    Default I guess thats it

    OK, It looks like I'm going to have to use FTP to get this done. Then setup a cron-jon to run a script that checks for new unconverted-files.

    I also will be adding a few low-traffic websites to go along with this, maybe a joomla or drupal or some other cms's.

    So, given that, What package would you suggest for ftp'ing 1-2 gig files a few times a month, and then converting them to flv.

    Which package would you guys suggest?

    Depends on how long those large files are going to stay on the server. If you keep the original and the flv you are going to run out of space very quickly. What are your plans for this?

    Cross Platform Graphical Secure FTP (SFTP) Clients

    Check this out. It is a JAVA app that you can embed in a browser for your clients to upload files via FTP. You could then setup one FTP account for the website. I believe it will also do gzip compression on the client side, to limit your bandwidth.

    I am using the RADPro product which uses HTTP and it works well and is very configurable.

    Yes, but since all your servers are dedicated, and are specifically configured for large file transfers, I still think rad upload will get disconnected after a period of time on a shared box.

    The originals, once they're converted, will probably be deleted. A few maybe downloaded once and then deleted. I will probably install an open source file browser and there will be someone assigned to check and delete unwanted files.

    How easy is it to upgrade from a VPS? Would the process go smoothly with any downtime. Just in case I end up exceeding the limits. But that is highly doubtful this early on.

    VPS to dedicated is not too bad, it really depends on the site activity and number of clients that are constantly visiting the site. it can definitely be done without downtime, but if your databases are active, you might want to shut them down for a bit during the transfer and DNS propagation period. I always say just start with a dedicated though, that way there is no need to move anything later when you do get big. What sometimes happens is people realize they need a dedicated too late and it creates a lot of work trying to get the old site and new site synchronized during the propagation period.

    Thanks for the warning. I'll keep that in mind.

    Does a VPS come with the free domain?

    Hello,
    unfortunately, we do not provide free domain with VPS packages.
