We recently took the wraps off our latest server upgrades. Now SendThisFile customers can look forward to snappier performance with great non-English alphabet and special character handling in file names. We’ve even boosted file transfer security.

Systemwide we performed an application server upgrade. This means you now get better UTF-8 support across the entire SendThisFile system, including at the enterprise form, maximum downloads reached form, download page, and more. UTF-8 support means that non-english alphabet and special characters (e.g., Russian text or ampersands) that appear in your filename are preserved when they are uploaded to our servers. Most of our competitors will either delete these characters outright from your filename, or turn them into computer gibberish. So if you send a file via SendThisFile named “кий -%&+.doc”, it will stay that way.
A big undertaking was a recent optimization of our database, which reduced our load factor by over 50%. The result? A snappier UI with quicker page loading, faster transfers, and an overall improvement to the user experience. We even increased security at the SSL layer for even more robust file protection during transfers.
