Understand more about what FTP is, what it does and what is the advantage of having multiple FTP Accounts.
File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is among the most widespread ways to send web files between a computer system and a server. Using an FTP client program such as FileZilla, you can make a connection to your hosting account and drag ‘n’ drop files or entire directories in either direction and the software itself will take care of the rest. There’re several pluses of employing FTP, among them the option to restart a download/upload if there’s some problem with the connection or the ability to use 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, e-mail accounts or any other info, which makes it the ideal solution if you need to grant a web designer access, for instance. You can also use an FTP account with popular website building tools such as Dreamweaver or FrontPage and upload the web content that you have created straight from them, without having to make use of 3rd-party software.
