FTP (File Transfer Protocol), represents one of the most popular means of transmitting website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re several benefits of employing FTP, including the ability to resume a download/upload when there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the best option in case you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to use any 3rd-party software.
