Box.net - 1GB Of Free Online Storage


Box.net is a service that allows you to have 1GB of free online storage without ads. You can have 5GB for $5 a month or 15GB for $10 month. The only limitations of the free account are:
* no public sharing. You can share files only with other Box.net users. You don't get a public direct link to your files, only a placeholder page.
* 10MB file size limit.
* no phone support.

Box.net has a simple interface, works from most browsers, lets you upload multiple files at once and synchronizes your files. You can use a SSL connection to secure your transfers. Files can have tags and can be searched by name.

You can use the online storage from Box.net or from Goowy, a "web operating system" that features a mail client, IM, RSS reader and a slick calendar. Netvibes and other personalized homepages also let you access your files. Box.net has even a Firefox extension.
