Getting Started with the Single User Plan
Thorn Technologies provides a shared hosting option where you can sign up for an individual SFTP user. This way, you can provision an SFTP user without having to maintain a server.
To get started with a Single User Plan, visit www.thorntech.com for details.
The Single User Plan comes with a 30-day free trial.
