FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most famous ways to send website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP client such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re a number of pluses of employing FTP, among them the possibility to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the perfect solution particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular apps such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any third-party software.
