"Good filehoster"

Payment methods


Rapidgator is one of the most popular filehosters in Germany. Every day, millions of users use the service to store files on the Internet or share them with their friends. The provider has existed since 2010 and the users have had mostly positive experiences.

The Rapidgator Premium Account offers the user unlimited use of the service. This includes maximum download speed, unlimited number of simultaneous downloads and much more. Of course, the business model is based on the typical approach of filehosters. The price for the Premium Account starts at $8.33 per month.

Here in the article I show alternatives to the Rapidgator Premium Account. There are numerous multihosters that support the hoster. These are often cheaper and also offer access to numerous other file hosts.

    Place 1 Left Nappy

    The Multihoster Linksnappy is in my eyes the best multihoster if you are looking for an alternative to the Rapidgator Premium Account. You can download 30 GB per day at up to 50 megabytes per second. In my experience, Rapidgator was always best with Linksnappy. Unfortunately, this was not the case with all providers. Another point in favour of Linksnappy are the extensive payment options.

    • 30 GB per day download limit
    • Up to 50 MB/s
    • Paypal and Paysafecard as payment options
    • Over 70 other filehosters

    Multihoster Linksnappy in test & experience

    We tried to download a file with the multihoster Linksnappy, which we uploaded to Rapidgator for testing. The test file is 100 MB in size and we needed just under 60 seconds for the download. We achieved a download speed of about 2 MB per second and had no problems with the download. We carried out the test on 19.03.2020 at 3 pm and it is of course only a random sample. It is possible that the download is faster or slower at other times, as our experience with Rapidgator has shown.

    Update 03.01.2024: Heute konnten wir nur mit 99KB pro Sekunde mit dem Linksnappy Premium Account von Rapidgator herunterladen.

    Place 2 Offcloud

    Silver goes to Offcloud. The multihoster promises that you can download up to 15 GB a day from Rapidgator in Premium mode. However, today of all days Rapidgator was unavailable for more than 6 hours during the test. Of course, this can be a big problem. Otherwise, Offcloud offers a solid service. There are numerous payment methods and extensive hoster support, most of which are also accessible.

    3rd place Smoozed

    The last place in our test goes to the multihoster Smoozed. This provider has by far the lowest prices. The premium account for a whole year costs only €39.95. You can't really go wrong if you regularly use the supported filehosters. Unfortunately, Smoozed has also had problems with the availability of Rapidgator in the past.


    Linksnappy is the best multihoster if you want to access Rapidgator regularly. All providers were as expensive or significantly cheaper than the file hoster itself. What was particularly negative, however, was that Offcloud and Smoozed had difficulties with accessibility. If you only need the file hoster from time to time, you should buy a Linksnappy or a cheap Smoozed account. However, if you regularly store or download large amounts of data on Rapidgator, you will need a premium account.

    The costs for a Premium Account

    Cost Rapidgator premium account

    Here you can see an overview of the costs of a Rapidgator Premium Account. It starts at $14.99 for 30 days and goes up to $99.99 for 365 days. There are always bandwidth restrictions. So if you want to download particularly large amounts of data, you have to spend more money for more bandwidth.

    It is important to note that the Premium Account is automatically renewed. Of course, you can switch off this option at any time. The subscription is renewed 24 hours before the end of the period for the selected period.


    Rapidgator payment methods

    The file hoster offers the user numerous payment methods to buy a Rapidgator Premium Account. Visa, Mastercard and Bitcoin are of course supported. However, if you want to pay with Paypal or Paysafecard, you have to do this via a reseller. However, the resellers charge a 40% fee if you pay with Paypal, which is quite outrageous.

    • Payment by Bitcoin

    Support in the test and experiences

    With the Rapidgator Support I have unfortunately had bad experiences. Contacting them via ticket works well and the support responds quickly. Unfortunately, they could not solve my problem. I had a credit of $200 and instead of paying out the amount, my account was closed. The support was also able to help me and only said that I had violated the terms and conditions. The accusation is absurd in my eyes and of course I abide by the applicable terms and conditions. Now I can't log in, support won't talk to me, the 200$ are lost and I get the following message when I try to log in. I can only advise everyone not to use Rapidgator to earn money and upload files.
