CuteFTP Review

A popular and feature-packed FTP client with a straight-forward interface
A review of CuteFTP by Fernando Ortega

CuteFTP Home is an FTP client used to transfer files between your computer and FTP servers. Useful for uploading and downloading files from an FTP service such as Digital Photos, MP3s, Web Pages, PHP Scripts and more. CuteFTP is among one of the most popular FTP clients on the market because of its advanced features and speed. It also sports a very modern graphic UI. CuteFTP runs on Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Windows Servers.

The File Transfer Protocol (aka FTP) is much faster and more flexible than transferring via HTTP protocol. CuteFTP supports resuming file transfers.

CuteFTP can backup to FTP, edit PHP files and edit HTML documents.

CuteFTP features and highlights:
  • Efficient, reliable, secure connections and transfers over FTP (FTP over SSL/TLS)
  • Upload Web pages to your ISP's FTP Server for viewing in a Web browser
  • Upload work files to an FTP server
  • Upload your auction images to an FTP Server
  • Upload or download multimedia files such as music, images, or video files
  • Download the latest game patches, programs, or game demos from participating FTP servers
  • Download large files faster than when using your Web browser
  • Back up critical files to an FTP server in case your system crashes
