How do you send large files over the Internet?

I am often asked how to send large files over the Internet as quite often there is a size limit or timeout limit on general email accounts, particularly if you are using a standard home-usage account.

I love two companies – Send This File and You Send It for this type of thing. Please note: I don’t get any commission for recommending these companies, I just do so because I love the service they provide.

They work much the same way. Basically, you select the file you want to send, click a couple of buttons, then your file is uploaded to a private area on their site and they will email a message with a download link to your selected recipient/s. The recipient of the file will receive this email saying that their file is ready for download; they click on the link and download the file. Easy!

This is fantastic when you have a file containing lots of high quality graphics, audios or videos.

You can sign up for a free account to trial both these companies and for many, the free account is all you’ll need. However if you find yourself wanting to use the service more and more, there are various upgrades that may be more suitable.

Check them out now… once you’ve tried them, you’ll use them wherever possible!


  1. They are great services 🙂 I know I receive quite a few files this way and it is so much easier than burning & sending a CD.

  3. Those guys do work good. I have tried a few others also. is good, I like being able to upload complete folders and files, it doesn limit you on the number of files you upload, only the total file size. The total upload has to be under 100mb and it also zips the files during the upload process. Simple looking site, but seems to perform well also looks really good, but I think its free to some extent, and then you have to pay a fee recieve the full service. I like the page design and layout.

    There are several others available that look good, but I haven’t tried them all.
