Find out about FTP accounts as well as about FTP in general - exactly what they are and when you will be needing them.
File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most widely used methods of sending web files between a PC and a server. With an FTP program like FileZilla, you can connect to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or whole directories in either direction and the software will take care of the rest. There are a number of pros of using FTP, including the option to resume a download/upload if there is a problem with the connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can access only particular folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other information, which makes it the ideal solution particularly if you have to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without any 3rd-party software.
