File sharing service DivShare isn’t dead yet

Once upon a a time, DivShare was my favorite file sharing service. The company offered unlimited storage space and unlimited downloads, and tools that let you embed uploaded audio, video, and image files on any web page. But last year the company bowed to the inevitable and realized that unlimited free storage is a tough business model to maintain, and implemented a 5GB storage limit and 50GB bandwidth cap on free accounts.

Now that bandwidth cap is even lower, at just 10GB. Paid account holders can get up to 50GB of storage space and 500GB of bandwidth per month. And according to TechCrunch, the company is actually turning a profit. The company was put up for sale last year, and after a pretty long period on the auction block, DivShare was recently purchased by a company called 3Sixty. So it looks like DivShare isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

There are plenty of other services out there that offer 5GB or more of free storage space. But if you just need a quick and easy to use service that will let you host media files, DivShare is certainly worth checking out.
