FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most popular means for uploading and downloading website files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of pros of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
