FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread methods for sending web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There are a number of advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download when there is some problem with the connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the very best option particularly if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
