FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most commonly used methods for exchanging files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will do all the rest. There’re a number of pros of using FTP, among them the ability to resume an upload/download if there is a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option if you need to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
