Megaupload.com is an online file hosting site
The benefits to this services is multi-faceted:
- It is more secure than normal e-mail.
- It is absolutely free (up to 250MB).
- No special software or equipment is needed.
- The file can't be removed or deleted by anyone but Megaupload.com or yourself.
- With files up to 250MB in size (for the free service, up to 500MB for a charge), you can send large files without worrying about the recipient's email server rejecting the file because it is to big or their inbox is full.
- Multiple parties can access this information if given the proper access links. This allows you to upload a file, give the access to several people, then add more at a later date without having to re-upload the attachment.
- Friends and contacts can download the file at their leisure, rather than having to wait for a large file to download into their email before they can send or receive other emails.
- Files can be used anywhere there's an internet connection. You can upload documents from your office to use at home or at an internet cafe and then re-upload the corrected versions later, without having to carry a disk.
- You can download the file again if you lost it or accidentally deleted it.
Megaupload.com is not a permanent storage solution however. While other companies exist that allow you to save "backups" of you files for months or even years at a small fee, Megaupload.com is designed for files that are a little more temporary. To this extent, there is a 21 day limit on files. If something hasn't been downloaded in 21 days, it is automatically deleted from the server to clear space for more free uploads.

I was suprised that a site ranked so high on Alexa could have a service so hard to use. If I didnt want to install their tool bar it wouldnt let me upload files as people who have the installed tool bar get prefered seating in this upper scale local. I wont install stuff on my computer to use a free service. :( ya lost me @ [UPLOAD]

What could we do without MegaUpload?
I don't know how I could get through life without sending files to each other. I can't remote-desktop connect between computers (for some reason) and I need someone to answer my requests to send a file... but nobody's home. Thank god MegaUpload has this service to send files quickly and all so fine without problems! --184.108.40.206 11:44, 18 September 2007 (PDT)
