Opening Questions

What exactly is Ares Galaxy?

The first thing we want to address on our website is exactly what this piece of software is. If you've been searching around on the internet looking for something to give you the ability to share files, one thing a lot of people will have recommended to you is Ares Galaxy. However, if you're fairly new to the industry and don't really know what you're doing, you probably have no idea at all what it is and how you can use it, which is why we've created our simple website which is designed to help you learn how to install it as well as learning how to make the most of this piece of software, starting from the very basics and then working upwards from there. To answer the basic question, it is a tool designed to help you download and upload many different types of media and share them with hundreds of thousands of people. ​

So why would I choose to install it? ​

This is a very good question, one that would take a very long time to answer so we'll keep it brief by explaining some of its core values and biggest features that people love the most. To start with, it's very simple - just about anyone can use it. It has a very simple layout to it, where all of the features are neatly organised into different tabs. There's a media player which is designed to help you play back any of the data you've downloaded previously, it's just a click away no matter where you are in the application. You could browse the web too, again with a built-in browser designed once again to be simple to use. There should be no feature in the entire software that is too complicated for an amateur to do, which is something you should definitely be happy about.

The moral of the story is that you should definitely do your research into a tool before you judge it quickly. It's open source, which means anyone is able to contribute to the code and to the project which has allowed it to excel far quickly than any other file sharing application. This is what you should be looking for in a tool like this, so if you haven't installed it onto your system yet then we recommend that you go ahead and do so as soon as possible.

How Ares Galaxy Evolved

Ares Galaxy is a piece of software that has changed so much since it first started back in 2002. The basic function has always been the same - to provide a platform which allows people to share all types of files with each other with no barriers or problems which could get in the way. This is how the industry works, there are many other systems that provide the same functionality as this but do it in different ways, so we want to talk about the features it provides and how it has been altered over the ten years it has been alive and working.

In the first few versions of the program, it was based on the Gnutella platform and didn't have its own P2P network. This wasn't a great thing at all - it really limited the amount of features that could be implemented as well as the number of files that could be obtained. It didn't take long for the developers to realise this was a mistake and then decided to create their own network that only Ares Galaxy could run on. It took a lot of time for this to happen, especially since the technology at the time was rather new and hadn't fully been worked out yet. This proved to be a good decision in the end, though.

One of the biggest pieces of software in the industry at the time, called Napster, had just shut down after facing huge legal problems. This left a huge gap in the market - there was no other really popular tools so it was wide open, any program could take over. When the tool switched over to its own P2P network, it surged in popularity and suddenly hundreds of thousands of new years were joining and installing the software onto their computers. It was exactly what was needed, although it still had to face legal troubles of its own.

In 2004 and 2005, the Government really wanted Ares free to be shut down for good. It was getting too popular for them and the media corporations and they thought it had to go, so the developers decided the best way to get around it was to release the source code of the application so that even if the Government shut down the official website, the network could never be fully shut down. This idea worked perfectly and has meant that even today files can still be downloaded perfectly with no issues.

These days the file sharing application still provides the ability to obtain files but also does much more too. For example, there's a media player, chat facility and even an internet browser all of which are included free of charge. These are features you wouldn't have gotten back in the day and are there to make life easier and better for you. Users love these extra features, which is how Ares Galaxy has become the great piece of software that it is today. Joining the world's largest file sharing network is recommended if you're interested in this, but we don't take any responsibility if you do.
