    Unhappy Any Image Only Hosts?

    Do you know of any hosts that host or support images, so I can link directly to them on forums and chat?

    I don't think there are host that mind you doing that at all... only the free ones hate it, since they are used for that purpose most of the time... If you pay for hosting and don't exceed bandwidth I think it's ok at everyone.... Depends ofcourse on the image type ...

    5MB of space for $4? and $6 for them to allow you to link to it?
    Thats rediculous.
    and besides, people are not allowed to promote themselves in the lounge anyway.
    You need to post in the offers section.
    I am sure summcat will get better offers for hosting images, as all hosts allow you to link to them as long as you have enough transfer allowance.
    DANG DANG! DANG!!
    I know ***** ripped off everybody else, but they wouldn't do it to me.

    A starred out name (****) means they have been banned from these forums. Usually not a good sign.
    You have many choices, just do a little research and you shall find the right host for you.

    hint: posting in the webhosting requests section will allow people who follow the rules here to make you offers based on your needs. Don't take the first offer you get, and always do a search on their name to see if any others have comments about them.
    Good luck.

    Also, because their bandwidth gets consumed without their ads being served.

    Yes... image hotlinking can be a problem with a lot of hosts I know.

    I had a customer, that ran a webcam on her site. She also posted her webcam image on several cam portals. Each one leeching bandwidth, etc. She paid a full year of hosting, and within 1 month, she used up all that money -- just for bandwidth that was used. She initially had a 8gb bandwidth account, and quickly used that up within 5 days of being hosted. She then asked for more bandwidth - and me being a friend, said yes, and told her "I can't keep on doing this - its costing me money". And by the end of the month, she used up 30gb of bandwidth (more than all the rest of the accounts on the server combined). I told her, "I can't keep on doing this each month -- if you want to use that much bandwidth, you either have to pay for it - or move out" And I also didnt' give her a refund for the rest of the year, because the amount of bandwidth that she used that one month, cost everything that she paid for for the year. Luckily, she understood -- and I didn't have to pay $100+ for the bandwidth charges out of my own pocket.

    --Moral of the story--
    If you want to use images on message boards, etc. Know, that everytime someone views a post, its going to use up bandwidth. Be prepared to pay for overages, etc.

    Places will allow it -- but they wont like it -- especially when it starts to use up system resources. So beware!

    Am I the only one to whom this remark doesn't make sence at all? Is there a post deleted or something, since I dont see any offer before ATST posted his reply ...

    As was stated earlier, most real hosts....meaning not the unlimited bandwidth crowd....should have no problems with this. You should review the host's AUP/TOS to ensure that there are no limitations or just ask the host.
