Learn about FTP accounts and about FTP as a whole - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is one of the most famous ways to transmit files between a computer and a web server. Using an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will do the rest. There are several pros of employing FTP, including the possibility to restart a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, emails or other info, which makes it the very best option particularly when you have to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building apps like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without the need to make use of any 3rd-party software.
