AceFTP is a very easy-to-use File Transfer Protocol. I've been designing webpages for nearly three years and have used several FTP programs, from very basic and inexpensive to the more intricate and expensive. This program is very good for the price.

All FTPs accomplish the same task: They transfer files from your local computer onto a server. AceFTP's user interface is clean and uncomplicated. Adding a server is easy, just click on "Connect", add the server and log-in information, and click on "Connect" again. AceFTP presents as a drag-and-drop file manager so that you can drag files from your personal computer onto the connected server.

The people at Visicom inform me that, although AceFTP is not freeware because it will intermittently flash information regarding purchase/registration, it is not a time-limited download, which means that you can continue to use the software on an unlimited basis, providing you can tolerate the intermittent nag screens.

I recommend AceFTP 1.30 for those just learning FTP, because of its clean interface and available help file. More experienced users will find using AceFTP a breeze!
