As more and more users start using a particular widget more bandwidth is consumed, and this results in bandwidth being exceeded, and downloads being turned off for some time by the webhost. So it is better to host these files on your own servers.
There are a few good options for these:
1. > Google Pages
2. > Ripway.com
This is what I personally feel like best, and you can manage the bandwidth as it gives you a daily usage details of bandwidth being used. As of now the total space provided for free users is 30 MB, and Bandwidth limit is 150 MB. The best part, you can upgrade to a premium plan if you need to do so.
3. > Other Free Hosts
This is the other option left, Signup for any free webhost and use the space to host your files, and use the direct links for the widgets. You can also use your own host for storing files. While signing up for any freehost, check whether the host provides Hot linking or direct linking.
So you can link to files on your own servers to reduce/nullify the downtime effect, and would serve you better. I’ll Show how to do this with Blogger Blogs in my next Post. Stay Tuned…
