Transfer Without Throttled Transfer Rates
TransferNow is another file sharing platform with which you can store and share files. As the market has matured inevitably more and more come into the field, but unfortunately become at best a me-too or at worst, pale imitations. TransferNow have no unique features nor benefits, instead choosing to blend in with the crowd.
However, choosing to blend in with the crowd can lead one to not only copy good points, but also some bad points as well.
TransferNow to their credit admits to capping transfer rates on some accounts. But even so, it's the end-user who suffers, which is why at Filemail, we don't throttle a thing. On top of which, we have custom UDP protocols that boost transfer rates of up to 200 times compared to HTTP.
In some cases ads are a viable revenue stream, typically when you have the volume to generate small incremental amounts. But the cost is far more than the small amounts gained. End-users pay that cost via a poor user experience, and one that Filemail will not partake in. We make revenue not by coming in our users way, but rather by staying out of their way.
Malware, viruses, trojans, to name but a few threats are steadily increasing, both by criminal organizations and in some cases, sponsored by states. To have no anti-virus protection is playing in their hands. At Filemail uploaded files are scanned for viruses.
Mobility and the need to enable our users to work how they see fit, means we don't confine you to just a browser. Our cloud storage service is available via dedicated apps for iOS, Android, OS and Windows. You can even use our API if you are so inclined.
You can send a file easily with TransferNow, with next to no questions asked. Well, bar yours and your recipients email address. Let's see how they compare with us.
With TransferNow you can send a file of up to 4 GB. We go one better, so with Filemail you can send up to a 5 GB file.
TransferNow caps transfer rates, so they should really be called TransferAndWaitAWhile. We on the other hand cap nothing and throttle nothing.
Ads are annoying. They sell you stuff you already bought, or don't want. We value our user's experiences, and will not clutter our UI and website with such nonsense.
Only 3 recipients can download a file in an hour. Filemail let's you have as many recipients as need be, and they can download it as many times as they want.
A 1-user account is for freelancers and professionals in a multitude of fields including photographers, marketers audio/video specialists, and engineers, to name but a few.
The table below shows the features in an individual account by us and TransferNow.
With a personal account you can send or receive a file of up to 25 GB, rather than the 20 GB max offered by TransferNow.
Not only do we not cap transfer rates, but we actually enable you to send files up to 200 times faster when compared to TCP based protocols.
Anti-virus and password protection means you don't have to worry about your data getting into the wrong hands, or having to handle an infected file.
You haven't got time to start chasing up your clients, asking if they have downloaded the file. With Filemail, you are in the know, so you can focus on other things.
A Business account is for companies that required multi-user accounts. Businesses have taken advantage of the speed and efficiency of sending and receiving files via the internet, rather than snail mail and other such outdated methods. However, due to the size of the files, and the need for security and compliance, businesses are using dedicated transferring solutions like Filemail that go far beyond emails and FTP.
The table below shows the business account package provided by Filemail and TransferNow, and how they compare to each other.
TransferNow limits how big a file you can receive. Don't annoy visitors and clients, use Filemail and let them upload what they want.
Price is obviously a factor in the procurement of a solution. Filemail is a more cost effective solution than TransferNow, and a more holistic solution.
Sometimes you need files for longer than 30 days, but with TransferNow you need to renew it, otherwise it is deleted. Using Filemail would mean one less thing to remember.
You can customize all outward facing aspects of your account, be it emails, subdomain, and website integration form. Stay within brand guidelines and give a professional sheen.
