What is FTP?
FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is a fast and convenient way to transfer files over the Internet. That’s why many webmasters use FTP for uploading their websites files on their hosting accounts.
This tutorial will show you how to use FileZilla to upload your website. FileZilla is a powerful and free software for transferring files over the Internet. FileZilla is a very popular FTP client and is used by webmasters from all over the world. Here you can download FileZilla software.
Once you have the FileZilla client downloaded and activated on your computer, enter the domain name in the address field (you can also use the server’s IP address).
