FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous methods of exchanging files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the perfect solution when you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
