FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous means for transferring web files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There are several advantages of employing FTP, including the ability to resume a download/upload when there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
