FAQ

What is dFile?

Have a file you want to save? This is a very simple solution to share large files for free online, via a direct link. No Login/Account required. Just Upload Lol.
You can upload as much as you want with a maximum file size of 1GB per file.

How long will you host my file?

This depends. When our storage is full, usually a few weeks. But we garbage collect our repo once in a while. So don't see this as a safe place to host your family pics, if you want them stored forever. If your file uses alot and frequent bandwidth then it will be hosted for alot longer, maybe even forever.

What content is allowed?

Anything that you are legally allowed to upload in Germany (EU). This restricts content such as:
-Illegal files (e. g. child pornography or terrorist videos)
-Copyright protected files
-Files that disregard the rights of others.

Do you keep logs of uploaded content?

Yes, it is the only way we can prevent abuse.

Can you remove [this] content?

Since we use IPFS, we can only remove the content from our nodes. We will do so if you request a removal under the following email. [email protected]

What is IPFS?

In a nutshell, IPFS is a file system on the internet that allows any file to stay permanently on the web. This doesn't mean that the file will stay on the internet forever, just that it can not be modified or changed in any way and that it has a hash with that you can access it, this hash won't ever change. More Information on IPFS

What Software/Technology do you use?

We use a custom script for Node.js for our upload Nodes. And IPFS as a protocol when dealing with files.

Do you have a IPFS gateway?

No, but if this project grows, we will definitely plan to create one. We would have to setup public funding for that though, as we can't afford those servers.

I love your Service, how do I donate?

Currently, we are not accepting any donations. We don't want to feel obligated to run this service. We still need to test alot of features and IPFS is still very unstable. So thats why we can't garuntee uptime. We will setup donations for our public IPFS gateway, if there is interest.
