    I have seen Gurus host their good for nothing Big Ass files in s3.Amazonaws

    I recently created Videos for one of my websites and they consume a lot of my hosting bandwith.I am planning to host the videos in a thirdparty site like s3.amazonaws or some alternatives.

    Does anybody here using amazonaws?How much will it cost to have a account there?

    Is there any free file hosting site that also looks professional?I am currently using Sendspace.com.But looking for something better....

    Pls guide me...

    Opening an account is free.

    You only pay for the bandwidth and data storage you use and within reason there is no pre defined upper limit. It is very low cost.

    One month my bill was $0.04

    An advantage is that they have loads of capacity so if your video goes viral it will still show whereas on your site it could grind to a halt.

    I have seen some calculations that show the cost are similar to standard hosting on a unit basis. The advantage is that for a standard hosting account you pay $x per month whether you use the storage / bandwidth allocation or not. If you go over the limit the site stops or you need to upgrade on a permanent basis to the next level - inflating your monthly costs permanently.

    Think of amazon S3 as over spill where you pay for what you use.
