Hi, I have a situation that decides my hosting solution. I have a django site that has to serve a lot of support files like drivers etc. I've got these files on a server with static IP in my country where is most of my userbase. But I don't have an option to host my web page on that server. Is it possible to route my static files serving to my own server if I host my site on your hosting? Also it would be great if you have some read on the matter so I know how to enable that sort of thing.

This is possible if you don't mind hosting your files separate subdomain.

Say, for example, your domain was 'example.com'. If you host your 'main' site with us, you can host 'downloads.example.com' with your old host.

This is really simple to set up: you just point your domain at our nameservers, create a new subdomain in the control panel then set up a DNS override pointing it back to your old server.
