Ipswitch Town ?


Is it true that a software company named themselves after a British Town? At first sight it looks as if Ipswitch FTP is similarly named to the UK town of Ipswich, but there is a difference in the spelling.

So, if you've come here looking for the WS_FTP software company, it's Ipswitch, and if you're looking for the town, it's Ipswich. The two are quite distinct when you look closer, as one has streets and houses, and the other has FTP software and online data transfer.

Unsurprisingly, this page is at Zyra's website, where the virtual world has a tangible reality to it.
