News Drops

We keep on improving 4shared in order to maintain the best possible performance. We added a few new features last night and would like to keep you updated.

First, we decided to separate some settings which previously could be found on ‘My account’ page. If you click the ‘My Account’ icon now, you will be able to view your account general info, statistics, affiliate program details and upgrade your account. All other settings and preferences for your account from now on are to be adjusted on ‘Settings’ page. To change your preferences for password, themes, comments and public profile, please click the ‘Settings’ icon on your account toolbar.

Second, we added new ‘Subdomains’ tab to ‘Settings’ page. On this tab you can easily figure out how many subdomains you currently use and folders names where to subdomains are assigned. This is especially useful for our premium users now when 100 subdomain names are availabe with our new ‘Premium’ subscription. We are confident that you will be delightfully surprised when you see our latest innovations as to the feature. And of course we are sure this is another reason for our free users to consider upgrading their account to ‘Premium’.

We invite you to play around with the new features and see how things work. Any feedback or ideas on the improvements would be appreciated.

New Web Host Provider

We are proud to announce that 4shared keeps on growing. Due to the massive growth of 4shared, we had to make some changes to avoid performance problems in the future. In an effort to provide you with the best possible service we have moved our site to a new hosting provider WebaZilla that can accomodate our quickly expanding bandwith requirements. Not only this means more resources available for the site and the systems we run but also better download speed and quality for our users. In a nutshell, this will save time for our users and ensure stable 4shared performance.

As always, please let us know if there is something we can do to make this even better.

‘Add to my account’ option has been modified!

24 / 02 / 2009

We have introduced an ‘Add to my account’ option on file download pages recently. This feature lets you add a file to your virtual drive in no time. That is, in case a user would like to download a file and then upload it to his/her virtual drive, now he/she can do that without downloading file to his/her computer. However, this action can be accomplished only for the files which are allowed to be downloaded by their publisher.

Some users of our service requested improvement for the feature and we did take this into account. So, the option has been modified a bit. File publishers now can decide whether they want this feature to be available on file download pages. In other words, you can adjust settings for your account in a way that will disable the ‘Add to my account’ on your files’ option download pages.

In case you would like to disable the option, please
1. log into your account;
2. click on the ‘My account’ icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen;
3. get to the ‘Settings’ tab;
4. clear the ‘Allow others to add my files to their accounts’ checkbox
5. click on the ‘Save changes’ button on the bottom.

We would like to say ‘Thanks a bunch’ to all our users who gave us their feedback concerning the new feature. We really appreciate your desire to make our service better!
