FTP Storage - in Europe
FTP stands for "File Transfer Protocol".
FTP is ideal for large files, your daily backup, and as secure and fast cloud storage. It offers connections over FTP, FTPES, and SFTP. You can add your own Logo and customize the color presentation to your wishes. Furthermore, you can reach Premium FTP under your own domain. For large data volumes you can choose bandwidths up to 500 Mbit/s.

Your data is stored in Europe.
The transfer to our server takes place over an encrypted SSL connection.
Our web-based file manager is comfortable and very easy to use.
Manage your guest users and configure the user names and passwords.
You decide which data you want to share with your guest users.
You can see which activities take place in your storage.
Connect your FTP storage using your operating system or third-party applications.
Using various programs you can sync your local data or create automated backups.
The restore is possible for the last 7 days exactly to a day and afterwards during 28 days for the week.
You can upgrade your subscription at any time. The credit balance of the current subscription will be credited to you when you order the upgrade.
Before your subscription expires, we will contact you several times by email.
When files or folders are uploaded by a guest user, that user is automatically the owner. By default, you therefore have read-only access to this data. To get full access to all data, please proceed as follows:
Change access right to a single folder:
You may also have hidden files in the folders and therefore cannot delete them.
If you still cannot delete the data, please contact our support.
Yes, you can access your FTP Storage under your own domain or subdomain.
For example, the subdomain might look like this: cloud.mydomain.ch
We will send you the details for the DNS entry by e-mail.
The FTP server is set up in such a way that your connection is also established via a secure, encrypted link. We will automatically set up the required SSL certificate for you.
The FTP service to up- and download files is well known.
But what is the difference between the other types such as FTPS and SFTP? Which one is responsible for a secure transfer? To understand the difference, let’s start by explaining the regular FTP protocol.
What is FTP?
The FTP protocol originates from 1971 when the first RFC entry (959) was published for the FTP protocol. FTP could upload, download copy and delete files on different computers/servers. Additionally, it could create, delete and read directories. FTP uses usernames and passwords for authentication via an unencrypted connection as well as the transfer (usually through the default port 21).
What is FTPES / FTPS?
FTPS – File Transfer Protocol over SSL establishes the connection and the data transfer via the SSL/TLS protocol. There are two modes:
In Explicit Mode the client will request that the connection to the Server is secured and accept the encryption together. If the client doesn’t request this security, the server can either allow an unsecure connection to be established, suppress the connection or straight up block it.
In Implicit mode negotiating connections is not supported. The client sends his answer right after he sends the request via SSL/TLS. The connection is cut off if the client doesn’t receive an answer. However, this mode is not described in the official RFC 4217, so there is no standard for it and it is not supported by us..
The authentication is preformed using username and password via an encrypted connection as well as the transfer.
The safety feature for FTP is FTPES.
What is SFTP?
Another Security standard has developed in UNIX systems: SSH. SSH’s main function back then was to encrypt remote access on the UNIX Shell and was improved through the File Transfer Protocol (FTP) later on – initially with SCP afterwards with SFTP. Thereby SFTP has nothing to do with the actual FTP and is called “SSH File Transfer Protocol” for that reason. The authentication is preformed using username and password and the transferred data gets encrypted.
So SFTP is the “SSH File Transfer Protocol” via an active SSH connection.
The frequent mistake
The abbreviation SFTP is often used falsely to describe “Secure FTP” which it is not in fact. A similar common mistake is that the phrase SFTP is used as “FTP over SSL” which in this context is wrong as well. “FTP over SSL” is FTPS!
And now? FTPS or SFTP?
We advise you not to use FTP without encryption if possible.
Ideally you should use FTPS in explicit mode (FTPES).
With SFTP, the transmission of access data is always encrypted, the transmission of files can be encrypted.
Your data is reliably protected by several firewalls, monitoring of the servers and a daily multiple backup, among other things. All Premium FTP data including backups are stored in data centers in Europe.

The market offers numerous FTP clients. In terms of functionality and operation, they sometimes differ greatly. Some are only compatible with Windows, others only with macOS or Linux. We present you some free programs.
