Now that Megaupload, the popular files hosting website associated with the internet, has been closed, its fans are at a loss for obvious reasons. But there is no need to despair if you are one of the the millions of visitors who used the website which allowed streaming of files on Megavideo. It's time for the competitors of Megaupload to make a killing. These are also file hosting and sharing websites, which provide a platform for users to upload and use their documents on the internet. These documents include movies, music and other video files. Some of the competitors available over the internet are RapidShare.com, FileFactory.com, UploadBox.com, MediaFire.com, MixtureCloud.com, etc.
