Yesterday, September 15, 2016 we held a webinar to introduce our new file sharing feature called InfiniShare. This will allow users to create download links to some of their files -- links that can then be shared with third parties that will not require login accounts in order to download the files.
File sharing has become popular in recent years due to services such as Dropbox, Box and Citrix ShareFile, among others. While these "file sharing services" do not offer FTP, FTPS and SFTP as options to move files between users as FTP Today does, that doesn't mean that we don't appreciate some of the capabilities of their software. One such feature is the ability of a user to create public links to certain files so they can be shared with other parties without requiring a login. With FTP Today, you now have this capability!
We call it InfiniShare because this effectively means that you can have unlimited guest download access to certain files or folders. Security controls do exist, however, so that these InfiniShare Links can not be used if they fall into the wrong hands.
InfiniShare was deployed Monday, September 19, 2016 on the following subscription plans:
Customers on other plans should contact FTP Today to discuss upgrading to a current plan.

On more than one occasion, our clients have asked if it’s possible to map files directly to a computer drive from the FTP Today application, whether that be The FTP Cloud or the GOVFTP Cloud. The process of this is called ‘drive mapping’ throughout the industry, and it is simple to accomplish. Today, we’re going to walk you through how drive mapping works, options for drive mapping, and finally, how to do so with FTP Today.
What is an API (Application Programmable Interface)? The Basics & Benefits
July 19, 2021
Recently, FTP Today launched a new feature as part of our platform called an Application Programming Interface, otherwise known as an API. Don’t be intimidated by the name! An API is useful for many things, and if your organization has access, it’s something you should take advantage of. This blog is meant to give an overview of what an API is and how it works.
The WebApp now supports uploading folders full of files (or full of other folders and files), just like an FTP client such as FIlezilla. The only catch is that all browsers do not support the necessary Windows file system access to do this.
