not ncftp please... but probably they really mean ftp

ncftp sucks, sorry (was its user until stumbling on lftp which *is* a proper ftp shell, like zsh is a proper shell).

rsync is what came to my mind first upon spotting the RSS headline *but* I guess whether a lot virtual hosting providers do that... (on a dedicated server or VPS one must be crazy to use FTP wilfully)
