I have a small business website that once in awhile I need to upload files to. Before recently I've been keeping an
ftp login string in my password manager, that looked as such:
I would then copy and paste it into the address bar of the Windows Explorer:
that will open up files that are hosted on the web server. I can then upload, rename & delete files, etc.
So then someone told me that sending my credentials via plain
ftp protocol is very unsafe and suggested using
ftps instead. Unfortunately, if I replace the protocol with
ftps in the string above, Windows doesn't seem to know how to handle it.
How do you guys upload files to the web server in a secure way? Preferably something that works with Windows (and namely Windows Explorer)?
PS. I did my research and someone recommended using Swish. I tried, but the thing is so buggy that it would literally crash my Windows Explorer that would require later reboot just to get my Windows back.
