Earning on file hostings in 2022


Earning on file hostings. Quick manual for beginners in moneymakingI guess that every Internet user has ever downloaded files from file hostings such as Depositfiles, Rapidshare, Hotfile, Letitbit, Uploading, Sharingmatrix, Oron and others. Many users even know that on file hostings they can earn money. Some people even know that earnings can be quite big and impressive.
But, the thought about money making with file hostings comes to the mind of people very rarely. Though such thought may become in your head and it is even possible that you are registered in some of these file hostings, and even uploaded some files and posted links on them to 1-2 forums. If more of this matter is not matter, then your earnings are slightly different from zero. But if you do not know anything about this kind of Internet money-making or you’d like to know more about business with file hostings then let me introduce it to you.

There are such internet services called file hostings, which pay money for downloading the files that you uploaded on their servers. Suppose, you have an interesting file. You upload it to the server of file hosting and get a link to it, then post this link to various web pages such as forums, news pages, XXX pages, warez pages, your own pages, and blogs. People download your file and you receive per thousand downloads a certain sum of money, ranging from 5 to 1000 dollars, depending on the quality of traffic and the conditions under which you are working with file hosting. This money you can order a payout to your purse in WebMoney, PayPal, or Epassporte without any additional charges.

Why file hostings pay you?

You probably think why the owners of file hostings pay you such big money? It’s simple. In fact, they give you only a tiny part of their earnings. The files, uploaded by you, people download, but they download them not on direct links, during the downloading process they have to view advertising, or to escape this they need to buy Gold or Premium accounts (the privileged conditions for downloading from these servers). People or advertisers pay to file hostings, and they share with newsmakers, posters, or webmasters – with you, thanking you in such a way for sharing your links on the files and bringing visitors to this file hosting for downloading files and viewing advertising. In other words, you work like a promoter for file hostings.
I recommend you try for money-making some file hostings. All hostings are officially registered, reliable, and regularly pay. It makes sense to sign up immediately at all, but when you start to post news(with your links for downloading) you may write links or mirrors only to the 4-5 file hostings, depending on the requirements admins of the site, the size of your file, the target audience, the minimum payment. For example, Letitbit does not pay for downloads of files smaller than 5 Mb. For files with a size of more than 200 MB, you can get good income using SharingMatrix(Filesonic), Hotfile, DepositFiles, and Rapidshare. After working with them for a couple of months, you can choose which of these file hostings and in what combination would be a priority for you.
By the way, I have an intensive free bonus for my referrals. If you read this article till the end you can know what is in this referral bonus. Besides this, at my site, you may find a regularly updated free review of withdrawable forex bonuses without deposit, so potentially you may get some profit from trading on forex or CFD markets. Do not lose this option to start your trading with free forex bonuses as an alternative to earning from file downloads. Believe me, it’s a more stable and reliable way of online moneymaking.

Now look at the process of this kind of earning!!!
Let’s start step by step.

Where you may take the interesting file?

If you do not have anything interesting on your computer, go to any file portal or torrent, choose 1-2 recently published files, download, upload them on your file hosting, and post your links on other file portals, your sites, or different forums.

Where may I get a description of the file and the screenshot?

Turn on your brains, I think the difficulties should not appear.

How to upload a file to file hosting?

To start you should “register”. I offer to register on several file hostings which will pay you, and on RapidShare (you do not get money from it, but many file portals require this file hosting). You need to register on several file hostings because most file portals require the presence of several mirrors(links)( do not forget about it, otherwise admin removes your posts and you can even be banned ). Then register on image hosting – the server, allowing you to store your pictures and screenshots on it, it will overwhelm the picture. Although, I would like to draw your attention to the fact that many news portals don’t like this and require you to upload your screenshots to their server. This is a very important moment when you post news, non-observance of which admins remove your posts.
Then everything is simple, go to the home page, click “Browse”, select the file, and forward!
By the way, on Letitbit, SharingMatrix, Hotfile, Depositfiles, and Rapidshare you can use remote upload of your files, saving your time and traffic.

How to publish links on your file on portals that enable you to place your posts?

This is the most difficult step, I guess. No, of course, posting your news on the portal is a 5 minutes business, but our aim is not simply posting your news with links on the pages, but we’d like to get downloads through our links and more downloads is better. Here let’s begin the real work:
– First, you need to post news on popular websites, as well as the more visitors these sites have, the more likely it is that your posts work on downloading your files. But if the website is more popular, so it has higher requirements for content and design news.
– Secondly, prepare the news correctly and beautifully, so that the person, who saw them, wish to download your file, rather than click on the next page of the site.
– Third, always before adding news to a website, please read the rules for adding the news on this website, because most sites have their own rules, otherwise you may simply be banned to publish.
Examples of designing the news there are almost typical on all sites, and the majority of them use the same engine, so having written the news for one site, you can simply copy it to others. A brief list of such websites on the Internet can be viewed here. Register and go ahead – to master the profession of journalist. After publishing several posts on many websites, make the analysis, from what sites were the biggest number of downloads on your links. In the end, leave the 40-50 most popular sites for work and publish your news on them.
You can also use a special script DLE NEWS ADDER 6.0 for automatic sending and posting news, which itself adds to a large number of websites. But experience shows that its effectiveness is not very high. Popular websites are protected from automatic posting, and posting on websites with an attendance of 10 people a day you have not a lot of earnings. There are many other special software to automate news posting, for example, – the program ADD NEWS 2.2. The cost of a license is $15.
In any case, the choice is always yours – spend 1,5-2 hours a day, posting news manually, or run automatic posting and go about your business. I propose to begin to take for start web sites RuNet base. In the future, you leave for yourself from the base the most popular sites or updated it with new sites.
With my referrals from Depositfiles, Sharingmatrix, Hotfile, Uploading, and Letitbit which earned at least $10 I will share my top base of popular porno forums. With this forum’s base you can easily increase your earnings in 4-5 times.
By the way, let me give a couple of tips for beginners:
1) Do not use from the beginning software for automatic posting. Try to post manually. Create a file in Excel, in which you can count posted news, base of web sites, your earnings from different kinds of files, and feedback from your posting. After posting of your news on web site go in 2-3 days to web sites from your base, check which sites published your news normally or removed it, analyze the level of interest to your files (number of hits and downloads from the each website), enter the statistics in your file. After a couple of weeks and posting of 5-10 news, you can do for yourself a conclusion on what sites and what the best way to post your files for download. Don’t recommend to post more than 2 news on each web site per day. As the famous proverb goes “go slowly – live longer”. Simply understand, administrators of web sites viewing such activity usually removed such news and such large-scale beginning posters.
2) You should not lose belief, not seeing quick money earning from your files in the first days of work. This is the standard error that beginners do. People expect from the first days of work getting big money. From my personal experience I would say that my first couple of cents appeared on my account in file hosting only on the fifth day of the start of my work. Working so at least a month and having experience in the design and posting of news with your links, you can already direct your view on the special software or think about increasing downloads via creating your web site with your links.

And, finally, let’s count what you can earn on file hostings?

If you’ll do all correctly and post good news, then 1000 downloads from one file – this is not the limit, but, of course, it will not be for 1 day, and probably not even for 1 month. In one day, without overworking, you can publish about 5-10 news with your links on 5-10 files. You can get most downloads on the following kinds of files: pictures and video XXX(files for adults 18+), new movies, new versions of software, new games, wallpapers of celebrities, and music. As a result, after 2-3 months of work when you upload on file hostings and publish about 250 – 300 files, and if you earned on each uploaded file at least $10, it could be not a bad sum of money, but it all will take some time.
From the beginning, of course, during the first 3-4 months your money earning will grow gradually from 1-2 cents per day to about 5-100 dollars per day. If you hope to upload and post a couple of files at 10-20 sites and to receive $ 2000-3000 for them, I will disappoint you. Like with any business you must at least make some effort to start. Repeat again, from the beginning you should define your purpose, if you want to earn 10-20 dollars a month to cover costs on the Internet or you want to create a huge income of 3000-5000 dollars a month? Accordingly, your efforts will vary. To receive $20-$30 per month – it will be enough to upload and publish in the month about 10-15 files at 10-20 popular sites. To increase the income you need to increase volumes of uploading and posting. Do not forget that fortune favors the brave and clever!
The undoubted charm of this money earning is that even if after a few months you decide to quit this work, your files will be still downloaded, and going through some time in your account, you’ll be pleasantly surprised with its balance.
Try it!
Remember, that in addition to your luck, you need a little work!

P.S. Well, bad times have come. Main high-paying file hosts closed their affiliate programs or banned US IPs. Now, posters and webmasters earn on files less money if it was some time ago. Many people lost this source of earnings because of file hosts’ owners, who banned many affiliate accounts or removed thousands of files even not paying out a dime from account balance.

Is it possible to earn money from file downloads in 2024? I have not even thought about such a way of monetization. I think that people use torrents or stream services, mainly.

yes, there are some file services that are still paying for downloads. For example, Rapidgator.

Great job on your blog post about file hostings, which are still paying for downloads! The content was informative, and I appreciated the practical examples you provided. To delve further into this topic secrets of earning on file downloads.

Thank you for highlighting the potential risks and rewards associated with different money-making strategies. It’s important to have a balanced perspective when exploring opportunities.

You mad a good job. thanks for the great review

Such way of making money is still actual in 2022 or no?

Hello Mike,

Do you have some forums to upload my ebooks? Or other places to post my file hosting links?

Thank you, Great post!

Hey Mike, I need your help, I can be your refferal. I just need some advices. send me your skype, ICQ or something in E-mail.

my e-mail is: qindzi @ gmail.com

The simple truth about binary options which many of us do not know is the fact that it is mainly based on predictions. Without proper knowledge of what next can happen to the stock market, you are sure to lose your funds. That is why it is important to be tutored or mentored by a professional investor in binary options. During my weeks of being mentored, I’ve learnt much and also succeeding in trades and was able to recover my lost funds.

When will they solve this problem, don’t you know?

I hope

Hi Mike!

Don’t you know what’s happened with RG?
Few days ago they resumed accepting credit cards, at the time I had some premium sales again, but since then nothing again..

As I’ve heard they are in difficult situation with their billing company. They had to change it because of complaints of different fighters against files hosts. These fighters try to interrupt RG work by sending official complaints on them to their billing companies, hosting owners and so on. Goats!

Thank you very much for your article. :)


Hey man…….thanks for this great post….I am an ‘extreme’ beginner from the ‘other’ world. I wish to earn the basic minimum as I haven’t got any source to spend on the internet…..Please give some quick tips to start. Is it possible to open accounts on Paypal or other sites without revealing true info about yourself…..and as you know downloading via the filehosts as a free user from the ones mentioned above—really sucks……how can I get more clicks if I use mirrocreator sites?And last question—these filehosts they don’t reveal your IPs and all that for copyrights do they?

at alertpay or at webmoney you may open an account using fake info. at paypal, as I know, you may do it too, but you should use for verifiyng credit card. so, if you could open credit card without revealing true info about yourself then I guess that you may work with paypal.
limits during free download are aimed to push the user to buy premium filehost account. the main earnings people have at “pay-per-sale” plans. also, it’s better because you may earn more money not posting so much as if you work at “pay-per-download” plans.
about IP revealing. well, from my experience, I may say that filehosts can reveal all your information if you post CP or something similar. So, to be sure that your info will not be revealed by filehosts, you may use VPN service.

Hey Mike

What do you think of Crocko, UploadStation and FileJungle ?

And will we have the chance to see a review about these file hosts on your blog sooner or later ? :)

After Wupload quitting I decided to wait some time and to see how these new projects will work. So, now my main sources of income are sonic, filepost and filesmonster. After finishing my work at some projects I’ll try to make reviews of all new files hosts.
Or, may be, if somebody of my readers will do this review and I’ll post it.

First, i truly appreciate what u have done to help people here and thank you for your great info.

I am a newbie just started this business 2 months ago, recently I encountered my 71 files got deleted by filesonic due to copyright infringement overnight. I am shocked because some files are from different producers, countries and sources, how can they join force to file the DMCA report to filesonic? As our master, have u ever encountered such problem?
One thing concern me a lot is filesonic states they will terminate repeat infringers. Is that possible I will get banned from them even though I am premium?

Your assistance to this matter is vitally important, thanks again.

Well, see. When you earn on sharing your warez stuff, which was previously uploaded at files host, you make an illegal work. So, each files host has the right to ban or close your acc because in their rules they mentioned this possibility.
Of course, files hosts write that they will terminate repeat infringers. But, I know some cases of closing accounts due to simple copyright infringement. Of course, I have the same problem with mass files deleting. But, you have to define or you will risk and restore deleted files or you will not risk and not restore. Sometimes, they may ban some posters, sometimes they pretend that they don’t see such violation.
But, what I’d like to say one more time, files hosts may close your account even if you are not repeat infringer. They have this right from their rules, you are uploading different files that violate copyright laws and it’s enough for deleting.

Hello Mike,
I tried to join forumophilia. com, and got this message:

“Hi, we are sorry to inform you that we do not accept anonymous registrations at the moment.
As a result you need an Invitation Code to register. If you have an invitation passcode, you can enter it in the field below.
If you don’t have it you need to ask around and find a friend or a person who is a current member of Forumophilia so they can supply you with an invitation code.”

Does anyone here have a forumophilia.com “invitation code” that they can pass along? You can send it via email.

it costs $15

hey mike nice work buddy ! can u give a big list of warez forums for me to post my daily uploaded movies

Thank you for yor valuable suggestions, Mike.

Hello again!!

I earn on both(mailnly, on downloads), I upload less than 50 MB files, because, ORON does not calculate the file size. Unfortunately, I don’t know from what coutries I get traffic, I put only one forums, that is also listed in your forum list. it is *xbii where *is e. Pics and vids(adults) and unfortunatley, I am banned from it, however, trying to upload with new one.

Thank you.

Hi, San!
I understood. Well, of course, it’s important to know from where is your main downloaders, because many file hosts pay different rates for different countries. I thinkm, that you should try to use file host which pays all downloads from all countries. Among such hosts I knew only 2: Filesonic and Fileserve. Better rates are on Filesonic. But Fileserve has not bad rates too.
See, for files less than 50 Mb on Filesonic you could earn $1-$7 and on Fileserve $0.5-$3. So, more profitable to work with Filesonic, but last month they have temporary problems with FTP because of their August rebranding.
Well, all other files host pays download from measured list of countries, and their rates are not so attractive as on Filesonic and Fileserve.
If you are interested, so you may write on my blog posts about these filehosts and register on them. But, be attentive, that on Filesonic after registration you should chose your payment scheme from “pay-per-sale” and “pay-per-download”.
Why do you not post on other forums? P*rnbb, Suzy and other can give big number of downloads and sales.

Dear Mike,

I am already earning with Oron with desi videos[with short clips] enough money.

I would like to start another file hosting and very confusing… Could you please suggest me good one?


Do you earn on premium sales or downloads?
If you earn on downloads, then what the average size of your files and from what countries is your main traffic?

Thanks for sahring info with us, it’s really great article

Hello Mike,

I would like to know how to earn from wallpapers of celebrities, where to upload, where to post, and if possible, provide me example websites…


try avaxhome.ws and other all-themes warez forums such like these leecher.to, darkwarez.pl…

You forgot fileserve.com they pay $25 per 1K downloads :P

I didn’t forget it. But I tried to describe only file hostings which were checked by myself and from which I received payout. I see, that in the internet there are many different paying file hostings, but, as I said, I’d like to share my REAL experience with my blog readers and it’s quite difficult to try each new file hosting. When I will work on Fileserve a little and receive the payout, si I’ll make the post about it.
