Wait, why does parts of this site remind me of AnonFile?

  • Prior to the relaunch of Bayfiles one of our objectives was to build the site software ourselves, but after doing a bit of research we got in contact with AnonFile and agreed to purchase a copy of their well-proven file hosting software. This also included valuable content delivery network software so we could get up on track and serve files efficiently right away. We are currently rebuilding it to look and feel more like good 'ol BayFiles.

    Just to be clear - AnonFile have no insight into our business, we just bought a copy of their code.

    A big thanks to for all the advices and helping us out!
