Since Share-Online was taken offline, users have been looking for new, smaller hosters. In this test, we take a closer look at the file hoster DDL.to and its Premium Account. Of course, we also test which multihoster supports the hoster and how the download speed is. You can buy the DDL to Premium Account for as little as €10 for 30 days with various payment methods such as Paypal, Bitcoin, credit card or bank transfer. So what's the catch and what interesting news is there to report about the file hoster?
Which multihosters support DDL.to?
Since the time of the big hosters is over, many uploaders are switching to small providers. Now you can't afford a premium account for every file hoster and that's where the multihosters come in. These offer a decent download speed and access to many one-click hosters without annoying advertising or waiting time. We looked at various providers and partly tested which multihosters support DDL.to. We have only taken most of the information from the website of the respective provider.
The multihosters work with DDL.to:
- Linksnappy - 25GB limit per day (uptime 95%)
- Premiumize.me (mostly reliable and with maximum speed)
- Smoozed.com-50 GB per day - from €3.33 per month
- Mega-debrid.eu - 30 GB per day
The multihosters do not work with DDL.to:
Premiumize.me DDL.to Test
In our Premiumize.me Test we also tried to reach the filehoster DDL.to. The service is actually set to unstable, meaning that the service may be slow or unavailable. Nevertheless, we were able to reach the filehoster with the remote downloader. The maximum download speed with the multihoster account was about 550 KB per second. If you only want to access small files or only rarely, Premiumize.me is a good alternative .
Based on a comment, we tested Premiumize.me with DDL.to again and can share the positive experience with the multihoster. Today we reached the maximum speed of our internet line and were able to download from DDL.to at 2.2 MB per second. We only had a 16 Mbit line available.
Today at 1:10 am we were able to download at 5.8 MB per second from DDL.to with our Premiumize.me account.
Linksnappy Multihoster Test
The multihoster Linksnappy offers access to over 50 filehosters and the maximum download speed of a premium account. Today we tested the download speed and accessibility of the DDL.to test file with the multihoster. We have to give credit to the provider that it only states an 89% support of DDL.to. We were able to download the test file in about 30 minutes and had a maximum download speed of about 450 KB per second.
Smoozed.com DDL.to Test
Today we have tested the Multihoster Smoozed.com tested. We were able to download the file from DDL.to without any problems and achieved a download speed of 5-7 MB per second. The 100 MB file was on our hard drive within a few seconds. The Pro Account at Smoozed is available from 3,33€ per month.
Download Test with Free Account
Of course, we also want to know what speed we can expect if we only have a free account at DDL.to. Before downloading the test file, we have to solve a captcha and an annoying pop-up window opens. After that, the download starts immediately. The speed is 45-50 KB per second. This is not a big surprise and is comparable to other file hosts. So if you intend to download larger files, you should bring a lot of time with you or buy a DDL.to premium account or try out a multihoster.
The Upload Test with Free Account
The upload works without any problems and we were able to upload the test file at full speed. The maximum file size is limited to 2148 MB. Of course, you can also earn money with the uploads at DDL.to. The earnings at the file hoster usually depend on the amount of downloads and the countries of origin.
What payment methods are available at DDL.to?
There are many ways to buy your DDL.to Premium Account. Many different payment methods are offered and are constantly being improved. Unfortunately, there is currently no option to pay with Paysafecard. This will be available again on Monday, we will check.
Another negative point is that there are additional fees for payment with Paypal and credit card. If you want to buy your DDL.to Premium Account with Paypal, you have to pay a hefty 35% more in fees. Credit cards also incur additional costs of 17%.
Of course, the many resellers who offer the user other payment methods are good. Of course, you can find more information directly on the website or from the support team.

Prices for an additional traffic

|Price per GB||0,15$ per GB||0,12$ per GB||0.105$ per GB|
News about the "Freehoster
The filehoster DDL.to and the associated streaming service VUP.to were sold in November. The owner Vlado sold the projects to Hong Kong. At least that's what it says on the blog Tarnkappe.info. On the DDL.to website, however, there is no indication of the change. According to Vlado's statement, making money with DDL.to was never in the foreground. It was supposed to be a simple file hoster with a simple design.
In the comments, however, there is speculation about whether it was a "fake sale" to raise prices. Of course, it could also be due to the fact that Share-Online was recently taken offline and the operator wanted to pre-empt this step.
In the end, what matters to us is the service and the hoster itself. We have no influence on what goes on in the background.
- DDL.to is currently only available at DDownload.com or you will be redirected to it.
DDownload support can be contacted via a ticket system. I tried it myself and got an answer within 10 hours. I must say that it was Sunday and I was pleasantly surprised that the support answered so quickly. My concern was also solved and I am almost thrilled with the support.
