FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol
FTP is used to transfer your files from your local computer to your web space. To use FTP you will usually need a piece of software called an FTP Client. Many are free to download, e.g. Filezilla, Smart FTP, BulletProof FTP and the Firefox browser add-on FireFTP.
To use FTP you will need the following:
- A web hosting package with FTP access
- The FTP host name
- Your FTP username
- Your FTP password
