Do you want to share videos or photos with your friend? One option is send all your files via email. The result is clogged inboxes and a good likelihood that emails may bounce or land in spam.
Or you can use a file sharing service.
We’ve all heard of ZIP files and I’m sure many of you have heard of RAR files as well. Here is where rarhost steps in.
rarhost is a unique new file hosting site, only for winrar .rar archives. It offers much more than just basic file hosting; the system has advanced information about each rar file. For example you can see what the archive contains before you download, ensuring it contains the files you want.
For the uploader:
- host unlimited .rar files online and share with friends.
- 150mb size limit per .rar, split archives allowed with no upload limit.
For the downloader:
- view the contents of the archive before you download, ensuring it contains the files you want.
- advanced password support, no more downloading a .rar just to find out you need a password!
- file management system; keep track of your uploads, edit, delete etc.
- check how many downloads your .rar has been downloaded.
- files will only be removed if they have not been downloaded in 2 months, opposed to 30 days.
I’m still not sure about their revenue model yet, but they have been operating since August 2006, so they must be doing something right 🙂
And the best part is that you don’t need WinRAR which is a paid software. You can get hold of a free compression software like 7-zip.
