What is FTP?

FTP stands for "File Transfer Protocol." It is software that allows you to copy files from your own computer to the server where your website resides, quickly and easily. If you can move files from one directory on your computer to another, you can use FTP. An FTP program never actually deletes or moves files from your computer. Instead, it copies them. That way you always have a copy on your own computer as a backup.
