FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most famous means of transmitting website files between a computer system and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There are several pros of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best option especially if you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
