UltraFTP: a secure Windows 64-bit FTP client

Easily manage multiple sites, sessions, and more.

UltraFTP: 64-bit, UHD, native Unicode, easy to look at, and fun to use.

UltraFTP is a personal, stand-alone FTP client built upon the framework of other IDM applications like UltraEdit and UltraCompare. Designed with maximum usability and performance in mind, UltraFTP offers full theme support, session support, an explorer interface, drag-and-drop transfers, and more. Even better, UltraFTP integrates with UltraEdit/UEStudio, UltraCompare, and UltraFinder to provide a seamless editing and publishing experience both on local and remote systems. UltraFTP supports FTP, SFTP, and FTPS protocols.

Full feature list


With the ability to share FTP accounts between UltraEdit and UltraFTP, the whole suite becomes a complete and integrated solution for my workflow. I can glide from edit to FTP back to edit effortlessly. Maintaining a single set of account settings for all of it removes the last speed-bump in my routine. See more testimonials...Daniel D.

JUST RELEASED: v17.10 – See what's new below:

New: Wide screen mode

Maximize your screen space with v17.10's new wide screen mode option in the Layout tab! Wide screen mode arranges your split local and remote panes horizontally instead of vertically. Even better, you can use this option with the "Remote only" layout as well.

New: Import and export FTP accounts

Want to pull your FileZilla accounts into UltraFTP without having to recreate them? No problem! The new import accounts feature allows you to automatically import accounts from FileZilla, WinSCP, or CyberDuck with a single click. You can also import from an FTP accounts file from another IDM application, as well as a generic CSV. Want to back up your UltraFTP accounts or move them to another computer? It's simple now with the export accounts option, allowing you to save them to a location of your choosing.

New: Set permissions for all subfolders/files

UltraFTP now allows you to optionally apply permissions changes to a folder and/or all of its subfolders and all files contained within it. In addition to setting permissions by checkbox or by number, it's easier than ever to modify permissions on a remote server with the level of granularity you need.

New: "Permissions" and "Owner" columns for remote pane

See the permissions and owner for each file and folder on your remote FTP server. You can sort the remote file listing by permissions or by owner by clicking on its column header.
