File Transfer Protocol (FTP), is one of the most widely used ways to upload and download web files between a computer and a web server. With an FTP software program such as FileZilla, you can set up a connection to your web hosting account and drag & drop files or whole folders in both directions and the software will deal with the rest. There’re several pluses of using FTP, among them the option to resume a download/upload in case there is some problem with the connection and the option to create different FTP accounts. With the latter option, you can set up FTP users that can connect only to particular folders in your web hosting account, but no other folders, e-mails or other info, which makes it the best option particularly in case you need to give a web designer access, for example. You can also use an FTP account with popular web design applications like FrontPage or Dreamweaver and upload the web content that you’ve created straight from them, without the need to use 3rd-party software.
