How to Get Started?

You can get your Cloud FTP /SFTP / FTPS Server instantly by signing up for a free account on DriveHQ. Once your account is verified, you can use any FTP Client software to access your FTP server. We have tested FileZilla (Windows, Mac & Linux), CuteFTP, WsFTP, SmartFTP, CoreFTP, WinSCP, Fetch, CyberDuck and FlashFXP.

Configure FileZilla with DriveHQ FTP Server

It also works with most FTP-enabled web publishing software (e.g. Adobe Dreamweaver), FTP data backup software, IP phone voice logging service, data management software (e.g. Uniform Solutions) and content creation / management software. FTP-enabled scanners/all-in-one printers can scan to our FTP. IP cameras/DVRs must use CameraFTP Service instead.

DriveHQ offers FileManager for iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, Windows and Mac. It works like an FTP client, but it has more DriveHQ cloud features than a regular FTP client. Moreover, our FTP server is compatible with numerous FTP APPs on iOS and Android. We have created FTP Setup Guide documents for the following popular FTP APPs:
