FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods of transferring web files between a computer system and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There are several pros of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection and the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect option in case you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
