Dan Richards and Brooke Bryan launched ZipCloud in June 2011 as part of the JD Backup group of businesses, which also includes ChilliSync, JustCloud, and MyPCBackup. The company offers one of the most comprehensive cloud storage services at affordable cost. The initial exercise was getting in touch with customers to find out type of storage needed and price range. The Mac version was introduced in December 2011 with a free trial. File versioning was launched in June 2012. An updated version of the app was released in August 2012. The reseller program was launched in September 2012. Cloud storage for BlackBerry devices was initialized in October 2012 along with a new Android app. The company introduced the 1GB free cloud storage gift program in November 2012 and launched the thumbnail feature.

Company headquarters and support centers are located at Hampshire in the United Kingdom.
