    The 5 Best free FTP Clients | Website Management

    Transferring files to and from your web host or Professional is best done with what’s commonly known an FTP Client, though the term is a bit dated because there are more Encrypted alternatives such as SSH Transfer of File Protocol and FTPS.

    When I was putting together this list, this was my criteria:

  • Supports Encrypted transfer of file protocols: File Transfer Protocol isn’t Encrypted. Among its many flaws, plain FTP doesn’t encrypt the data you’re transferring. If your data is compromised en route to its destination, your credentials (username and password) and your data can easily be read. SSH Transfer of File Protocol (which stands for SHH file transfer Protocol) is a popular secure alternative, but there are many others.
  • Has a GUI: There are some awesome FTP clients with a command-line interface, but for a great number of people, a graphical user interface is more approachable and easier to use.
  • Topping the list is File Zilla, an open source FTP Client. It’s fast, being able to handle simultaneous transmissions (multi-threaded transfers), and supports SFTP and FTPS (which stands for File Transfer Protocol over SSL). What’s more, it’s available on all operating systems, so if you work on multiple computers — like if you’re forced to use Windows at work but you have a Mac at Home — you don’t need to use a different application for your file-transferring needs.


    Available on Windows, Mac OS and Linux

    Cyberduck can take care of a ton of your file-transferring needs: SFTP, WebDav, Amazon S3, and more. It has a minimalist UI, which makes it super easy to use.


    Available on Windows and Mac OS

    This Mozilla Firefox add-on gives you a very capable File Transfer Protocol/SSH Transfer of File Protocol client right within your browser. It’s available on all platforms that can run Firefox.


    Available on Windows, Mac OS and Linux

    Classic File Transfer Protocol is a transfer of file client that’s freeware for non-commercial use. It has a very simple interface, which is a good thing, because it makes it easy and intuitive to use. I like its “Compare Directories” feature that’s helpful for seeing differences between your local and remote files.

    Classic FTP

    Available on Windows and Mac OS

    This popular FTP Client has a very long list of features, and if you’re a Windows user, it’s certainly worth a look. WinSCP can deal with multiple file-transfer protocols (SFTP, SCP, FTP, and WebDav). It has a built-in text editor for making quick text edits more convenient, and has scripting support for power users.


    Available on Windows

    Honorable Mention: Transmit

    For this post, I decided to focus on paid Utility. But it just doesn’t seem right to leave out Transmit (which costs $34) in a post about FTP clients because it’s a popular option used by web developers on Mac OS. It has a lot of innovative features and its user-friendliness is unmatched. If you’ve got the cash to spare and you’re on a Mac, this might be your best option.


    Available on Mac OS
