- Not to be confused with Kephost.com.
Kephost.hu was a Hungarian one-click image sharing site. People could easily upload one or more pictures from their computers, and insert the link into forums, chat etc. They could choose whether their images should be public: these ones could be browsed by visitors. Registered users could also create albums of their pictures.
The site started in 2010 (or in late 2009), and as of February 2014, it hosted more than 550,000 pictures, most of them (485,000) public. (The site allowed to browse all the uploaded public pictures.) Then they confidently wrote "we still have lots of space". However, a month later, all of a sudden, the service ceased operation. It's even more surprising because it seems that the quite fine-looking web6 company was behind the site. Anyway, they stepped off with half a million pictures.
No complete archive of the site was made, and unfortunately even the Wayback Machine didn't save the pictures (except a very few ones), so we can say that everything that matters is lost.
