Commander One is a reliable FTP client for Mac OS

Besides being a perfect dual-panel file manager, Commander One also flawlessly combines FTP client for Mac as well as cloud computing manager features and provides you with the built-in Mac Terminal emulator making it super easy for you to manage all the system processes.
Optimized for both Apple silicon and Intel

Dual-panel versatility is amazing

The two-panel system is a gift for those who work with several directories and files at the same time every day. Jumping back and forth across windows is not convenient at all. With Commander One you can have both folders open in the same window. Commander One's interface lets you open an unlimited number of tabs, supports any file types, offers the ability to set up your very own hotkeys for any action, and way more.
Support for hotkeys
Speed up your work on the computer when performing the most frequent tasks. Copy, delete, duplicate, show package content, reload, edit, and much more with a snap of a finger. Set up your own key combos for lightning-fast work with files. Any action is done much faster with your favorite hotkeys. Leave your mouse behind and move faster with hotkeys.
Command Line
Command Line bar offers great control over your files. It is a useful addition for advanced Macbook users and not only. There is no longer need to waste time launching the Terminal as a separate application. Your file structure and system processes are in good hands with the built-in Mac Terminal emulator.

Convenient file operations

Besides being a great FTP software for Mac, Commander One is probably the fastest way to copy, move, delete the files, and more. Be able to add all operations to the queue and execute them one after another, search for files using regular expressions. For quick acquaintance with the contents of the file, Commander One offers you a built-in viewer. In addition the app has root access to guarantee you complete control over your files and folders.

Reviews by popular media

Frequently Asked Questions
The most simple way to FTP from Mac is to use Finder. However, the functionality is rather limited by using this method. That is why it is recommended to use third-party apps like Commander One.
The main work with the FTP server is carried out through FTP clients. Such programs facilitate quick access to server files and allow them to change, add, delete. Due to the simple interface, even a novice user will not get confused in the program.
If you want to have the most convenient way to transfer files to FTP servers without any restrictions (like in browsers, Finder, etc), FTP clients are your number one choice.
There are lots of criteria to take into consideration when choosing an FTP Mac. Some users prefer support for different protocols, some users want their FTP client to have a dual-pane interface, others want it to support encryption feature. So choose wisely taking into account the features you need for certain purposes.
Yes, Commander One is a secure FTP client for Mac. The app uses the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a 256-bit key length to translate data into a different form so that only people who know the password (decryption key) can read and manage it.
