File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most famous means of uploading and downloading files between a PC and a server. Using FTP client software such as FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the possibility to resume an upload/download if there’s some problem with the connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other info, which makes it the very best solution in case you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use third-party software.
