    More imaginative Irish web hosting

    Photo/file storage outside website storage:

    Easy storage of say Word documents and photos that you don't want online:
    After all, it's about digital storage space.
    On some file managers that's possible, before getting into the website root level storage
    eg theres a "web" and "logs" folders at that top level, a level where one can also simply dump any files for storage (without having them accessible online, whatever about search engine blocking etc).
    Alternatively, there might be a completely separate file storage section for such items
    - which might be made available for websites, with a transfer option to the website file manager section.

    Sure, there are specialized online file storage systems, backup sites etc, but since the storage space is there, why not make it available imaginatively in such ways,
    and as a handy backup for whatever computer/usb stick storage that people might have?

    What do you mean?

    If you mean the ability to upload files to a directory which isn't in your web directory, then it's possible with most hosting systems

    In blacknight https and http divisions, but no file manager storage outside the website root as far as I can see
    Seems the case with plesk and directadmin file managers, for example
