FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods of sending website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re several advantages of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume a download/upload if there is some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email 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 popular web design applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
