FTP is the network protocol enabling the transmission of files between remote computers over the Internet and lies in the basis of important online operations such as uploading files onto a web hosting server located website and downloading music from the web. With the help of special FTP-optimized applications, called FTP clients, users can perform actions that are crucial for their online presence - uploading and updating their websites without any hassle.
How to upload files with Filezilla FTP client
With the FTP upload files functionality typical of FTP client tools, users are authorized to upload a copy of the website located on their local computers to the FTP server and update automatically new and modified files at any time. For that purpose they need to have an FTP client downloaded from the Internet and a host computer where their website will be located, plus the respective login details such as personal username, password and FTP address given by the web hosting provider.
To implement the upload action through the FTP client users must simply select the directory on their PC where the files they wish to upload are located and select the upload option. That's it - as simple as copying files from one directory or folder on their PC, except that this time the copied folder/file will be moved to a distant location.
