File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most commonly used methods of transmitting files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will handle all the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection and the ability to use different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution especially when you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without the need to resort to third-party software.
