Why is my download/upload speed low?

A low download or upload speed may be due to your provider’s settings. You can find out your settings by following this link.
If the file you are downloading is being downloaded by several users simultaneously, this may also result in a low download speed because our servers will distribute the load equally between users. To avoid this and gain download priority, you may either become a Premium user or try downloading at a different time of the day.

I followed the link for file download and received a «FILE NOT FOUND» message. Why is this?

A «FILE NOT FOUND» message means that the file you are addressing was removed from our server.
There may be several reasons for this:

  • the file has been deleted by the user who had uploaded it
  • a copyright violation
  • storage time expiration
How much may I download from hitfile.net?

The total size of downloads is restricted by your provider’s settings and your user status on hitfile.net. If you are a free user, you may download about 5 GB a day if downloading continually, but note that free account speed is limited.

All users who have Premium access may enjoy the maximum download speed possible and download up to 25 GB a day.

I receive a message «Your IP reached connection limit, please try again in 500 (300, 200 etc.) seconds». What do I do to download the file?

hitfile.net aims at providing quality service to all users from all regions worldwide independent of the file size, of download time, or of the user’s browser or other settings.

We use Dynamic Download Splitting system which helps us provide an equal download opportunity to all free users notwithstanding the file size. Premium users have the priority for download speed; other users are placed in a queue if they have same IP; first come first served.

The time you have to wait in line (the time specified in the message you receive from the service, e. g. try again in 300 seconds) depends on several different things such as popularity of the file, the load of the server in you net zone, the time of the day etc, but the main factor is the file size.

As bigger the file size you downloaded the last time (before you requested the latest file from the same IP), as longer you will have to wait. To reduce your waiting time, we recommend downloading small files first.

You may also change your IP and try downloading the file again, since it is your particular IP that reaches the connection limit.

I receive a message from your service stating that I am downloading a file at the moment or that I have reached download limit while I have not been downloading anything! What may be the reason for that?

Our service is checking your IP to keep download records. If you receive such a message while in fact you have not been downloading anything, it means that you are using a proxy employed by a lot of users simultaneously. You may not be using a proxy for your computer, but your provider may be employing a client’s transparent proxy.

You may check your IP by following this link.

How to solve this problem? If you have access to your network settings, quit your proxy. If you cannot do that, the only way out is to buy a Premium account. Premium users are recognized by their cookies, not by their IPs. Unfortunately, we cannot cancel all IP checks; otherwise we would to shut down the service because of uncontrolled downloads. We hope for your understanding.

I can not download a single file, what do I do?

If you’re not a Premium user, try quitting all your download utilities (software that boosting download speed).
If the problem atill exists, probably your browser does not allow cookies. You need them if you are using a proxy.

I upload files through FTP and do not see them in my Personal Office — why is this? What are the restrictions on FTP upload?

The FTP server is synchronized with your Files every 10 minutes. After successful FTP upload, files will appear in your Files in about 10 minutes.

Due to the synchronization process, there is another restriction — you cannot upload more than 100 GB in total in 10 minutes to the FTP server.

Automatic transfer — files are transferred automatically to your account every 10 minutes
Manual transfer — clicking «transfer files» starts the file transfer immediately when they are finished uploading.

Can I search for particular files on Hitfile?

No. We care about our users’ privacy and confidentiality of information. Only those who upload files on hitfile.net receive the download link, and it is up to them to decide who will receive access to this file. So, you have access to the file only if you have the complete link.

What download software may I use for downloads?

You may use any popular program, such as Speedget, Download Accelerator Plus, GetRight, FlashGet and GoZilla, as well as Google File Download Manager and other download managers.

Why have my files been deleted before their storage time expired? What does «Some of your files have been removed for infringement of rules» mean?
