Free User Registration

Starting with Xshell Build 0134 and Xftp Build 0134, registering for a Free for Home/School license will move from our website to within the software itself.

Ultimately, this move was a necessity to protect our users. With the incredible popularity of our Free Licensing, several counterfeit and unauthorized versions of Xshell and Xftp are being distributed around the web. With registration moving into the software itself, you can be sure you are using genuine NetSarang Computer, Inc. software.
