FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular means for transferring website files between a computer and a server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There’re several pros of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection or the option to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other info, which makes it the best solution particularly in case you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
