|Type of site||File Hosting/Cloud Storage|
|Alexa rank||309 (May 2013[update])|
PutLocker was re-branded as "Firedrive" on February 12, 2014 and became a cloud storage platform service.
Firedrive allows for access to media files without the need to download them. Video files are automatically converted to a streaming format, audio files are playable via a web based player, and images are embedded directly into the page. Firedrive currently does not limit the number of files a user can upload to their account; the maximum file upload size is set at 50GB.
FireDrive is not only a storage service; it also offers groups, profiles, file drops and advanced document managing, and some files can be accessed without downloading them (e.g., video files can be streamed). Also, all the uploaded information is encrypted. 
PutLocker's free version offers 20GB of space upon registration. Other plans are available as well: the Pro plan offers 1TB for $2.99 monthly, and the Executive plan offers unlimited storage for $29.99[clarification needed]
After Megaupload's shutdown, PutLocker's traffic was "on the rise" according to Chris King, a director of product marketing with Palo Alto Networks. However, a Paramount Pictures executive named PutLocker as one of five "rogue sites" on March 31, 2012, at the On Copyright conference. The site responded with a statement on April 3, 2012. PutLocker maintains that it's fully compliant with the standards laid out in the DMCA, reviewing and serializing any reported content that is deemed in breach of their terms of service. This is proven, as pronounced, by the fact that less than two-percent of the files uploaded to their servers are subsequently flagged as infringing of copyright. This is, in their words "A strong indication of the amount of legitimate usage we provide to the online community".
