5 most popular FTP client Programs for your web server

An FTP program assists you in transferring files from your local computer to the server containing your website files. If you have files, images, videos or documents that you would like to put on a website, then you will need an FTP program to put them there. Plenty of FTP programs are available on the internet, some costing quite a bit. We, however, don’t feel that you should have to pay anything when there are so many great ones available for free! Here are four that make our list:

1. FileZilla – FileZilla runs cross-platforms (Windows, Linux, BSD, Mac OS X and more) and supports FTP, FTPS and SFTP. It features an easy to read comparison screen of both the local files and server folders with drag and drop support, remote file editing, and readability in many other languages. There is even an FTP Server version available.

2. Core FTP – Core FTP offers most of the same features as FileZilla. Visually, it also appears much like FileZilla and boasts drag and drop support, file editing and viewing and command line transfers to name a few.

3. FireFTP – FireFTP is interesting because it actually works as a Firefox add-on. So, if you are a Firefox supporter, you can now FTP your website files in another tab of your browser. FireFTP also runs cross-platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X) and supports a secure connection. It features drag and drop use, directory comparison and is made to work in over 20 different languages.

4. Cyberduck – Cyberduck is an open source FTP program made for use with Mac OS X. It supports both FTP and the secure SFTP protocols and allows for server side file editing. Cyberduck is available in over 30 languages so users around the world can enjoy its added features of being able to manage Amazon CloudFront and Rackspace Cloud files.

5. CuteFTP – CuteFTP helps connect to new FTP sites in a snap with step-by-step wizard. A user-friendly interface allows you to easily update and maintain sophisticated websites. You can create, open, and edit HTML documents on your computer or a remote server within CuteFTP with an integrated, color-coded HTML editor.

And, there you have it! These are four great and free FTP programs that will have you uploading your websites in no time!

  1. I use FireFTP or I just use the FTP client built into Dreamweaver. I used WS_FTP for many years and I bought a pro version for almost $100 bucks last year and I’m disgusted with the product. FireFTP has most of the functionality of WS-FTP and its FREE. Plus once I bought that overpriced copy from ipswitch they kept sending me sales spam for other products and reminderss that my service contract was up. Service for a simple FTP client? That’s ridiculous but they make money selling to people that don’t know any better I suppose.
