FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods for transmitting files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will handle all the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to 3rd-party software.
