Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online

Will Mueller 12-06-2008

Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online documentsicon Recently, the need for space has become immense. Files have become increasingly larger, there are more things to download and so on. Personally, I run out of space on multiple drives all the time. Maybe you are trying to get a file sent to someone, but it’s too large for an attachment on your email. Possibly you want to backup some files to download later or multiple times. That is why there are free file hosts that let you store your files online.


I have found numerous different file hosting companies, many of them that supply users with an extremely small amount of space or limited features. Here they are, in no particular order:

Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online filedroppertap1. Filedropper – Filedropper is amazing. All you need to do to upload a file is click “Upload” and select a file.

Many free file hosting sites give users the option to upload file of up to 100-150MB, yet Filedropper allows users to upload an amazing 5GB!

When you finish uploading a file, Filedropper gives you the link and the source code to add to a website, if you like.

Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online fileqube2. Fileqube – Fileqube is another free file hosting site. It has an awesome site design that definitely shows it’s intentions. It is also extremely fast. When you upload a file, a link is provided to download the file, a link to remove the file, and HTML code to add to a website, etc. Unfortunately, Fileqube only allows for uploads of up to only 150MB, yet most certainly one of the best.


Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online myfreefilehosting13. MyFreeFileHosting– MyFreeFileHosting has an interface similar to MediaFire’s MediaFire: Unlimited File Storage Read More . It includes the option to send an notification email to someone to tell them of the upload, tags to categorize the file, etc. Of course, after one uploads the file, links are given to allow for download and distribution. The maximum file size allowed is 100MB.

Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online fileden4. Fileden – Fileden is one of the most useful file hosting services. Users are allowed to upload files, without an account, of files up to 100MB, yet you are allowed to register an account for free as well and receive unlimited diskspace, unlimited bandwith, the option to create projects, the ability to replace files, file statistics, project statistics, etc.

Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online easysharelogo5. Easyshare – Easyshare adds even more features to file hosting. Registering and uploading files occur quickly, with accounts allowing for downloading files multiple times. Unlike other free file hosts though, Easyshare pays users for their uploads. If your upload gets downloaded 10,000 times, you’ll apparently receive $20. If you have a personalized toolbar on your website, you can receive money from their uploads through that toolbar and if you refer another person to Easyshare you’ll receive 10% of their earnings.

Another neat thing about this site is the upload options. You can upload on the site from your computer, upload using an FTP server, upload using their free software, or use a remote upload from another server. The maximum file size for a free account is 100MB.


Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online filefactorylogo6. FileFactory – Filefactory is similar to all of the previous file hosts, except it supports the option to send a notification email to a person of an uploaded file. Unfortunately, Filefactory contains a large amount of ads if you do not receive the premium service. Yet, unlike the other file hosts, the maximum file size is 300MB which is a large amount per file in comparison. Similar to Easyshare, users are paid for each download they receive from a certain file.

Top Free File Hosts To Store Your Files Online badongologo7. Badongo – Badongo is an exceptionally neat file host, and I would most certainly rate it as one of the best. As a unregistered user, you are allowed to upload up to 4.8GB a day and as a free, registered user, 12GB a day. To make it similar to Filedropper, Badongo allows users to upload files of a maximum size of 1GB. When you register with Badongo you even receive an account that stores all of your files of course, but also allows users to create picture albums out of the pictures they store. This brings even more wonderful features to this awesome site.

More features include the option to create an MP3 player on your website by pasting code from your account, the ability to create slideshows from pictures with multiple effects, a file widget tool to place on websites, a desktop application for uploading files quickly, etc.

Now that you have seen some of the top web hosts, tell us what you use to upload and store your files online.

  16. Darius

    Since we started offering filehosting services through UploadCell.
    We have deleted a very small number of accounts ONLY for violating our terms of use.
    Someone who does not respect our TOS, has no place on UploadCell.
    So shelly if you have any other questions,please contact with us instead of saying for a decent file hosting site that is scam.

    Uploadcell seems really unstable for me, slow, not good uploading features. Someone downloads my files and then the files are removed along with any epoints generated with them. Perhaps a scam ?

    It's really sad to see people who tried to cheat, to leave that kind of comments.
    Every user who respects our TOS has no problem.
    When someone just upload files in order to download them himself to generate points, it's logical to loose them.
    We respect our users and they do respect us.

    Everyone can register on UploadCell and use our services in order to have a personal opinion about us.

    It seems that a lot of those sites have a thing that will delete your stuff after after a certain amount of days or inactive files after 90 days or something....are there any that hold it permanetnly? I have a lot of files that I would not be "active" with all the time but dont' have room on my computer anymore.

    August 6, 2008 at 5:04 am

    Very useful list! Thanks a lot!

    P.S. For God's sake, boycott the f***ing Rapidshare! Why so many many people are using this crap? For God's sake, it's not free and it nags the f**k out of us! What else to say? We live in the era of free Internet and free software, there are dozens and hundreds of free host servers outthere (you've mentioned some of them), why bother with this nag, f***ing Rapidshare? FREE INTERNET!

  51. MountedWeb

  52. aznman
    July 14, 2008 at 6:05 pm

    I've been hosting my files at It seems to work pretty fast but there are a few things I wish they would upgrade.

    Pros: The payout seems to be the highest on the web to date from what I can see. They let you host unlimited files (how do they do that?). The speed is pretty good. If you see other bizzyfile links out there you can download them for free with the exception of a timer..but you can buy points which will lift the timer.

    You can use points when you want so you don't have to worry about any time lines.

    Cons: They don't have a progress bar which would be nice to visually see when your file will be done uploading. Also you can't rename your files but that could be do to a security issue, I'm not sure.

    The design of the website is pretty clean. reminds me of facebook. The usability is pretty intuitive, with some pretty good features.

    Overall I would highly recommend this file hosting site. Seems new but I think that people will turn onto it pretty quick since it's unlimited file hosting and the payout is very fair.

    June 15, 2008 at 12:45 am

    And now after checking those site out...Badongo deletes inactive files after certain period of time and it says it's allowed 12GB for download, not upload. It says it's only 1GB for single upload. And Filedropper doesn't have free account (only free 7 days trial)

    *sigh* when the perfect one will come? :)

    What about It has DAV support (it mounts your storage as a drive on your PC), unlimited file size, unlimited number of files, unlimited space, no restrictions on type, and you can get a link to share any file with the public! It is the best file upload service ever in my opinion

  64. Gavin
    June 14, 2008 at 6:08 pm

    I have just tried and despite their claims of unlimited file size, they limit image files to 8MB

    • traacer
      June 16, 2008 at 7:58 pm is def my fav too, not the most space but allows you to not only send the file as fax but receive faxes to the drop, email them, and allows for quick password protection and retreival of the files with a easy to remember URL.

    Surprising that you included MediaFire only as a reference to a site that ripped them off. and eatlime are good left off the list too..

    MediaFire is definitely worthyt, if not the best host out there... imho anyway...

    June 14, 2008 at 3:04 pm

    For me there's one catch:

    Q: Are files with the same name case sensitive?
    A: Files are case INsensitive. For example: ADrive will consider test.txt and TeSt.txt the same file even if they contain different data.

  71. sabbour
    June 14, 2008 at 2:44 pm

    Innovative service, EatLime lets your friends start downloading your shared files as soon as you start uploading them, making the entire sharing process much faster!

    Very nice too

  72. filedropper
    June 14, 2008 at 2:23 pm

    i used filedropper when it was first announced, and all of my files disappeared within a few days. i wasn't sharing any pirated goods, they were just zip files for a friend. i thought he was being a fool until i went and checked the files for myself. haven't been able to trust them since then.

  73. Wyatt
    June 14, 2008 at 1:37 pm

    I thought was great too, until I tried to upload a file. 3 weeks later and four computers running firefox and internet explore, I have not been able to completely upload a 500mb file.

    Don't waste your time with the site.

  74. Robert

  76. Tom
    June 14, 2008 at 11:09 am

    They are great for stuff like images, word documents or pdfs. They allow you to directly link to your files (so you can post a link on your site or on forums somewhere, and people can download the file without waiting for a download timer or anything). They also say that they will add most file formats that your request.

    It has advanced file tagging and searching, previewing of all MS Office type documents, image slide shows, versioning and sharing, you can collaborate with other users, upload VIA email, and much more.

    Don't forget Mozy. I know it's a backup service rather than a file hosting site but if you want to store files offline it is excellent.

    I've been using to store my mp3s (hotlinking allowed). They work so well but Diskspace and Bandwith are NOT unlimited. is the best site for uploading mp3 so far.

    Thanks for the collection.

      You sure they were *your* mp3s? (ie. you hold the copyright on them?)

    I believe Adrive is the way to go. They provide good download speeds too...

    Online storage is like our era : the difficulty is not to find, but to choose. Hyper-choice. That's why topics like this one, wide, interested as well by the quantity than by the quality depending on what we need, is profitable. I love these comparison sheets.

    You are talking about these hosts as if they were the best of the best but their download speed is too slow.

        You're joking right?

        Rapidshare is the *worst*.

        Makes you jump through literally a dozen hoops to give you the file, and it's slow too unless you pay for the premium service.

          Rapidshare does not make you jump through "dozens" of hoops. You click on the link, wait 45 seconds or so, and you're done.

          Megaupload is the one with the 3-letter "combination" and then a timer.

          I suppose someone down there has already mentioned FileFront, which supports uploads up to 1 GB and can support download speeds up to about 1MB/s that I've seen.

      I second Vincent, Windows Live SkyDrive is one of the best online storage tools I have seen.

          Skydrive is good, but Windows Live Mesh is even better. It will create a folder sync from my PC (soon to be Mac and mobile) so that my stuff automatically gets uploaded. Bad ass.
