    With something like that, you will want a VPS to start off with. If all goes well, you start making money, you could get a Dedicated Server.

    How much do you want to spend?

    File hosting is not that process intensive as websites. Every web hosting providers gives you FTP account, unlimited bandwidth. Simple coding work in your website will take care of file sharing.

    Check out pacifichost.com as this company provides really good and secure web hosting and skillful and responsive support services. I can recommend you to check their Premium web hosting plans. The Premium Hosting provides an additional platform for you to move to if you outgrow your shared hosting. The plans offer a different level of CPU allotment depending on the plan.

    I can also share coupon code: giveme20 which will save you 20% off the price on all plans.
    So, take your time to contact them directly for further details.

    Whatever you choose, when it comes to File Hosting, know that a dedicated server is the only real guaranteed option for success. Anything less than that means overloaded servers, cancellations, angry customers, angry host, etc.
