Free file hosting

Went hunting for a place to host an mp3 file for free


This ended up winning the prize but nearly didn't because of the hassles with needing to register with both Ourmedia and the Internet Archive. It has a file uploader that can be installed on my computer and once the registration with both Ourmedia and the Internet Archive this uploader worked well. I like the way that it guided me through the Creative Commons licensing options.


The free account allows the following

  • download 100 files or 100 MB, whichever comes first, per month.

  • cannot download any file greater than 10 MB. can upload and store files greater than 10 MB but will not be able to download these files until a Download Subscription is purchased

  • 10 GBs of storage

  • cannot host files or share them

Yahoo Briefcase - http://briefcase.yahoo.com/bc//home

30MB storage, 5MB file size limit and 15MB per upload

Free account does not permit sharing except with specified Yahoo users


Can store 100MB free but can not share

    I was looking for a free place to locate an MP3 podcast file that I had made. I am pleased to see that you reached the same conclusion. :-)

    www.upload2.net - a free file and image hosting service that allows you to share files up to 25 Mb each, with no bandwidth and file types limits. Total disk space is unlimited which means that you can upload as many files as you want. This hosting is a perfect place for your image galleries. You can upload several files at a time. The file upload / download is very simple and doesn't requre registration. You can download files with download managers such as Reget, FlashGet, GetRight in several threads. Among other things that make upload2.net different from most free file hosting providers is that their server keeps files online for one year.
