Thread: Photobucket is shutting down Hotlinking

  1. #11

    $150/month isn't much more than bog-standard residential "high speed" internet here. Unfortunately most people don't see it that way because they are bamboozled by the "bundling" nonsense.

    When I had a commercial static IP account and my own server farm, (incidentally I did offer a service like Photobucket, without the ads), it cost me about $300/month, not including the cost of the domain name.
    Be polite and I may let you live.

    Photobucket must be smoking the good stuff. I don't know who would pay $30/month just to hotlink some images. You don't need a VPS either. Cheap shared hosting is fine for static images.

    Yuck, have to find somewhere else to host my images then. Honestly I think my photobucket account must be 10 years old by now.
    I have shared hosting, can just dump them there. I used photobucket for the convenience but it's not worth $360/year.

    Are you alluding to the McGurk effect that shows that the difference between a B and an F is in the mind?

I can't even use my Slingbox. It's stupid.
    So much for net neutrality...

    You have probably said this, but where exactly is "here"? Star One doesn't come up on my GPS.

    How about OneDrive or Google Drive? Free I think albeit the amount of storage is less than if you are a paying customer.

    If you choose the "high quality" setting instead of the "original quality" setting on Google photos, the storage is free and unlimited.

    Google Drive gives you 15GB of storage, which is shared with Gmail and Google Photos. Check your settings here: https://www.google.com/settings/storage

    And if you own a Pixel phone you get unlimited original quality storage to your photos. The only down side is there is no real hotlinking to them, but the page you can link to is very light on the non-photo elements.
