What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP, which denotes File Transfer Protocol, is among the most popular methods for exchanging files between a PC and a web server. With an FTP client like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will do all the rest. There are a number of pluses of using FTP, including the possibility to resume an upload/download in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection and the ability to set up different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to specific folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other info, which makes it the perfect solution if you need to provide a web designer with access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the website content that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.
