Enable/Disable FTP, FTPeS, FTPS, SFTP and HTTPS Protocols at will!

Latest Features

FTP Today is proud to announce a powerful new feature -- Advanced Protocol Controls.

Site administrators can now decide for yourself which protocols are enabled for file transfer, including FTP, FTPeS, FTPS, SFTP, HTTP and HTTPS. This gives you the power to enforce encryption (for example, by turning off FTP and turning on Explicit FTPS). Also, enabling only the protocols that you currently use provides added security by protecting the server from unwanted connection attempts on open ports.

Please note that we have not changed the way your FTP site functions, but you may still wish to disable some protocols that were formerly enabled simply because they came with your hosting plan.

Next time you log in to your FTP Today site administration system, visit the 'Site Settings' section. Use the 'Change Site Settings' icon to turn each protocol on or off at the site level. We have a knowledge base article on this topic posted here: http://support.ftptoday.com/index.php?_m=knowledgebase&_a=viewarticle&kbarticleid=92
