Does anyone know of any free web hosts which allow hotlinking (linking to an image or file from another site)? Most do not. T-Online does, if you read/write german.

If all you need is a place to put an avatar; http://www.boomspeed.com
You can sign up for a 1MB account here to store images and hotlink to them. It is intended to be used with auction sites, but would work for avatars just as well.

If you wanted to put up a homepage also; http://freewebsitehosting.net
I found a 6-month-old post saying this place allows hotlinking, but their site does not say one way or the other. They do use an ad banner.

Also try http://www.ranchoweb.com/ for avatars. They're pretty fast, and they give you enough space for lots of avatars.

EDIT: Woops... Just checked and they're not free anymore... Apparently, you can't upload anymore without paying... I haven't uploaded anything for quite a while there, so I didn't know... Sorry...

Just an additional info about T-Online I read today: Their free homepage is reduced from 10 to 2 MB now. Homepage Plus costs money <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/puppyeyes.gif" alt="" />

www.freewebs.com gives you 100mbs plus it's free plus it has NO ADS!!!!!!!!!
The only bad thing about it is that it tells you how much space somethings used in bytes, I really hate that because its ok to work out into kbs but when you start to get into mbs an dhow much space you've used over all it's a pain.

It say's it can't hotlink things but it works fine for me.


well...so long and thanks for all the info

hm... But you don't always get to see the pics. Unless you visit the page/site first.
Still... seems one of the best though.

Yeah I know, it can be a pain, I don't know who can see them and who can't, Raze can see them fine but kiya sometimes has problems.

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/think.gif" alt="" /> Hey maybe we should put a sentance under all our screenies saying: If you can't see the pic ture go to this web address (put the address here) and then you'll probably see it fine!!!!!!! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> LOL

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/offtopic.gif" alt="" /> or maybe it's ontopic since we're talking about avatars, Draghermosran I can't see your avatar.

The FreeWebs FAQ says that they do not allow hotlinking.
I have not had any trouble seeing Kathy's hotlinked images (even after emptying my temporary internet folder) and assumed they did allow it. I didn't check the site out as closely as I could have before suggesting to Kathy that she post the link in this topic. Sorry to anyone inconvenienced.
I think maybe they have the site mirrored on different servers, and one of them is not blocking hotlinking. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

Draghermosran's site appears to be gone, not just the avatar.

@ Kathy
We sometimes did that on the old forum. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/silly.gif" alt="" />
Really!
I checked out a lot of hosts, together with kiya.
But I think there's none who offers real free hosting, and doesn't mind links without banners and/or other stuff unless you pay for it.
ICQ, geocities/yahoo,... we tried them all.

Setharmon; where did you sign up, and did the gif file not work at all, or not work with hotlinking?

When I go to http://freewebsitehosting.net I don't see anything about searching for other free web hosts. I guess you have to start signing up first, or something. They do have their own accounts, which may possibly allow hotlinking (according to a 6 month old post, anyway). From their technical specifications page;

I signed up for a free homepage. Just to check it out.
They have their own "tool" to help you create your page.
The first pic. (that gif.file) I tried to upload didn't showed up on the homepage. I tried a few times.
Maybe I should try jpeg, bmp and some other files... but that will have to wait. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

What don't you know what to do, there's a good tutorial on another site I know (you have to sign up for something though so I'll just PM you with it, is that OK?)
