Do you have a website that needs lots of bandwidth?
Maybe you have big files or video downloads, e-books, streaming
media, podcasting, etc?
ET Web Hosting now offers "file hosting" packages, designed
specifically for customers who need lots of premium bandwidth and disk space at
a good price.
Note: This is NOT
cheap no-name bandwidth from low-cost providers. This is the highest
quality bandwidth that money can buy, and is the same premium
level bandwidth we use for our regular hosting packages. (Multiple
world-class peering, multiple backbone connections, extremely
low latency, etc.)
Our file server packages are perfect for anyone who needs a highly
reliable place to host their files with lots
of premium high-quality bandwidth available. Basically, it's a set
of massive file servers which will pump out your bandwidth-intensive
files over the same solid network
infrastructure we use for our regular hosting.
What You Get.
Each file server account comes with one FTP user, unlimited subdomains,
and a control panel where you can login to check the details of
your bandwidth usage and statistics. To keep the file servers running
as smoothly and efficiently as possible, there is no php/cgi/mysql
and no email service. This is true "files-only" hosting.

Using your ET Web hosting file server account to "serve"
your files is very easy. If you have any questions about how anything

Let's imagine you have a website called yourdomain.com
and it has lots of big video files that your visitors download or
view online. Your visitors are important, and you need lots of good
quality bandwidth so they can download or view the videos without
Here's how you could use your file server hosting account:
- Sign up for a new account using the files.yourdomain.com
- Modify the DNS for yourdomain.com so that files.yourdomain.com
points to the IP address we will give you. (Our helpdesk staff
can help you with this step.)
- Use any FTP program to upload all your videos to your ET Web
Hosting file server account.
- Change all the links on your website that point to your videos
from yourdomain.com to files.yourdomain.com.
That's it. Now all your video files will be delivered to your customers
directly from your ET Web Hosting file server account, and your
regular website files and email will continue just like they were

** Note: These are single domain plans and include DNS hosting.
You are welcome to sign up with a subdomain (ie: files.yourdomain.com),
but you will need to update the DNS for your domain to point your
subdomain to the IP we will give you. Don't worry, our helpdesk
can assist with this if you need help.
