Looking for a reliable file hosting service (for LEGAL files no mp3s, no videos, no trouble) with direct hotlinking allowed. The filehost should have a simple control panel, no complicated settings, no headaches. 1 GB and even less of storage should be fine. Any experience with FileBurst of SWMirror? Thanks!

Thank you but Dropbox doesn't allow hotlinking, instead it links to a download page so is not what i'm looking for.

Find a cheap hosting package, you can pick them up for pennies/month or a bit extra for a whole year, you'll get plenty of space & bandwidth and you can do what you want with it.

Yep just hosting it somewhere and sticking a domain on it would be simple and effective.

Get dropbox and go to: https://www.dropbox....e_public_folder
You can still get a direct link that way if I'm correct ^^ (checking now) It's working!!!!!

Yeah if you use the Public folder, it's a direct link when you right click the file and choose copy public link.
