Do I need to pay for a good file sharing service
Mostly, you don’t. It all depends for which cause you’re going to be using the file sharing service in the first place. If you’re not intending on keeping the files for a longer period of time online, always available at your disposal, any service free of charge will be enough. Most of these services also offer a registration option, and this means you can have an account setup for free as well, having your own little control panel of your uploaded files with many different features regarding file management. Good file sharing services are easily recognized, as they should have a pleasant user interface, clearly indicated buttons and no ads. These mostly differentiate the non-paying users from those that actually pay for their service by providing the paying users with advanced security, more storage space and many different features which the non-paying users can’t use. This has proven to be a good policy for a file sharing service as these type of services are being used the most and are, therefore, increasing their quality continuously.
Using a file sharing service
As you probably know, piracy is practically being helped by file sharing services but so far there were no bills restraining the free Internet experience, in which you can practically use this world network as it was your own. SOPA and PIPA are voting out their bills that limit the Internet’s user rights significantly but we’re hoping for the best these won’t actually take place. Every file sharing service has its own policy which you should read thoroughly as you might find yourself breaking some general rules, mostly regarding piracy and other legal content, of that particular service, which gives them the right to report you to officials which will take further actions against you. Piracy is bad and you should have given up on all that ages ago, if you haven’t already. People don’t respect other people’s work and take a lot of things for granted. You can start making a better Internet experience yourself, by using the file sharing services inside legal bounds.
Creating your own file sharing service
If you consider yourself capable for such an endeavor it’s really quite easy to get everything set up for your own personal use. A basic part of any file sharing service is a reliable server with enough space, so you can practically order web hosting space, as if you were creating a normal Internet website, do some coding to connect that website’s user interface with the internals of the previously mentioned server, and you’re done! The coding is probably the hardest part, and if you already have enough coding knowledge to do that, you’re probably not even reading this article.
