FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used methods for uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will cope with all the rest. There are several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect option when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.
