Tinyload is a web service that enables you to upload files to multiple file hosters on the Internet. The service limits individual files to 100 Megabyte which you can upload to a maximum of twelve file hosters at once. The main advantage of the service that TinyLoad provides is that you can use it to create backups automatically by uploading files to multiple online hosting companies at once. This can also be useful for distribution purposes as some hosters impose traffic limits on uploads.
Several well known file hosting services, such as Rapidshare, Divshare and Megaupload, are selectable on the website of the upload service. The file has to be uploaded only once by you, the actual distribution is then handled by the service directly. That's advantageous as you only need to upload the file once, but also means that it may take a while before the files become available on the selected hosting sites.
A unique url is created during each upload that lists the links to the files on the various file hosting websites. This is ideal for posting at Twitter or Instant Messengers.
Tinyload is also accessible through a bookmarklet which comes in handy when something needs to be quickly uploaded.
Update: Tinyload is no longer available. The website displays a parked page full of advertisement now. I suggest you use an alternative service such as Mirror Creator which offers a similar feature. You can select up to twelve hosting sites that you can upload files to. Among the supported hosters are popular services such as Rapidgator, Bayfiles, Depositfiles, UploadedTo or Minus.
Files up to a size of 400 Megabyte can be uploaded to Mirror Creator. The service has another interesting feature as you can optionally set a password for your upload to protect the file from unauthorized access.Advertisement
