One of the Largest FTP Hosting Service Providers, Offering More Than Just Regular FTP

DriveHQ offers a complete FTP hosting and file sharing solution. You can set it up instantly. Not only it saves time, but also it saves cost on FTP Server Hardware, Software, Hosting and System Adminstration. Our service is better than other FTP service providers because it includes many cloud services such as automatic backup, folder sync, drive mapping, web-based access, etc.

Most other cloud service providers don't support FTP, e.g. Google, Dropbox and Carbonite don't support FTP. Traditional FTP hosting providers such as only offer FTP service, but their prices are much more expensive than DriveHQ's.
