Looking to upload all your files on the cloud server but don’t want to pay a monthly or yearly fee? Consider yourself lucky, as Box.com is offering free 50GB of cloud space to every new user. If you haven’t signed up at Box.com yet, then this is the right time to do so.
Only users registering through a special landing page will be able to receive this massive storage space. From the signup URL, it is obvious that Dell collaborated with Box to bring this exclusive deal. The sign up page has “Get 50GB of Box FREE for Life & 50GB for Coworkers or Friends” message written in fine prints.
Don’t worry, there have been several thousands of signups from non-Dell users. Box has run similar promotions last month as well. And it looks like this is yet another deliberate attempt from Box to attract more new users.
Whatever the reason is, you will be benefited by choosing Box — they are a well-known name in the cloud industry, and it takes only a couple of minutes to signup!
To get started, simply visit this page and fill in your details. Existing users who have signed up last week received 25GB space, but you will get 50GB storage space when you sign up through this special page.
It’s not only about storing the files. With Box, you can also share your files with friends and family. Once the files or folders are uploaded, you will receive a unique URL. Share this URL privately or make it public. There’s a catch though — the monthly shared bandwidth should not exceed more than 10GB.
Another catch, and probably one that will shoo away a lot of users, is the limit on the file size. A file cannot be larger than 250MB. So if you are planning to use this 50GB storage space to upload and host large files like movies or videos, then consider splitting them into smaller parts — it’s tedious, but do we have any other option?
