Our data is stored on Hetzner in Germany. You must conform to Germany's laws and Hetzner's policies in order to use this service. Heavily encrypted backups are stored in Exoscale SOS in Switzerland to improve resiliency against data loss.
Once you have an account, you will be given information on how to setup your device to use the service as the file hosting platform. In case you're wondering, we do support Windows through ShareX and Linux/MacOS through owo.sh. Most other Pomf-compatible clients (multipart/formdata) for file uploads or Polr-compatible clients for link shortening are supported.
Currently we aren't accepting new users through a signup form, as we're still in beta and are constantly making improvements and updates to our infrastructure. We hope to be accepting users through a signup form in the future. If you want to try your luck at convincing Dean or Aurieh to give you an account over email, be our guest.
Currently, the maximum filesize that the server will accept is 100MB. This limit applies per request, and up to three files can be uploaded in one request. This may be changed in the future, but currently we feel that this gives users enough room to upload what they want and not cause us to have to pay an overly large bill for storage and bandwidth.
Previously, we only allowed extensions/mime-types that were in a whitelist. Now we allow all filetypes and mime-types. The Content-Type of the served content will be set to the Content-Type of the multipart field's Content-Type, but defaults to application/octet-stream if not supplied. All content is scanned immediately after upload, and every 48 hours.
Our service serves content from many "vanity" URLs, all over HTTPS. File hosting shares the same domains as the link shortener. We don't have a control panel, yet, but it is planned.
This list is also available as a human-and-machine-readable list at https://whats-th.is/public-cdn-domains.txt. The changelog for this list can be found at https://whats-th.is/public-cdn-domains.changelog.txt.
You can find the service at:
Additionally, we have a few wildcarded subdomains:
Some of these domains may be broken when you go to use them (they are donated, after all). A website called owostat.us has been created by the community to mirror the list on this website and check whether or not the domain is working at the moment.
Wildcards can have anything thrown in front of them (as long as it doesn't
contain an extra period!). For example, I can use
owo.is-pretty.cool to access files on the file CDN, but I can't
an extra period.
Visiting any of these links in your browser without a path will redirect you back to the homepage.
