FTP Server – What Is It?

FTP server may refer to the physical machine where data is stored, but it is commonly used for the software application that enables the exchange of files via the File Transfer Protocol. The FTP uses the client-server model to enable the exchange of files over the Internet. This means that the FTP server establishes a FTP connection to accept the requests sent form remote FTP clients (like FileZilla) and executes them, thus letting you download or upload files on the server.

FTP Server Access Modes

FTP servers can be easily set to anonymous or authenticated access mode. The anonymous mode gives users free access to the FTP server via default “anonymous” account. The authenticated mode requires password and account, of course. The FTP server could be configured to allow different levels of access, you can block users from entering certain directories or performing certain actions. You can also disallow some users from using your FTP server at all. If needed you can use secure connections like SFTP or FTPS.
