FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most commonly used ways to transfer files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There are a number of advantages of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there is a problem with the connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other information, which makes it the very best solution in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
