Deutsche Telekom offers free file exchange via homepage products


* Homepage customers can use their Web storage space for exchanging large data packages
* High level of security, password-protected access for authorized users
* Deutsche Telekom is the only hosting provider to offer data exchange as a free, inclusive feature of its homepage service

Exchange large files quickly and securely: With the new WebShare application, Deutsche Telekom is the only hosting provider to offer a platform for the free exchange of data. Business customers and consumers alike can use the storage space of their Deutsche Telekom Website solution to exchange files such as large presentations and videos with business partners and friends quickly and securely. The new feature is now available free-of-charge for Homepage Basic, Homepage Advanced and Homepage Professional.

There is no limit to the size of files that can be exchanged using WebShare. Consequently, the application can be used for example when the file volume exceeds the maximum limit for sending or receiving e-mail attachments. Here is how WebShare works: After users have activated the application in the Deutsche Telekom Homepage Center, they can use the application to upload large files and make them available for secure and reliable download. They send an e-mail form from WebShare with a link to the selected recipient(s).

Recipients can then authenticate themselves with a password and download the provided files via the link.

As is the case with Windows Explorer, the files in the WebShare memory can be managed and moved easily using folders, directly in the browser. Numerous help functions and settings options enable homepage customers to purge the memory automatically of files that are no longer needed, to receive constant e-mail notification of all processes, such as downloads and file deletion, and to receive files themselves from authorized persons via WebShare. The design of the WebShare portal can be easily adapted to suit customers’ own homepages. WebShare is available as an open-source application. This allows homepage owners with programming skills to adapt and change the portal as they see fit to meet their individual requirements.

In addition, Deutsche Telekom ensures optimum security. Unlike with free Internet services for data exchange, there is no risk of exchanged files lying around on just any server: The files are protected and stored securely on the customer’s Web space at Deutsche Telekom’s highly-secure data center. The issuing of a password and use of SSL encryption, familiar to online banking customers, makes this type of file transfer more secure than sending files by e-mail.
