Send large files through the Internet via FTP

Ever tried to send a 5 to 10 megabit file with your email account? Pretty slow, right? In fact some ISPs (Internet Service Providers) may even set a limit at 5 megabits or less for file attachments, complicating your life even more.

If you often need to send large files of 5 megabits or more through the Internet, get a Sun Hosting FTP account. FTP (file transfer protocol) is an Internet technology that was designed specifically for sending large files to other Internet users, whether they are located in the same building or 15,000 miles away.

Sending files using an FTP account is about 500 times faster than by email. To give you an example, a 5 gigabit (5,000 megs) video file can be sent using FTP in five minutes or less on average. While other hosting providers only offer speeds of 10 MBPS, Sun Hosting offers speeds that are ten times faster at 100 MBPS (100 megabit port speeds per second) to all its users, which greatly accelerates transmission speeds, whether you are uploading a large file or downloading it from the server.

We offer 5 basic FTP accounts that can be purchased directly on this page, or a customized FTP account can be tailored to your specific needs. All our FTP accounts are offered yearly, which means there are no setup fee, since you are paying for the service one year in advance.

IMPORTANT: Although some people will tell you that to send files via FTP you can use a Web browser such as Internet Explorer or Firefox, in order to get a great user experience and to enjoy the maximum speed and throughput your new Sun Hosting FTP account can really deliver, it is strongly suggested that you get a program that is designed specifically for sending files via FTP. There are some great ones available on the Internet, and some are even free. Simply Google 'free ftp software' and you should find some that are free and easy to download and install on your computer.
