    Hi, may I recommend https://yetishare.com/, it is a pre-made file hosting script that allows users to create their own file upload service.
    Kind regards,

    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?

    1. Chaitanya November 8, 2014

      Hi Badol, yes its possible to hotlink them, i have used dropbox to load scripts as well as images on my website directly in browser 🙂

  4. Amy November 24, 2014


    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!

  5. Amy November 24, 2014

    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.

    ex. yourfilename.jpg?dl=0

    Remove the ?dl=0 for it to work properly.

    1. Chaitanya November 24, 2014

      Yes, Amy i forgot to add that point 😛 , thank you 🙂
      and happy that my trick helped you 🙂

    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~

  18. Vasya February 27, 2016

    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.

  19. Vasya February 27, 2016

    uploadfiles.io – only for 30 days of inactivity, which is unsuitable as a storage for sites.

    1. Ryan June 3, 2016

      it offers permanent storage now 🙂

  20. Catherine MacLeod March 2, 2016

    could you recommend a secure Cloud facility which also has filedrop facilities which can be embedded in websites?

    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!

  24. Victor July 24, 2017

    June 2017, Photobucket has discontinued hotlinking, unless you pay $40/month for premium account.
