4 Free File Hosts Supporting Resume in Downloads

A file host is that on which you can upload a file and then share it with your blog/website visitors and friends .Your visitors can download the file with a specific .

Needs of using a filehost other than your webhost

If you are using shared web hosting then generally you will get following facilities in most of the webhostings .

Unlimited web spaceunlimited webspace

Unlimited bandwidth /Transfer

But in Terms and conditions of all shared hosting plans it is clearly said that if a shared hosting account affects  other  hosting accounts shared on the same server then your hosting account may be suspended .So if you share large files [ more than 10 mb ] and these files are downloaded heavily then it will surely take much more bandwidth and may be possible that the shared server may be overloaded.

BESIDES

If you are on blogspot then you can not upload files other than images and videos.

So it is better if you host your large files on  file sharing systems .

Most of free file hosts have following great disadvantages

  • Waiting time up to 2 minutes
  • Have to enter CAPTCHA text
  • No download resume support
  • No one can download more than one file at a time
  • A novice internet visitor may be confused on download page due to advertises ,CAPTCHA text and time countdown .

Notable point

      Dear Pumama .
      It may be possible that downloading speed via ziddu is bad .
      Actually ziddu supports parallel downloads and there are only few file host those give this service on free downloads .

    Why did not you mentioned mediafire.com? It is considered one of the best file host that support resume capability and big file size allowed =200mb (for free users) and 2000mb for pro.
    Anyway from the mentioned 4 hosts, I think fileden is the best.

    I love megaupload coz it supports broken downloads.The thing that i hate the most is users
    uploading their files in hosting sites like rapidshare and hotfile.

    Hi shariq.I want to ask u a question.I used to download files from rapidshare but know i m not able to download it.
    I think rapidshare has changed their location to cham switzerland and may be coz of their shifting i m not able to download any files.

    If anyone knows its solution then plz email me at
    feel_kp@yahoo.com

    hey guys most of the sites he insisted like fileden allows only 100mb of file size per file , data file host only gives 100mb per file, and normally uploaders don’t choose ziddu it may be popular for music and other small size downloads so most of the site its bad but i go with megaupload and there are other sites which are popular and gives freedom like
    1.duckload
    2.mediafire
    3.megaupload
    4.letitbit
    here are these which give resume capability with no restriction to file size so use themhappily it may be good news for dial up users who may pause the download when connection ends and if you want to know how to download torrent files with direct link visit my blog

    Dear Shariq I have found 2 other file-hosting websites that allow free users once they sign up with them allow Support for resuming up & downloads
    these are:

    Bitshare.com
    Wupload.com

    i use Mipony download manager but i think it will work with any other download manager, sadly the waiting time to resume download is 15 minutes, well it worth it if you are downloading a 1 gig file and they both offer a huge download limit I believe it was 1 gig.
