MyDocsOnline Review: Is It Still Firing On All Cylinders?

Having been founded way back in 1998, MyDocsOnline is one of the most established file sharing businesses in the world.

Headquartered in Florida, the company has worked with businesses in over 160 countries to secure professional documents while delivering collaboration and data storage via the cloud.

In this MyDocsOnline review, we'll see how good this veteran file storage system really is.

What is MyDocsOnline?

First of all, MyDocsOnline is aimed at businesses and professionals, not end users.

MyDocsOnline delivers several packages intended to suit companies with a wide range of needs - from small businesses to big enterprises. There is also a free 15-day trial on the packages, meaning that you have plenty of time to get to grips with its features before committing to a subscription.

Documents and files can be shared via both mobile and desktop platforms, with Windows, Mac, iOS and Android all supported. This means that almost every mobile device will be compatible with the MyDocsOnline system.

MyDocsOnline reviews have often praised the system for its intuitive user interface, and I would have to agree with this opinion. MyDocsOnline had 20 years to get it right - and they did.

The straightforward drag and drop system, coupled with the easily accessible folders and synchronization process makes this a highly intuitive file sharing platform. The design isn't completely brilliant, but in here, it's definitely a case of function over form.

Upload and download speeds seem pretty swift throughout, and MyDocsOnline overall appears to be a sturdy and reliable solution.

There is also no limit placed on individual file size. Still, the 5GB storage offered in the standard package is perhaps a little thin compared to some of the site’s competitors.

A useful feature that MyDocsOnline has is Customer Upload. Each account gets a custom link to an HTTPS page where the platform user can safely receive files from their customers. Free branding is also included - instead of MyDocsOnline logo on top you can put your company's. It's a practical tool if your business receives a lot of files from clients.


Is MyDocsOnline Safe?

MyDocsOnline goes to great lengths to ensure that data is safe and secure, including sophisticated encryption software. There have been few MyDocsOnline reviews which have indicated that the security is on point and I absolutely agree with these sentiments.

In the 20 years of business, MyCloudOnline has been safe throughout all major attacks - so there's no reason to worry here.

MyDocsOnline Pricing

The pricing for MyDocsOnline can be viewed in the table below:

Price Per Month $9.95 $29.95 $59.95 $99.95
Users Supported 1 3 10 20
Storage 1GB 5GB 10GB 100GB

Since the company targets businesses, it is pricey. At least you can choose out of several packages, and pick the price that is more fitting your wallet. And yet still, more space is available at lower prices elsewhere. If storage is your priority, consider looking elsewhere.


Highly established company
Speedy system
User-friendly interface


Expensive provider
Relatively limited storage space
Poor options for free users

MyDocsOnline Review: Conclusion

MyDocs Online delivers a reliable and speedy system, and security is most definitely on point. However, I can’t quite recommend it for your file storage needs.

This is simply because they charge a high price for their services. Much cheaper and better value for money options available elsewhere.

So, while it might be worth some consideration for businesses with smaller files, MyDocsOnline fails to deliver a reasonable service for those needing to store large amounts of data.

Richard Viets, the CTO of My Docs Online here. Thanks for your review. I'd like to point out a few additional things that might not be obvious if you were not considering us for some particular and popular needs. First off, we are aimed at small businesses and professionals, not consumers. There are plenty of free choices for the individual user, but businesses need a service that meets their needs and also provides real support. In addition to email support (and chat) we also answer the phone when our customers call. Second, the most popular feature for small businesses and professionals is "Customer Upload" a highly customizable and embeddable secure file upload solution that allows our customers to receive files from their customers and clients. Third, the next most popular feature is our "Share" option allowing our customers to "go the other direction" to securely deliver files to their customers and clients. Did I mention we answer the phone to directly help our trial and paid customers? Who else does that these days?
