New York, NY (PRWEB) July 26, 2011
File sharing just became even simpler.
Minus, which helps users easily and quickly share files online - pictures, documents, music, videos, and more - announced today it has acquired the Minus.com domain name. The sharing service previously used Min.us as its primary domain name, which although short, can be confusing for some users.
“Minus was founded with the philosophy that sharing media online should be simple, fast, and universal. While we love our Min.us name, over time, this name has caused confusion for new users,” said John Xie, co-founder of Minus. “So we did what all successful technology start ups do - we listened to our users, and acted on their suggestions.”
Although Minus will use Minus.com as its primary domain name, Min.us will still be fully functional, and Minus will still provide Min.us shortlinks to share files.
Minus is unique in its simplicity and power. To upload and share files, users simply visit Minus.com and drag a file onto the page. Once the file uploads, the user will be given a shortlink to the file, which they can share on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, in emails, instant message conversations, other websites and much more. Minus is totally free to use.
The site also offers advanced features for users with more requirements. For example, Minus is accessible through desktop and mobile browsers and also accessible through applications for PC, Mac, Linux, Android, iPhone, and Windows Phone 7. Browser extensions are available for Chrome and Firefox. Details are available at http://minus.com/pages/tools.
Minus is built using HTML5 and Cloud-based infrastructure, including Amazon's Elastic Cloud Computing technology.
