What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When will you be needing one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most popular ways to transfer website files between a PC and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software itself will cope with all the rest. There are a number of pluses of employing FTP, among them the ability to restart an upload/download when there’s some problem with the connection and the possibility to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the perfect solution when you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building applications such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.
