What are the benefits of downloading with FileUp, rather than linking to the file directly?

Using FileUp to transfer files from the server to the client has several advantages over linking to a file directly:

  • Files downloaded with FileUp are more secure because:
    1. They do not need to be in a browsable location on the server.
    2. The path to the file only exists in the server-side code, which helps protect sensitive information from end-users.
  • Files can be downloaded from any location on the web server, or from a file server or from a database.
  • FileUp also allows you to limit the bandwidth used for downloads per connection and per server.
