Frequently asked questions

What happens if I do not renew my subscription?

If you do not renew your subscription, you will be given enough time to backup your data from our data centers. Your data will not be lost.

We will contact you before the expiration of your selected subscription period. If you wish to renew your subscription, simply pay the amount due using your chosen payment method.

How long does it take until my FTP storage is available?

As soon as the invoice is booked with us, the FTP storage will be set up for you. All necessary access data for your FTP storage will be sent to you by e-mail within one working day.

How can I delete data as a power user?

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 these items. To get full access to these items, please proceed as follows:

  • Log in to the web interface
  • Select under Settings > Main User: "Set access rights to default"
  • Try to delete the data again

 

You may also have hidden files in the folders and therefore cannot delete them.

  • Connect to your online storage with the FTP client
  • Select View > Show hidden files
  • Now try to delete the corresponding data in the FTP client

 

If you still cannot delete the data, please contact our support.

FTP vs.FTPES / FTPS and SFTP – what is the difference?

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:

  • Explicit Mode  (FTPES)

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.

  • Implicit Mode  (FTPS)

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.

 

We offer SFTP with Swiss Premium FTP and with Premium FTP.

Is my FTP storage also accessible with my domain?

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.

Can I access my Swiss Premium FTP account with the web browser?

Yes, you can access the Swiss Premium FTP account with the web browser. You can reach the web interface at www.fastftp.ch. With drag & drop you can upload files or entire folders. The web interface is mobile compatible and can therefore also be easily operated via smartphone.
