FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread methods of transferring files between a computer and a server. Using an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, including the option to restart an upload/download when there’s a problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
