About filesio

filesio was developed to be used as an alternative for a FTP-server. The service provides several important features for exchanging files with business partners or customers in a professional way.

As a user, you can create individual accounts for your partners, allowing them to access specific files you uploaded to your online-storage at filesio. Accounts can be password-protected, can have a limited time of validity or you can limit the number of downloads per account. You can use filesio to speed up your workflow by sending notification emails automatically to the business partners or customers you provided the files. After all, filesio offers detailed statistics about how often and over which accounts your files have been downloaded.

Service Highlights

filesio has two mentionable, unique features.

  • You can embed the download dialog in your own websites using a widget. This way, your clients can download your files just by visiting your website.
  • The innovative pricing model is adapted to the pricing model of Amazon S3. This means, you only have to pay for the online-storage and the download-traffic you actually use. There are no monthly fees. Instead, there is even a totally free account with limited file size.
