FTP access

You can copy to and download data from your website using file transfer protocol (FTP) at any time.

For this, you can use Hoststar’s Web FTP. It enables you to carry out FTP transfers in your browser or using a free FTP program from our Download Centre.

You can also use SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol) for encrypted FTP connections. SFTP builds an SSH tunnel through the FTP connection, which means data transfer to and from the server is encrypted. In addition to the commands entered, the data channel is also encrypted. This means both access data and the data itself is transmitted in encrypted form. Our servers support SFTP by default.
