I'm using a .cur file as an image cursor. I uploaded it to the only image host that I could find that accepts .cur files, but lately it doesn't properly load the cursor anymore.

My webhost now doesn't accept .cur files. I converted it to .png but those won't show in IE

Basically I'm looking for a way to host/upload a .cur file.

    If you can upload to the server but not see it in the browser, maybe it's because your host does not associate the file extension with the correct mime type. A possible solution is adding one of this mime types: image/x-win-bitmap or application/x-win-bitmap to the .cur extension trough .htaccess – Osvaldo Sep 4 '11 at 9:40

Have you asked your webhost to accept them? It could just be that by default their uploaders will not accept .cur (it isn't a file extension I would think to allow) but if you asked nicely they would place it on the server for you.

The only other way I could think to do it is if you are able to rename files after upload to your host, then upload it as a .png and rename it to .cur when you are uploaded. It is a nasty work around but it might work.

Uploading it to a third party is going to introduce other issues.
