So after scouring the Internet I found one company that offers 25GB of free cloud storage and just happens to be owned by the number 1 web hosting provider in Europe and 3rd globally. HubiC is cloud storage services that offers unlimited online archive, provides the ability to share your files, sync and access your data through multiple devices, and provides speed and confidentiality for all their members.
HubiC is one of the best cloud storage services there is online. For one, it offers 25GB of cloud storage for free. No strings attached. They also don’t put limit sizes on files and provide multiple ways to retrieve your files. You can use their software to upload straight from your desktop or you can use their web access to manage your files with ease.
There are 3 plans on HubiC offering a range of upgrades that you may benefit from, depending on your needs.
Free Plan: This plan offers 25GB of total space costing you $0 a month.
100 GB: On this plan you will receive 100 GB of storage for 1 Euro a month which is about $1.36 a month. Please keep in mind that you will be billed on yearly basis so in total you will be paying $16.32 + taxes a year for this specific plan.
10 TB: With this plan you will get 10 terabyte of space for 10 euros a month. When doing the conversion from Euros to Dollars you are looking at around $13.63 a month.

I have been looking online for some decent backup options so I can store my additional photos, videos and documents since I ran out of space on Dropbox. I can always stick with Google Drive but I don’t like how everything is kinda jumbled together. Searching for a “free” cloud storage online can be a tedious task when you realize nothing is truly “free”.
There are plenty of services that offer free cloud storage but can they be trusted? Some even offer well more than 5 GB of online storage to backup your files with all the bells and whistles but again – how reliable is the service.
HubiC is operated by company called OVH which is a very popular web hosting service in Europe. The company was founded in 1999 and has over 600 employees. The company has over 150,000 servers and operates in 16 countries worldwide. On top of that they have over 750,000 paying customers. This isn’t a brand new company but a well-established one.
HubiC takes security very seriously. Many other services use servers located in the US while HubiC uses servers located on France. The cloud platform is hosted in 3 different data centers that are guarded 24/7. Every employee goes through biometric identification. You can read more about their data security here.
