FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous means of transmitting files between a computer system and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will do the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to use 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 other info, which makes it the best solution especially when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without having to use third-party software.
