What is FTP? FTP stands for file transfer protocol. It is a protocol that allows you to easily transfer files to and from your computer to a remote computer. For example, if you have a website you can use FTP to transfer files to and from that site. Alternatively you can use your hosting company’s cPanel to do the same.
There are a few good FTP programs that you can download that allow you to use file transfer protocol to manipulate files on your web server. One is FileZilla.
