    Question External host

    I have a free web hosting plan with very limited storage space, my site is mainly image hosting/viewing. I am trying to find a way to host my images on an external site like imageshack.com, i also need to be able to store the urls of these external images in a mySQL database, i can't figure it out!
    Any help is greatly appreciated

    To be honest I would really consider moving hosting provider. There are that many hosts that provide more than ample space for a nominal fee these days that it makes no sense not to tbh
    Without doing so this is going to be a major pain in the ***

    Wow that's a lot of pictures! If it was like 1GB and about 5GB bandwidth I could give you a free account, but that would stretch my reseller account too much sorry man

    I have a few free accounts with 000webhost and they allow you 1500 MB, unlimited is only $4.84. Looks like CodingForums doesn't allow a link to their site, so you will have to Google them
