because most hosting companies don't allow adult sites due to massive bandwidth usage, if i wanted to host a site with non-copyright infringing MP3's, would there be a problem? even if i was using more bandwidth than an average adult site?
for example, cwihosting offer a 30gig transfer plan for $30. that means they are assuming most sites wont use anything near 30gigs.
how do you think most hosting companies would feel if my bandwidth usage was at the full bandwidth allowance???

Since 30gb of bandwidth was alloted to you, you have the rights to finish 100% of the bandwidth.
Whether you can host MP3s, you will have to counter-check with your host. Some hosts states that each file that is uploaded on the server can not be more than x mb big.

This will vary from host to host.. You may find your hosting provider throttling your bandwidth as your bandwidth increases. Don't get mad at this. If your site set to allow users to leach as many files as they want all the time, your bandwidth will dissapear much faster causing your site to get suspended or charged extremly high overage charges. If your paying for 30 gigs, then you are entitled to that full 30 gigs. Just contact them as ask them if it will be a problem. One thing you could do is host them with MP3.com. It's free and they have a ton of bandwidth for this sole purpose .

=). You see, you are fully allowed to get what you pay for. But just make sure you ask wheather they will suspend the account or not. They may just put up a fat invoice payment on the next billing date. =)
