RapidShare is an online file hosting service started in the year 2002 by Christian Schmid and dissolved in the year 2015.

It is an online file storage service that helps to upload multiple files and generate private download links. With the help of the link we can share the content to anyone. Uploading files to Rapidshare is easy just select the file and click the “Upload” button.

We can also use the Flash-based upload manager that allows us to upload up to three files at a time. The size limit for RapidShare files is 500 MB, but we can split up larger archives if necessary.

The disadvantage is that there are certain limitations in free accounts.
