What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widely used methods of uploading and downloading website files between a PC and a server. With an FTP software program like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume a download/upload if there is some problem with the FTP connection and the option to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or any other information, which makes it the very best option when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design applications such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
