FileZilla: Best Free FTP Client

As a blogger we need to deal with server side that including upload and download  files from your hosting FTP server. There are many free and paid FTP clients in the market but some of them are really worth trying. Here I’m talking about my favorite FTP client FileZilla which happens to be free and you available for multiple platform.

Free FTP Client

FileZilla has become one of those essential software which I install after fresh installation of my computer. Here is a screenshot of FileZilla which you can see.

  • Host name : Host name is your FTP server IP or FTP Server name
  • Username : Username to access your FTP account
  • Password : Password to access your FTP account

Once you have entered all these details, click on quick connect.

Now you will be inside your FTP server, and you will see all your files in the right hand side of the screen. Now browse any file on the left side from your Computer, Right Click and hit on upload.

More over if you have multiple FTP server, you can use Site manager feature of FileZilla to save the login credential of servers and login next time with single click. FileZilla also give you option to export and import all your config including saved site details. So if you use multiple computers, you can always import one settings into another one.

So far, I have found FileZilla to be the most simple and powerful FTP client that you can use for free.
