Tim has been successful in creating a fundraising campaign on Kickstarter. Kickstarter is great for leveraging the power of the internet to raise money to achieve a dream or start up a company. Tim wanted to create a comic book, and now has to fulfill the orders. He wants to also deliver it digitally. There are a few options to accomplish this for him:
This is a good place to host his comic. They have a deal that's $16 a month for unlimited bandwidth. However, the key there is that no file can be larger than 20MB. So Tim would have to divide the comic book up into chapters to make it manageable.
(Disclaimer: SquareSpace is a sponsor)
Here he wouldn't pay for the bandwidth, just storage. He should pay attention to both peak bandwidth and the total amount of bandwidth he gets a month. That's important for avoiding hidden charges.
- Content Delivery Network (CDN)
This would run about 10-15 cents a GB. Options include Akami and Cachefly. This would also give him fast download times which keeps customers happy.
Unfortunately, this would've been the ideal option for MegaUpload, if Uncle Sam hadn't shut it down.
