The Perfect Website Add On

A friend recently asked me to suggest an online file hosting service and I thought why not share my suggestion and reasoning with you as well.  I can see your face forming a frown as you think to yourself, “what is this guy talking about and why should I care.”
Well, online file storage allows you to save and make available large files that might otherwise be impractical to store on your website. Storing these files on your website can quickly eat up your website hosting account’s storage allowance.  Add high resolution photos of you and your management team for the media to easily download.  If you blog like I do, online storage is a great place to host blog post images and files for readers to download.  You can also store and stream multimedia files including video and flash from your account. All of this and more is available without the need for expensive IT staff and confusing file transfer servers (FTP).
Now that we are on the same page about the value of online file storage services why is my choice, a good option? Here is the rationale I shared with my friend: 

  1. You can store a wide variety of files photos, video, documents, etc. 
  2. There is no bandwidth limit which is important if streaming hungry video and audio files. 
  3. You can enable rss feeds for files and folders notifying customers, clients or visitors of additions or changes. 
  4. Enable document collaboration so people you designate can modify shared documents.
  5. Box also offers a host of neat web widgets that allow you to seemlessly merge some of the service’s capbilites with your website.
  6. The cost is quite reasonable.
