Couple of days back I was looking for ways to share some large files with some of my colleagues. While looking for some decent file sharing websites and more importantly reliable file sharing websites, I stumbled upon some really good options. After all how many files can you share via mails not to mention the fact that there is an upload limit !! I dont blame them.
Quite a few of you would be aware of the megaupload fiasco and how Kim Dotcom (the founder) has to close its services on charges of illegal file sharing activities which resulted in a huge loss to its users. You can find more on it here. So it is all the more important to make sure you do some digging around before you entrust all those important document and files. Fortunately for you I did all the dirty work.
And the winner is…
SpeedyShare Since 2005 and going strong.
- It comes with a drag and drop functionality so all you have to do is drag your files and the uploads starts.
- You can then share a link to the file via mail or any other way you deem fit.
- Resume uploads in case of internet interruption so you dont have to start all over again. Trust me this is a life saver.
- No limit on file size or uploading limits.
- No captchas, no waiting and no download limits.
- Supports remote downloading at full speed from other major file hosts (wupload, rapidshare, filefactory, hotfile, depositfiles) without having to have premium accounts. I’ve tested all and they really work! No need to maintain multiple accounts as this supports all in a single and neat interface.
- Very low rates for premium users. $9,95 for 30 days!. You can even try premium features after free registration for trial, and then upgrade to premium! You will not find an option to upgrade until you sign up for a free trial account. Sweet.
- Premium users able to search index fully.
- No ads !! I am sure you guys have encountered this one. You visit a link to download something and get spammed by adult ads and all sorts of pop ups. Sometimes dont know where to click to start the download accidentally clicking on an ad. This creates bad impression on your colleagues. Be professional and choose right.
- Does not allow sharing of illegal files. That is a real relief which sets it apart from all those shady service providers who are in the game to make a quick buck and dont give a damn about there users and their privacy. This makes the site clean and provides peace of mind to users like me.
I created a trial account to test the service and both upload and download speeds were awesome. I will keep it simple and short and recommend you to try their services now. Click here to pay them a visit now.
