FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous ways to exchange website files between a computer system and a server. With an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will cope with the rest. There’re several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to restart an upload/download when there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the best solution especially when you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to any third-party software.
