Rapidshare - i guess the name says it all.... RapidShare is a One-click hosting site that operates from Germany and is financed by the subscriptions of paying users. It also claims to be the world's largest in its scope.

It is a free service, and any user can upload files of unlimited size without registration. The user is then supplied with a unique URL, which locates the file and enables anyone with whom the uploader shares it to download the file. Free downloaders are forced to wait for certain time according to the size of the file they are about to download. moreover Rapidshare also gives us a warning notice that our files may get deleted if its not being downloaded by anyone for atleast 45 days. please notice the word 'may' mentioned there....

Rapidshare also gives you another option called Premium user, a paying service by which you get a lot of benefit like resuming broken downloads, no need to wait to download files, no deletion of files even after 45 days of no download, allows usage of download managers etc.

no atul, limewire is a p2p file sharing program. and rapidshare is a normal server which allows file download and upload.

The major difference is in where files are stored and who responds to user requests...

in limewire u download the files from any normal person who uses internet and shares files stored in his system.

in rapidshare you upload the files to a centralised dedicated server and then download.
