FTP (File Transfer Protocol), is among the most popular means of transferring website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There are a number of pluses of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume a download/upload when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
