    cPanel should have a bandwidth sharing feature that lets website visitors become part of the website's server.

    For example, a person has 1 dedicated server with cPanel and the person wants to reduce his bandwidth use. So he goes into cPanel, chooses bandwidth sharing, and this generates a software, person puts this software on his website and visitors download and run it, and when people access the person's website from now on they will be downloading some data from the web server and some data from all the visitors who have downloaded and running the software that makes their internet connections become part of the server. Of course the people who downloaded the software won't be able to see/edit/delete/download/upload any files on the server.

    I think you're talking about setting up a "peer 2 peer" network, right?

    So some of the website content would be "served" by different peers who have agreed to host the content?

    This would be extremely complicated and difficult to set up and configure, and honestly... I really don't see any need for it.

    There are lots of other ways to deal with high-bandwidth intensive websites that are much less complicated.
    Stop hovering to collapse... Click to collapse... Hover to expand... Click to expand...
