We are testing the multihoster Offcloud with various file hosts using the simple download manager from Google Chrome. Our internet line is a 200 MB line from Vodafon and manages about 28 MB per second.

|approx. 1 MB per second

The download from Uploaded.net worked with Offcloud without any problems. 500 MB were on our hard drive in a few seconds and the download speed was almost 20 MB per second. Our internet line was thus almost completely utilised.
To test the multihoster, we downloaded a 500 MB file from DDL.to. The download speed started at just under 600KB per second and got steadily faster, reaching up to 10 MB per second. We were able to download the 500 MB test file in just under a minute.
We were able to download from Mediafire at 1000-1200 KB per second. The download started immediately and ran without problems. The speed was a little slow.
We were able to download the file from the French file hoster without any problems. The download started immediately and the speed was only 600 KB per second, but quickly increased to almost 10 MB per second.
We were able to download from the file hoster Filer.net at about 2 MB per second. The 300 MB test file was on our hard drive in a few seconds.
Unfortunately, the download of the Rapidgator file did not start and I got the error message: "Error ! The supported site is temporarily not available. We are working to resolve the problem quickly. Please try again in a while. Sorry for the inconvenience."
The download speed at the 1 Click host Turbobit.net was great and we reached about 22 MB per second.

Buy free multihoster or premium account
A premium account with the multihoster Offcloud costs $9.99 per month or $69.99 for a year. You only buy the additional service for the specified period and have no further obligations or risks after that. There is also the option to buy a Lifetime Preium account. This costs $199 and you enjoy the benefits of a premium account with Offcloud.com for the rest of your life. Of course, you are then bound to the provider and must rely on it.
The advantages of a Premium Account:
- Unlimited link generations
- Full access to all supported one-click hosters
- Video Streaming Provider
- Bittorrent link support
- 100 GB cloud storage space
The free account with the multihoster
With the free account at Multihoster, you can download up to 3 hosting, streaming or BitTorrent links every month. One can use all functions, including cloud and remote. However, some premium hosting sites can only be accessed with the paid premium account.
How Offcloud works
In order to use the multihoster Offcloud, you need filehoster links, an nzb file for Usenet or a torrent file. These can then simply be dragged and dropped into the Offcloud interface. After that, the transfer to the cloud or, in the case of OneClickHosters, directly to one's own hard drive begins.
Offcloud also offers a direct connection to Dropbox, an FTP server or GoogleDrive.
The payment options credit card, Paypal and many more
Offcloud accepts many different payment methods such as various credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express), Paypal and Paysafecard. Especially Paypal and Paysafecard should be the most interesting for most users. The Paysafecard makes it possible to pay for the premium account at Offcloud completely anonymously. All you have to do is go to the supermarket or the nearest petrol station and buy a PSC.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How long can I use the free account?
The free account at Offcloud can be used for an unlimited period of time. You can start with a free account before you decide to buy a paid membership. You can choose how long the membership should last at any time. The account is completely flexible and is not automatically renewed. So you have full control over the costs.
Which files or links are supported by Offcloud?
Offcloud supports all types of HTTP, HTTPS, FTP and BitTorrent links. It can really retrieve any public website and convert it into an offline HTML or PDF document. The provider also supports the retrieval of data such as video or audio files from hundreds of sources.
What offcloud alternatives are there?
If you are looking for an offcloud alternative, you should take a closer look at the multihoster Linksnappy. It offers much higher download limits and, in our experience, a better offer.
Are there any vouchers for Offcloud?
Currently, various 20-25% vouchers are being advertised for Offcloud. Unfortunately, none of these work. There may be offers for the multihoster again on Black Friday.
Our conclusion - very good, but not perfect
The first thing we had to get used to was the interface and the design. These two features are very reminiscent of a cloud provider on the internet and less of a multihoster. However, we were quickly positively surprised. The extensive functions (cloud, Jdownloader, torrent, Usenet, Dropbox and GoogleDrive connection) and the large list of supported file hosts convinced us.
The excellent download speed and the option to download Torrent and Usenet files also caught our eye very positively. Another plus point is the extensive payment options. You can pay for your premium account at Offcload by credit card, Paysafecard or PayPal, for example. There should be a payment method for every user. Offcloud does a lot right and can keep up with other established multihosters.
The price is comparable to the other providers. Especially the $9.99 is the usual rate for a premium account. Unfortunately, there is no discount for a 3, 6 or 9 month term. On the other hand, there is the possibility to purchase a lifetime premium account. This lifetime account with the multihoster costs $199 and can be worthwhile if you intend to use Offcloud for the next few years.
The biggest negative aspect is clearly the limited daily download limit. With Uploaded, for example, this is 10GB. So if you want to download 50 GB or more, you will quickly reach the limits of the offcloud. The hoster list is even more extensive with other providers, but of course this aspect does not matter to some users. After all, the most important file hosters are supported. Anyone who is still unsure should simply create a free account with the multihoster Offcloud and test it for themselves.
