Hotfile is a popular file sharing and hosting website like Rapidshare that allows users to upload files and share it with others with custom download links. Hotfile users can generate money by uploading files to their account and distributing it on the internet. Like any other file sharing sites, Hotfile imposes certain restrictions on free account. The non-premium Hotfile account users may not be able to download multiple files at the same time- also they are not allowed to direct download Hotfile uploads using download managers like IDM. The only option to bypass these limitations is to buy Hotfile premium account or the use of applications like Hotfile auto downloader and Download Direct.
Hotfile is nowadays very commonly used in forums and websites to share large files. The investment on a premium account is good if you are a frequent downloader or blogger sharing large media files. Bloggers using shared hosting are limited to certain bandwidth restrictions. So if they use the hotlinking feature of Hotfile, they can save bandwidth and at the same time provide direct download links for their readers.
Features of Hotfile premium account:
Download multiple files from Hotfile servers without limit.
Pause and restart Hotfile downloads.
Use as a Backup for files: Hotfile uploads are not visible to search engines, unless they are shared on websites. So users can save the backup copies of their documents on Hotfile account online. But keep in mind that it’s not secure as the free storage and backup service that we shared earlier.
Hotlink Hotfile downloads: This is a special feature for Hotfile premium account users to enable hotlinking to their uploads. That is the non-premium users can download such files direct and without going for a timer or Captcha verification.
High speed download with download managers: Hotfile premium users can download files at high speed using download managers. Go to the download manager settings to find site logins and enter premium details to auto download files from the internet.
Make money from Hotfile: One of the main reasons for the popularity of Hotfile is the reward program.
