Doc2PDF, initially hosted on my old desktop computer in my basement, was designed to make it easy to convert from Word to PDF, without any commercial software, totally hazzle free.
The original idea came when my university teachers sent me assignments in Microsoft Word
format. I didn't have Microsoft Word
, but I still wanted to be able to do the assignments (of course). So I created this site and sent the link to my teachers. With this site you can convert Word
documents to PDF
. It can also convert
to Macromedia Flash
Since then it has grown in popularity and is now has up to 20.000
visits every day, from all corners of the Earth.I have repeatedly been forced to upgrade the underlying servers because of the load on them.
People are generally very happy with the service and I get many thank you letters from the users of the site. For that I am very grateful.
Seeing the demand for this service, I created another free service, an Image Converter
