YouSendIt is an online file publishing service that allows users to send big files to other recipients without worrying about hosting issues, bandwidth consumption or other problems that are associated with this topic.
The service offers 4 pricing plans:
- lite, a free ad-supported service which limits the maximum file size to 50 MB,
- pro, $49.99 per year, which increases the maximum file size to 2 GB,
- pro plus, $149.99 per year, which makes the total storage size unlimited,
- corporate suite, aimed at multi-user configurations (starts at $999.99 per year for 5 users).
The company was created by Amir Shaikh, Khalid Shaikh and Ranjith Kumaran. It managed to raise over $50 million dollars across several funding series. Although YouSendIt links are frequently shared on websites, the company has recently marketed itself as a method of business communication to differentiate itself from RapidShare and other similar tools.
