Default Image and Filehosts - The good and the bad

Suggested that a thread be started

These days we have a lot of reported posts concerning bad/untrusty hosts.

I, admit there are some I dont dont touch. Who wont you download from and who do you think are the best.

Discuss the good and the bad here, and ones to avoid at all costs.

ImageVenue:
Pluses: allows adult material, generally reliable, good speed downloads
Minuses: adds 15-20 characters to file names, has been getting less reliable over the last year


ImageBam:
Pluses: allows adult material, reliable, high speed downloads
Minuses: not entirely compatible with download managers


Everything Else - Ads, Pop-ups, Malware, highly restricted downloads either in speed or compatibility with DL managers. I won't bother.

@DTravel,
the question was for filehosts, not picturehosts

reliable filehosts
(1) Rapidshare, They are still the number 1 hoster and they are globally available. even when they treat their free downloaders now with very poor download speed during rush-hour

(2) Megaupload
I am a free- registered user and I get download speeds up to 1950 KByte/sec. It rocks
And as a megaupload-uploader: the new interface and the new functionaliy is great.

(3) netload: is probably only in Europe a reliable hoster

(4) letit_bit: is banned here, but it's a good hoster for Russia and Western europe. Kill me, but that's my opinion

(5) easyshare, depostfiles, filefactory
they have some limitations, but overall they are ok.
----------------------
Those suck:
**************
Ok, they are new and they have to pay money to attack the market-leader. But with this high payment they attrack the scum of all uploaders, greedy penny-cutters who care a rat ass about the quality of their post. This host is not acceptable due to the combination of low hosting quality, spam and the majority of the uploaders. BAN BAN BAN

uploadbox
low quality and low speed

vipfile
extreme low speed for the majority of the hosted files

I use:
4Shared. com
Mediafire. com

Both work ok, and are good alternative when downloading as "free user", there`s no long waiting periods between downloads. 4Shared has 5Gb of free space and you can upload multiple files in row. For me It`s perfect because I only upload pictures.

Depositfiles. com

Quite popular now because of "Free Gold Account"-program, It`s ok filehost but if you download multiple files as a free user It`s painfully slow and limited.

SendSpace
************
Uploading. com
Odsiebe. com
L e t I t B i t. com
Are all nightmarish/crap, these "offer" whole spectrum of all kind minor and major problems: Malware, Tracking cookies , low speed etc. I just try to avoid these, and definitely will not upload to any of those! I have only negative experiences from these.

I`ll give my vote for ban those five!

For Imagehost I only "trust" ImageVenue. ImageBam was very good,Zip-upload was superb! But because now many people, including me, have problems to download from ImageBam with ImageHostGrabber, I only use ImageVenue, it works fine.

I usually post with three preview-pictures and download-link, nice and simple.

Everyone uploads where he/she wants, but for free users It`s nice if you don`t make all your uploads to ONLY one filehost.

I only use one.

ImageVenue

It serves me perfectly as a poster.

Personally i'd be happy if people either used imagevenue or imagebam for pics and rapidshare/megaupload or mediafire for anything else - would make dowloading stuff a bit easier imo

I used to use imagevenue for posting pic sets but I noticed it was missing pictures from the bb-code, happened a few times so now I use imagebam. Theres a thread on this forum somewhere which shows you how to configure imagegrabber so it grabs from imagebam.

Not a fan of easyshare or depositfiles etc, seem to have a really low download limit for free users

It`s just that it doesn`t work for everyone. I have tried it many times, doing everything 100% right. I don`t know if it has something to do with that I`m a Mac user, maybe, maybe not. As long as this problem seems to be alive and kickin` I use ImageVenue.

Sorry, this was a bit off-topic!

@SpirosXTC: What? Images aren't files? Picky, picky, picky.

@zab79: I use ImageGrabber and while you can download the pictures from ImageBam you get a string of gibberish for the file name rather than the "real" file name.


File Hosts

RapidShare:
Pluses: It is the 800 lb gorilla in the room of file hosting sites, premium accounts are cheap and can be extended for free relatively easily, reliable high-speed downloads, account holder files have very long retention.
Minuses: It is the 800 lb gorilla in the room of file hosting sites, apparently blocked or restricted by some ISPs as some people claim to not be able to use it, conflicting claims about files being deleted for copyright violations

MegaUpload(/MegaErotic):
Pluses: The next biggest (after RS), good file retention, reliable good speed downloads
Minuses: Premium accounts are more expensive and not as easily extended,

I can't be bothered to write up more right now but personally I much prefer RapidShare over all others. I can deal with MegaUpload but am not particularly thrilled with it.

kick out '**************' this host sucks for free AND for premium users. Just check out which kind of greedy dumbasses are uploading to this host. This is their internal forum:
http://www.sharemasters.com/viewforum.php?f=13

also bad filehosts are: ********.net, **************, *************

for the picture hosts: just shortlist 5 or 6 reliable hosts like imagebam, imagevenue, ***********, imagesocket and *********** Ban ALL others.
