Online file sharing is the process of sharing a file with one or more users via the Internet.
It enables sharing and accessing the file through an Internet connection from an Internet-based server or online data storage/sharing service.
Online file sharing is also known as Internet file sharing, Internet file transfer and Web file transfer.
Online file sharing typically requires a file to be hosted or stored on a Web server or any Internet-enabled server. Once the file is stored on the server, it is generally assigned a unique URL. The end user can access the file through the unique URL.
Online file sharing can also be achieved through a cloud-based storage or collaboration solution that requires users to upload the file on the cloud server or a storage platform. End users can access, view, edit and download the file by logging into the server/application or directly through the file URL. The file can be accessed through the Internet, regardless of the geographical location of the user.
