Setting up your own internal office server can be costly with the equipment, configuration, licensing and Internet speeds required. With our Secure FTP Hosting Service your data is stored in a secure UK-based data centre, isolated away in your own Secure FTP Server area.
Having your data accessible from our UK data centre means that your Secure FTP Server is not restricted by the slow upload and download speeds of traditional ADSL connections. Your service is always available, secure and accessible worldwide by your clients, suppliers and partners.
There are a few different flavours of Secure FTP Hosting, we offer access to your Online Storage by all these methods so that you can build our system into any Secure Online Storage requirements your business has...
- SFTP - Secure FTP over SSH. Once your connection is made to the server, all transmissions are encrypted. This is defiantly our preferred and recommended method for secure data transfer. Its easy, secure and can be used with many free tools such as FileZilla or WinSCP (see our separate blog post here).
- FTPS - FTP with SSL/TLS. A standard FTP connection is made then security certificates are used to establish a TLS/SSL encrypted channel for transmission.
- HTTPS - Secure Web Client. Use our Secure Web FTP Client to allow access for you and your clients from your web browser. We provide a signed SSL certificate with all our packages which means your clients will see the 'padlock' symbol when they access your system via their browser and all communications will be encrypted (including login information and file transfers). Check out our 'Ways to Access' page for more details.
Also, remember that with our Web-based Admin Panel you can setup isolated user areas so that each user can only see the files and folders you want them to. This way your users are separated from each other and will not even know other users or folders exist. This user isolation is independent of the method or protocol your users access from, so no matter whether they login from FTP, SFTP or the Web Panel, they will only ever see the data in the location you have allocated them to.
