  1. Hello! I'm hoping to understand a bit better about the power of cloud hosting. I work with a lot of podcasters, and the larger ones we always put on a dedicated provider such as blubrry, libsyn, etc so they can handle the bandwidth. Traditionally, smaller podcasters we've run on regular shared hosting via WordPress since the bandwidth requirements are small. Is HawkHost's cloud hosting a reasonable replacement for something like Libsyn? Can it handle the bandwidth properly of a large show hitting it with download requests all at once? I'm just throwing numbers out there, but some of these shows get thousands and thousands of downloads of ~50MB MP3 files or so. Let's say 500 people try to get that file all at once, is this no problem for Cloud Hosting (provided it's within the bandwidth of the chosen hosting package) or would performance be poor as opposed to something like Libsyn? Thanks!
