FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means for transferring website files between a PC and a server. Using FTP client software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload in case there’s a problem with the connection and the ability to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the ideal option particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to resort to any 3rd-party software.
