Discover more about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), represents one of the most widely used ways to transfer files between a computer system and a server. With FTP software such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag & drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software will take care of all the rest. There are a number of advantages of employing FTP, among them the ability to resume an upload/download in case there is some problem with the connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the best option when you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the Internet sites that you have created directly from them, without having to make use of any 3rd-party software.
