What's FTP? What?s an FTP account? When do you need one?
FTP, which is short for File Transfer Protocol, is among the most commonly used means for transferring web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP program such as FileZilla, you can establish a connection to your website hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in both directions and the software itself will handle the rest. There are several pluses of employing File Transfer Protocol, including the ability to resume an upload/download if there is some problem with the FTP connection or the ability to have different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can create FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, email accounts or any other info, which makes it the best solution particularly if you have to provide a web designer with access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with famous apps such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the website content that you have created directly from them, without any 3rd-party software.
