13 Best File Hosting Websites for Remote Work for Entrepreneurs in 2020

What do you mean by file hosting websites?

File hosting websites are internet hosting services that allow users to access, modify, and share files in a safe and secure manner across the web.

Let’s consider the cloud war between the tech giants Amazon (AWS), Microsoft (Azure) Google Cloud, IBM and AliCloud. Irrespective of who wins this war, the competing cloud services offered by them to developers or enterprises typically boil down to these basic features:

  1. Storage – How much storage space does the file hosting website offer?
  2. Compatibility across devices – Is the service compatible across mobiles, devices, PC’s and laptops running on different OS’s?
  3. Compatibility across web browsers – Is the service compatible with different web browsers such as Firefox, Opera and Chrome?
  4. Secure File Sharing – Does the service offer any mechanism such as two factor authentication to share files securely?
  5. File Encryption – Does the service provide file/data encryption using methods such as 256-bit encryption?
  6. Cost – How much does the service charge to upgrade the storage limit or using additional features?

For remote teams, it becomes necessary to properly plan your choice of a file hosting website, especially because the nature of remote work involves a lot of file sharing with stakeholders distributed geographically. You would already know multiple instances of data leaks wherein unauthorized users had access to service user’s sensitive information.

Thus, in addition to using the above guidelines to use a particular file hosting website or service, you may also use the below parameters to make a decision:

  1. Disaster Recovery Services – In case of data loss from servers, does the service provide additional functionality to recover the lost data?
  2. Serverless File Sharing – Does the service use a decentralized solution like blockchain to counter the instances of data theft?
  3. Ease to Scale – How many additional users can be added when the remote team expands?
