    Im looking for a host where I can store large quantities of images. The hosting provider needs to run off a lamp server, and have a good bandwidth allowance.

    Basically I have websites where I host content, that are extremely quick, but the company does not offer unlimited bandwidth. I want to keep the same host account, but will host all my images off site. Right now I use Imgur, but I rather have something that I control.

    not many will give unlimited as that ads up pretty quick. Also how much storage space would you need for the images.

    Not much at the beginning, but based on how much would be generated I would say up to 300GB by a year. The bandwidth would likley be at least 100* the images, so say 30,000GB bandwidth

    I should also mention, I dont need unlimited, but I need something that can scale, and is still cheaper. IE, I can add bandwidth/storage as necessary at not a huge increase in cost.

    Hi Youtalkmedia,

    I assume that you need 30,000GB bandwidth for starters. We can offer you that for an affordable price. You see, we offer 100Mbps guaranteed with unmetered bandwidth. At full capacity, that equals to around 32TB/month.

    To have this with us, you'll either have to look into a VPS or dedicated server, but you probably already knew that.

    If money is not so a problem and you wants quality, try amazon WS or Google Cloud.
