    Default Can I upload other people scripts to my hosting

    Hello,

    If you have permission to use the files, you probably also have permission to copy the files onto your server for your personal use. Is that the question? Keep credit notices and don't redistribute, and you should be fine. Of course also make sure you have the permission in the first place. For something like google adsense, you may wish to keep it on the google server so it stays updated and they don't accuse you of changing which ads are shown. For the rest, if they are APIs then it is also a good idea to leave it on the original server for technical reasons-- for updates and for security. An API usually must be used on the server the information is coming from, due to cross-domain scripting restrictions.
