Pastebin.com is a famous website to store texts online. From the title you can guess it easily. It acts as a repository to paste texts. Suppose if you’re working on a code, a particular set of codes can be pasted and reused anytime from anywhere by anyone with a unique URL.

Pastebin describes itself as a website where you can store text for a certain period of time. The website is mainly used by programmers to store pieces of sources code or configuration information, but anyone is more than welcome to paste any type of text. The idea behind the site is to make it more convenient for people to share large amounts of text online.
