WP Intense Q & ACategory: External ImagesExternal Storage – best storage option?
Gary asked 4 weeks ago

I have a website using the Houzez theme - the problem is the amount of images taking up almpst 72G of space on the server!

I am of course interested in the External Images plugin but not sure how or where to host the many images - where or which is the best option for storage??

If your images are coming from a central property product feed, you can just serve the images up from that location – i.e. no need to import images anywhere if you do this.

Otherwise, you can move the images over to S3 or Digital Ocean spaces to get cheaper storage and eliminate this overhead from your server.
