FTP, or File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most widely used means for transferring files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There are several pros of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s a problem with the connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution in case you have to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of third-party software.
