1. I would choose VPS or Dedicated for something like that since they provide more resources and you would have more control.
2. We do not have online chat but you can email dedicated@lunarpages.com to discuss either VPS or Dedicated or call 714-521-8150 and choose dedicated.
3. You might try searching Google for a coupon though I am not sure any are provided for VPS/Dedicated. Check also http://lpdedicated.com and http://www.lunarpages.com/virtual-private-server/
4. We charge to install an SSL cert
5. You do get a free dedicated IP with VPS or Dedicated.
6. We can host Chinese websites and do support that character set. The servers are here in the US.

You will need either a VPS or dedicated plan as provided by Katrina, since you wish to have a music download site. Basic, Business, Windows will not fit your need.

SSL certificates are not free and they do cost money as mentioned again by Katrina.

I am not sure about foreign access being slow as from my own experience and knowledge outside the U.S. have no issues with Dedicated or VPS servers.

You can review the lunarpages speed test if you are still concerned.

if you upload mp3 files to your server then it will cause a copyright issue I think.
not sure whether luna allows warez

warez is illegal, so it is not allowed on the server.

Just because it is a music upload, audition and download site doesn't make it copyright infringement. It is possible they have copyright to the materials they are providing. I would like to hope the audition part means the person uploads a demo and auditions, then other people can download the demo and auditions, which would be similar to some of the indie record labels out there. If it isn't copyrighted material they own or the people uploading own and can upload legally, then we would suspend the site.
