    are they legal mp3's ? and if you want high bandwidth you sort of have to pay for it - hence all the crappy slow host's out there for free

    what sort of mp3's you got to put up and how many are you talking ? :D

    and also if you do do the web share thing - does you ISP cap you on ur internet use? mine does at 30 gb a month i think ?

    you get what you pay for. if you want lots of bandwidth you need to pay for it. your ISP does limit your bandwidth, they just don't tell you that. let's put this into perspective.. if you host on your mac... if you turn your mac off, it is no longer able to send files. your host probably only allows about 30k/sec upstream, so maybe 2-3 uploads at a time of your files MAX before you start having problems getting the files through to the viewer on the page. and your ISP will start looking at you with a close eye if your bandwidth starts exceeding their internal bandwidth limitation numbers.

    do you really think it's worth it to host a couple of mp3's... on a myspace account? lol. if you have a band or something, fork over the $5/mo for a host that offers space and bandwidth.. unless you're a big named band you should be ok with 3-5gig of bandwidth a month, then increase plans as your bandwidth needs grow.

    you can always try to get your mp3's hosted on one of those up and coming band sites too. they're around.
