Core FTP is a commercial-grade free FTP client program written in C++. It comes with strengthened file-transfer system, and is one of the three FTP client applications (FileZilla, Core FTP and Cyberduck)) recommended by cPanel. With it, wee can quickly, simply and reliably complete the websites update and maintenance jobs, as well as achieve the purpose of safely uploading data to and downloading data from our FTP servers (via SSL or SFTP).

Core FTP can be called as a currently popular FTP client software that integrates all the key features of many popular FTP clients in one place. For example, it supports SSH, SSL, TLS, SFTP protocols, sever-to-sever file transfer (FXP), drag & drop operation, file edit/view/upload/download, breakpoint resume, firewall, custom commands, URL parse, integration into IE browser, etc. Plus, Core FTP also provides sophisticated scripting, directory synchronization, automatic scheduling, multiple-site connections at the same time, multi-protocol support (FTP, SFTP, HTTP, HTTPS), smart overwrite, integrated HTML editor, and faster file transfer system.

In conclusion, Core FTP’s UI is user-friendly, its usage is simple and convenient, and the transferring speed is relatively satisfactory. But the deficiency is that it does not support the efficient tabbed switch and browse between multiple sites, as well as the import and export of site profiles. In particular, although there are a lot of functions in Core FTP, many of them are more like decorations for common users.
