FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular methods for transmitting web files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will take care of all the rest. There are several benefits of using File Transfer Protocol, among them the option to resume an upload/download if there’s a problem with the connection or the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other information, which makes it the best solution particularly when you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to use any third-party software.
