What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need to have one?
FTP, which is an abbreviation for File Transfer Protocol, is one of the most commonly used methods of sending web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP client program like FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software will do all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing FTP, among them the possibility to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the ideal solution especially if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous web design tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
