Using Internet Online Storage to Share Files Safely

Online file storage is the best way to share large files with your customers. If you have a website, you can save your files on your web host however, you risk your account from getting suspended because of excessive bandwidth usage. Remember, a shared hosting has many users and the load needs to be balanced among all the users.

If you need to send large files to customers or colleagues, you can send them a link where they can download the content they need. You can also customize file access restrictions and set expirations on the links you’ve given out. Smartfile’s online data storage also gives you an option of putting up a custom branded page to create uniformity between your online file storage page and company website.
