One of the features you have to look for in an online multimedia storage service is its capability for automatic FTP download.

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. This is one of the many ways you can opt to send, receive and manage files online. This service is important, especially when you are managing your own website.

When you are able to automate FTP download, you’ll only be asked to provide configuration settings during the first session. The settings will serve as guidelines for subsequent sessions and will ensure that the necessary files are uploaded or downloaded automatically at the right time and to the right location.

Depending on the features provided by your chosen service such as SmartFile, you may specify the files you wish to queue for automatic FTP upload or download according to their timestamps or file size. You can also automate their conversion to a different file name and the deletion of source files once the transfer has been completed. Higher-end servers also allow users to configure settings for setting access permissions and automate the process for subsequent sessions or transfers.

We offer various FTP features you can use to make managing files online convenient for you. Sign up for our 14-day free trial today and earn the opportunity to try a business-class FTP server that offers a full list of features for automation.
