FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most widely used methods of uploading and downloading website files between a computer system and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
