I believe in sharing…

Forum Marketing Profits EXPOSED: How To Turn Online Forums Into An Unlimted Passive Income Stream And Recurring Source Of Traffic For Your Online Business


FTP is Easy as 123!

If you own a website and do your own updating, you will need to know some basic knowledge about using FTP software. It can certainly make jobs easier and faster for file uploading and downloading.

FTP (file transfer protocol) is a standard network that downloads and uploads files from one host to another host over a TCP-based network.

A TCP (transmission control protocol) based-network helps to transfer data and insures that no data is lost during transmission.

Both FTP and TCP play an important part in transferring files. It is necessary to learn how to download and upload files from one computer to a host computer and vice-versa (e.g., uploading a Web page file to a server).

Many people use a cPanel which all website hosting sites provide. However, for the sake of simplicity, I am going to focus solely on the FTP system. This system dates back to decades. If you do a search for an FTP client, you will notice there are plenty of free ones to choose from. I personally prefer to use “FileZilla” from Mozilla Firefox, but WinSCP and CuteFTP are good as well.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial that shows you just how to get started.

==> FileZilla

Once you get the hang of it all, FTP programs are very easy to use. In no time, you will be able to drag files back and forth, upload and / or download with ease.
