OnionShare – Send Files, Host A Website & Chat Anonymously With One App!

Worst web host ever. EVER. – I’ve had many problems with this hosting service since I started, and had a 2 year contract. First, their customer service, billing service, and tech support are HORRIBLE. Even if you know what you’re doing. Second, they will suspend your site for using much CPU power at all, despite the fact that other hosts simply have better servers, so this isn’t a problem. You pay for their bad tech. Third, and this is the kicker, they actually REFUNDED my renewal (I felt, stupidly, that it was worth paying a little less, since they offered me a renewal at the same initial offer price) after “not being able” to process it (twice, both times following their directions, with different methods), and then tripled the cost. Turns out they just issued an incorrect renewal, and didn’t want to allow me to renew at that price. No admission that that was the case, that they did anything wrong, etc. By far the WORST service and WORST company I have ever worked with, in any sort of way.

In this video we take a look at the most recent version of OnionShare. This app runs off the Tor Network and helps you to easily share and receive files securely, host a .onion website with a few clicks, chat anonymously and all through a simple GUI.

    It's a great tool. Your site needs to download 5 files and uses js, that's a lot of handshake overhead and doesn't seem well optimized for tor. combine your css into one file, maybe consider going js'less, or at least combine it into one file, also minify everything. and looking at it further, "fonts.googleapis.com" just don't

    Great review. I agree we need to support developers (and YouTubers) who spend the effort to make great products for us.

    Instant.io is a file sharing website based on webtorrent it even works on iOS. Obviously it’s not anonymous like onion share. But it does run on all platforms!
