Question .Blend web or ftp hosting... where?

Altaken's site isn't taking more registration. Where could I host a blend that is almost 3 MB so that it can be downloaded fairly fast?

It is for a "Christmast Present" for the community that a group of blenderheads has been working for some time. We where hoping to release it on Chirstmast Eve.. but my usual free web-host hast a policy for purposely slowing down big files downloads for non-paying customers like myself.

Actually I need to host the .blend and the .html cotaining the tutorial about how to use the .blend. But the .html I can host them without much problem (kind of slow, but it works ).

Any idea how many people (ballpark) are going to access this? I have about 25GB of transfer a month with my account. I'd be happy to host for you as long as it's not, like 10,000 people hitting it. Email me -at- harkyman (dot) com.

I'm going out of town for a few hours today. I should be back around 3:30 or 4:00 Eastern time.

Alternatively, if you have a link, even to a slower host, post it here and I'll grab it and put it up as soon as I get home.

Try at Elysiun. There some people have pro hosting. Waiting for your Christmast present.

Cool !!

Harkiman, I'll e-mail it to you as soon as I do some last minute touchups, so it all stays on the blender family, but if it proves to a heavy load on your bandwidth we'll add a ezshare mirror.


How many downloads? Hard to estimate without blowing up the surprize.. but I'll say maybe 10 or 20 downloads per day. It isn't something THAT fancy.

I sent you an e-mail with my host. Its bandwith is quite unlimited.

i did not receive your e-mail.. could you please re send it to jjulio.pena (at) verizon.net.do

(of course the " (at) " has to be changed to the propper symbol.. those spamming companies has turned me into an e-mail paranoid).

Yeap. On the original file all the hair was parametrical and the file was about 3 MB, but I turned it into simple mesh objects and it downsized nicely to 1.75 MB
