    Question Upload Size Limit by Hosting provider

    i wrote a small web site for my brother-in-laws Graphics business. And it has a contact page where clients can upload 'artwork' they want to have him use.
    it works fine, he can go retrieve the artwork with and download it to his PC with FTP.
    however, the hosting provider i'm using, DotEasy.com, has a 20meg limit on file upload size.

    what kind of work-around is there for this?
    i hate to change hosting providers just over this limitation.
    or, if it is necessary to change, what is a good hosting provider, in the US preferably, that allows upwards of 200meg uploads of single files?

    ... actually, DotEasy does have a larger limit, but i have to switch to their Cloud Based server and there is about a $50 additional charge per month.

    thanks..

    Ask technical support of your hosting provider.

    ok, thanks for the suggestions...
    tech supports answer is to upgrade to their 'cloud' hosting, which costs extra.

    so, this website isn't much.. its mainly for his customers to upload graphics so they don't go thru email, which also has limits.
    are there any suggestions on another hosting provider to switch to?

    I've used superb.net for the last 12 years and highly recommend them. Their Gridiron Pro shared server environment is all you could need for a small number of sites.

    You may want to consider DropBox pages.

    Download Filezilla server to your B in Law computer and have people upload files to his computer using their browser or Filezilla client. This will work if his ISP doesn't block port 21. (Hint, don't use port 21)

    Nothing is free. These free storage cloud deals may be free for a while but all of them get cancelled after a year or two so you have to go hunting for another storage service almost continually.

    $50 more for a cloud server sounds excessive to me. Do a search and look at other companies. By the way, all web hosting is cloud even when no body used the term "cloud" yet. VM's, containers, virtualization are all methods that still run on a computer like all stuff before it and just runs remotely from the actual user.

    Cloud computing is nothing more than using a remote server that is at another location. And no matter what anybody says, remote cloud computing is much more expensive than running stuff on your own computer. Companies didn't spend hundreds of millions on data centers to make nothing and they have to pay off their huge investments. (Actually, you have to help pay off their huge investments)
