I have spent a good hour searching but can't find an answer!
I am looking for ideally an established host that will allow me to upload images (not adult) and then hot link to them from an external site, generating up to 300GB of traffic a month.
Most shared hosting I have come across has either poor reviews or won't let you store files which aren't part of a website - obviously there is no website in this case. I know there is Photobucket, Imageshack etc etc but looking for actual hosting as I do have a small site of my own (which doesn't use the images mentioned) and also host another small site for someone else too.
It doesn't matter if it is shared hosting/reseller/VPS (reseller ideally). I have no particular budget in mind (obviously cheaper the better), and would prefer limits rather than 'unlimited'.
Maybe try the Find a Host button at the top; though yea VPS / dedicated will probably be your best solution

Thanks for the suggestions. - I will look into them.
I did try the 'find a host' tool, but only one got back to me, and even that was a copied and pasted response that had no relevance to my requirements.
What about smaller less known hosts - anyone got any recommendations?
Most hosts allow hot linking for image files. Have you had a look in the VPS offers forum? There's quite a number of reputable hosting offers over there.
As other people suggested, a small VPS should fit your needs fairly well. When choosing hosts, you should do a self research, that is the best thing to find your best host, you may get some recommendations here, even then you must do the research by find reliable reviews on them. Best of luck!
