Image Hosting (Germany?)

October 7, 2020

May 5, 2008

We have an image hosting project, which uses ~5Tb/mo,

Currently we are running it on Pentium D 2,8GHz CPU (Dual Core), 1Gb RAM, 2�160Gb 7200rpm IDE HDD for ~170$/mo.

We don’t need much better hardware, but need some good hdds (IDE sucks) + RAID.

Stats for 20.03.08-30.03.08 (10 days) – incoming: 35 Gb, outgoing: 1.3 Tb
So it’s about ~4 Tb/mo. And we want 5-6Tb for a reserve.

Keyweb doesn’t allow image hosting on their servers

Best choice is OVH, but I’m not in Germany..

I have developed website which will allow user to upload 1-2 photos and also allow to see other users photo and rate them. For this I have planned to go for VPS. I am also thinking of another alternative of using image hosting service, where I will keep all user photos on image hosting server and embed links given by image server in my webpage.

Now my question is.

1) Using image hosting is faster(respone time for each user) than VPS?

2) How exactly using image hosting works. when user request web page from my server, will my server go and fetch entire image from image server and then send final result to user brower?

where I can host images for my site. It will be thousands of smaller image like 5k – 30k. I am looking at free sites like imageshak. They say in their terms of service that I can host images for my site as long as I don’t host all my images. So do you think that I could put like 20 thousand images on their site? These images would not get accessed too much so it won’t slam their servers or anything.

My goal is to block hotlinking of fullsize images and display a image when they attempt it… but allow clickable thumbnails to be shown. For some reason the following isn’t working…

My htaccess looks like this:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /images

#Allow if it’s not from another website
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^$ [OR]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^[url]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} ^[url]

#Allow if it’s the hotlink.gif
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} hotlink.gif [NC,OR]

#Pass through thumbnails or hightlights as-is
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .thumb.jpg$ [NC,OR]

#Return an anti-hotlink gif in place of any visual media
RewriteRule .*.(jpe?g|gif|bmp|png)$ css/images/hotlink.gif [R,L,NC]

i have plan to build a image hosting. I will build a site using script like this . I need some advise.

I trust i will get about 7k-10k page view everyday , may be 1k-2k unique visitor, just see image on my site, not direct link.

– Of course, i will start with shared hosting. But in future, do i need to updrage vps or server ?

– Does Image hosting make server load highly, using more resource on server?

– All images is legal and have adult content, of course sometime it will have some illegal image ( will be banned and deleted )? Can HPs will allow?

I am wondering if there is disk image hosting? like, I may create disk image there, when

I swich to another ISP, I may restore the image I created. I could be very helpful for server migration or data backup.

Does anybody know whether this kind of service exists?

I own a social network generating over 50 million page views a month. Currently, I use only one massive server. I want to add in a new server just for image serving, as my current server is killing me with high bandwidth costs.

Server A runs the website and the logic
Server B runs runs the images

What would be a good architecture between the two servers, given that they ARE NOT IN THE SAME hosting infrastructure (SoftLayer is not a great option if you want alot of bandwidth)

If a user changes his photo on Server A which runs the site, somehow Server B must be notified and gets a hold of the new image….. what would be the most technically feasible and optimum way to achieve this?

What’s the best thing to go with? Is it a VPS or a Dedi?

I am currently on a shared package with a US company. However, I’d like to bring the site into the UK hosting domain, and perhaps closer to where I live.

Location in the UK isn’t important.

What’s the best thing to go with? VPS or Dedi? Or to remain on my US shared?

Currently at about 35GB bandwidth for this month. And the site’s only been open 2 months. So will need over 200GB a month with room to expand.

And about 50GB space minimum if possible… :-/

I have a dedicated that is oversized for the task (Q6600, 8gig RAM, Sata Raid-10 array), which is running a medium/small vBulletin site.

I have thought about providing free image hosting for the members, so I could have 100-300 people hosting sig images and other graphics on the server, which they in turn would link into forums and other places which could create quite a few requests for those graphics.

Is there anyway to quantify what type of load this static, image hosting would create?

The server currently is typically around .05 to .1 server load with nearly flatlined CPU’s.

I have a website built with asp .Net with MS SQL database. The website have some pages that uploads images and files in some folders.

I have tried GoDaddy shared Windows hosting. But they don’t seem to allow file upload using a script.

Then I tried GoDaddy Virtual Dedicated. The tech guy told me MS SQL would be part of the hosting. Later I find he lied, there is no MS SQL as part of it.

I am trying to find an affordable hosting that has MS SQL and also allows file upload using script.

I have a pet project that I am working on in Frankfurt, Germany. My problem is, I can’t seem to find any retailers that have server grade components.

Err as an edit, I am hoping to build my own 1U/2U rackmounts and avoid big box stuff like dell, hp, ibm etc. I’m a big supermicro fan if anyone knows a supermicro retailer it would be perfect.

If you got a dedicated server in Germany not running on maxium load and would like to make some money I’d be interested in running a small gameserver from your machine.

I recently changed my small image hosting website to a dedicated server.

My previous server was a cPanel.

Current server is Directadmin.

I’ve restored the database and files, however I’ve noticed that the URL upload (Where you input the URL to a image file, and the script grabs the image and reuploads on the server) doesn’t seem to work.

Half of the admin panel is distorted and missing half of the options.

My server hosted with (and therefore in Germany) has been down since 6PM UK time (20 hours ago) – support is just excruciatingly bad – the structure they have set up to make sure the actual datacentre people aren’t customer facing is atrocious… you can’t speak to anyone who knows anything, it’s so frustrating.

I’m writing this to ask if anyone else has a root server in Germany as the latest fob off is that a router CPU has gone down knocking all those root servers offline. I’m surprised to not have seen any other threads from disgruntled customers if that were the case. They even added the router is in Canada… which begs the question – why would that knock out my German server??

My server isn’t even accessible by the serial console and the reboot/recovery system isn’t restoring it – they swear it’s network related, but surely I’d be able to get in via the serial console?

This is winding me up good and proper, I can’t concentrate on any other work and I just find myself trying to find other ways of getting any kind of real information out of 1and1 given their complete lacklustre attitude to coming forward with any themselves. 1 hour of downtime I can put up with, 20 hours without a hint of belivable feedback is just unacceptable…

I am testing out a proxy we have in NY, and a proxy we have in Japan. The computer that I am using is in Toyoseu, Japan. What I want to know is why, when navigation to the website:

it takes longer to load using the Tokyo proxy. Normally, I would think that it would be shorter than having to go to the NY proxy, get the site, and then come back.

We need to get another dedicated server in Germany for a video application (so low latency and high-quality connectivity are crucial). Our current server is hosted with NetDirekt in Frankfurt — our first year with them has been very good. However I want the next server located in a different city, for redundancy.

My considerations:
– English-speaking sales & support
– Highly reliable network
– Low latency to Germany users

Do you have any recommendations among the following short-list of providers?

Is Amsterdam a suitable location if I’m serving German end-users? Latency matters a lot… so if a German datacenter saves 20ms of latency, that’s important.

Do you know of any other comparable providers — especially ones that do not require a 12-month contract?

Purpose: I want to make my site load faster

Different Options Host images under the same domain – So no additional three way TCP handshake required.

Different subdomain for images – Browser pipelining can be utilized.

Different domain altogether – Browser pipelining can be utilize and also can avoid the site wide cookies with every request.

What is your opinion about this?
