How to FTP upload your files

What is FTP? FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol; the protocol used on the Internet for exchanging files. FTP is most commonly used to download a file from a server (host) using the Internet or to upload files to a host.

How does FTP software work?
FTP requires a client (FTP program) installed on your PC to connect to your host, or server. Once you are logged in, you are presented with a directory. If files already exist on your host you can select the download to option and pull files off the FTP server to a specified directory on your computer. If you select the upload option, you must also select your PC directory that contains the files you wish to upload. The files are then copied from one location to the other. It’s like copying files from one directory or folder on your PC, except that one of the folders could be on the East coast and the other folder on the West coast.

Steps to FTP your Files:

1.)   Select FTP software. If you don’t have an FTP program, you will need to download one. Here are some of the more popular free FTP programs:
