Multimedia features can be quite unique when it comes to web hosting. There are some very important factors that go into the creation and web hosting of a multimedia site.The factors that play an integral role in the web hosting of a multimedia site are:

* Space ? Most multimedia sites have music and video archives that browsers can go through. So an estimate of the library space needs to be made in the initial stages, and there should be an extra 30% disk space that will allow for expansion.
* Bandwidth ? Streaming videos and music require a lot of bandwidth, and an average multimedia site can easily be above 1 Mb file size.
* CPU/ RAM Usage ? This is extremely necessary for a multimedia web hosting service. A server will have only a particular processing and RAM power, and a lot more people get suspended for over-usage of CPU/ RAM.
* Technical Support ? For the successful web hosting of a multimedia site, a fast and efficient technical support team is needed to resolve the frequent troubles that will come up.
