Get 250GB Free File Hosting on File Dropper

File Dropper logoSmashingApps and File Dropper are partnering to make the Earth greener by giving out 250GB file hosting accounts to those who pledge on going green. Their reason is, by giving out free file hosting accounts, you can share documents electronically and not waste paper by printing all the time.


While I am unsure whether papers or servers would do more harm to the environment, I believe this is a good deal since there is nothing to lose.

Long story short, here’s how to claim your free 250GB free file hosting account:

  1. Pledge about going green & link to SmashingApps (via Twitter, blog, YouTube or Flickr).
  2. Post a comment on the SmashingApps blog post linking to the medium you’ve used to pledge.
  3. Go to the File Dropper promotional page.
  4. Create an account using the promotion code “smashingapps“.

To be honest, you can actually skip right to Step 3 and create your account right way without pledging. In fact, I created my free account first before pledging. But it’s always good to play nice when someone is giving something for free, and for good deed.

The promotional page says that the offer will expire on January 15th and only 100GB will be given, but the smashingapps promotion code is good until January 30th and will boost the storage to 250GB.

Some information on the free File Dropper account:

  • 250GB storage
  • 5GB limit for each file.
  • Though image hotlinking is allowed, it will be watermarked.
  • Account will expire in 2038, according to my account information.
  • Nice file sharing link ([file name])
  • No annoying timer like RapidShare and Megaupload.
  • Big download button, easy to find
  • The files are kept forever as long as they are being downloaded. (What? Meaning?)
  • Files can be emailed directly
  • Files can be made public, private or password protected

Pretty good huh? Go get your free account already.

My pledge: I promise to use less electricity and water, and save as much resources as I can.

    I tried FileDropper once and wasn’t quite impressed. My upload always failed half-way (and it was only like a 20 MB file or something)

    Hope that they’ve made their servers more reliable

      I’m unsure of that, since my uploads are of small files. I like it for its simplicity, not trashing downloaders with ads and annoying timer.

      Will try to upload a bigger file later to see if it’ll fail.

    A web hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.

    Sometimes people prefer hosting their files on a publicly accessible HTTP server. In this case, they generally choose paid hosting, and use their hosting for this purpose. Many free hosting providers do not allow the storage of files for non-website-related use. Thanks.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
