Megaupload is an international one-click hosting website driven by Megaupload Limited, Hong Kong, available in many languages.
The basic service is available for free and allows users to upload files of up to 1024 MB. Free users cannot download files larger than 1 GB, however. Free registered users are offered 50 GB of total file storage. Premium users are offered 1 TB total file storage. After a successful file upload, the user is given a unique URL which allows others to download the file.
Any file uploaded anonymously will expire if there are no downloads for at least 21 days. For free registered accounts, the expiration period is at least 90 days of inactivity, which can be manually reset. Premium accounts have no expiration period as long as the user remains a premium member.
Megaupload attracted at least 10 million visitors annually by 2008 according to a Compete.com study.
