Use Web Hosting To Safely Store Files

By Logan Oulman

When deciding upon which web hosting service to use to store files online your primary concern is the type of files you wish to store. You may already know how important file storage is to web hosting, if you did not then you now do. There are a number of reasons a website may need to host some files online, such as steaming music, podcasting, hosting games and video streaming to name just a few.

Option number one is to simply use the space allocated with whichever web hosting plan you went with. This way you just store files on your websites own domain and is really the easiest method to move ahead with. One of the biggest downsides to this technique however is the amount of bandwidth that will be sucked up by people looking at the files.

There are other remote hosting options that you may want to look at, like Box.net, that give you a remote choice for storing your files. These remote sites operate by allowing you to upload your files to the server and then use hotlinks to link the files to your site. This will save you a large amount of bandwidth since you will not have to host your own files, and it will also allow you to store a large amount of files on the host.

If you simply wish to store image files then you can probably get away with storing them securely on image hosting sites. Such sites as Imageshack or Flickr are a great option to use when thinking about storing nothing but images. With these sites though, you may reach a bandwidth cap if you have too many high resolution images.

When searching for a safe way to host your files online you really do need to keep in mind your needs and what kind of data you are looking to store. There are plenty of services out there that could help you, but most of the time you’ll want to store your files directly through your web host.
