Melissa is in the process of removing our FTP server and transitioning to HTTPS instead. Many browsers have already stopped support of connecting to FTP. Although the data on the FTP directory is not sensitive data, Melissa is transitioning all of our processes and access points to a more secure version when possible. Additionally, we believe HTTPS will be much easier to use and fully supported by almost all applications.
What this means is that if you have a link that points to ftp://ftp.melissadata.com, that link will no longer work in the near future. We are replacing those links with one that starts with Https://download.melissadata.com.
If you have saved links in your email, please grab a new link in a current update email or contact Melissa technical support.
