Comparing Free File Hosting Company
Posted by absnet on 7 March 2009
You have file to shared to others?. If so, here’s some free hosting which you can choose, completed with it’s description and advantages:
|I put rapidshare in my #1 list, because it’s rank in 15 when I write this post. It shows you that rapidshare services is very famous. You can upload your file in 100 MB max each and uploading as much as you can. One you upload your file, they give you download links for your file, which is valid for 90 days, except you transfer your file to collector account.Non-paying users are required to wait 30 to 134 seconds, depending on the filesize, before the download starts and their download-speed is limited from 25 KB/s up to 250 KB/s (depending on the server-load). In October 2008, Rapidshare extended the waiting time to 15 minutes between each download.
You got point everytime free user download your file, which is only about 1/1000 cents (if converted to dollars). Not much if you really want to seek the money.
Registration and payment allow benefits such as unlimited download speed, download of several files simultaneously, queue skipping, the facility to interrupt and re-start downloads, uploading and downloading bigger files up to 2 GBs, allowing Free Users to download their files with Premium privileges (“TrafficShare”) and to store up to 500 GB of data that can not expire.
Premium accounts last for a certain number of days, with a day marked at midnight Central European Time. Thus a 30-day account opened at 11:59pm CET would have 29 days to run after one minute. Every premium account is limited to a maximum of 80 GB download traffic per month, divided equally over every day of the month. If there are 30 days in a month, then the user will receive 2.67 GB per day. The user is allowed to “save” traffic up to a maximum of 12 GB and can then spend the saved traffic all at once.
The Rapidshare service is subject to frequent alterations, such as the size of the traffic allowances and the policies for their application. Users are notified of changes via the ‘News’ page on the Rapidshare website.
Your file won’t be deleted or altered in any ways, except there’s a valid complaint if your file consisting subject with copyrighted materials.
This services is free. You can upload any file in any size, and people can download without any restriction like any other file hosting services. There’s no point at all.
|Just like rapidshare, ziddu give you unlimited file space. There’s no download ticket, but only something such as captcha to prevent automatic downloading. You got point about 1/1000 cents everytime free user download. Your file won’t be deleted (at least till now)..|
|Easy-share, similar with other services, give you some ePoint to every downloader. It’s value almost the same with the other services, but the don’t limit file size to be downloaded. You got at least 0.1 ePoint on every download. 1 ePoint = 1/1000 dollars.
The Objection on easy-share is : at the second time, your download took very long waiting time ticket (500 second) which is very annoying for free downloader. I only recommending download from this site 1 file a day. So, if you want to sacrifice your visitor, use easy-share. I prefer Ziddu than easy-share, but ziddu upload is rather difficult. Easy-share offering ftp download.
|Send, Receive and Track Multiple FilesYouSendIt Free lite edition give you only 100 times download on each file. This service not give you point.|
|The domain MegaUpload.com attracted at least 10 million visitors annually by 2008 according to a Compete.com study.The basic service is available for free and allows users to upload files of up to 1024 MB. Free users cannot download files larger than 1 GB, however. Free registered users are offered 50 GB of total file storage. Premium users are offered 1 TB total file storage. After a successful file upload, the user is given a unique URL which allows others to download the file.
Any file uploaded anonymously will expire if there are no downloads for at least 21 days. For free registered accounts, the expiration period is at least 90 days of which can be manually reset. Premium accounts have no expiration period as long as the user remains a premium member.
Users must fill a text-based CAPTCHA when downloading a file. Non-registered users await 45 seconds in the download queue and a certain amount of time between transfers after a certain amount of megabytes has been downloaded. Paying users get a premium account with a wider range of privileges.
Note that even paying members do not get a direct hotlink for non-paying members to download. Non-members trying to download your uploaded file are forced to MegaUpload’s site and have to wait 45 seconds to initiate a download.
MegaUpload also runs MegaVideo, a video site for streaming flash videos, similar to YouTube.
|This service just become favorite. You can upload as many files as you want. The best thing is, you can link your file in a website. ImageShack’s mission is to provide an easy-to-use image hosting service for everyone. So, enjoy this services|

|File Den was established in April 2006, with the idea of producing a website that at that time did not exist – a free file host that allowed most any file extension to be uploaded and shared whilst allowing direct linking. Many other websites around at the time either only offered very limited file extensions (e.g. Just images) with direct linking, or didn’t offer direct linking at all. This made it very difficult for people who didn’t have the resources to store their own files to be displayed on their profiles, personal websites, blogs or forums. People had to either purchase a web hosting account elsewhere with hundreds of features they’d never need; many of which have cumbersome control panels with hard to use user interfaces; or put up with not being able to direct link their files.Upon the launch of File Den, the website begun to grow at an outstanding rate as people realised that there was an alternative to the other file hosts around – that they could finally direct link to their files and easily share them with their friends, families, colleagues and communities.
File Den today
File Den’s servers are located in the Gnax datacentre, Atlanta. We currently run on a network of more than 20 servers – expanding monthly in order to continue offering the best service we possibly can.

|There’s not only rapidshare providing file hosting today. With variety of services, you can choose one suitable for you. But my recommendation is:
Just want to share
Share and get a small amount of money
|PS : I don’t recommend you 4shared, because they limit your space only 5 MB (although you can have many account) and you should login every 30 days to keep your account active.|
