Do I need FTP?

Uses for FTP Software

Many new web site owners do not know HTML or any scripting languages and want to build a simple website. If that is the case for you, you should consider using web templates that are web site outlines provided by your web hosting company and you simply fill in your information.

FTP also allows you to create or delete directories, rename files, upload and download files. You can work with large groups of files and images at one time and transferring files is really quick and easy. FTP is very powerful and used widely plus FTP software is easy to learn. If you have any web site needs beyond the basic personal website, you should consider using FTP which opens up tons of options.
