Keep2Share (k2s.cc) is a popular filehosting site. This filehoster stores a bunch of different types of files from video to audio to software, games and more. The thing is though, if you want to download a lot of files from Keep2Share, you’re going to need a premium account. Which, a Keep2Share premium account is great if you only want to download from Keep2Share as a premium member, but not necessarily the best option if you also want to download from other filehosting sites with high speed.
This is where a LinkSnappy Elite account can help.
Linksnappy Elite vs. Keep2Share Premium
Strictly speaking of price, a Keep2Share premium account is cheaper than a LinkSnappy Elite account for one month of service. However, when you purchase longer membership packages, LinkSnappy becomes much cheaper per month:
|Service||1 month / PM||3 months / PM||6 months / PM|
|Keep2Share¹||$9.50 / $9.50||$28.50 / $9.50||$57 / $9.50|
|LinkSnappy²||$12.99 / $12.99||$29.99 / $7.50||$54.99 / $6.11|
¹ Keep2Share has a second premium account option called Premium Pro that costs $11.75 per month
² LinkSnappy per-month price factors in voucher use. 3-month accounts include 1 month of free service, 6-month accounts include 3 months of free service.
* Prices and voucher information accurate as of December 23, 2017.
While prices can be important when deciding whether to purchase a filelocker premium account or use a multihoster service, how much or little a service costs shouldn’t be the most important factor.
Downloads and Membership Options Differences
Three questions you should ask yourself before deciding whether a premium account from Keep2Share or a membership with LinkSnappy is the better choice for you:
- How many files do I want to download from k2s.cc?
- Do I want to upload and share files with other people?
- Would it be beneficial for me to have premium access to other filehosting sites and a torrent downloader in exchange for being able to download fewer files from Keep2Share every day?
If you plan to upload and share files, then LinkSnappy won’t work for this. LinkSnappy is a file downloading service, not a filehosting site. Also, if you want to download hundreds of Gigabytes of files, you may need to look at the more expensive K2S Premium Pro account. That account level offers 50GB of daily downloads and the regular premium account only offers 20GB.
LinkSnappy presently offers 5GB of daily downloads from Keep2Share, but downloading k2s.cc files are not the only appeal of this premium multihoster service.
Torrents, Multiple Premium Accounts in 1 Account
Downloading from Keep2Share is just one small part of what comes with a LinkSnappy account. Your account with LinkSnappy allows you to download from over 45 different sites, just like you would with a direct premium account. Some of the currently-supported filehosters include:
- Uploaded / ul.to
And several more. This is the appeal of a multihoster service: you get more download choices for about the same money (or less) as buying single premium account from a filehosting site. Plus, you get access to a torrent downloader with your Linksnappy Elite account — this includes free cloud storage and eliminates the need for using a VPN while downloading torrents and magnet files.
Example download using Linksnappy, jDownloader and Keep2Share
Here’s a video I recorded using jDownloader2 to download from Keep2Share using my Linksnappy account:
I was on my wireless versus a wired connection, but up to 3.5Mbps speeds are certainly decent and ok for the purposes of this video.
While multihoster services support any filehosting site on a “best effort” basis, I think Linksnappy is a good choice if you’re looking for more freedom when downloading files. I’ve been using the service for around 3 years now and am really happy with the reliability I’ve encountered, plus I’ve become a huge fan of their torrent downloader, too.
So, if you’re looking for the best multihoster service that supports Keep2Share downloads, Linksnappy is the service I recommend.

Unfortunately with Linksnappy you are only able to download a maximum of 1GB/ per 24hrs with keep2share, so if this is a site you use a lot then linksnappy is no solution.
I personally use linksnappy & find the service excellent, but to not point out the floor compared to buying premium service from keep2share is incompetence at best & dishonest reporting at worst.

Actually, I think that 1GB/day cap is relatively new-ish, within the past couple of months. They had some troubles with Keep2share for a while and I’d imagine that helped keep the problems down while still being able to support the hoster to a limited degree.

I didn’t realize there was a cap. I know Linksnappy has a few hosters with limits, just haven’t looked in a while. When I’m downloading files I just grab the links that I recognize as supported and download them, and I don’t usually do more than 1.5-2GB at a time. Thanks for pointing that out, I’ll be sure to add this in here once I find out what Keep2Share’s own limits are for premium account users.
