The team of developers who created Netkups by incorporating two file-sharing platforms (cyberlockers and BitTorrent) is sure that this new hybrid platform will prove to be a very interesting and pleasant surprise for both website administrators and users.
In fact, BitTorrent portals and cyberlocker file-hosters do share some similarities – for example, a huge number of users. Both of them also attract the attention of the creative industry. Nevertheless, everything else is different. This will change soon thanks to Netkups, which combines both technologies, letting people to upload files and share them via direct links and torrents.
Adrian, Netkups founder, assured that the hybrid model is actually a win-win situation. In this case, they are able to save on bandwidth charges and enable a faster growth, while the developers can guarantee that the file is seeded by them as long as it’s downloadable. In the meantime, Internet users are able to enjoy the benefits of torrent files and download as much content as they want by using both part of their bandwidth and bandwidth from other users.
Netkups doesn’t offer a built-in search engine. However, it lets everyone to upload files of up to 1 GB (free of charge), and share them with other users or keep them private. File-sharing is possible at a speed of maximum 300 KBs. The application also makes a torrent file that can be shared and downloaded without speed limits. Everything is for free.
Talking about the copyright infringement, the policy of the new platform is very strict. The developers realize that they’d have been fools not to worry about that issue. So they have a very serious DMCA policy and a serious legal agreement as well. Considering this, the developers will be watching out for censorship and abuses of any kind.
Although people might not like to see some things published, it doesn’t have to mean that all files should be deleted. Netkups’ developers claim they care about everyone’s rights – not only users, and not only copyright owners. The Netkups’ founder has clarified the company’s stance to copyright violation in such way.
Of course, there is a paid premium package which offers a number of benefits, including 2GB upload size, simultaneous downloads, absence of advertisements, but you can also use Netkups for free.
