When it comes to free file hosting, MediaFire is my favourite host due to several reasons. First, it has no file download limits. And best of all, we can download multiple files using download managers,
The most popular file host, Rapidshare, doesn’t offer all this for free so that gives MediaFire a plus point. Even though you can use any of your favourite download managers, but here’s one I found that might be inetersting to you all.
As we all know, RapidShare has many limitations for it’s free users, like no simultaneous downloads, download timer and you can not even add multiple links in queue. Plus you have to individually start each download after it finishes.
Recently, while browsing an underground discussion board, I came across an excellent tool to download files off RapidShare. It has nothing special, other than free users can add multiple links in a queue and download in a fully automated way.
Just woke up now, and to my surprise got the first news of the day delivered to me by Sandip, of BlogsDNA. RapidShare is one of the biggest file hosters around the world offering storage capacity of several petabytes (a petabyte is a million gigabytes) and an internet connection that transfers hundreds of gigabytes simultaneously. Yesterday, they had a design change which is more simple, faster and easier in usability.

Rapidshare currently has about 230GBit/s of Internet connectivity and 4.5 Petabytes of storage. This makes them one of the world’s biggest and the fastest web hosts around the world. If you see carefully, Rapidshare is a gold mine of its own. I mean, thousands of files are being uploaded everyday. I can bet, there will be hundreds or maybe thousands of files that will be of some use to us, that are available on Rapidshare. But just because it doesn’t have a search engine of its own, we couldn’t search them.
Still some people use complex search queries and try to Google out the files stored on Rapidshare. I have collected a very big list of Rapidshare search engines. Compiled with the help of friends and my best friend, Google.com.
Rapidshare search engines are popping up everyday, but not all index files regularly and updates their database. You can use the following list of search engines to search files on Rapidshare.
RapidZilla (My favourite!)
Phew! That’s all I know. If there is any other site that you use and would like to share, then drop a comment below and I’ll add it above. And if you already use any of the above, do let me know your favourites.

If you upload and share a lot of files using free file hosts, then you will find this service quite interesting and useful. TinyLoad allows you to upload files to multiple hosts at the same time. This gives your file downloaders a choice whether they want to download the file from RapidShare or from MegaUpload, SendSpace etc.
File hosts that are supported by TinyLoad are MegaUpload, RapidShare, FileFactory, DivShare, BestSharing, SendSpace, Uploading, FileSend, Easy Share, Bandongo, zShare and Amazon S3. The maximum file size that you can upload is 100MB. You get the links almost instantly, but sometimes due to server load, it might take a while to appear. No need to panic, patience pays off! ;)
It’s just been four days, and my previous post on RapidShare Happy Hours Detector is one of the most popular posts of this blog. Since, the first word of happy hours got out, it has gained a lot of popularity and a number of developers have tried in making numerous RapidShare (RS) Happy Hours detectors, but not all off them worked.
Here’s something that all free RapidShare users will like. While browsing an underground forum yesterday, I found a very nice application that notifies us whenever RapidShare Happy Hours are enabled.
