What is your favourite file hosting service?

Postby KG » Tue Feb 01, 2011 5:15 pm

This topic replaces the old one, which is now out of date:

Let's have some suggestions, then I'll put a poll together :D

The rules have been updated: do not post media from pay-per-click hosts, such as FileSonic and HotFile.

The jdownloader changelog shows that they have been supporting depositfiles since early 2010, and given the ease that you can download from it using scripts, I don't see how depositflies could be a problem.

Megaupload
Mediafire

I favour these 2 as the least hostile. Favorites with the asians and Russians. All support free resume, and change of IP. I pay for hotfile because it's cheap.

I don't like sanctions like this: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=5956&p=33970&hilit=stopjd#p33970

But in the meantime, it seems, they stopped using anti-JD-scripts...

Oh, Depositflies has changed its code in the last month. I can't download from it anymore. I took it off my list.

I notice, now, that Hotfile is all but dead, which is a shame, because I put $55 on that horse.

A regular downloader is now faced with Fileserve, Filesonic, Megashares, .... You have to go month to month on $10 bets.

Megashares actually allows you to search the files on-site - which is really weird, and fairly ballsy, so we can expect them to move to the front of the pack. Another interesting feature is that you can save a file to your account in a second. This creates a new link to the file and re-lists it. The files come in at 30MB/s, which is as fast as I can copy them on a hard drive.

Hotfile was very good and I agree with rating it highly.

Mediafire seems to be the best from a download perspective at the moment, although Megaupload and partners seem good as well. I always find rapidshare OK as you know where you stand with it.

On another forum I am a member of I used to download a lot of stuff (some very large files) from oron and it was good until I hit a 5000GB limit and now can't do anything.

If anyone can tell me the secret to downloading from filesonic under the free option I would appreciate it as I can never get that site to work (apart from when pigs are flying)

Not a big contributer but though I would give an opinion from the masses and also say thanks to those that are big contributers to a very good forum

I have been using MegaUpload and have been happy with it so far.

I hate imagebam for pictures.

One of the unpleasant surprises with some of the still image file hosting services are the pop-ups for pornographic pictures. I like to see classy photos of elegant women wearing leather and boots and really don't want this stuff. I'm also concerned about possible viruses hidden in the images. Would it be possible for KG to recommend simple and decent image hosting services?

I'm not KG, but I would recommend to use a browser with the possibility to use a popup-blocker.
FireFox and Chrome can load addons. The combination "Adblock Plus" and "NoScript" blocks the most of such unwanted popups and advertising.
You can even add your own unwanted internet addresses to the block-list.
