How to transfer files from one FTP server to another

Are you still using command to transfer files from one FTP server to another or downloading files to local disk first then reuploading to another server manually? Have you ever thought about using some tool to move files from one FTP to another automatically?

Easiest way to transfer files from one FTP server to another

In my opinion, since these files already have been uploaded in FTP server online through a host, I highly recommend you to try MultCloud, because I think it’s the easiest way to sync, backup and copy from one FTP to another.

MultCloud is a multi-cloud management application, which allows you to sync, backup and transfer files from one server to another and you do not need to download files from the source FTP server and upload to the destination server anymore. Just use MultCloud to connect both sites and drag files from source site and drop to destination server, then MultCloud will do transfer for you automatically, which really saves your time!


Before using MultCloud, you should register at first.

Create an MultCloud Account

Clouds supported by MultCloud are: Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, Amazon S3, Amazon Cloud Drive, SugarSync, Alfresco, Hubic, Evernote, OneDrive, MEGA, CloudMe, Cubby, MyDrive, WEB.DE, Yandex, HiDrive, MySQL, Flickr, MediaFire, ownCloud, ADrive, BaiDu and WebDav.

You can follow these steps to access and manage your FTP server files using MultCloud:

  1. Visit MultCloud or enter into your browser.
  2. Sign up as the above picture. Email, username and password are needed to finish creating an MultCloud account.
  3. Select FTP and add it to MultCloud as the following picture:
  • Display Name: This depends on you, An easy-to-remember and easy-to-distinguish one is better.
  • FTP Server : Your FTP server url
  • FTP Username : Your FTP server username
  • FTP Password : Your FTP server password

After you have added two FTP in MultCloud, you can not only transfer files from one FTP server to another by dragging, but also move files with “Copy” and “Copy to” options. These two options are similar as Windows’s “Copy&Paste” and “Move”. Now you can even do scheduled FTP transfer with MultCloud.
