Good site for hosting EPG

After some trial and error I have my .xml configured like I want it.  The next step seems to be finding a site.  I was using dropbox to host my file for testing puproses but after it go over a certain size, it stopped loading EPG data into my player.  I assume that is because it was no longer able to generate a preview of the file due to size.  I've tested on Amazon AWS and it hosts the file without problems but that isn't really a free option and the trial will eventually expire.

Is there a site that anyone could recommend?  I am trying to create a publicly available URL for me and my immediate family (4-5 users), so I don't need a ton of bandwidth.  Any suggestions appreciated.

I will look into that. The computer with WebGrab is on 24/7, so that would not be an issue. Would it matter that my IP is not static?

I used to use dropbox with no problems, now I host it myself since my webgrab install is on a 24/7 NAS.

To create a direct download link for dropbox rename the domain 'https://www.dropbox.com' to 'https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com'.

Don't use the preview link like 'https://www.dropbox.com/home/?preview=guide.xml'.  Instead 'Share' the link and click 'Create a Link'.

Therefore:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/a1b2c3d4ef5gh6/example.docx?dl=1

becomes

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/a1b2c3d4ef5gh6/example.docx

PS- http://freedns.afraid.org/dynamic/ is great for free DDNS

Thanks...I was having fits trying to get Apache to work. It didn’t want to play nice with my Plex server already running on the computer.
