    Most free hosts won't allow you to serve images/movies from their servers on pages you have on another place. This means that you are using their bandwith but not displaying any pages, so you are not displaying their ads.

    In the heady days of a few years ago free hosting was everywhere. I'm sure most of us started out on a freehost (mine was, later owned by the Go network, now long dead), but nowdays it's a rarer beast though still abel to be found. As Ahmad says though most won't allow 'leeching', the act of using their bandwidth for nothing more than file storage, and they prevent hotlinking.

    I don't really blame them though. With the ad revenue so low now for 'sponsered' hosting they need to get as many people to see those ads as possible.
