Publish to external FTP

It would be great to be able to FTP changes to my personal server that hosts my website, verses downloading the files and manually uploading them.

    I have to totally agree! I have several websites that I manage with the classic FTP and be able to upload the files directly from WebFlow would give a touch of professionality to all the system. Having to download the files and then load them to the external ftp is just a waste of time.

    This would actually be a really great feature. Setting up FTP credentials in the project and then just simply publishing to ftp.

    Any News about this feature?

    I don't understand why this feature isn't requested by more people. A lot of people I work for have already their own hosting because it's cheaper for them.

    I 'get' that Webflow would prefer everyone to sign-up to their hosting plans. Unfortunately, the Webflow hosting fees are way too high for pro designers. Further, many require cPanel hosting for the extra functionality including email admin. For these reasons, pro designers will never be able to consider Webflow hosting, so why 'punish' us for not wishing to use your hosting plans?  FTP upload would make our daily tasks so much easier.

    I voted this 3 votes. This is a necessity. I understand the conflict of interest with Webflow hosting, but this should be a given if Webflow's goal is to provide the best service in this web space. If Webflow's hosting plans offer the best value, there shouldn't be a problem with people migrating their hosting away from Webflow.

    Using Webflow hosting for my clients would significantly increase the cost to business for the hosting service I provide as I also provide email so I would then be paying for web hosting twice. FTP would significantly improve the workflow and experience of using Webflow for all my sites with the many small changes I make to them continuously. Don't mind paying additionally for CMS as this is easier for me to sell on to clients than straight forward small sites.

    This post is from January, 2017. It look likes that it's not so urgent for Webflow, what I regret. For me and for now the reason not to start with Webflow. I understand that Webflow try to sell their own hosting, but a lot of websigners do have their own servers.
