This site is very fast. I think I may have to bookmark this and use it to host images for Neowin. Maybe Neowinian should use your service for all their image posting. I upload 93k image and it was instant. Give your site grade A. :)

I don't think a 93k image is a good test :)
I'll upload one of my biggest pron jpegs tonight.

I get ~1.1MB/s which is about 1/4 of my maximum upload speed, are you hosting this on a shared HostGator account? If so, not only will it be slow once there are multiple concurrent uploads / downloads, but you're in violation of their TOS and will probably be banned. There are enough image hosts that have got popular, been unable to fund the server(s) and have had to shut down leaving broken images everywhere, make sure you don't add another one to the list. :p

As long as you're on HostGator's VPS or dedicated servers, you're fine. :)

I tried it out, seemed a little slow for me if im honest, from the UK.

also, i think its very easy to be fast when you have no traffic, try being fast with imgurs traffic

I'm looking at around 2MB/s upload speeds for the smaller images.

I got a peak of around 7MB/s upload for this 9MB I stitched together for a test.

The speeds don't seem to bad at all. I think I'll stick with imgur at the moment simply because I like to have more control over the images, but I've book marked the site anyway for 'times when'.


EDIT: sorry for the large images, was expecting thumbs with links to the bigger images.

I use it all the time now when I don't need things resized but just need a fast image host. For most things I still use imgur. The "large" thumbnail there is exactly the size images need to be for the forum I use most (a Dutch tech forum) and that's pretty convenient. Faster than resizing everything myself.
