hubiC is a really, really simple cloud storage platform, providing very few features, however, for a very reasonable price. First of all, you can start your free account using which you will get 25 GB of free storage space for your personal needs. hubiC’s paid plans start from 1 EUR for 100 GB storage space and reach 10 EUR for 10 GB space for your data. This is probably one of the cheapest cloud storage services existing on the market.
hubiC’s web interface is a piece of cake to handle. Really neat and simple. The service also provides a desktop application and apps for smartphones and tablets – iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone 8, Android and Blackberry. However, we will cover these in a separate topic.
You can place your photos in the dedicated Images folder on the web interface, or you can create folders of your own, where you can store your valuable data in the cloud by clicking the + New Folder button. To upload your files to hubiC, open your destination folder and click the Add Files button. There is no file size limitation, so you can upload any media you like, as long as your quota allows.
After you have uploaded your images to the online cloud platform, you can perform a number of actions with them, such as Download, Move, Copy, Rename, Publish or Delete. Publish is the hubiC’s version of Share, so, don’t feel awkward.
Also, to share your files with others, you can click the button to the rightmost of your file. At this point you get a sharing screen, through which you can send this file via email to other users or copy a link to it, which you can paste to your friends and colleagues. Also, you can use a social platform to share your file, such as Facebook, Twitter or Google +.
At this screen you have one more useful function. You can set the expiration period for downloading your file(s). By default it is set to ten days, but you can modify it to five or thirty, if you like.
