    File Transfer Protocol (also known as FTP) is a network protocol which is implemented in order to exchange files over a TCP/IP network – that is the Transmission Control Protocol and the Internet Protocol. FTP uses password authentication created by the user. Although user-based password authentication is usually implemented, anonymous user access is also available through an FTP server.

    SFTP protocol has a varying and wide range of operations that are accessible on remote files. Some of its more notable features include resuming interrupted transfers, directory listings, and remote file removal. Compared to other protocols (namely, the Secure Copy Protocol, or SCP), SFTP is more ‘fluid’ as a protocol, and is more platform-independent. As a result, the SFTP protocol is available on a variety of platforms.

    FTP was the first file protocol and is less secure, while SFTP stands for secure file transfer protocol, and as the name suggests is more secure than FTP.

    SFTP is more secure and recommend to use but most hosting use standard FTP

    They are two completely different protocols. FTPS is FTP with SSL for security. ... SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol/Secure File Transfer Protocol) was designed as an extension of SSH to provide file transfer capability, so it usually uses only the SSH port for both data and control.

    FTP - File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is the commonly used protocol for exchanging files over the Internet. FTP uses the Internet's TCP/IP protocols to enable data transfer. FTP uses a client-server architecture, often secured with SSL/TLS. FTP promotes sharing of files via remote computers with reliable and efficient data transfer.

    TCP/IP networks such as the internet use FTP or File Transfer Protocol to transfer files from one computer to another. FTP works on a server and client based architecture, meaning that the client can access any information on the server at any given time. Some servers are password protected so that one can only access the information after entering an ID and password.

    SFTP- SSH File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a part of the SSH protocol suite. Sometimes also called the Secure File Transfer Protocol, it provides implements secure file transfers over SSH. It supports the full security and authentication functionality of the SSH protocol, including SSH keys.

    SSH is a secure way of providing access to all the shell accounts on remote server. The information communicated using SFTP is first divided into small packets and unlike FTP, SFTP uses only one channel for data and control. Before sharing the information between two computers SFTP verifies the identity of client and once a secured connection is established it sends the encrypted information (the encryption cypher is predefined).

    FTP and SFTP are two different file transfer protocols and the major difference between the two is the security associated with the file transfer. FTP was the first file protocol and is less secure, while SFTP stands for secure file transfer protocol, and as the name suggests is more secure than FTP.

    SFTP and FTP are both file transfer protocols, but SFTP is encrypted which makes it more secure.
    We would always recommend using SFTP, to give you added peace of mind

    This is an interesting thread here.

    sFTP uses SSH which is secure and port of SSH is used for accessing account.

    sFTP is recommended for uploading files instead of FTP because of your site can be infected if you use FTP by some virus/malware in your computer.

    FTP uses two separate channels for transfer data which are unencrypted.
    SFTP is more secure way of communication and you will need ID and password to access the information on the server.
