File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most popular means for uploading and downloading files between a computer and a web server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the option to resume an upload/download in case there is some 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 specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the very best solution particularly when you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
