    All my previous sites were just basically articles and nothing else.

    Now I've created an amazon related niche site, and I need to upload images to it related to each product.

    At the moment there's only around 20 products but more will be added.

    Will hostgator not be happy with this ? I presume it's the images that will be taking up most of the usage (I'm on the baby croc plan - unlimited sites).

    Ony have 2 sites including this one hosted on it.

    Should I be using photobucket or something for images ? Don't even know if it's possible tbh.

    Thanks

    Check the allowed disk space for your account, that is what matters.

    I doubt that anything less than 100,000 images will put a dent in the space allowed.

    I think I have 20,000Mb

    Does this mean I only have to worry about this if it reaches near 20,000Mb ?

    For some reason hostgator is saying the site has got loads of page views but it hasn't :/

    Baby Plan
    UNLIMITED Domains
    UNLIMITED Disk Space
    UNLIMITED Bandwidth

    If you are on the Baby plan then you'll be able to host as many images as you want.
    Even on the lower Hatchling plan you shouldn't have any problems.


    Hatchling Plan
    Single Domain
    UNLIMITED Disk Space
    UNLIMITED Bandwidth

    Where does it tell you you only have 20,000MB space ?

    I just saw something on my cpanel saying ____ / 20,000mb but maybe that was about something else ?

    A bit off topic but since all my
    Images are from amazon, is it possible to get a direct link to the image ? The link that amazon uses that I have isn't just the image so it won't let me use that.

    There is a limit of 20GB of backup space.
    Once you exceed 20GB, your files will NOT be backed up, but your MySQL databases WILL.

    For your main question: You should be perfectly fine. HostGator is great when it comes to limits.
