Have you ever been in a situation where you really want to transfer files to someone via email attachment only to be told the file size is too big to be attached? Some free email services has a limit of 25MB file attachment size while some premium email services may allow up to 200MB, let’s say you want to transfer 500MB worth of files to someone, sending via email is definitely not an option anymore.
The next option will be to share such file via file hosting service. I must confess I am one of those few who do not like online registrations especially in a situation where I quickly need to transfer files to someone, you may have to wait for an hour or more sometimes for the confirmation emails to arrive, some may even hot the junk folder while you are waiting for it on the inbox. I know there are people out there who do not want to register with any file hosting service to be able to transfer files, so I am going to introduce you to 5 awesome file hosting service websites where you can quickly transfer files without registration.
