A Free File hosting platform

Posted 19 August 2012 - 09:21 AM

Hey guys i am currently developing a free File Sharing platform similar to Mediafire and DropBox but it will be 100% free for anyone to use and everyone will receive free unlimited storage with no restrictions.
I need a good solid name to build it upon because the brand name is what will define the software and i need a catchy name that people will remember.
For example "Instagram" is a really unique name and is very easy to remember so i need something like that.
Please leave your suggestions for a good name for a software like this down below.
The person who will be responsible for the name that i will chose will get credit in the credits section of the software and the website.
Thank You!
Please help me out with this because at the end of the day i will not receive any profits from this project and i am doing this to help everyone who cannot afford expensive file storage plans :)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Random business question - how will this sustain itself then? Storage costs someone, somewhere, eventually. The hardware, software account management, and bandwidth are never free. Is this going to be operating against you at a huge deficit, or what exactly?

As it is just think of fun storage words.. like "sto.re" or "box.it".

Well basically i was thinking of introducing a ad based system such as a pay per click or something along those lines, and use the ad revenue to pay for everything you stated above such as bandwidth etc.
What is your opinion on this?
