FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular methods of exchanging web files between a computer system and a web server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will cope with the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the very best option particularly when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without the need to make use of 3rd-party software.
