Comprehensive File-sharing Site list (Updated)

Comprehensive File-sharing Site list (Updated)

Email is a terrible way to exchange large files; the technology was never meant to be a file exchange service. FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is. But FTP is not always as convenient or accessible as using a simple browser interface.

I was recently asked by a client to recommend a simple, fast way to share files. Over the past year or two, many file-sharing sites have popped up. They allow you to share a large file or files for free by simply uploading the file and sharing the provided URL link with those you want to share the file with.

Here is a pretty comprehensive list of those I was able to compile.
