Hosting Advice for Noob

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Hi Everyone

I’m looking for some advice and recommendations on how best to achieve the following service for my customers, and hope that some kind soul would lend me their expertise.

I sell home theatre systems which run XBMC, and am looking to introduce a service which will allow my clients to remotely update to the latest version of my software.

The ‘add-on’ which enables the update needs to be able to copy files to the local hard drive. The files in question consist of hundreds of small files, which together total circa 1.5GB.

XBMC currently supports the following protocols:

1.1 AFP
1.2 FTP
1.3 HTTP
1.4 NFS
1.5 RSS media source
1.6 Samba
1.7 SFTP
1.8 Slingbox
1.9 SMB
1.10 UPnP
1.11 WebDAV

To begin with, the number of simultaneous downloads will be small, but I hope that in the future this could rise to hundreds.

Would someone be able to advise how they feel this would be best achieved?

I would like to keep speeds as fast, and costs as low as possible.

I have limited experience when it comes to web hosting so please be kind!

Thank you

Sam
