Secure FTP Connection

In order to keep up with the latest security standards, SiteGround provides a secure FTP solution over SSL on all shared servers.

How to establish an FTP connection over SSL?

If you need a secure FTP connection over SSL, you should use the FTPES protocol (FTP over explicit TLS/SSL). Unlike FTPS (FTP over implicit TLS/SSL), which directly establishes a secure connection, FTPES allows the FTP client to request the security connection from the FTP server.

Detailed information on how to set FTPES using one of the most popular FTP clients - FileZilla, can be found in our tutorial on FileZilla functions.
