Rapid-share are a file hosting company.
People upload copyrighted files to a hosting site like Rapidshare so they don't need to seed and most file hosts offer cash rewards for a high amount of traffic to a file.

Rapidshare offer SSL encrypted downloads which gives a lot or pirates peace of mind as opposed to torrents where your IP address is readily available.

I for one have been using file hosting website for 4 years nearly. I consistently receive 6.0MBps which is another advantage of downloading from servers.

One more thing usually its around $11 a month for premium accounts with file hosts and this gives you unlimited downloads.

Hope this helps.

If your gonna pay $11USD and more than likely use your bank card then don't do it. If those servers get hacked or are under investigation then you yourself may be at risk.

That's just like saying by using any server your at risk of hackers (Sony are a prime example).

But I suppose if the file hosts were legally required to hand over your details they would but I don't recall any case like this.

Most of the hosts offer a free service as well with all the completion out free is good enough for me.

rapidshare is just one of the free hosts and as its not P2P you aren't dishing your IP out so freely.

downloader apps can help with the downloading see Jdownloader & MiPony

a lot of sites these days add free host names to their sites to get traffic :(

but there is still plenty of content out there on google give it a try

I have a little magic code I use

Code: [Select]
("mirrorcreator.com/files/*"|"mir.cr/"|"rapidspread.com/file.jsp?id="|"massmirror.com/"|"qooy.com/files/*/"|"megaupload.com/"|"x7.to/*/*"|"filesonic.com/file/*"|"fileserve.com/file/*"|"filefactory.com/file/*"|"rapidshare.com/files/*/"|"rapidshare.de/files/*/"|"wupload.com/file/*"|"hotfile.com/dl/*/*"|"bitshare.com/files/*/*"|"uploadstation.com/file/*"|"d01.megashares.com/dl/*/*"|"mediafire.com/?"|"easy-share.com/"|"netload.in/*/"|"depositfiles.com/*/files/"|"letitbit.net/download/*/*"|"badongo.com/file/"|"zshare.net/*/*/"|"uploadline.com/*/*"|"sendspace.com/file/*"|"flyupload.com/get?fid=*"|"2xupload.de/file/*/"|"load.to/*/"|"ul.to/*"|"ifolder.ru/*"|"filegu.ru/f/*/*"|"uploadrack.com/*/*")
type what you want into google then add the code

so if you want last nights jay leno just google
Code: [Select]
Jay Leno 2011.06.24 ("mirrorcreator.com/files/*"|"mir.cr/"|"rapidspread.com/file.jsp?id="|"massmirror.com/"|"qooy.com/files/*/"|"megaupload.com/"|"x7.to/*/*"|"filesonic.com/file/*"|"fileserve.com/file/*"|"filefactory.com/file/*"|"rapidshare.com/files/*/"|"rapidshare.de/files/*/"|"wupload.com/file/*"|"hotfile.com/dl/*/*"|"bitshare.com/files/*/*"|"uploadstation.com/file/*"|"d01.megashares.com/dl/*/*"|"mediafire.com/?"|"easy-share.com/"|"netload.in/*/"|"depositfiles.com/*/files/"|"letitbit.net/download/*/*"|"badongo.com/file/"|"zshare.net/*/*/"|"uploadline.com/*/*"|"sendspace.com/file/*"|"flyupload.com/get?fid=*"|"2xupload.de/file/*/"|"load.to/*/"|"ul.to/*"|"ifolder.ru/*"|"filegu.ru/f/*/*"|"uploadrack.com/*/*")
if you search for things like that you will get a warning on google at the bottom of the search results.
