FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular means for transmitting web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will take care of the rest. There are several benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best solution especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.
