Free storage with direct and shorten link option?

edited February 2016 in Providers

I need some small storage where I could store dozens of small images and flags (for example: http://s11.postimg.org/p9ntfffdr/image.png) but with customizable or at least direct link with no random-renaming option so I could use it on forum. Also, shorten link would be nice feature and no expiration date as well.

Can you recommend someone? Thanks!

    Honestly, Droplr is insanely awesome for this. I know, paid service for things you can do for free, but there's value to having a solid desktop client that makes it extremely easy to me... and that value is right about where their cost lands.

    Although I personally use Dropshare with my own storage for free, that's because I'm on a Mac and those who aren't I recommend Droplr to.

    Almost nailed it, but imgur.com changes my file name into 7 letter one - is there any that can keep your file name unchanged?

    I'm sure that at least one of the destinations will keep the file name. If none of them do, you can just setup a NAT vps for a few eur/year and FTP to there

    How short should the URLs be? The problem is, even if you find a short URL site that doesn't rename files, probably people will have used a.jpg, b.jpg, 1.jpg etc.

    you would be best using any 3 letter domain with a 2 letter TLD and a cheap VPS, or even free hosting and storing files that way. So abc.ab/a.jpg

    well, not ultra-short, thinking more of some format like website.com/username/ABC.jpg - that would be ideal.

    images I'm gonna use are very light, so I guess even 100mb hosting would do the trick.

    I have a cool domain for that, but I'm a cheapo and don't want to waste money on hosting :P

    I'd think it would be, since the storage space is limited. It's usually hosts that offer "unlimited storage" who don't let you use it for storing files/backups

    Assuming he isn't storing a stash of CP on it, I don't see this being an issue.

    Thanks for the mention!

    $5/yr for 1gb

    Shared hosting though so no need to set anything up or manage it. Plus dedicated ipv4

    oh come on, 1GB?

  • @netomx said:

    Depends what you're hosting. For just images and personal use, 1gb is enough. For me anyway
