Discover FTP accounts as well as about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will require them.
FTP, which is an acronym for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular means of exchanging files between a computer and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in both directions and the software itself will deal with the rest. There are several pluses of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart a download/upload when there is some problem with the connection and the possibility to have different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the best option especially if you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.
