File Transfer Protocol, or FTP, is among the most famous means for exchanging website files between a PC and a web server. With FTP client software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in either direction and the software itself will deal with all the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, including the ability to restart a download/upload when there is a problem with the FTP connection and the ability to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or other information, which makes it the very best solution particularly in case you need to grant a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to resort to any 3rd-party software.
