FTP (short for File Transfer Protocol), is among the most famous means for uploading and downloading web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several pros of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload when there’s a problem with the 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 very best option in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without the need to use any third-party software.
