FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods of sending website files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are several advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
