    File-Hero.com, "We'll save your files!"
    (hurr i thought of that myself)

    I know this is a shameless plug, but sometimes I see facepunch in a lack of a good upload site.

    (if you are offended by profanity in any way please leave the thread now and fuck yourself)

    The story

    So one day me and my friend Shay were chilling the fuck out and he's like "yo herb let's make a goddamn file site" and I was like "Hell yeah" so we FUCKING DID IT. So we sat there for 15 minutes thinking of a name and we got File Hero, but some dickbag decided to park it (filehero.com) at that time (its now a site for downloading youtube videos). So we stuck a hyphen in that bitch. We got the site up in a week and it was shitty but it worked. We used generated buttons and a horrible looking layout. Our tagline was the most boring shit ever "Free File Uploading!". Because of these reasons we never really got traffic or even promoted it because it sucked too much ass.

    Then one day when I was taking a shit I thought of the current tagline which is COMPLETELY HILARIOUS AND NOT CHEESY AT ALL and we put it on the site. And then about a week ago Shay talked to some fag and we got a new template which is SHIT GREEN but at least it looks presentable now. And it still retains it's fast speeds and reliability. And that's how it got to how it is.

    The site

    It's pretty fucking simple. Press upload button, pick file, press giant UPLOAD button, wait a MINIMAL TIME SPAN, receive download link/hotlink, and you're done. Couldn't be simpler.

    We have support for a lot of files, you can see a full list above. We added Lua file uploading since a lot of use Facepunchers and Garry's Mod players use Lua files daily. If you see any file missing, tell us, and we'll try to add it as long as it doesn't pose a security risk.

    If someone uploaded something bad, IE warez or a private Lua script you don't want distributed, just click the report button on the file and we'll delete it ASAP. (provided the report is legit)

    Why you should fucking use it

    Because the rest of the sites are complicated, have shit download/upload speeds, look fucking nasty as compared to our extremely easy to use and fast site that doesn't look half bad. We have a 1GB limit for each file, that's a lot of fucking space. If you want to upload and get the hotlink for an image it takes 5 clicks, 10 seconds. Easy shit.

    Why it destroys other sites:

    Megaupload - Captcha bullshit, not too good speeds.
    Mediafire - Complicated uploader, captcha bullshit, etc
    Rapidshare - Speeds, waiting time
    Filesmelt - Looks like shit, can't upload same name files
    Tocarno - Cheap Mexican service

    So I'm inviting you to bookmark File-Hero.com and use it as much as you can, because it'll make on-the-go filesharing or hotlinking just that much simpler. Plus you'll be helping a fellow Facepuncher out.

    Oh, here's a link (for lazy faggots): http://www.file-hero.com

    Now get to uploading shit!

    Depends on your area and connection, I get around 1.3mbps download from it.
    Mediafire - Complicated uploader, captcha bullshit, etc
    If the uploader is complicated how can you even use a computer?!
    Rapidshare - Speeds, waiting time
    Again, depends on your area/connection and just get an account, it's worth it.
    Filesmelt - Looks like shit, can't upload same name files
    You don't need looks on a simple filehosting site, and you can indeed upload files with the same name, I've done it 6 times today...
    Tocarno - Cheap Mexican service
    Oh come on, now you're just looking for random sites...

    Its IP changed within the last two days due to our host moving servers, Your DNS probably hasn't reflected this yet.

    Tocarno is there because a friend made it, and it's an inside joke kind of. And I do know how to use a computer, in no way are any of those sites complicated for me. What I mean by saying complicated is our uploader is a lot simpler then theirs, it directly takes you to the browse screen and uploads.

    Nice job. Your piece of shit site doesn't even load.

    If this was sarcasm, I shouldn't have to archive a small ass file just to upload it somewhere...
    If it wasn't sarcasm, then yes, I agree.

    You have a relatively high percentage of breaking your finger when you make that extra click. Do you really want to take the chance?

    I know, right? I just uploaded it on Filesmelt, it took the same time. I never said Filesmelt was bad for speeds, because it's too an 'indie' site and doesn't get much traffic. But on the bigger sites, like Mediafire, when you upload big files you should notice a decrease in time spent uploading.

    Okay, I'd rather not answer questions which have been answered in the first post, so I'll make a sarcastic response.

    In relation to what? We use a lot of different security.

    Don't do that. If somebody asks you a question about the site, requote the OP or answer it yourself.

    I'm not about to divulge my actual security protocols for obvious reasons, but I will say petty things such as RFI will not work. Once the file is uploaded the actual filename on the server is never revealed, including in the hotlink. Even if someone was to find the directories where the files are uploaded to, the files are of course not saved as their uploaded names, and .htaccess prevents directory listings. Those who wish to search for the directory will be met with false positives as all 404 directories automatically redirect to the homepage, as do actual directories.


    And other than those general measures, I don't feel comfortable revealing anything further.

    CP doesn't necessarily have to have a victim, it's just that 99.9% of the time it does. The thing with pedos is that they've been demonized to be horrible no matter what, and I don't think that's the case.
