[prMac.com] New York, New York - MacMate, the Mac cloud storage and hosting service, which launched to replace Apple's MobileMe service in 2012, has added its sixth key feature into the growing MacMate cloud service: FileSharing, the ability to easily send any file, any size, to anyone. With a few clicks, users can drag or select a file to share, add a message and send securely.
With a few clicks, users can drag or select a file to share, add a message and send securely. There's no file-size limits, no bandwidth restrictions and no limit to the amount of files that can be shared. It's quick, secure and has some innovative features like low-resolution previewing, expiry date and download notification, as well as being able to share a file with multiple users (cc'd or bcc's) and mailing lists - so a file can be shared with the whole company, school or an entire customer base for example. The really great news is that this unlimited file-size sharing service starts at just $29.00 USD per year, compared to $99.00-plus for comparable services.
Gary Hall, founder and CEO of MacMate said "We're continuing to add amazing services to MacMate. FileSharing works amazingly and is the most exciting new feature since we launched MacMate. It addresses problems customers have sending large files via email or FTP - offering them an elegant replacement - at an amazing price. FileSharing is quick, simple and secure."
Recently MacMate enhanced its hosting service - popular with iWeb users as well as anyone looking for Mac web hosting services - with easy-to-use SEO injectors and true multi-site and multiple domain capability for both websites and email. What's more is that the hosting is in fact very well specified: 100% uptime cloud clustered hosting with multi-continent load balancing and failover - something you'd normally pay significantly more for. As too are the business-class email facilities that come with MacMate.
From an established, award-winning ISP, MacMate's sixth key cloud-services under one roof represent a new chapter in how to share your cloud: hosting (from any web design program), galleries, email, cloud storage, filesharing and calendars.
MacMate promises to add additional functionality soon with public download folder enhancements, guest upload capability as well as a whole new, re-mastered gallery feature. With major product upgrades every couple of months there's surely much more to come from MacMate in 2013.
MacMate was designed specifically as an alternative to MobileMe and to fill the gaps left by iCloud, namely Mac cloud storage, iWeb hosting and galleries. Since its first launch in April 2012, new features have been added and improved and it's gathered a loyal following around the world. MacAce owns its own network based in both London and Bristol in the UK, New York and Boston in the US - with superfast links the world over. It's an ISP that proudly guarantees all of its services and has achieved notoriety, in the UK particularly, when it was crowned Best Overall ISP (Customer Choice) in the 2012 ISPA awards, as well as numerous other "Best ISP" and "Best Web Host" awards during the last 4 years.
Pricing and Availability:
MacMate starts at just $29.00 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) per year for the basic cloud disk storage at 5GB, email, iCal calendar hosting and now FileSharing. The top-of-the-line MacMate Pro ($99.00) package includes the web hosting and galleries features too. Included is a new iOS app for file storage, file sync and gallery management. Both are available from the MacMate website.
