Free Hot linking For Your files

To write a good post, you will need to post images, audios, videos, flash files, JavaScript files etc. This can only be achieved if you setup an account with a free file hosting service. If you have ever used Google page creator, you will easily understand what I mean by hot linking. Just the way you upload your files at GPC and get unique URLS for your files, you do exactly the same at a free file hosting service which offers hot linking. 

What is Hot Linking ?

Hot linking means, directly embedding or linking to a resource on another server, such as an image or video, so that it appears to be part of the linking website. When you get an HTML code from an image hosting site or video hosting site and you paste it on your posts, the image or video appears instead of that code. This is called embedding. To embed an image, flash file, video etc. you must get separate URLs for your files and getting these unique URLs in other words is called hot linking.

Where to Upload these Files to get Hot Linking ?

There are many free file hosting services like:

Google Sites

You can host your files at Google sites by simply setting up an account plus you can create your own personal website using site.Google.com. Unfortunately the storage capacity is as little as 100MB. But Google Sites dominate all other services when it comes to upload and downloading speed.  I just love it and rate it 10 out of 10 for keeping your files safe forever.

Important: Google Sites do not allow upload of JavaScript Files.


Sigmirror  is a good website but I would recommend it only if you don’t want to sign up for an account and have your image files hosted for free. Moreover many JavaScript files that are uploaded here work just fine. Below are some of its features You receive :
  • 5GB of space
  • Max file size 10mb
  • 7GB of Daily bandwidth!
  • Hotlinking allowed on all files (no more download timers!)
  • No Image Watermarks
  • Many file formats permitted
  • Illegal/Pornographic content not allowed
Important: I wont guarantee its security. Your files can not be 100% secured!


Boxstr is a good website with a user friendly interface and some unique features like a User Dashboard.
Some of its features are,
  • Storage Capacity: 5.0 GB
  • Max Upload per File: 1.0 GB
  • Daily Bandwidth: 1.0 GB
You can see above that you can upload a file as larger as 1GB!, which no other hosting service offers!
Here is a screenshot of Boxstr.com dashboard.

Important: I wont guarantee its security. Your files can not be 100% secured! Your files can get deleted during site maintenance.


  • Use Google Sites For Uploading any file other than JavaScript. It is highly Secured. After all it is ran by Google.
  • Use Sigmirror and Boxstr for uploading JavaScript files and other heavy files like movies, songs, games, software etc. It is not a 100% secured site. Sometimes during maintenance of these sites all your data gets deleted.


There is another website by the name of HotLinkFiles.  

Please do never set up an account with them. They are just frauds with a stupid and highly un-trusted service. I lost 155 files by setting an account with them. I have emailed them several times but I am receiving no reply. I was simply too frustrated the day I lost my precious files. So I repeat do not …do not….do not set up and account and do not be fooled by a fraud website like hotlinkfile.
