Irrespective of their business volume, companies are registering for FTP hosting services to make client communication efficient and secure. If you are looking for a smart option to send large files over the Internet then it is recommended to register for advanced FTP hosting services. Advanced FTP hosting service provides necessary support to transfer large digital files safely from one computer to another via Internet. Email service is not sufficient for business process to exchange vast pool of information, nor it is the right option to keep the information away from Internet predators.

FTP, commonly known as File Transfer Protocol, is an efficient communication protocol that serves all purposes of corporate communication. You can send large files irrespective of their format (text file, image file, audio file, video file, multimedia file, etc.) through Internet by keeping the privacy of the content. Advanced FTP service provider will allocate separate space in their server as you register for FTP hosting service. This space will remain private for your business and allow you to store information in the allocated space that you want to share with other.

Advantage of File Transfer Protocol

Sending files as attachment via Email
Uploading files on the FTP server to share with other parties

There is a drawback in the first option. Email does not always allow files, which are large in size. Moreover, a mail server doesn’t always support all files types. Some common file extension, which are restricted by the mail server:
‘.wav’, ‘.scr’, ‘.pif’, ‘.exe’, ‘.bat’, ‘.com’, ‘.lnk’, ‘.hta’, etc.

There is no restriction on file type in FTP hosting service. Therefore you can easily transfer files via FTP server.

Advanced FTP hosting services are the right option for Designers, Architects and Printers to share their files over the Internet. It is observed that image files are large in size and creates problem when sending them through Email. Designers or printers need to send layout or multimedia presentation in digital file format.

You can store encrypted files in the FTP server and provide the password as a ‘key’ to the recipient to view the actual content of the file. Therefore, it is recommended to designers, architects or printers to use advanced FTP hosting service with added security feature for ultimate protection.
