Sending and sharing files is a daily routine. If you have the need in your working, or personal, life to send and share large files easily without tying up your email, senduit could be a service for you to try out.

The senduit service allows users to upload up to 100MB of data, and create a unique URL to share in two steps. This data is then given an available time frame in which users can access it. So if it’s somewhat private or sensitive material you can set it to be available for 30 minutes, and all the way up to one week of availability. A better known provider of this type of service includes yousendit, who allows for sending sizes up to 2GB with a subscription.

I find this type of service extremely useful when I do send large files to multiple individuals. I prefer them to download the files on their own terms when they have time to do so, while not interrupting their valuable business email service.

  1. That is a very good idea, especially the time frame in which to do so. I think I’ll get it bookmarked for future reference.

  2. I like senduit because you don’t have to register (unlike most of it’s rivals). You just upload and go, that’s it. Good work, senduit folks.

  3. Sounds interesting, but the Senduit’s website is now just a standard Apache “welcome page”. Oops, you may have broken them. :)

  4. I just set up a droplet on my desktop with my ftp client (Yummy and Transmit both support this), then when I want to send someone a file, I just drag and drop the file onto the droplet, it automatically uploads the file to http://www.mydomain.com/documents/filename.ext

    Then, I just email them that path… It works great for me. So, either there’s something that I’m missing, or other people don’t know how to do it… Because almost everyone I know hosting somewhere, and has access to their server via http://FTP...

  6. What about bittorrent? Fantastic for sharing large files between users – you can even make a torrent private…

  8. Nice! I will have to check it out next time I need to share a big file. Hey DIYMUS the only thing I could see wrong with sharing a private torrent would be the limited number of people sharing causing a slowdown…

  9. I’ve been using online web hosting services a lot and I found http://www.nakido.com is better. Unlimited upload and download space… and a big community to promote my music content. I can’t find anywhere else better.
