About FTP Today

Secure File Transfer Industry Leader


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 ton 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.

Martin Horan

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
