How To
I have some websites hosted at Web Hosting Hub, and occasionally work on websites on other servers. Is there a way to copy files directly from another FTP server to my Web Hosting Hub FTP server? Of course I can download a file from server A to my desktop and then upload it to server B, but that's a waste of time (and bandwidth) when I don't need the file on my desktop. I'd like to eliminate the "middle man".

Hello ToddBradley,

Unfortunately, the FTP programs that you use on your computer are generally server-client, so you would need to copy down to your client (your computer)before copying files up to the server. IF your other hosting server has an FTP option where you can designate the ftp server and user on Web Hosting Hub, then it would work. Otherwise, there is no way to do this.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
