Online file storage sites like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft’s SkyDrive are beginning to change how average site owners manage their content. Instead of having all of their content on their own servers, website owners are beginning to see the value in having some of their content, especially images and video, housed remotely on special storage sites or CDNs (Content Delivery Networks). This makes for:
Lighter sites that load faster, due to much of the content being hosted in a separate location
Cheaper sites, due to the decreased space and bandwidth requirements.
