UniBytes is a file sharing and data storage service with an orange lizard as the company logo. It offers free upload of files, such as music, videos, documents or other types of data and also download, not only from download links shared by friends or colleagues, but also popular files made public, that can be found quickly on the home page. The main page also offers fast upload via drag and drop into a specialized box or by selecting files from the computer. Upon uploading a file, the website generates a download link, that can be shared with anyone by simply copy pasting it through messenger or any other way. A delete link is also provided. By opening it, the file is automatically deleted from the system. The uploaded files stay in the online storage for time periods based on their popularity: 120 days starting from the day of the last download. Users registered as webmasters are able to also upload via FTP and Remote Upload. There are no limits on the amount of uploaded files or on the number of downloads, the only limit is on file size, which is 2 GB. Larger files have to be uploaded part by part by breaking them down into archives. The free services are however rather slow and the user has to expect waiting times before uploads and downloads. To safe time, it is possible to sign up for a premium membership. With premium the services start instantly, there are no annoying ads throughout and there are no limits on speed, allowing the user to upload and download with the full speed potential of their internet provider.
