FTP: Getting Started Guide

What is FTP:

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol,and is used to upload and download from your web hosting service account. FTP is a good way to exchange your files to the server because you can move all your files at once to the directory on your server instead of uploading one file at a time.

Connecting to FTP can be done in several ways. You can get connected to your server using a program like FileZilla, or you can use an HTML manager like DreamWeaver or Notepad++.you will just need to use the correct login credentials to connect.
