Backup to FTP
Handy Backup / Support / How to Backup / Backup to FTP: Aspects of FTP Backup
Storing backups to FTP servers is a good way of securing most important files. The remoteness of the server combined with data compression and file encryption, grant the highest level of security which can not be achieved by removable backup media.
Then, you have to select a reliable FTP backup service provider. It should have a good reputation and a number of positive testimonials from customers. Good pricing is a benefit, not a main principle.
The very process of backing up to FTP consists of copying the files you selected for backup to the FTP server. When using a specialized FTP backup utility, this process is semi-automated - you only need to specify server name and proxy server settings (if you have one).
Don’t forget to schedule your FTP backups. Automation ensures fast and safe restoration of backup when you need it.
