Cheap online storage with direct linking


Question

+Dick Montage

My domain and hosting provider offer extra storage space for my package, but it's really expensive and bandwidth caps too.

 

I was wondering if anyone can suggest where to host files that will allow absolute direct linking from my current site but at a more reasonable price.  I'm talking MP3's of mixes, some hi-res 360 imagery and so on.

 

Thanks

What do you consider expensive?

 

Where are you currently hosting?

 

I have been with dreamhost for years.. Like 120 a year.. have no limits or bandwidth limits.

Their hosting packages are fine, but when it comes to adding any storage or bandwidth, it's totally disproportionate to their pricing models.

I'm very much open to moving host, and I've no geographic restrictions (it's only my blog).

 

Thank you for the suggestion :)
