Alternatively referred to as nopaste, a pastebin is a website for pasting information online and is useful way to quickly share text, code, or other data online. For example, instead of pasting dozens of lines of code in a chat room you can paste a single link of what you want someone to see in chat. Pasting a lot of text directly into a chat room can cause you to be kicked and can disrupt others conversations. Such paste sites also have other benefits, such as for users who cannot send or receive files directly due to a firewall or other connection issues.
