Web Design/Help Please


Hi, I'm having trouble picking a good FTP client. Can you please give me some advice on comparing FTP clients?
Like why this FTP would be better than the other? Thanks.

Hi Yuki -

It's actually been 3 years since I've had to shop for a FTP client - so there may be some new offerings which you should investigate, but generally speaking I look at reviews on sites like Cnet.com to get good information like that.

I personally use CROSSFTP because it had the most flexible and powerful options.  It's also paid software, unlike many free choices.  For me, it was worth the investment and I still use it today.

I hope this helps - have a great day.

I've been developing websites for almost 20 years. If you have questions like these, I can help! Should I try this myself or hire a professional? What tools do I need? How do I sell products online? How do I make money with my website? Can I create a website without buying expensive software? How do I design a website FAST? How do I market my website? Is a BLOG a website? How do I put video on my website? What is website hosting? When will search engines find my website? OK, I've found a site I like - but now what? Can I make my website a subscription site?


I have over 20 years of practical experience with web-related issues, and some military computer training. I've worked for a computer manufacturer, and own a small technology company specializing in web-design, hosting, and internet media production. I am the webmaster of several sites, and e-newsletter editor for Rotary District 6760 which is comprised of 65 clubs throughout middle Tennessee.

I'd like to say a diploma from a revered educational facility hangs on my wall, and perhaps someday it will. In reality, everything I know has been self-taught, much of it done so in the hallowed halls of that venerable institution called "The School of Hard Knocks". (I have taken courses at a local community college, and received military computer programming training as well.)
