With the recent shut down of MegaUpload, the cyberlocker and one click hosting services space was shaken violently. In the aftermath, several leading file hosters including FileSonic, FileServe, FilePost & x7.to either suspended their operations or reduced functionality that made sharing of large files possible. In dark times like this, you’d think that no one would think of launching a new cyberlocker service, right? Wrong. As it is always the case with file sharing sites, when one goes down, several others pop in to take its place. PirateBees is one such new service that claims to offer free, one click online storage. This yet to be launched service carries an interesting tagline “Made by Pirates, For Pirates”. Not much is known about PirateBees yet, apart from the fact that crew behind veteran DDL forum x264-bb are behind the project.
The initial pre-launch publicity about the new site was given through a mass PM sent to existing x264-BB members:
This is going to be the next big thing.

Official word is that the service will launch on 1st of April, 2012. And according to a comment on their FaceBook page, the servers are likely to be based in Latvia, where pressure from US laws would be minimal. x264-bb did suffer a lot with deleted links with recent shut downs of FileServe, MU and the likes. They may have finally decided to launch a file host of their own. Whether the final service will be free for all, invite only or exclusive to x264-bb members is currently not known. It’s all speculation right now - you can enter your E-mail address on the site to receive any official announcements made in future.
