Top 5 File sharing services that seem to be here for the long run, but you never knew about them.

Computers,Free Web Resources,Internet
In the post MegaUpload era, many file sharing services decided to stop providing users with sharing functionalities, due to the fear of being raided by the FBI. Taking on the opportunity to shine and earn fast, hundreds of new hosts popped up, promising great Pay-per-download rates, absolute anonymity and great ease of use. In reality, though, those were the same hosts as before, but now rebranded and incorporating new Terms of Use and privacy policies. In the months after the MegaUpload raid it has become clear that most of those new popping web sites are not set for the long run. In fact many of them were said to be \\\”unreliable\\\” by their users who tend to wake up one morning just to realise that all their files are gone with the file hosting service itself being unreachable.

Despite of the name that was given to File hosts due to the MegaUpload case, here are 5 alternatives , some of them new, some of them old and well established, that seem to be on for the long run and may ear your trust.

1.ZippyShare is definately here for the long run. Established in 2006, Zippy is running strong from their location in France. Because Zippy\\\’s servers are located in Europe, obviously users in EU would have a more stable and fast connection than users from US, for example. Being here for some time, their service is simple , easy to use, and does not require registration. The infrasructure of the service is hosted by OVH, which is a well-known name in the dedicated hosting industry. Maximum upload is 200mb per file.

2. FileDropper strikes with its really simple front page, where you are given exactly what you should – An uploadoding facility to get a file on their servers and share the link with whoever you might wish. FileDropper is around 7 years old now and is currently employing CludFlare\\\’s CND-like platform. The simple interface makes it a really nice and easy way to share files with the world, even without registration. The speed is good for users in EU. The maximum filesize is 5GB.

3. FilePup is a realtively new service. It has been created in december 2011, but has since been in testing stage. Growing 1 months strong now, seems to be growing fast attracting more and more attention. The service is hosted in Sofia, Bulgaria, which is said to be the 3rd most realiable place in terms of internet connectivity in the world. As the previous two, FilePup is well connected to the major IXPs in Europe, so users form EU should benefit from a stable connection. Free users get a 50GB of personal space and a maximum filesize of 1GB.

4. RapidGator attracted alot of visitors since the MegaUpload shutdown early in 2012. Well designed, the service had a few problems back then but is now stable. Again, it is well connected to all major exchange points in Europe, so users can benefit from a stable connection. The service has been critisized lately for having way too much Pop-up/Pop-under ads showing to free users, as well as heavyrestrictions on free users, where ZippyShare seems to rarely use pop-ups and seems to have no advertising at all. Rapidgator says there is no filesize and storage limit for their users.

5. LimeLinx is another stable, here for the long run host, with a simple interface and relatively fast upload & download speeds. LimeLinx has a feature that has been adored by it\\\’s early adopters, namely that you can play mp3 files directly without downloading them. There has been alot of critisism lately about the exessive use of ads on the download pages by this provider. The ISP of LimeLinx is Layer3Communications, which should mean the website is well accessible from Europe, as well as some parts of US too. limeLinx seems to be around 4 years old now.
