I've always found that http://filefront.com was nice for individual files. However, I haven't tried this out. Thanks for the link

I can't say for sure, but Filefront does not allow hotlinking. You can upload files, but you can't use them in your tracks.

A mod can take up 20MB, songs about 5MB/peace. So if you create many tracks, it won't be enough.
And I don't know about the speed at google pages and your free webspace, but Skydrive is pretty fast.

Microsoft s*cks, thats why.
Btw, google pages can have 0.5 gig space (5sites)
and is fast enough. Why should google pages be slow? it is the biggest online website...
And That free site is from Serverffs, you know they are fast ^^
And there are enough free direct link file hosters, why use a backup tool to upload tm files?

I am going to comment with some decent arguments instead of childish ones like "Google sucks":
- 5000MB > 500MB
- Speed for googlepages and Skydrive is the same
- Everyone has Windows Live account, but not everyone uses Gmail
- Skydrive interfact is simpel and easy to use

Hey, but you use whatever you want. I only posted this because someone I know started renting a webserver because he couldn't find free hosts with decent speed and without trafic or filesize limits.

Oh yeah, and how can you add more sites? Because I only get 100MB webspace when I log in to google pages.

Google also limits your bandwidth really badly. I tried and after about a hour or two of online gaming I used up all of my daily bandwidth limit.
therefore Google I'd say, Is not good enough for hosting game files.

(Edit:) P.S.- Dont forget also it depends on how busy each TM server is...

They do though.. although they wont say how much it is limited, here's a link to their help centre pages with it in their words not mine.

Not only do they limit the bandwith:
"You can upload any single file up to 10 MB. Any file that is larger in size will cause a failed upload. "

Maximum filesize is 10MB, so you can forget about uploading mods and there is also a bandwith limit, so forget about adding music to all your tracks.
In other words, google pages can not be used for trackmania files.

Look, at the moment I have 15 tracks with custom content ( animated signs, music, etc... ). These tracks are available on only one server.
This content generates 1-1.5GB every day. I know that because the website only generates 0.5-1GB every day and the total trafic is about 2.5GB/day.

The problem is that the majority of the TM gamers doesn't expand their TM cache. That would reduce the traffic a lot. I've cleaned my cache 2 weeks ago and now it's at 2GB. I don't remember what the default cache-size is, but I am pretty sure it's less then 1GB.
