As a distributor of a product, you want to deliver to as wide an audience as possible, and as a downloader, you want to get the product as easily as possible.

So why do people use inconvenient file host services such as RapidShare or MegaUpload?
First of all, the reason they are inconvenient is because they: limit how much a user can download, require tedious captcha inputs, demand the user to wait as they shove ads in the user's face, and rams the extortion subscription down the user's throat.

Now why would people put up with it? It is ignorance. Ignorance of the vast numbers of much better alternatives that are overshadowed by the much more forum-saturated RapidShare and MegaUpload links.

So this thread's purpose is to help by informing both the uploaders and the downloaders of the excellent file hosting alternatives which do not have the annoyance of said web tyrants.

One-Click File Hosts:

http://www.mediafire.com (200MB)
http://www.filedropper.com (5GB)
http://www.speedyshare.com (200MB-2GB)
http://www.snapdrive.net (500MB)
http://www.sendspace.com (300MB)
http://drop.io (100MB)

File Hosts with Manager:

https://www.opendrive.com
http://www.fileden.com
http://www.4shared.com

You may find more file hosts at
http://www.filehostingreview.com/File_Hosting

Now that you know of several great file hosting sites, next time as a releaser, upload your files there, or as a downloader, request that the file be uploaded where you won't have to waste minutes or even hours of your life waiting for the site to unlock your IP address (or without having to pull your router's plug).
Thank you  :)    

File Auto-Downloader: http://mipony.net
For those who have to use those frustrating sites for downloads, this manager program will wait the timer and notify you when download is ready and download automatically if no captcha input is needed.

Yea I can't stand rapidshare and (IMO) people that use it fail... even if you have a pro account, that doesn't mean everyone else does (idk who would even).


Mediafire = best (imo). No wait times, free uploads, whats more to ask :)

Actually, most people use RS and MU because they get rewards points every time someone downloads a file.  People make their livings uploading stuff to these sites.

Good point DemonStalker, though in the context of the community here, we shouldn't encourage people to be greedy and make inconveniences for others. It is doubtful that people can "make a living" by posting ads-full links, other than for some extra cash.

I'm not saying people distributing their own works should not benefit financially from it, it's just that the creators' motivation should be derived more from the appreciations by others, rather than financial gain. And to make others appreciate one's works even more is by allowing them to obtain it hassle-free.

I like megaupload..don't see what's the big deal..one file at a time but other than that I download gigabytes a day with no limit... and only a 1minute wait to DL... and I can always DL 1MB/s + which I can't always on other hosts

its funny how people will spend months developing a product, and and afford cheap web hosting and a domain, so they have to resort to rapidshare and the servers are always too full for the download

That's right! I hate people who uploaded their files to Rapidshare, Megaupload or Hotfile. All waste of time just to download some files.
