What is FTP?

Definition of FTP

FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. It is a way to copy files from one computer to another. It allows people to transfer information over the Internet or between servers. FTP is a very common way to transmit large amounts of data quickly. There are many public FTP libraries where files can be uploaded onto a server and then be accessed by anyone who has FTP to download those files. FTP is also an easy way to build web pages on your home computer and then transfer those files onto your web hosting server. FTP software is widely available and inexpensive.
