Often I have logfiles to questions or answers on StackExchange-pages but the logs are to large to post them on the side. So I am looking for a solution to upload the log at an other place and link to it.

Here is an example logfile that is hard to read:

  • Do you look for a hosted or a self-hosted solution? – unor Oct 3 '14 at 20:31

    @unor for a hosted solution where you can be sure that is stays there for some time (ideal of cause would be for ever). – kimliv Oct 3 '14 at 21:41

You are looking for a pastebin web application.

Most of them offer the same features: paste some content, select syntax highlighting (if any), select if it should be private/public, and when it should be deleted automatically (if at all).

A popular service is pastebin.com, which, according to Wikipedia, exists since 2002. While there naturally can be no guarantuee that a non-self-hosted service stays in business (or suddenly deletes all content, etc.), about 12 years of operation is quite a time.

Another service is GitHub Gist. While not so old as pastebin.com, it’s provided by GitHub which some may trust because of its prominence.

(And if you should inted to self-host in the future, have a look at this question: Self-hosted alternative to Pastebin)
