@BadSkillz Thanks. By FTP I meant - over SSL. If not - the password is easily compromised of course.

@Jeroen-ITNerdbox Thanks. (I assume you meant to post that as a comment to my question.)

Thanks. But perhaps I wasn't clear enough in my question. I'm asking about using a shared web-hosting service and therefore have limited control over their server's setup.

comment Does an HTTPS proxy encrypt traffic between proxy client and server for HTTP requests?
+1 for a clear answer. Though, one point: When using an HTTPS proxy (not SOCKS) will the browser do the DNS lookup through its ISP, or will it delegate that to the proxy? If it does it through the ISP then if the goal of the attackers is to guess the identity of the sites that you are talking to - even an HTTPS proxy won't help.

@SteffenUllrich a) Thanks. b) According to this answer it does. (See "Supported in FF 33+" on that answer.) (I haven't used a proxy yet. This is a preliminary question.) c) If you don't add the @ispiro before your comment, I don't get notified of it.

I've edited the question to make it clear that I'm asking about a case where the connection to the proxy is secure.

It looks like you're answering about a regular TLS connection. That's not my question. I'm asking about when browsing is done through a proxy-server.

ISP at least would know the target IP address, because this is needed to route your data to the target - I don't understand. Are you referring to the proxy's IP? If not - why would the ISP need to know the IP?
