This article covers configuring Remote SFTP and FTP Backups in cPanel.
Despite the similar sounding acronyms, FTP is not the same protocol as SFTP, though they can both be used to send or receive files. FTP is an older protocol that is insecure (non-encrypted) by default. SFTP is a different protocol that uses SSH (Secure Shell) to securely send and receive files. If possible, you should use SFTP or FTPS (secured FTP) to send your backups to the remote server. HostDime's backup solution supports both protocols.
If you don't already have remote backup space, please take a look at the HostDime website to view our packages: https://www.hostdime.com/services/remote-storage/
