FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most widely used means for transmitting website files between a PC and a server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload when there is a problem with the connection or the option to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to 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, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution when you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.
