Selamat Tinggal Divshare

Terhitung sejak tanggal 12 Februari 2008 layanan upload Gratis dari Divshare akan dihentikan untuk wilayah China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia dan Mongolia. Jadi Untuk selanjutnya File-file kami yang ada di divshare akan segera dipindahkan ke layanan gratis yang lain. Mohon maaf atas ketidak nyamanan rekan-rekan akan hal ini.

Berikut pernyataan Resmi yang diambil dari website Divshare:

Today we have an announcement that will affect many of our users in China and Southeast Asia, as well as users whose files receive traffic from this part of the world. As of Tuesday, February 12, files hosted in free DivShare accounts will no longer be accessible to visitors in this region. Premium users will not be affected the by this change, and current users in this region will always be able to access their own files. No files will be deleted.

The affected countries are: China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Mongolia.

Downloaders: If you are in these countries, you will be able to download any file from any uploader if you have a premium account.

Existing Free Members: Starting Feb. 12, files in free accounts will not be accessible from the above countries unless the downloader has a premium account. If you live in one of these countries and are already a member, you will still have access to the files in your free account. All visitors from other countries will still have access to your files. If you would like to continue to serve downloads to China and Southeast Asia, an upgrade will allow you to do so.

Upgrading: We have created a new premium account, DivShare Basic, for members in the above countries. The Basic plan includes 5 GB of storage and 50 GB of downloads per month for just $3.95 per month. Current free members in China and Southeast Asia will be able to switch to Basic premium plans and continue to serve files to visitors anywhere in the world. New members from this region will only have the option to sign up for Basic or one of the other premium plans.

Why the change? Our free accounts are supported by advertising, and unfortunately the online advertising market in China and Southeast Asia is much weaker than in other parts of the world. We’re still proud to offer our storage and sharing services to users in this region, but we ask that they join us as premium rather than ad-supported members.

If you have any questions or are interested in a custom premium account, let us know. Thanks for being a part of DivShare!
