About FTP Today

Secure File Transfer Industry Leader

Welcome!

In 2001, FTP Today became the first company in the world to offer the technology of online managed file transfer via FTP and related protocols.

By mid-2008, I made a commitment to plow a significant portion of our annual revenue into creating our own feature-rich FTP server application suite and control panel, now a single integrated app with a tone of features.

Today, we continue to lead the FTP / SFTP hosting industry and we also compete favorably in the broader file sharing services market. Below is a history of our company and some important milestones of our achievement. And, don't forget to check our our customer reviews.

Founder

Horan Data Services is Created

After four years working for others, Martin Horan chases the entrepreneurial dream by starting his own data entry business. HDS builds a strong base of data entry customers by focusing on the Marketing Research industry.

Roots in Offline File Transfer

HDS finds a niche in converting data from mainframe tapes to floppy disks for various operating systems and leads the Media Conversion market for the next 20 years.

Dialup Internet access spreads. The World Wide Web begins to catch on as the Netscape browser is launched.

Pivot to Internet Services

Horan Data Internet becomes one of Cincinnati Ohio's first dial up access and web hosting providers. The dialup business is later sold to Mindspring in order to concentrate on services such as web hosting and dedicated Internet access.

An Idea for a Startup

Recognizing a void of multi-user FTP/SFTP services in the web hosting marketplace, Horan begins researching hardware and software technology that he can use to offer hosted FTP and SFTP.

Official Launch of FTPTODAY.COM

The Next Generation

Three dozen Sun Cobalt appliances later, FTP Today moves operations to custom built dedicated servers in Silicon Valley and licenses VPS control panel software from Sphera.

From FTP Hosting to Software-as-a-Service

FTP Today forms an in-house application development department to begin developing its own intellectual property. Re-architects its infrastructure from the ground up.

FTP Today selects Peak 10 Cincinnati as it data center partner for its next generation infrastructure.

FTP Today Launches Proprietary Platform

Re-engineered on VMware and a custom hardware and software stack, FTP Today migrates all customers to its new platform, which includes its new Site Admin control panel.

With 90% of its revenue and nearly 100% of its profits coming from FTP Today, Horan Data Services eliminates its data entry and media conversion businesses.

Peak 10 selects Louisville for major cloud expansion. FTP Today begins planning a future migration to Peak 10's infrastrusture-as-a-service (IaaS) Enterprise Cloud.

LIVE MIGRATION to "The FTP Cloud"
