File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most widespread means for sending website files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will handle all the rest. There are several advantages of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload if there’s a problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal option especially if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
