Backup Destination FTP with SSL/TLS support

Currently FTP as a backup destination is transmitting credentials and data unencrypted.

Even if used in the same datacenter to transmit unencrypted should not be used.

Support FTP over SSL/TLS.

I'm back with good news! This request has been added to the backlog of one of our feature teams! I don't know what version it will be developed for at this point, but as soon as we're committed to a version for it I'll let you know!

I'd really like to see this feature in WHM anytime soon. FTP is a real no-go as it's plain-text and SSH is not always possible.

Plain FTP is really bad; we can't send private password in plain text. Please add TLS at least

Please add support for this, The option for SFTP is not a suitable substitute as it's "SSH File Transfer Protocol" and not all destinations support it, but almost anything that supports FTP also supports FTP with SSL/TLS.

Hey all! There's a team working in the backup system for version 66, and I'm going to see if they will consider this request for inclusion in the work they're doing. I'll let you know what I find out!
