Alternative to dropbox?

06 May 2014, 00:31

So I used dropbox for my script to download some information, but it has reached it's brandwidth(20/10GB for free users), is there another cloud service wich mantains a static link for a uploaded file?

But I'm not sure if its possible anymore.

Google_Drive is possible but the static links are not given but you can find them.

Well google gives 15gb free... But actually there are so many free website hosts... And with a simple login, upload and download page... You can basically get free unlimited space... :P
I can post a simple implementation on request.

Here is what it looks like http://joedf.freeserver.me
And here is a download link : http://joedf.freeserver.me/files/SimpleBox.zip
People can download the files but cannot see the file listing. People can not upload.
If you sign in, you have a access to these.

Also be sure to change the username and password in the file "p_login.php".

http://www.2freehosting.com/ is basically 99.9% reliable but only gives you 150 GB
http://3owl.com/ gives you unlimited space, but if you abuse CPU like crazy, they will block the server for the whole month. (I hardly believe that's going to happen.)

Upload it with FTP.. done! ;)

Why does this feel like a scam? I first tried to get an account at 3owl.com. For seven times I have asked for the confirmation e-mail, on two different addresses (@aol.com and @yahoo.com) and nothing arrived.

I have tried again at 2freehosting.com. The very same e-mail verification system, even the very same wording in that message. And of course, no verification e-mail arrived. Red light went off all of a sudden.

A simple comparison on the IPs confirmed that both so-called hosts are actually the same, located at the same IP:

Code: Select all

inetnum:        31.170.166.0 - 31.170.167.255
netname:        MAIN-HOSTING-SERVERS
descr:          Main Hosting Servers
country:        US
admin-c:        HN1858-RIPE
tech-c:         HN1858-RIPE
status:         ASSIGNED PA
mnt-by:         MNT-HOSTINGER
source:         RIPE # Filtered

person:         Hostinger NOC
address:        Hostinger, UAB
address:        Europos pr. 32, Kaunas
address:        Lithuania
Does anybody have a sane explanation for this? Joe...?

https://mega.co.nz/ can generate download links. 50 gb for free, synchronization software and one of the best web interfaces.

I'm not able to create direct links with either Dropbox or Copy anymore.
Does anybody have the same problem?

Of course, on both providers.
Maybe I shouldn't have chosen 'Romania' for the location when registering the accounts... :roll:

Yeah... I know the world "loves" us but i gave up trying to show we're not all rotten. The world's f-ed up in itself anyway. :roll:

Now seriously, I really need a quick, free host with WordPress capabilities because some time ago someone p-ed me off badly and I deleted my six-year old blog which I'd like to bring back from a local backup. Unfortunately, my connection/ISP/whatever doesn't allow me to host a HTTP server, otherwise I'd have done the export/import long ago; instead, I'd have to transfer the database to an external host, operate whatever changes may be required over there and only then import it to the old blog.

FYI, none of the (apparently) two hosting sites ever sent the confirmation e-mail, as I'm typing this. :( And for some strange reason I'm not getting notification replies for my posts here either (checkbox below is marked). I must have been born on the wrong side of the Earth... :roll:
