What Is Zippyshare.com?

Zippyshare (zippyshare.com) is a file-sharing website. Zippyshare is free to use for an unlimited number of files up to the size of 500MB each. Zippyshare allows you to upload files without creating a user account, which is unique for file-sharing sites. Zippyshare also offers unlimited bandwidth for downloading files; however, a file is automatically deleted if it hasn’t received any downloads for 30 days.

Zippyshare offers some features few other file-sharing sites do; however, the fact that a file is automatically deleted after 30 days is the drawback. Many files are important for the internet and its people and don’t necessarily get views every 30 days, making it not suitable for many people looking for cloud storage. Nevertheless, its unique package of features will be suitable for some people. Zippyshare can offer free storage space because ads are sponsoring the links.
