FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most famous ways to upload and download website files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the best option particularly if you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
