    Hi all, again. Gentlemen, you know, one of the biggest problems for adult sites is storage. Everyone should be aware of this. You pay a monthly fee for storage and traffic.But sometimes your incomes are difficult to cover these costs. (Sometimes you give it on your own budget.) For example, I've used "Openload" to reduce storage costs for some time. But, some files are being deleted because they don't get traffic. However, videos always have to be permanent. (Erased automatically by openload when no traffic is received) But some videos may not always get traffic, this is normal.

    Anyways. Can we reduce storage costs? So how? For example, is there any other service that does not automatically delete videos? Or cloud storage services that are affordable and cheap? I'm curious about other ideas. I think this is an important issue. Because free installation services are deleting videos after a while. We have to find other alternatives. Or a place that gives cheap, affordable storage services.

    Blackhat members, I'm listening to you...

    free tiers: google drive (15gb), mega.nz (50gb). dropbox (2gb and up to 16gb if you abuse their referral program). if you are a black hat you can make multiple accounts.
    you can look up all these guys paid tiers yourself. many blog posts have been written comparing backup solutions & pricing.
    i use mega.nz & syncthing. syncthing is open source software that makes your own cloud backup system. assuming you have multiple devices at home (or off-site), it will sync all your data between them. so lets say you have some spare laptops or old computers/cellphones you are not using. you can turn them into your personal cloud backup.

    if it's just videos you have, maybe put them all on pornhub and mark it as private. nice little video backup loop hole.

    Thanks for the response. 50gb too little. (Of course more than one account can be created) Does Mega.nz allow you to embed videos? As an important rule, visitors need to download them as much as they want. I can't put it on Pornhub. I don't want to advertise them. The openload is very good but they have the rule of motion. In short, I need to bury the videos. Storage is a problem that really needs to be overcome.

    Do you embed Mega.nz videos on your website? Is there a download and traffic limit?

    you can't embed. there are some posts online regarding their bandwidth limit but they are vague. "varies upon system utilization". no mention if that is upload limit or download limit or what.
    what's the "low traffic threshold" for openload? you can make a bot to visit your link a few times so that automatic deletion trigger is never triggered.

    My only goal is video storage and burying. I need to embed videos. So they will be viewable on my website. Or a CDN connection. In short, a free service or an affordable service that can do this.

    I prefer to have my own cloud, I currently have a docking station hooked up with a Rasberry Pi that I use for my cloud.

    qfiels.io - they do not delete. Btw for good storage and embedded videos you will need premium account.

    What is the cloud service you are using? How much do you pay per month?

    Why is that? I'm asking for a free storage or an affordable cloud service. (I don't prefer personal websites. Must be a company)

    Get yourself a dedicated server with lots of space. For 50 bucks a month you can get 2 or maybe 3 TB storage, a decent processor, lots of memory and a Gigabit network connection. Find the right bargain and you got unlimited traffic.

    For Google, as I know every service is connected to one storage, so your G-Drive is 15GB
    Here are the packages and plans: https://one.google.com/about

    Yeah. Sounds rational. Do you have a suggestion?

    Issue here is just as you said storage and bandwidth both have costs.

    Services who offer storage/bandwidth for free offer them for free with a reason. Someone is paying for those servers/bandwidth or such services eventually do get something in return.

    Eventually if you pull a lot of bandwidth and/or use a lot of storage "free" term of usage will come to an end as you will be breaking TOS one way or another.

    There is no such thing as free lunch.

    Yeah! I think there's no choice other than a paid cloud service. Unfortunately.
