Total Disk Space: 253179 MB Allowed Transfer: 2100.00 GB
Disk Usage: 1499 MB Transfer Used: 5.11 GB (0.24%)

This is my current hostage usage for my Servage.net account (I got it with a coupon for puppy giving us and puppy 2 months free hosting!). We would be happy to mirror any ISO or Pups. Something tells me Im not going to have bandwidth/space problems for a while Wink

Let us know how we go about this.

How many of these are still up? It looks like

puppyfiles.us

is down, and my connections to puptrix and dotpups.de has been sporadic over the past couple of days.

Time for a pledge drive?

as far as I tested, dotpups.de was always available, at least in germany.

Maybe there were some problems with the atlantic-cablenodes.
It will be replaced by a different solution however in february.

Puptrix is down at moment, but usually it does not take long, until it works again.
Puptrix might be a bit problematic simply because it hosts mainly very large files (Isos). This might cause some overloads from time to time.

That must be it. I was getting 503 errors last night, as I was looking for Megapup003, and Ruby. Might have been too much traffic, either enroute, or at the server.

Good to know.

It might do well to update threads like this, the wiki, etc. with that sort of info, so that Puppy doesn't look, for lack of a better word, unprofessional.

Size does not matter, we have 275 Gigabyte

You mean hosting space? This must be something new and great news. Very Happy

Which domain/s is/are using this?

For Dotpups / Pupgets:
http://dotpups.de/dotpups
alternative URL:
http://puppyfiles.org/dotpupsde/dotpups

For Isos:
http://puppyisos.org

FTP Server: ftp.servage.net
Username: puppyuploads
Password: get it from me via Personal Message!

That is a temporary folder for fresh uploads.
Please DO create subfolders there.
Please add a xxx.htm with info where to find more info about your package (usually only a link to the forum-announcement).

Send me a personal message when you uploaded, so that I can move your package to the final location.
Tell me in your message, to which subfolder I shall upload.

Mark

I know this thread is a bit old, but I don't think anyone mentioned one of the obvious solutions for distributing Puppy ISOs, packages, podcasts, etc.: CoralCache (http://www.coralcdn.org/)

This free service caches frequently used content and make it available from distributed servers around the globe (260 of them, as I write this...)

Using it requires only appending ".nyud.net:8080" to the hostname portion of an ordinary URL (like, say, puppyos.com/download/whatever.iso). At the first request, the Coral network will check to see if the file is in the cache. If not, it grabs the file from your server, and so long as it's accessed frequently enough to stay in the cache, it will be available *transparently* from distribution sites around the world.

It offers many of the benefits of BitTorrent, but works as a regular HTTP download URL, so there's no special client or management as there is with BT.

Coral has been in operation for a years now, so it appears that it will work in the future, unlike many of the online file hosting services, and some Coral users distribute over 1TB/month.

Given that Puppy is so much smaller than many distros, CoralCache might make a lot of sense for us...

Just found this in the Coral FAQ - Looks like Coral is still a great choice for packages, podcasts and the like, but only ISOs under 50 MB:

Quote:
Coral is not saving me bandwidth for my large file!

Because of bandwidth overuse, we temporarily capped off Coral to disallow transfers of files greater than 50 MB. Our current deployment has servers with 4 GB performing whole-file caching (and are running at cache capacity). If clients are pulling files on the orders of 100s of MB, the benefit of the system for hundreds of other websites is greatly reduced, as data would otherwise be quickly evicted from caches.

We're going to look at better techniques to do striped large-file caching to be able to handle larger files, but until we implement such functionality, large file transfers were otherwise killing our file caches.

Thus, instead of just returned some type of error message (like 403: Forbidden), we are transparently redirecting clients back to the origin site, where they at least have a possibility of downloading the file, and the server is not in worse shape than pre-Coral.

As I've been hosting some Puppy files on http://www.pkagfiles.net/ thought I'd make it official in this thread.

Make your directory & leave a description htm file pointing to forum thread of announcement, PM me.

ISO's & sfs files.

Just found this site:
http://www.tuxfamily.org/

They host "free-libre" files for "free-gratis". Maybe one of you Puplet creators might want to ask them if they'll host your ISO.

I looked around their website, FAQ, wiki & forums but couldn't find any mention of file size limits.

Wikipedia compare one-click file hosters here. I'm thinking of uploaded as many puplets as possible to one, but would like a service where files don't expire.

those services where you don't pay usually dont survive very long.
This is why I have set up puppyisos.org (see messages further up).
It currently can be payed for a second year by the donations I already received.
