What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you need one?
FTP, which stands for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most famous means for transferring website files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in both directions and the software will deal with all the rest. There are several pluses of employing FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download in case there’s a problem with the FTP connection and the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or any other information, which makes it the perfect option particularly when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the Internet sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
