What is LobFile?
LobFile is a purpose built file sharing and hosting website. You can make your own tool to upload and share files, or you can use a feature rich one like ShareX. This service was known as "Lithiio" for about 6 years, but was renamed to "LobFile" in December 2021.
Here's an overview of what LobFile can do for you:
- Host your files, with a dedicated and unique link to each one!
- Share file links anywhere! Discord, your website, Email, etc.
- View and manage your file library on the website with some stats.
It was initially a private tool I intended to let select friends who were interested in it use. I quickly realized people were searching for a reliable and convenient platform they could use to host and share files with their peers directly (and sometimes even indirectly, on their personal websites or random forums around on the internet). This led me to opening registration to the public (sometime in early July of 2016). This introduced a lot of fun technical challenges that just further drove my excitement and ultimately pushed my development skills to the next level. Since the beginning I have worked on LobFile during my free time. Adding, fixing, and revising the tools and features that makes this service what it is today. Working on LobFile is one of my favorite hobbies to this day.
Why LobFile?There are several reasons why I originally created this service:
- LobFile isn't a profit-driven service, and never will be.
- Alternatives push you to use their "custom software". I didn't want to install branded software to simply share files. You can upload files in any way you'd like on LobFile.
- Popular hosts cover their sites and applications with ads and other content that isn't relevant to you in order to earn additional profit, like ad clicks, commercial referrals, and selling your data. We don’t do that here.
- Most hosts compress your files (often significantly reducing the quality of your screenshots, photos, and videos). LobFile doesn't modify your original files whatsoever and aims to maintain the original integrity of them using sophisticated file digests such as SHA-256. This is especially excellent for content creators such as those who specialize in graphic design, photography, and many other disciplines.
