Who would have thought that you can also maximize the power of cloud servers for file sharing? Yes, you’ve read it right. File sharing in the cloud using Amazon Web Services Cloud.

This giant leap in file sharing is miles better than the over-hyped Dropbox and the costly services available today. File sharing has never been this good. In fact, it’s blazing fast and you could see that files are being transferred in just a blink of an eye.

I’ve tried it myself and it was definitely amazing. You’ll love it. Want some more?

HostedFTP is a privately owned corporation based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada which provides businesses with reliable, secure and easy-to-use file sharing services hosted purely in the cloud.

Powered by Amazon Web Services Cloud servers, HostedFTP is going to knock you down with its speed which no other file sharing services can match.

An account with HostedFTP includes a FTP server hosting in the cloud as mentioned above, a file sharing plugin which you can brand, customize and implement to your website, and finally, the cloud storage which you can assign with specific drivers or folders with prior privacy protection and added security such as TLS/SSL connections.

A personal account with HostedFTP usually costs $10 per month for 10GB storage; group or multi-user account costs $40 per month while enterprise or multi-user/group accounts costs 80 per month.

These prices are fairly understandable because of the cost of cloud servers which were also evident on Cloud Web Hosting.

HostedFTP has chosen Software Critics to be one of the few sites to offer an exclusive lifetime discount of 10% for its readers. Yes, you’ve read it right. No expiration. Simply use promo code SOC upon check-out.

HostedFTP wouldn’t want you to just buy without trying their service so they are offering a 30-day free trial. You can sign-up here for your 30-day trial.

But wait, there’s absolutely more!

    Just know about it but it seems a promising technology. It is promising because the company has sharing server everywhere without need to maintain the real server.

  2. Yet another time you come with a great contest and good review. Wish you success but you have to promote your article well to get responses. It’s really odd when you organize a contest and very few taking part.

    I know. It’s challenging to promote a contest in behalf of a paid service because most people depend on free stuff when the truth is, they don’t really know what they are missing.

    I wish all bloggers support each other instead of bashing them with awkward comments that are not even helping their cause. Just my two cents. 😉

    @Dana, that is really true. The service is just magnificent and fast. I’m having a great time using it. You should try it too and see it for yourself.
