http://aws.amazon.com/s3/#pricing
prices look fantastic.

has anyone used this service?
All i see if good reviews on amazon services.

I think the only thing holding me back is the lack of information.
Is this just like any other regular hosting company? (ftp account, that allows me to upload and host my files)
I dont need databases or anything like that. I just need it to host a couple of my image files so that my server does not crash with requests.

Im using flickr to host my images.. but I read that I cannot use their services for my hosting purposes. :shock:
I was going to revert to myspace (photo gallery) hosting but I was unsure whether their image hosting stays static. Imageshack also offers a plan, but they contain bandwidth limitations. (so they are not really an option for me)

Yes, I used the amazon solution briefly. It's a bit full-on but totally scalable. I have since moved to http://slicehost.com for my small personal proggies.

Worth noting; amazon have had a few problems and been down a few times but i know a lot of companies are using it. Far superior to 99.9% of hosting solutions out there but you need to know your stuff. Not for the beginner.

ps> S3 is their backup/storage solution, not hosting (i think).

oh raelly? lol
well I just need to host like 3mb of picture files.
I dont think hostgator offers small enough hosting for my needs.

slicehost costs more than my VPS (=
so thats another no.

I think im sticking to the free services of imageshack and take a huge risk.
thanks anyways.
