a medium sized non-commercial audio-only podcast available through the standard ways (website streaming, itunes, stitcher, zune, etc). All these ways of listening are hotlinked back to a simple ftp server running on a VPS. We've recently been asked to leave that VPS because we're averaging 50GB per day of traffic.
I'm looking for a new method of hosting these media files. Transfer speed doesn't matter much, so long as people don't get refused a connection, but overall bandwidth per month does. Also, all the actual site hosting, rss, and other podcasting stuff is already handled and we're not looking to change it. Literally all we need is a new place to store and distribute our media files with hotlinks.
So far, the best solutions I've found are an order of magnitude more expensive that what we have now. All podcast CDNs seem to charge by the GB of transfer, or GB on disk, or both. All the regular webhosting I've found turns me away when they hear that 50GB per day number. I've considered getting several VPSes and trying to balance the load, but that would be an awkward solution, and a badly coded one as well if I had to do it myself. Is there anything I'm missing? I'm willing to look into anything.
