FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used methods for transferring website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing FTP, including the ability to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution especially if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.
