FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous methods of transferring web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will cope with the rest. There’re several benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there is some problem with the connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the ideal option particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
