On a side not Filesonic has now disable all filesharing.

Looks like we may not have "Won" as much as we thought we have.

The same has happened with Fileserve.. looks like an end to an era of file sharing.

Not sure, but a few are likely worried. Too many tracks on the WWW to completely disappear.

No need to worry, there are lots of megaupload alternatives out there. I've spent some time to research and compile this list. Megaupload was one of the best file hosting sites, fast speeds, unlimited downloads during happy hours, large storage limits, etc. I lost a lot of files including school and work documents. I made a list of real alternatives to megaupload. I only listed sites with minimal restrictions for downloading, large storage limits, and high popularity/reliability. The Alexa rank is an indicator of how popular a site is, I included it to distinguish the popular/reliable sites from new unproven file hosting sites.


jumbofiles.com
Benefits: 500GB storage space, unlimited parallel downloads, can resume broken downloads, download accelerator support
Restrictions: 1GB file size limit
Other positives: No CAPTCHA, no timer, remote http upload, FTP upload
Alexa rank: (4837) friend introduced me to this site last month, great features, still using them today.

fileflyer.com
Benefits: Unlimited storage space
Restrictions: 2GB file size, no file manager, only 1 download at a time (no parallel downloading)
Other positives: No CAPTCHA, no timer
Alexa rank: (22284) not as popular as the other sites here but they are seemingly owned by the makers of the popular Download Accelerator Plus.

2shared.com
Benefits: Unlimited parallel downloads, can resume broken downloads, download accelerator support
Restrictions: 1GB file size limit, no file manager
Other positives: No CAPTCHA, no timer, can search files
Alexa rank: (3307) I love being able to search the files at this site and you can "watch" what files are being downloaded.

zshare.net
Benefits: Unlimited storage space
Restrictions: 1GB file size limit, 50 seconds timer, only 1 download at a time, download accelerator support
Other positives: No CAPTCHA, no timer
Alexa rank: (1937) one of the oldest file hosting sites online since 2005, still using them today.

ifile.it
Benefits: Unlimited storage space, up to 2 parallel downloads, can resume broken downloads
Restrictions: 300MB file size limit, have to enter ReCAPTCHA to download
Other positives: No timer
Alexa rank: (2576) got a nice file manager, I don't use them that much now after they started requiring ReCAPTCHA to download files.

sendspace.com
Benefits: Unlimited storage space
Restrictions: 500MB file size limit, only 1 download at a time
Other positives: No CAPTCHA, no timer
Alexa rank: (1385) downloads are limited and slow but they have Android and iPhone apps available for their site.

mediafire.com
Benefits: Unlimited storage space, unlimited parallel downloads, can resume broken downloads, download accelerator support
Restrictions: 200MB file size limit
Other positives: Fast downloads, I can max out my 6mbps DSL!
Alexa rank: (66) the next biggest file hosting site after megaupload, very popular and trusted by many users around the world, I upload to here regularly.


If you know of any other file hosting site with below 5000 Alexa ranking, minimal download restrictions, and large storage space, let me know so I can update this list. Real alternatives and free user friendly sites only, not sites like rapidshare with 5 minute timers and hours of wait time between downloads.

speaking of alternatives to megaupload and other file sharing websites..I've been hearing about this new technology (they are calling it) coming from this Audials soft and apparently it is something similar to file sharing and megaupload but rumor has it it's much safer to use. any idea what that's about? I'd be curious to try something that is not illegal or anything. I was actually looking for info about Audials and what it can do but didn't find much about file sharing except some cloud storage how to instructions and I have a feeling this is not exactly the new technology I was hearing about. anyone else have any idea what this is?

I do not know about Audials and I do not really care. The bottom line is it is illegal to distribute any copyright protected file unless you have written permission to do so.

Audials Anywhere Turns Your PC in A Personal Media Cloud [Rumor] well apparently it's called Audials Anywhere and it's like a personal media cloud you can share with other people. i think it's pretty neat. kind of like a cloud storage but probably faster.
