The industry standard for online video hosting

Host, manage, and share your videos in ad-free HD, all from the Vimeo website.

Vimeo is the creative standard for hosting video. There's no alternative, and there doesn't need to be. If I saw a DP reel hosted on YouTube, I wouldn't hire the person.

How do I host a video online?

If you’re looking to host a video online, you’ve come to the right video hosting site. You can host up to 7TB of videos on Vimeo — which, for what it’s worth, is a lot of videos. Simply navigate your browser to the Vimeo upload page to drag and drop virtually any video file from your computer.
