RapidShare and MegaUpload are the most popular file hosting websites. We often use these services to share files that are too large to email. We can conveniently upload a file and let our contacts know the URL of our file. However these popular websites are no longer the best file hosting options available.
This is due to the emerging file hosting sites which offer great upload and download speeds and extended security measures. A wonderful example of such a site is Senduit.
Senduit is free file hosting website. The interface is very straightforward and we can get to the file-uploading business right away. The homepage is as in the image above. All we have to do is click on the CHOOSE FILE button and browse to our file’s location on our computer. The selected file’s size cannot exceed 100MB; this large file size limit is quite impressive for a free website.
If the contents of the file are sensitive, we can choose to set an expiration time in the EXPIRE IN field.
Undoubtedly the feature to set the expiration ourselves will be appreciated by a lot of users.
Once we have chosen the file and set the expiration, we can click on the UPLOAD button and wait while our file uploads.
After the upload we are provided with the URL of our file.
This URL can be distributed amongst our friends and given to anybody we wish to share the file with. When the URL is opened, the download begins immediately, without any waiting times or countdowns. And after our set time limit, the file is deleted from Senduit’s servers.
File hosting solutions like Senduit keep making the internet more convenient to use.
