GTF Képhost was another Hungarian image sharing service. People could upload files from their computers, and insert the links of the pictures into forums, chat, websites etc. However, it was used predominantly to store images linked from torrent-hosting websites.

The service was launched in 2012 and closed in 2020.

Staff had admittedly deleted some images at least twice. As a result, as of March 2017, only images uploaded since 2015 were available for browsing, although staff said images uploaded by registered users had not been deleted.

Shutdown

In 2020, multiple temporary outages occured. Between July 13 and September 4 the website was unavailable, and between September 11 and 19 uploading was disabled. (In this year the number of uploaded images significantly increased. This might be a possible reason for the outages, and even for the shutdown.)

As of 2020-12-05, gtfkephost.hu resolved to a page with the following text, then immediately redirected to kephost.net:

Original Hungarian English translation
Az oldalt a tárhely szolgáltató lekapcsolta... Az eddig feltöltött képek kiszolgálása megmarad, új képek nem jöhetnek fel! The website has been shutdown by the hosting provider. Images already uploaded will continue to be served, new images can't be uploaded.

Contrary to the message, the old images weren't served, but any request to gtfkephost.hu resulted in the above message and redirect.

(kephost.net seems to be another image hosting service, started in 2020.)

As of 2021-01-01, 403 and 404 errors are returned to any URLs.

Administrator activity

They made some announcements.[1]

Financial status

No traceable information about the entity behind the site, so no financial status information available. (The domain owner is a natural person.) There was one ad banner at the bottom, a list of partners on a page, and a donate button in the header.

Content

A quick sampling shows that there is very little original content, most of the pictures are DVD covers, movie frames and XXX movie frames, probably background storage for torrent websites.

According to the website's statistics,[2] as of 2017-03-14, 348,000 pictures were hosted, most of them public, and about half of them uploaded by registered users. Total space used: 57 GB. (Uploads had a file size limit of 205.07 KB (sic!).[3]

There were like 400 registered users and the same number of galleries at that time.

Site structure

One could browse the list of uploaded public pictures (http://gtfkephost.hu/gallery.php, NSFW alert!), the ~7,400 pages showed ~148,000 pictures as of 2017-03-14, although stats page said they had ~322,000 public pictures. Moreover, although the service started in 2012, the image browser showed only images uploaded since 2015.

Images had a random alphanumerical identifier.

Image pages: e.g. http://gtfkephost.hu/viewer.php?file=y24b03hg7w.png

Actual image URLs: e.g. http://gtfkephost.hu/files/2017/06/06/y24b03hg7w.png Note: the 06/06 part in this URL has nothing to do with the upload date. This is, for example, a February 2017 upload.

Content deletion

According to a 2017-03-07 announcement,[1] staff deleted images uploaded in 2013–2014 by unregistered users.

"We won't explain the reason for this"

Back in June 2014, they also deleted older pictures.

Although staff statd that images of registered users had not been deleted, the older pictures (currently: uploaded before 2015) didn't show up in the image browser.

Archiving

As the Wayback Machine didn't have a copy of most of the pictures, user:bzc6p started saving already uploaded images in December 2014, and was saving newly uploaded ones regularly, until October 2020.

Archives

Public images uploaded from June 2013 until December 2015 are available in the Wayback Machine. Public images uploaded between January 2016 and October 2020, however, are accessible only via the RSZI web archive.

The following table contains links to the bulk archive files (for advanced users and data hoarders).
