What is Monsta FTP?

Monsta FTP is a web-based FTP client, developed in PHP & AJAX, you can use to manage your website through your browser, edit code, upload and download files, copy/move/delete files and folders - all without installing any desktop software.

Why is it better than desktop FTP software?

Monsta FTP is your file manager in the cloud. Traditionally, FTP software is downloaded and/or purchased and installed on the user's desktop. Every time a user upgrades their desktop this process needs to be repeated. In situations where you're using a third-party desktop, such as at an Internet cafe, you may not be able to install your own software. With Monsta FTP you can access your install from any device, anywhere.

Is it secure?

We recommend using your Monsta FTP install over SSL to protect your data while transiting your network, however FTP itself is not secure, so we always recommend using Monsta FTP's SFTP/SCP (secure FTP) connection option, where possible.

Is it customizable?

With the Business Edition you can completely customize the user interface, including: fixing your host address/es; disabling any login form, toolbar, and menu options; restricting access to specific IP addresses; and more. In the Host Edition you can also add your own logo and color scheme, and enable logging in directly from your own customer panel.

Is it free to use?

Our Lite Edition includes basic FTP functionality, like file and folder uploading/downloading, and is free to use, always. If you're looking for more functionality, like on-screen file editing, customizable interface, and rebranding, we have paid upgrade options available.
