SFTP - Using Secure FTP
UNHINFO Hosting - Using Secure FTP (SFTP)
"Standard" vs. "Secure" FTP
FTP is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol. FTP is used to copy files from one computer to another. That is all that it lets you do. Secure FTP, or SFTP, is essentially the same thing but all communication between you and the remote host (Web server) is encrypted. This means, among other things, that your username and password are transmitted securely when you log onto the UNHINFO Web server. You can only use SFTP to connect to the UNHINFO Web servers.
SFTP can be used on multiple computer platforms (Mac, Windows, etc.), and the software most commonly used is either FileZilla or Dreamweaver.
