I basically want to know what is quite difference – i’m thinking of running tutorial site with quite videos around (200) of them – i already made it so – I want to host all video from my website – NOT FROM Youtube or any other site. In all web-hosting site like – Web.com or inmotionhosting.com – they provide you unlimited bandwidth – will my website will be fast enough to load video – my user limit will be around 50 – a day and A video size will be around 25 mb each. – What is better VPS or just common web hosting ? please answer !
Thank You .
Unlimited bandwidth does NOT exist, it is a marketing term. Every host that offers “Unlimited” hosting also has restrictions on how much load you can put on the server, and “load” is often undefined or simply described as server resources. You will be suspended for using too much server resources long before you reach anything you might consider to be unlimited.
Hosts that offer unlimited plans will often have specific limits on the kinds of things that you are allowed have on your site. Multimedia and video would often be specifically be excluded. Every host is different, you need to read the exact details from the host site.
With a vps the hosting plan has specific limits in terms of disk space and bandwidth, but those are real limits, as long as you abide by them you will be ok.
You should seriously consider the vps option, in the long run you will have much less grief.
