File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most famous methods of transferring website files between a PC and a server. Using FTP software such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There are several benefits of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there’s a problem with the connection and the possibility to use different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal option in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the sites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to make use of any third-party software.
