There is one basic and simple rule to make your uploads stored as long as possible: USE MANY DIFFERENT FILE HOSTS!
Your uploads are save as long as you store your files on different hosts using multiple accounts and different nicknames. Be like the upload guerilla!
and use everything!
I use 3 different file hosts a 2 accounts. Be smart and use Online Mass Upload Sites to create multiple mirrors with ONE upload! The time saved for reuploading compensates for all inconvenience (registring multiple accounts on different file hosts). Some file hosts supports account sharing and cloning. Use this feature to create identical accounts with the same files! That's all! Good luck uploaders!
Personal review:Update: Online Mass Upload Sites:
It mirror files on
Uploaded.to | Mediafire | Megaupload | Filefront | Rapidshare | Zippyshare | Zshare | Sendspace | FileFactory | EasyShare | Depositfiles | Imageshack |
It'll probably replace shareonall.com
HideMyAss.com 200mbOne Click Uploaders:
binload.to supports uploads to 300 MB size and has almost no waiting time. The speed is excellent!
MF supports multiple uploads, has no waiting time and the files are stored for an unlimited time. But there has been a number of account bans and deletion and that's why I recommend everyone who use MF:
- To create multiple account clones by copying shared files to multiple mediafire accounts. If one account is deleted the files will stay avaiable as long as the other account is online.
- To not reveal your folder keys publicly otherwise your nickname will be revealed and your account can be deleted quite easily (happend in the past a lot).
- To link each file individually
BLOCKS ASIAN COUNTRIES!
DS supports folders, multiple uploads and has no waiting time. On the other hand the download speed is quite low (20-30 KB/s). It has a nice feature: mp3, pdf or txt can be read or played online.
I use it for smaller uploads or unlicensed scanlations.
There has been a lot of cases where files were deleted or accounts banned. But all in all it's still a reliable file host. As long as your files are under 100 MB you can use MU's creadit system to get a premium account. The speed is good, but the availability very bad. Many countries are unable to connect
to MU or suffer from the HIGH WAITING TIME
. Use this only for big files and small numbers!
4) zshare.comIncredible slow download speed
but the files last long. Since it's not so popular like other file hosts the risk of getting deleted files are quite low. If you have a lot of volumes and want your files to be stored without worrying whether it gets deleted or not, use this file host.
Forget it! The high waiting time and IP restriction makes it almost impossible to download without premium account. The only strong point is the speed. Use this filehost for oneshots or specials.
My personal favourite of the most annoying file hosts. Don't be like those guys on mangahelpers.com and stay away from this file host. It's gross!
