pastebin

zero derivation; compounding; verb
To share a long, usually many-lined snippet of text or code by pasting it into a site like Pastebin.com, then sending a link to that site, as opposed to sending the snippet as many chat messages.
 
The verb form pastebin is likely used as a shortened version of “to use a pastebin site for,” where a “pastebin site” is any website that provides similar functionality to the website Pastebin.com. Pastebin.com was likely named such because of computers’ paste function, and because, like a bin, documents can be easily placed into it.
Etymology : Compound of paste and bin
