List Of Working - Non Working File Hosts

Discussion in 'Affiliate Programs' started by Just A Wag, Jan 23, 2012.

    Well since the file hosting / affiliate scene is in utter turmoil right now, I thought it would be good to have a running list of what's working and what's not.
    Please add the hosts you know - if they are working or not and if they still have a paying affiliate program. I will update the following lists with your info.
    SEMrush

    Not Working:

    Megaupload - gone (to jail I think)
    Filesonic - gone (site still works but sharing disabled - affiliate earnings missing presumed stolen - some accounts terminated)
    Filejungle - gone (site still works but sharing disabled)
    Fileserve - gone (site still works but sharing disabled - many accounts also terminated - affiliate earnings missing presumed burried in a field somewhere)
    Groovefile - gone (site fails to load)
    Filebeep - gone (site fails to load)
    247Upload - gone (site fails to load)
    Wupload - gone (site still works but affilitate system disabled)
    Duckload - gone (to jail I think)
    Filepost - closed affiliate program - have paid at least some affiliates
    Uploading.com - Gone as of midnight tonight (at least they told us)
    Sharedragon - gone
    Mediafire - closed affiliate program (site still working)
    Eatbytes - gone
    FileForge - Gone
    Hotfile - gone
    Zupload - gone
    4shared - closed affiliate program - site still works
    Glumbouploads - closed affiliate program - site still works
    Videozer - gone
    Vdeobb - gone
    Letitbit - seems to have closed it's affiliate program - site still working





    Working:

    Filefactory - seems ok but ru not working (probably under severe strain !)
    Netload - working as far as I can tell
    File4sharing - working but a total waste of space
    Bitshare - working but under heavy traffic - sometimes won't load first try
    Sharerun - working as far as I can tell
    Rapidshare - working but no paying affiliate plan - can earn 'points'
    Oron - working but people are nervouse
    Easybytez - working as far as I can tell
    Bulletupload - working as far as I can tell
    Turbobit - working right now but under heavy traffic so speeds are slow
    FileTram - working as far as I can tell
    Extabit - working as far as I can tell
    Depositfiles - working as far as I can tell
    Megashares - working as far as I can tell but affiliate program sucks
    Userporn - working but very low rates for affiliates. [UPDATE] Admin no longer responding - users reporting their files being deleted.


    I am not recommending any particular host from the above list, but I do advise you check out any host properly before committing your time and effort.

    I use a small site named "CRAMIT.IN" and it is not counting download from today(23rd Jan 2012). They may have stopped affiliate business.

    Soon, they'll all be gone or closing their affiliate program for their protection.

    Alex17 @ You did a good short listing...Great review.

    Almost all file host are closing affiliate program because most of them are afraid of being charged for Money Laundering & some smart pants file host are taking it as an opportunity to rip off/scam uploader (affiliates).

    ^^Cheers!

    All filehosts will die within a week or 2... Just the free one's will stay!

    Better wait before uploading anything.

    When did Mediafire have an affiliate program?

    All those which paid money for uploads will either close or will stop affiliate program. Others will continue to operate. At least, that is what I think.

    There is no guarantee the affiliate programs of the existing sites will remain open
