file transfer service

An organization that sends large files from the subscriber to designated parties. Offering free and paid plans based on the number and size of files transferred per month, file transfer services such as SendBigFiles and TransferNow provide a way to send large files that exceed the file size of email attachments. The only requirement is that both sender and recipient have email accounts, because all notifications are via email. Unlike cloud storage providers, file transfer services keep files on their servers for only a short period of time. See email attachment and how to transfer a file over the Internet.
