    Web Host Images

    Hello,

    I have noticed that some web hosts have images of computers, servers, and other related things on their web sites. I would like to know where these images could be found.
    Thanks,

    Check out www.gettyimages.com, excellent selection of great images and the prices aren't bad.

    Well, many hosts use pictures of the servers as a.. more of an attraction. There is nothing wrong with doing this unless they say "Oh the picture over there is one of our servers" and when in fact, it is not.

    Many hosts cant find a picture of thier rack so they just take another. I think it is ok to do this as they usually aint tryin to sell you the service through the picture, but rather make thier site look cool.

    What kind of cop out is that? Well, I guess if they/you are just a rackshack host sure they/you can't find a picture of THEIR/your rack because they/you don't own one.

    If you have your own racks, take a picture of yours, all of those stock photos look so stock that anyone with a good eye can see it.

    And if you do that and put the images on your site, you're with 99.99% certainty infringing on the copyright of one or several people.

    Ask the manufacturer of your equipment if they have any photographs you can use on your site.
