I have been searching this for hours and every services I found have limitations or cost that do not work for me.
My quest is simple. I have hundreds of thousands of image files (time lapse jpg images < 5 MB) which are organised in folders and subfolders.
I originally hosted them with HostGator. Unfortunately, they see them as storage only because no file was displayed on a web page for 2 months. So HG is kicking me out.
I need to quickly find an alternative service which works like a web server so I can organise the files exactly the same way, upload them via FTP or PHP script, and rsync from HG to move all the first (initially) AND be able to display the image file in a normal image tag in a web page.
My local ISP in RSA is too expensive and also limit the hosting space to very little. You know the story for HostGator. SmugMug has unlimited storage but only allows upload via their web pages or LightRoom. Would cloud storage be a good option?
Can someone recommend a good and affordable service for this?
