FTP transfer

When talking about FTP transfer, people may think of FTP client. But usually client is uses to transfer files to server. Notice that here we are talking about is not one FTP but two. So, direct FTP to FTP transfer possible? Yes, it is. Geeks always have methods. They can write complex code, etc. However, most of users are common people. Transfer from FTP to FTP Directly, any suggestions?

Transfer between FTP directly

Let me reiterate why site-to-site FTP transfer is necessary. Many users want to change a server or share some files to another server, so they ask if there's any way to transfer files between two FTP servers (or even different accounts on the same server), without downloading first then re-uploading from a computer. They ask if anyone can suggest a way to directly transfer files from one FTP server to another? What’s more, direct FTP to FTP move can save lots of time.

Now we arrive at a consensus, there is a need to copy from FTP to FTP directly. But how? Today, thanks to the development of computer technology and cloud technology. AOMEI Company developed a free application based on web called MultCloud can help you to achieve direct FTP to FTP transfer, synchronization, and backup.
