We offer ad-financed free and affordable premium online storage/remote backup capacity, plus sophisticated uploading and downloading tools.

Everyone. Millions of people from all walks of life in over 250 countries and territories. Students, professional business people, moms, dads, doctors, plumbers, insurance salesmen, mortgage brokers, you name it.
Whenever you need to send a file that is too large for e-mail, UploadSea can help. If you need secure remote storage capacity for off-site backups, UploadSea offers solutions for you. If you want to access personal data from a variety of computers and don't want to carry around a USB stick, UploadSea is a perfect way of doing so. If your bandwidth demands exceed what your regular web hoster is capable of delivering, you can distribute your digital merchandise using UploadSea's powerful global server network. If you are a shareware author or blogger providing popular content to the world, our UploadSea Rewards program will enable you to profit from people downloading your files.
While you can use any of the major download managers, we recommend that you use UploadSea? Manager instead. It is a generic download manager and accelerator, but contains additional functionality to take advantage of UploadSea's special features, such as unattended automated batch downloading of link lists, including folder links. This is especially true if you own a UploadSea Premium account.
I received a UploadSea link and clicked on it, but I don't see a download link. Help!
Unregistered Members benefits?
If you do not have a UploadSea Premium account, certain restrictions may prevent you from downloading: We do not allow more than one concurrent download per IP address and also limit the amount of data you can download from our servers within a certain time span. If you share your IP address with other UploadSea users (e.g. because your ISP uses proxies or NAT), you may be sharing these limitations with them.
Can I browse your huge file archive?
No. File transmissions through UploadSea are private and confidential in nature. It is therefore impossible to download files that you do not know the links for. However, if you purchase a UploadSea Premium Account, we will give you access to our top 100 public files.
Why is my download slow?
Depending on your connectivity to our server network, throughput may be limited and slower than what you expect. You may wish to install our Internet Explorer toolbar or our groundbreaking Mega Manager client software for improved download speed and extended features such as batch downloading and the ability to resume interrupted downloads.
How often can my files be downloaded from UploadSea?
There is no limit! And even better: The more downloads your files get, the more you can earn through our UploadSea program.
How long does UploadSea store my files?
Your files will be stored forever as long as you are a premium member. If you are a registered user without premium status, your files will be stored until at least 90 days after their last download. A file that was uploaded anonymously (that is not owned by any UploadSeauser) will be deleted no sooner than 21 days after the last time it was downloaded.
Should I rely on UploadSea as the only place to store my vital files?
No! It is good practice to always keep more than one backup of any file you cannot afford to lose. Although we are going to great lengths to ensure the long-term integrity and availability of your data, there is always a (very slim) chance of a loss - e.g. because of natural disasters affecting our data centers or someone reporting and acceptable use policy violation affecting your files or files appearing in their context. We take no responsibility for the long-term availability of your data!
What is the maximum file size I can upload?
If you'd like your file to be downloadable by everyone, make sure not to exceed the limit of 1024 MB. Larger files can only be downloaded by premium users.
Can I upload more than one file at a time?
Sure! You can either open multiple upload windows or use the multi file uploader from the main page. For improved upload performance and comfort, we recommend using our toolbar or the UploadSea Manager instead of uploading from your web browser.
Where do I see the link of my uploaded file?
You will see it in the center of the page once your upload is completed. If you selected multiple files for uploading, you will receive multiple download links. If you upload files frequently, you may wish to sign up for your personal online storage account. It's free, and it allows you to comfortably manage your file portfolio in our innovative file manager.
Can I delete my uploaded files?
Sure you can! If you enter your e-mail address when uploading a file, we will automatically e-mail you two links: a link to download the file, and your private delete link. If you have a free online storage account, you will be able to view and delete your files from within your personal file manager. If you uploaded a file without supplying your e-mail address and without being logged on, you cannot delete it.
What is a file folder?
A file folder combines multiple UploadSea download links into one file folder link. You can create file folders from within your file manager. You can create as many file folders as you want, and you can copy the same file into multiple file folders. The advantage of file folders is that you can easily share multiple files with just one link. Also, you can link check the folder link in UploadSea Manager to see the status of the files it contains and download all of them with a single click of a mouse button.
What is the advantage of a UploadSea Premium account?
You get a lot of extra features for a very low flat fee - starting at EUR 9.99 per month: Highest download priority and bandwidth, unlimited downloading (no daily limits, no more annoying "Download limit exceeded" messages), no waiting before a download starts, direct downloads, access to files larger than 1024 megabyes, unlimited lifetime of the files in your account throughout the validity period of your premium status, dramatically increased capacity of your file portfolio, and many more.
I have purchased a premium account through PayPal or Moneybookers - why have I not received my login and password yet?
As soon as your payment for a premium account clears, we will send a confirmation e-mail to your registered UploadSea e-mail address as well as to the e-mail address the payment was made from in case it is different. Please check both e-mail account - including spam folders! If you really cannot find our e-mail, we will be happy to resend it to you. You can also check the status of your payment in your account page's payment history section. Note that certain types of payments (especially bank collection/PayPal "eChecks") may take up to fourteen days to complete. Use your PayPal/Moneybookers balance or your credit card to minimize that risk.
PayPal doesn't list my country or declines my credit card. What do I do?
Use one of our alternate payment providers, such as Moneybookers.
I bought a UploadSea Premium account, but my speed is still lower than my Internet connection's bandwidth?
If your ISP's connectivity to us (packet latency and loss rate) is bad, your transfer speed will suffer even if you have a premium account. In this case, using a download accelerator will speed up your download dramatically. Install UploadSea Manager and enjoy the ride!
What is a Lifetime Platinum account?
A lifetime platinum account is a premium account that never expires. You pay a one-time fee $150 and enjoy the full range of premium benefits for the rest of your life. Lifetime Platinum accounts are personal,.
What is the "direct download" option in "My account"?
If you have this feature enabled (premium only), download links from UploadSea will redirect to the actual file download automatically without you having to visit the download page. For more convenience while downloading, you can also use the batch download feature in UploadSea Manager, which even supports file folders.
I have heard that I can earn premium status and cash from people downloading my files. Is that true?
Yes, Every qualifying download of one of your files will earn you a reward point. When you have reached a certain number of points, you can redeem them for premium status or even cash. If you have popular content that you have the rights to distribute, this program is for you. If you are trying to earn money by posting files that infringe on the rights of others, forget about it. You will be disqualified.
I have earned a lot of points, what can I do with them?
You can either wait until you have earned even more points, or redeem some for one of our awards:
What is a qualifying download? How do you count the downloads I earned?
Only one download per IP per day per file will be counted. Downloads from certain countries do not count We reserve the right to exclude downloads from certain IP addresses from counting towards your rewards earnings if we detect fraudulent activitiy.
What are reward points?
We give reward points for downloads of your files. The more downloads your files get, the more points you will make. You can redeem your points for free premium services or real money. For more information, visit our rewards page.
I have made a rewards redemption. When and how will I receive my money?
We will send your rewards payment through PayPal within 10 working days.
