Discover FTP accounts and about FTP in general - what they are and when you will be needing them.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular ways to transfer web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will deal with the rest. There’re a number of pluses of using FTP, among them the option to resume an upload/download when there’s a problem with the connection or the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, emails or any other info, which makes it the very best option particularly in case you have to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to make use of any third-party software.
