What is FTp?

An FTP Client is software that is designed to transfer files back-and-forth between two computers over the Internet. In this case, from yours to ours. FTP client software needs to be installed on your computer and can only be used with a live connection to the Internet.

FTP is the simplest and most secure way to exchange files over the Internet. Whether you know it or not, you most likely use FTP all the time for downloading MP3s, for example. Some people find traditional FTP software not very user friendly.
