Is it possible to use any of these ‘Free File Hosting/Sharing Cloud Storage Sites’ to store pictures, music, video, applications and other assets of my website and hotlinked, so that when anybody visits my site and my webpage loads in his browser – these pictures or other assets also load and go live seamlessly as part of that page?
Thank you so much for this! I recently boycotted Photobucket after it decided it wanted to show my photos on an as-wanted basis, and was totally stoked about Dropbox until I realized that they were dynamic links and my forum won't support it, so you are a lifesaver!
As a side note, however, for services that do not allow dynamic pages to be used, you have to delete the text after the file extension.
Remove the ?dl=0 for it to work properly.
Can i create more then 1 account on Ge.tt
Thanks for sharing
Thanks for this article, I found it very useful, however it looks like the copy.com direct link option no longer works – does anyone know a way around this? – Thanks
Thank you so much for both the invitation to Dropbox and the Dropbox hotlink tutorial!!! I was so disappointed that kiwi6, another audio streaming site, began placing limitations on upload file size on free users. I can’t believe I found something even better! Thank youuuuu~
None of these work anymore, they’ve added fixes to prevent direct linking.
I usually using dropbox to save my konten and then download it via it’s direct link. It’s very useful
copy.com is/was with direct links (suitable to play in browsers via ‘audio’ tag, including buggy chrome ), but it will close on 1 May of 2016.
uploadfiles.io – only for 30 days of inactivity, which is unsuitable as a storage for sites.
it offers permanent storage now 🙂
could you recommend a secure Cloud facility which also has filedrop facilities which can be embedded in websites?

Chaitanya … just wanting to thank you for the tip about drpbx and the slightly longer domain extension … works like a charm. thanks again.
Another great option is https://www.filedog.io/. It offers free, anonymous uploads without registration and unlimited downloads. It’s super simple to use. You just drag and drop, your file is instantly uploaded, and you get a nice human readable link like filedog.io/BigDog. It also works well on mobile!
June 2017, Photobucket has discontinued hotlinking, unless you pay $40/month for premium account.
i use https://birdload.com/ it have unlimited storage fo free
when i buy i premium account i have a better downloade speed but its wayne in my country (turkey) the internet speed is slow and so is a free account very good 🙂
when you buy a premium account then please buy it with my ref link … https://birdload.com/?aff=efb2767bd2e022aa
