Rapidshare is the world’s largest free file hosting service on the Internet with petabytes of storage and petabytes of data transfer from their data-center every day. Rapidshare had a RapidPoint system which was quite famous and people do love Rapidshare because of it. Although it is the biggest file hosting site, but still to my amaze most of the people don’t know and have no idea that how to download files from Rapidshare.
Everyone wants to upload images for free and then share them with their friends over the Internet throught orkut, facebook, twitter, myspace or any other social media service and sometimes even through email or instant messengers. Most of the free image hosting services have a very major problem in them, and that is – they don’t allow hot-linking.
Rapidshare.com was founded just 3 years ago in year 2006 and became the world’s best file hosting and file sharing service. Rapidshare is currently hosting several petabytes of data with hundreds of gigabyte bandwidth Internet connection to their servers for providing the users with a free file sharing / file hosting service. During last year rapidshare changed an overall interface of their website and now rapidshare is going to provide even a better interface for their premium account members.
Megaupload.com finally realized the problem and changed the total design of the website. They had been trying hard to get into the business more like the rapidshare but had always been lacking behind. Megaupload’s major problem in the previous design was the total flash based interface. Everything on the site was flashed based and the users used to get annoyed with slow loading speed of the website.
