News from RapidShare- Rapids system[updated]
Rapidshare is one of Famous online hosting website . It is World 36th most visited website according to Alexa. The website provides users to upload contents like Software, documents, PDF, movies, music etc. I guess it is right to say, the website is really great one to download illegal stuffs :P and so they recently had a Copyright Lawsuit against them by Perfect 10 , a adult entertainment company. Although Rapidshare had won in the court , they have made serious changes to their system. RapidPoints and RapidDonation has been discontinued from June 18. Previously they discontinued RapidPoint for Rewards like Pen drive, T shirts etc.
Today , they had made an announcement about the new RapidShare system that will be implemented from 29 June. First of all , all the existing collector account will be upgraded to Premium account for free and you will be able to download as Premium using a new currency called Rapids .
There are 5 types of Premium account namely RapidSmall, RapidMedium , RapidBig, RapidSupersize , RapidBusiness that you can use depending on your needs. You can change between different types of account on daily basis .You can know more about this , by visiting the link http://rapidshare.com/news.html
If you have Free and Premium RapidPoints , you can exchange to get Rapids . You can exchange 5000 Free and 5000 Premium points to 600 Rapids. You can do this upto 6000 Rapids. If you convert 5000 Free + 5000 Premium RapidPoints and you download an average of 1 GB a day , then you can use it for nearly 5 months.
- 5000 Free+ 5000 Premium RapidPoints = 600 Rapids
- 600 / 4* Rapids per day = 150 days (nearly 5 months)—- * 4 Rapids corresponds to RapidSmall which has 1GB download limit.
I think this will also prevent the use of creating a new Premium account by using Rapids in one account and being sold in ebay or other forums. They had also mentioned Currently , i have 26K Free and 24K Premium RapidPoints worth 25Euro (31USD) , don’t know what to do with it? should I convert to Premium or wait for some days to have any special conversion from RapidShare. More information on this will be available on 29, June.
On 6th July, there was a new update from Rapidshare and this news was sent to all Rapidshare user including me :)
According to it, they are shifting the System to 99 Rapids for 30 days with 30 GB of Traffic(downloads) and 10GB for your files storage . The changes was due to the feedback got from the site users. For every additional 1GB file storage , you need to pay 2 Rapids/month and for Traffic download , you can get 5GB for 14 Rapids. The good thing about this the unused Traffic can be used for the next month.
