The World Wide Web, Internet, and data servers have changed and extended their abilities dramatically in the last decade. Some of you probably remember the day when a couple of KB for download speed was heaven, and Bill Gates declared that 64KB of memory ought to be enough for anyone. This was replaced with hundreds of KB of bandwidth paired with terabyte-sized hard drives. Now we all have room to store our data, but how do we share it?
Just like mushrooms after a spring rain, with the increasing number of web users and improvements in download/upload speed, some specialized sites offer excellent deals, especially with media files. Usually these are built as social networking sites, encouraging you to connect with new friends. But what if you already have plenty of friends and you just need to quickly share a file with one of them?
Maybe you have lots of files packed up that you must send to a friend who isn't online; due to the quantity of data, the mail isn't an option and time is short. How do you let your friend know that when s/he finally arrives near a computer s/he can easily download the file?
The solution is provided by file hosting services. If possible, you should pick a free one as you may not have any time to spend with registering, entering your card number, being billed in the end, and so on. This article will try to show you some of the best free services that currently exist. I also hope to explain the necessary criteria on which to base choices and decisions like this.
