Despite the fact that the FTP protocol is about 40 years old (it was born in the 70s'), it's still one of the best ways to transfer files between a client and a server. To such an extent that there are loads of different clients to carry out these transfers, being FileZilla one of the most popular ones around.
An alternative to FileZilla
But there's life beyond this client, as you've probably imagined. This File Transfer Protocol offers us other options, such as Cyberduck for instance, that despite offering us free open-source versions, also provides us with a paid version for Windows 10, giving us an extra layer of security that other clients don't.
It's a file transfer client that's not only limited to the FTP protocol as it's also compatible with SFTP, WebDAV, S3, Blackbaze b2, and OpenStack Swift. That means that you can upload any kind of file to a hosting service with the same simplicity as ever.
