Is it possible to maintain a file's original filename on Google Drive?

I'm trying to see if I can use Google Drive to host images for a website I'm building. Right now, the shareable-link generates a hash for each file. But I'll be hosting quite a lot of images and want at least the names of the sub-folders and files to be guessable.

How do I maintain the URL format as such:

At this time it's not possible to use Google Drive as file hosting that maintains a folder structure.

This was a supported feature but it was retired few years ago.
