FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used means for transferring files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will handle the rest. There’re several benefits of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the option to use 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, emails or other info, which makes it the very best solution especially when you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.
