Rapidgator.net is a well-known file host and sharing service. The site’s age is a testament to its resiliency: despite numerous reports that it had shut down, Rapidgator is still operating today. Many of their features focus on promoting the variety of both premium plan features and affiliate plans on offer.
Unfortunately, this can make the service less attractive to the free user base, due to download wait times, the requirement to create an account in order to upload, and a captcha required to download.
ShareByLink is an excellent free alternative to Rapidgator. It has no signups, no waiting to download, no captcha for safe files, and allows users to upload multiple files at once. The easy to use web tool makes it simple to get started with any internet-connected device.
Perhaps due to the age of Rapidgator’s service, many of the site features feel dated. Yet it does feature a wide variety of file management features and posting options for users willing to spend the time it takes to learn how to use the system.
Rapidgator has long struggled with piracy issues, and this reputation may dissuade enterprise users and professionals from the service. However, depending on the use case, Rapidgator could be a useful part of a cloud tool set.
What sets it apart from the rest:
Rapidgator offers lots of storage space, affiliate plans, and FTP integration.
The dated interface and annoying downsides that try to push users towards a paid plan may be deal-breakers for many, especially with so many other free options available on the market.
