FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widespread means of sending files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with the rest. There are a number of pros of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly in case you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.
