Learn more about what FTP really is, what it does and what is the main advantage of acquiring multiple FTP Accounts.
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, represents one of the most widespread means for transmitting web files between a PC and a server. With FTP software like FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire folders in either direction and the software itself will take care of all the rest. There are several pluses of using FTP, among them the ability to resume a download/upload in case there’s some problem with the FTP connection or the possibility to set up different FTP accounts. Thanks to the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can access only certain folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mail accounts or other information, which makes it the best solution if you need to give a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous website building tools like Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the websites that you’ve created directly from them, without having to use any third-party software.
