You can read more about the rapidshare at its websites, here is what we could find and summarize:

Brief description:
RapidShare is a Swiss-owned one-click hosting pay- and free-service (with certain restrictions and limitations) website that operates from Switzerland and is financed by the subscriptions of paying users. RapidShare is one of the world's largest file-hosting sites, with 10 petabytes of files on its servers, and handling up to three million users simultaneously.
In April 2008, RapidShare had 5.4 petabytes of storage for users. In March 2010 it stated, after a 120 Gbit/s upgrade, to have 600 Gbit/s of bandwidth.
Registration and payment allow benefits such as unlimited download speed, immediate download (instead of experiencing a waiting period), download of several files simultaneously, queue skipping, the facility to interrupt and re-start downloads, uploading, downloading bigger files up to 2 GB, allowing Free Users to download their files with Premium privileges ("TrafficShare") and to store up to 50 GB of data that cannot expire
There are restrictions on downloads by non-account holders, for example a 167-minute waiting (increased in 2011 from 15-20 minutes) time between downloads; there is also a 5-minute (previously 1 minute) waiting period for each download once the user's waiting time between downloads has refreshed.

Foundation date: 2005
