Where to store on line an organization's library of 70 Mbs? On Web.com or IDrive?

The library is to be password protected and the content read only.  Web.com has an address set up for the organization.  I know use it for protected access web mail.  Idrive has access with my personal address.  I could set up a new account on IDRIVE using the organizations name.   Which would provide the password login with read only access but with the download capability?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you are thinking of using this as a means to share databases that multiple people will update, think again.

As long as this is always read only and no user will EVER be able to update the files, then it doesn't matter which file hosting site you use.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for the help.   If I use WEB.com how would I create a login address and folders to store the files?  The documents will be downloaded and used for instructions and general information.  It would be more like a mini Library not like a shared database source for editing.   I would be in control of what is changed if anything.  I have not used a web site as a document storage area.  Only as a source for a Web Site display.  I'm not sure Web.com can be used like this?

I don't know anything about web.com.  You will need to talk to them.  Their hosting plans indicate they support FTP.  That should work for what you need.

In the EE community is a internet group shared data source used. to supply documents to a user community?

Seems like a sensible solution for a library set up on the internet for community access.

The EE people created their own Web app.

Did you ever talk to the Web.com people?  I'm sure they have sales people who can talk to you about features and cost.
