Actually I see something that may be confusing in my original post.
I referred to the word 'ftps' which can be taken two ways. I was not referring to ftp-secured but rather a plural version of ftp used as a verb. Multiple ftp actions.
The problem that I had was that after my host switched my domain to https Tools would not longer do an ftp for me. Is there some change that I need to make to my network folder settings since Filezilla still manages to do an ftp with no change?
