What is FTP

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is one of the ways to communicate over the Internet. It was invented in the 80s and heavily used for fileshares in the early 00s. In fact there’re many fileshares that use FTP right now: website hostings and microstock websites.

A high-performance 64-bit linux distribution that runs smoothly on both low-end and modern hardware. Has a retro-style appearance that feels familiar for Windows 7 and XP users. Recommended specs: 8. FileZilla for Windows XP (32/64 bit) FileZilla for Windows XP - a small program designed to connect an FTP server.

FileZilla Client is a free and open-source FTP, file transfer protocol, tool that functions with FTPS and SFTP.The intuitive user interface allows for people to easily transfer and download files with their devices and hosting accounts within the terms of the GPL: General Public License.

There are two parties in this communication: an FTP client and FTP server. Microstocks like Shutterstock or Adobe Stock are running FTP servers and contributors use FTP clients like FileZilla or Xpiks to access these servers. Each contributor has a “home” directory on that server and can use it to store files, which in case of microstocks are photos, vectors and others.

Why microstocks use FTP

Contributors are rarely uploading only few files, usually they upload batches of many photos, illustrations or videos. Web uploader in any microstock like Shutterstock or Adobe Stock is less suited for bulk uploads. Thats why instead of inventing something new they decided to use already existing technology (FTP) which is better suited for bulk file operations over the network.

What is FileZilla

FileZilla is one of the FTP clients that can help you login and transfer files to FTP servers. It’s history spans over almost 20 years since it was first released in 2001. FileZilla is available across all desktop platforms: you can use it on Windows, macOS and Linux.

Interface

FileZilla interface is following a popular practice of 2-panel file managers like Total Commander or Norton Commander. However, left part always shows local computer and right part shows remote server. Top panel allows you to type in address and credentials to remote FTP server.

FileZilla interface is basic and a little bit rough and it takes a little bit of time to get used to it especially if you’re new. However, it is one of the most featured FTP clients on the market so it definitely pays off to master it.

How to upload to Shutterstock using FileZilla

Find FTP address, username and password

First step in FTP upload is connection to FTP server. In order to connect you have to know address of FTP server and username and password. All microstock use different addresses and you have to find it in the settings. On Shutterstock you can find it on the Upload page in the Contributor Portal. Below the file selection tool you can find FTP server settings:

Now you can enter Shutterstock FTP server address ftp.shutterstock.com and your username and password into FileZilla Address panel and press “QuickConnect”. If you entered everything correctly, right panel with “Remote files” will not be empty anymore.

Drag’n’drop your local files to FTP server

After you connected to FTP server, you’re good to upload your files. Just find local directory on the left (in “Local files”) and drag it to the “Remote files” part.


Wait for Shutterstock to process FTP upload

After you uploaded the files, Shutterstock will process them and add them to your “Portfolio -> Submit content” page where you can add keywords and description. Allow some time for processing depending on a number of files you uploaded. Also if their servers are busy then it may take even more time.

Ultimately, you can find your files in the portal:

Filezilla Xp

That’s pretty much it. This process is OK if you upload to one microstock, but if you’re uploading to few of them, it may become too time-consuming. Xpiks allows you to upload to any number of microstocks at the same time - check out basic uploading tutorial.

Useful links

In this tutorial, you will learn how to use SFTP with FileZilla to securely transfer and manage files on RunCloud server.

Table Of Contents

FTP is not secure

FTP (File Transfer Protocol) uses clear text for all transmissions. Anyone is able to read the FTP usernames, passwords, commands and data by packet capture (sniffing) on the network. By default, RunCloud Firewall blocks FTP (port 21) at your server. You are recommended to use SFTP for file transfer instead.

Filezilla

Tip: You can use RunCloud File Manager in RunCloud panel for simple file management.

What is SFTP?

SSH or Secure File Transfer Protocol (SFTP) is a secure file transfer protocol for file access, transfer, and management. It adapts the Secure Shell (SSH) protocol with encryption and secure authentication on both server and client.

SFTP provides two user-authentication options when connecting to your server: a)passwords or b)SSH2 key-based authentication. The SSH Keys is more secure than password.

FileZilla is a free, open source FTP client that supports FTP, SFTP, FTPS. It is available for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Download FileZilla Client.
