Learn about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - what they are and when you will need them.
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous ways to transfer web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can make a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There’re a number of advantages of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download when there is a problem with the connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the very best solution in case you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use 3rd-party software.
