Top 5 Free File Sharing Websites

A Plenty of File Sharing websites have come up in the past two to three years with the aim of providing good storage capacity to their users. Due to tough competition among it’s peers, some of these websites have even started paying their users in the form of Bitcoins or extra free storage for referrals or for a particular number of downloads each user gets with his link.

There are many such services to choose from and I have listed the top 5 amongst them based on their popularity, the traffic they get, the free space they provide and also the pricing for each of their plans.


#1 Google Drive

Google’s services are always #1 in business. The Google Drive offers 15 GB of free space to all it’s users in which you can store all types of files and documents and also let’s you share your files with your friends, relatives and colleagues. If that 15 GB of free space if you think is not sufficient, then you can get more space which costs $1.99 per month for 100 GB, $9.99 for 1 TB per month and 10 TB for $99.99 per month.

I think a lot you guys haven’t heard about this site, Ziddu offers UNLIMITED storage space to it’s users completely free of cost. You can upload as much content as you want and even earn in the form of Bitcoins when you get enough downloads to your files.
