Now anyone that can add an image to WordPress can move to the cloud and manage media files without client software, third-party plugins, or the need to become a cloud architect. It’s just awesome.” – David Blackmon

- Infinite Uploads Video Upload & Embed a video via Infinite Uploads Video Cloud.
Images, videos, and audio files are the biggest performance drain on a website. Hosting your media files alongside your site code both slows performance and quickly creates overages for your more expensive web hosting storage. Moving your Media Library to performance-optimized cloud storage and serving your files from a Content Delivery Network will not only save space and lower cost, it improves performance.
Will this let me upload large files like videos to WordPress?
Our video hosting feature let’s you upload directly to the cloud from the WordPress dashboard, bypassing all host limits. For other media types, you can use our free plugin Big File Uploads to bypass server limitations.
Is the Infinite Uploads plugin free?
Yes the Infinite Uploads plugin is free but it does require an Infinite Uploads account to be useful in storing and serving your files from the cloud. It can be used on an unlimited number of sites without per-site or per file licensing costs like competitors.
Will the Infinite Uploads plugin work without connecting to Cloud Storage?
Yes. Use the Infinite Uploads storage scanner to analyze the files in your media library. See what files are causing overages with a graphic breakdown of the files size and type and learn what content is taking up your hosting storage. You will have to connect to our cloud to use the cloud storage and CDN features.
How many websites can I connect to one cloud account?
Connect an unlimited number of sites to your Infinite Uploads account at no cost. Pay only for your cloud storage usage.
How many files can I upload each month?
Upload as many files as you like and only ever pay for the cost of your storage and bandwidth. No file overages or per-site charges.
What servers is Infinite Uploads using?
Infinite Uploads is a hybrid custom stack built and hosted with multiple enterprise-grade cloud services for the ultimate in security, speed, power, and performance. All without the cost of a sysadmin or the complexity of configuring servers, policies, permissions, keys, etc…pure magic.
Why can’t I just use AWS S3, Google Cloud Storage, Azure, etc?
There are plugins for that, but they all have expensive per-site or per file annual license fees. And then you have to figure out how to signup for and configure complicated cloud providers and CDNs.
Finally, while the per/GB prices of cloud storage may seem cheap, there are all the hidden costs you don’t realize like class A/B/C/D API transaction costs, and bandwidth x3 (to cloud > to cdn > to user). Bandwidth costs alone can often total 8x more than your storage bill!
Infinite Uploads makes the power of the cloud simple and affordable for non-cloud architects like you.
