Overall Satisfaction with FileZilla

I use FileZilla to download and upload documents from our web servers in instances where files are not managed through Git. FileZilla has a simple and easy to use interface that makes accomplishing these tasks quick and painless. We can also store some of our SFTP information in the application so that we do not have to reconfigure each use.
  • Safe and secure SFTP connections.
  • Quickly transfer files.
  • Nothing I can think of!
  • Free and useful.
  • Little to no training required.
The only alternatives we use are Git and the built-in SFTP client inside Dreamweaver. Both have different use cases and help us accomplish different tasks. FileZilla is great for migrating an entire server or website and transferring files between two locations when you are not modifying any code in the process.
I have never needed to contact their support team or do any of my own self service support. The product works as advertised and is pretty self explanatory. If you are comfortable moving files between folders on your computer using the operating system's file manager then you could pick up using FileZilla easily.

Do you think FileZilla delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Would you buy FileZilla again?

Yes

FileZilla is an easy-to-recommend software product because it is so easy to use. Once an SFTP connection has been configured in the application it is easy for a non-technical user to repeatedly use the tool. The interface is basically a side by side file browser that you can drag files between your local computer and the webserver.
